“We’re thrilled to add Zendesk, Esna and UberConference to the Cloud Alliance,” said David Politis, Chairman of the Alliance and CEO of founding member, BetterCloud. “These companies are three of the most dynamic players in this space and we’re confident their contributions to the Alliance will help to further our agenda of advocating for Google Apps specifically and cloud technology in general.”

Google Apps has 5 million businesses as customers, including 66% of the Top 50 startups, and 72 of the Top 100 Universities.

The Google Apps software marketplace has exploded recently. Although there are hundreds of apps in the Google Apps store, a select group of trusted independent software vendors formed the Cloud Alliance, to serve the unique needs of I.T. administrators and Google Apps end-users.

In addition to key whitepapers on Google Apps administration and product demos, the Cloud Alliance website contains webinar replays and the First Annual Benchmark Report For Google Apps. It’s a must-have for any company that’s gone Google, or is even considering it.

A couple of weeks ago, we announced with Google that our teleconferencing product, UberConference, was now integrated with Google Hangouts.  The response we got from that announcement was almost overwhelming.  Our biggest day of new customer signups-ever.

Which is great for us, and we couldn’t be happier or prouder.  But let’s step back a moment and answer the question: why is this a big deal for you?

Well, first of all, UberConference and Google Hangouts are just about perfect matches for one another.  Google Hangouts is a wonderful tool for video conferencing- it’s easy to use, and it works great, provided everyone is sitting in front of a computer that has a video camera, and your internet connection is solid.

But that’s not often the case with real life business calls.  Many times you have callers who are on the road, riding in the back of a cab to the airport, stuck in a hotel room with a bad internet connection or don’t have a webcam immediately available.  Or, frankly, don’t really want to be seen and are in no mood to get dressed at 5 a.m. in Los Angeles for an 8 a.m. conference call with New York.

Enter UberConference.  When you use UberConference with Google Hangouts, you can take the conference call out of the confines of the office and out into the real world where you, your coworkers and your customers are living and working and doing business.
Plus, UberConference allows you to join a Google Hangout without a webcam.  Or at least without turning on your webcam.

Then there’s the size of your conference calls.  Google Hangouts is limited to 15 participants.  By integrating with UberConference, that conference call can now add in another 100 participants.

The UberConference integration with Google Hangouts, however, was only part of the announcement.  At the same time Google also announced its Google Chromebox for meetings.

For small to medium-sized businesses, what’s not to love about this product?  Up until now, if your company did regular video conferencing, you were spending at least $10,000 on hardware for a video conferencing system.

What’s your investment cost with Google Chromebox for meetings?  About $1,500.  The Chromebox hardware package, which includes UberConference, is just under $1,000.  Buy yourself an HD TV for another $500, and you’re set.  You’ve got a complete video conferencing system for a fraction of the cost of existing systems.

And this is just the beginning of innovative, low-cost products we’re going to be rolling out for you.  Stay tuned.

One of the great things about ÜberConference is that you can see who’s on the conference call and who’s talking at any given moment. For instance, the person speaking during your call shows up at the top. Being able to see both who is invited and who has already joined helps kick off the call smoothly by avoiding extra rounds of “Who’s here?” and “Who are we waiting for?” You don’t have to wonder who said what.

We’ve had this unique visual dimension since our launch. Starting today you can also get your own permanent conference URL. When you log into ÜberConference you will see your ÜberConference URL on your dashboard.  It will be a number by default, but you can customize it to be your name or whatever you like. This way it’s easier to remember and share.

 

Just click the “Customize your URL” link and add the text you’d like to have at the end of the link, like uberconference.com/u/myname

New feature for UberConference Pro users! Now you can set up aconference call and not even be on the call. It’s great for times when the boss is running late or when the organizer may not be in the meeting.  We call this new feature “Start Without Me”.

Here’s how:
1. Click the “New Conference” button in the upper right corner of your “My Conferences” page.

2. You’ll see the new feature “Start Without Me” in the scheduling screen pop-up.  Simply click the check-mark area next to the feature to ensure others can join the conference before you get there.

3. Click on the “Create Conference” button. Now others can join your conference with or without you.

This feature is only available to Pro users. Sign up for your pro account and use this feature now.
