#techplantssf-uberconference#techplantssf-treeplanting-sanfrancisco-tech

UberConference is proud to announce our partnership with Friends of the Urban Forest (FUF) for #TechPlantsSF. The goal of this effort is to involve members of the Bay Area tech community in improving San Francisco greenery. SF has only 13.7% tree canopy coverage, ranking 17th among the 20 most populous U.S. cities. Trees are a vital part of what makes the urban ecosystem work, and UberConference is committed to improving the community in which we live and work. We carry this passion into our partnership with FUF.

Friends of the Urban Forest has cared for San Francisco’s trees since 1981. Their mission is to promote a larger, healthier urban forest as part of San Francisco’s green infrastructure through community planting, tree care, education, and advocacy. Since 1981, FUF has planted more than 47,000 trees, totaling 43% of San Francisco’s street tree canopy.

The team at UberConference first became involved with FUF this April at a neighborhood tree planting. Joined by partners at Google, Twitter, Dropbox, YouTube, and Yammer, employees from our team are inspired to help the non-profit raise money and awareness for their mission. If you are interested in participating in this great program, visit the official #TechPlantsSF website to donate and learn more about the initiative.

There will be a welcoming reception on September 3rd hosted by our friends at Twitter. (RSVP by August 26th if you are interested in attending.)

Today we’re really excited to announce two major milestones for ÜberConference. First, we’re launching our ÜberConference Pro product. For just $10 per month, users get a local dial-in number from nearly any area code in the US, up to 40 participants on an ÜberConference call, 500 minutes of outbound dialing to originate conference calls (no need to even dial in!), recurring conferences, unlimited call recording and more. We’re really excited about the Pro product and think you’ll love it. Its the best deal on the planet.

Of course, we’ll always offer a compelling free product as well, which brings me to our second major milestone, which is the public availability of ÜberConference Free. Yes, no longer will new users need to get on a waitlist or be invited to join ÜberConference. Every ÜberConference Free account has unlimited conference calls for up to five participants, and you can easily increase that to 17 max participants by doing various things to make ÜberConference work better for you (like importing your contacts, linking your social accounts, completing your profile, etc.). We launched ÜberConference Free in closed beta back in May and have had tens of thousands of beta users testing the service and providing feedback and product suggestions. We have made a lot of improvements during the beta and we feel the ÜberConference is ready for prime time. We promise to continue to diligently improve the service on an ongoing basis.

So that’s it…thanks for being part of the ÜberConference story and go sign up for an account if you haven’t already. We’d love to hear what you think about it.

It was awesome to sponsor the Founder Showcase, one of the top Silicon Valley startup events. That’s where UberConference was last night, on Microsoft’s Silicon Valley Campus down in Mountain View, CA.

The Founder Showcase began in 2009 as a small quarterly event but now has grown into a 500+ person extravaganza regularly attended by entrepreneurs, investors, and journalists. Startup founders can apply online to pitch at the next showcase in June.

This quarter’s Showcase taught startup attendees “The Future of Funding,” featuring smart, punchy talks by Chris Dixon of Andreessen Horowitz (one of the companies that funded UberConference), andKeith Rabois of Khosla Ventures, on where venture funding has been, since the late ‘80s, and where it’s going.

As a growing startup ourselves, we like to support events like the Founder Showcase. We understand the difficulty it takes to manage and grow a business. That’s why we created UberConference: to help make it easier for communicate with your team, customers, and partners to get things done. It’s a great fit for startups who want a communication tool that provides a high quality experience while saving them money.

If you’re a startup that missed the event, you can use the promo code “showcase” (no quotes) to upgrade your account to Uberconference Pro – limit one code per startup.

Now you can share files from your computer within an UberConference call thanks to the new Box View, even if you don’t have a Box account.

Take any PDF or Microsoft Office file from your computer, click “share file,” choose “computer” and it will appear right in your UberConference window. The files are also sent out at the end of the call in the UberConference call summaries for easy reference.

So simple.

Box View does the hard work of transforming popular office documents and other files into HTML, so they can be displayed in a browser for UberConference users to share and discuss during their meetings. The Box View API powers the fastest, most elegant content viewing experience on the web and on mobile.

The UberConference team is at the first annual BoxDev Conference in San Francisco today to support the Box platform and their Box View API announcement. We were highlighted during the Opening Box keynote by Ryan Damico, Director of Platform at Box, as “a really interesting use case that shows how you’re taking an already great service and adding even more value on top of it.”

Over 1,000 developers and entrepreneurs attend BoxDev for exciting platform product launches, deep-dive technical sessions and thought-leadership sessions on building for the enterprise.
