UberConference is excited to accept TMC’s 2014 Internet Telephony Excellence Award. This is the third year UberConference has won this award and we are honored to be recognized as an innovator in the telephony industry. The award came after a successful week at the ITEXPO West event where our CEO, Craig Walker, was a featured guest on the OTT and UC: The Future of the Telephone Number panel.

Walker also had the opportunity to sit down with Erik Linask, the Group Editorial Director of TMC to discuss UberConference’s role in disrupting the traditional conferencing space. “The funny thing is the things that are frustrating to users haven’t changed in 30 years. It’s dialing some ridiculous access code to get into your call and not knowing who’s in the room when you’re on the call,” said Walker.

“A lot of conference call providers used to give you a wallet card to remember their features. The truth is nobody used these features because nobody remembered to pull out the card. At UberConference, we wanted to change all that. No PINs. No access codes. You just dial a number and you’re on the call. We give you a web address where you can see who’s on the call.”

Another important topic of discussion was catering to the remote workforce with more robust telephony tools. UberConference’s audio heavy interface addresses that challenge with great ease. “Even though conference calling has been around forever, 80% of conference minutes are audio only. If you’re going to have more and more remote people doing it, it’s got to be easier for the remote worker.”

Ah, it’s that time of year again. The air is getting cooler, the leaves are starting to fall, football is coming soon to fill the weekends, and TechCrunch is having another Disrupt conference. Here at ÜberConference we have a very soft spot in our hearts for TC Disrupt. It was just a little over 3 months ago that we took the stage at TC Disrupt NY 2012 and came away with the first place prize and trophy. The entire experience was a blur as we were racing to get the product ready to launch, preparing for the Startup Battlefield, flying the entire team cross country, etc. The time since Disrupt has been pretty crazy as well, as we scrambled to welcome a rush of users, added a bunch of new features, and more. So taking a step back, and catching our breath, we’re really happy about how things have progressed here at ÜberConference in the last 90 days since Disrupt NY.

First and foremost, we’ve done a LOT with the product. You can now create instant conferences, hold an IM conversation during the conference, make an ÜberConference “private” to invited participants, and view an ÜberConference call without having to create an account. There are also deeper integrations with calendars for easier scheduling and Evernote for rich call summaries, as well as many other little improvements. We’re even more excited about all the things we have in the works that are coming out soon.

The other major news was the addition of Andreessen Horowitz as an investor and having Blake Krikorian join our Board. These guys are amazing investors and great partners and we’re extremely happy to be part of both the Andreessen Horowitz and Google Ventures families.

Also, we’re hiring like crazy. We’ve added many great folks in the last few months, and are always looking for more. IOS developer lead? We’re looking for you…you too Android lead. Other SWEs, please come on by for a beer and a chat. We’d love to meet you.

So, in summary, we’re thrilled to be returning to Disrupt. We’ve got a booth there, some cool schwag to give out, new features to demo, and lots of friends to meet. Come visit us at our booth or afterwards for a beer. We’ll be there the whole time.

There is the one little thing of needing to track down what we did with the TechCrunch Disrupt trophy. We’re supposed to give it back on the last day of Disrupt, but with all the excitement, aren’t sure exactly where it is at the moment. I’m sure it will show up…
