It was great being at ITEXPO last week. We met a lot of interesting people at the event and had a great time!

ÜberConference was proud to be a sponsor of StartUpCamp7, a great event for early-stage communications companies to showcase cutting-edge technologies and business ideas. Our CEO, Craig Walker, was one of the judges. He was also part of the panel, The Future of Service Providers – Dumb Pipes or Global Leaders. Here are some pics from the event.

If you were at the event you would have also seen that ÜberConference was sponsoring the front and back of the badges at the event. For those who weren’t there, here is how it looked:

You asked for it, and we delivered. We are pleased to announce a fantastic new addition to our suite of productivity applications with screen sharing. Our award-winning teleconferencing service now supports real-time collaboration with screen sharing. (In addition to recent integrations with Google Hangouts, Google Doc add-ons, and in-conference document sharing.)

Facilitating a screen share is as easy as clicking the “Share Your Screen” button in the bottom left corner of the UberConference dashboard in Google Chrome. Presenters without the UberConference extension will be prompted to install it the first time they screen share, also having the option to share their full screen or a specific tab. Viewers will automatically be able to see the presenter’s screen view on their own screens using any browser.

It’s been a busy time at Firespotter since we started the company and raised our Series A financing from Google Ventures in April 2011. First we launched Nosh, the consumer food app that answers the question “What’s good here?” at any restaurant. We then launched NoshList, an iPad app for restaurants that texts diners when their tables are ready (and we’re seating our 2 millionth diner this month…not bad since it launched just 5 months ago). We also built Jotly, the iPhone and Android app that lets you rate anything. Our latest product, ÜberConference is our first product in the voice communications space. We launched ÜberConference at TechCrunch Disrupt in May 2012 and were overjoyed at winningStartup Battlefield.

As we look back on the past 15 months, we’re very happy with all that’s been done. We are also excitedly looking forward to our increased focus on more and more telephony projects.

With that said, we’re even more excited about the recent closing of ourSeries B financing round, led by the great team at Andreessen Horowitz. Blake Krikorian joins Wesley Chan and me on the Board of Firespotter and we’re thrilled to have Blake with us. This round gives us the firepower to hire quickly and go full bore on all the exciting opportunities in the evolving communications space.

As the proliferation of tablets and mobile devices continues to change the nature of communications, we want to be there leading the charge for innovation. People are still sick of being taken advantage of by their communications providers with their hidden fees, difficult interfaces and clunky solutions. We will always strive to be the “good guys” of communications by being fair, innovative, and relentless in our pursuit of creating the best communications products in the world.

If you are looking to join a great team that is disrupting a huge space, we’d love to talk to you. Check out our jobs page on ÜberConference.com.
