UberConference and Enplug: using visual displays to connect in a new way.

Enplug digital signage is one of the youngest and fastest growing startups in Silicon Beach. They were founded in 2012 and are currently in over 100 cities with around 35 employees. They are in over 400 venues with clients including Audi, Porsche, Marriott, Supperclub, WeWork and Amoeba music.

Enplug’s Plug and Play mini device turns any TV or digital display into an interactive and real-time marketing tool for businesses. After plugging the device into a TV, businesses choose from a wide-array of apps to display including live social media walls, live weather, live news and more.

Their most popular app is the Live Social Wall, which allows businesses to display a real-time feed of any hashtag or username from Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Foursquare, and Yelp.

Businesses can control their Enplug displays from the ‘Enplug Control’ app, available on any smartphone, tablet, or desktop.

Their company, with employees all over the world traveling to onboard new systems, is constantly on the go. They needed a solution that would help them maintain efficiency and was in tune with their focus on design.

“One of the coolest things we do is turn our Enplug displays around the office — which we have about 30 of — into UberConference displays for sales, marketing, engineering, and operations meetings,” said Ryan Gushue, Director of Marketing at Enplug. “We attach a camera to them so people calling in can feel like they are here, in the meeting. With Enplug displays on every major continent, and only 35 employees, the ability to effectively communicate regardless of distance is essential for our growth.”

Things are really rolling here at UberConference. And now it seems we’ve made it to the finals for the Cloud Awards!

In case you didn’t know, the Cloud Awards identify and celebrate excellence in the field of cloud computing, with categories including Best Cloud Infrastructure, Data Innovation of the Year, Developer of the Year, Most Promising Startup (that’s what we’re up for), Web Services Excellence and Best Software as a Service.

UberConference is at the forefront of key trends that are changing the way people communicate in business. In searching for solutions that are simple, flexible, and cost effective, businesses are moving their telephony services to the cloud as supporting technologies evolve and solutions become more stable.

Great news for Google Apps users!  Now you can get ÜberConferencein the Google Apps marketplace, and run it right from your business Gmail or other Google Apps.  Once you add the ÜberConference App, everyone in your Google Apps domain will be able to see ÜberConference in the “More” drop down list of the menu bar.  Just click to log into ÜberConference whenever you need it.

For those that don’t already have an UberConference account, a new one will be created with the user’s Google Apps email.  Gmail contacts will also be automatically synched, making it even easier to get started with UberConference.   When you create conferences you can just type in a few letters to bring up matching names from your contacts and click to add them to the call. UberConference takes care of sending out all the conference info to the email addresses and phone numbers you have saved for your contacts, and authenticates them based on their phone numbers so they can join your conference without entering PINs.

We have had a lot of interest around people wanting to use UberConference in more ways across their businesses and organizations, and think the new Google Apps feature is a first step in doing more in this area.  More enterprise features are coming soon.

ABA

 

Be sure to stop by the UberConference Booth #87 at the ABA Tech Show in Chicago from March 27-29. This year the theme is “Bringing Lawyers & Technology Together“. To recap, UberConference does just that with three features that truly highlight what lawyers need in a conference calling solution. Our CEO Craig Walker, recently posted on this topic and here’s a quick recap:

1. Know who is on the call.
UberConference allows you to see who, exactly, is on this call. These are private, important issues you’re dealing with. You need to know who is on the call, and whether they belong there.

2. Know exactly how long the call lasted.
With UberConference call tracking, you have a record of how long the call actually lasted no matter which phone you used to dial into the call. Lots of firms have ways to track hours on conference calls, but those solutions are limited to your desk phone or require you to enter a useless PIN number for each call. Only UberConference does this automatically every time.

3. Lock the call.
Once you’ve started an UberConference, we show you every person who has dialed into your call. With UberConference, we let you lock in (and more importantly — lock out) participants. Once you have the right people on the call, just hit the lock icon (or press ** from your phone) and nobody else can join your conversation.
