UberConference has received top honors at two prestigious awards this week. Our team is very grateful for the recognition and quality feedback from our users. We received a Bronze Award in the category of Best Everyday Utility at the User Experience Awards and Silver at the American Business Awards – Telecommunication Company of the Year.

The Stevie American Business Awards are the world’s premier business awards, created to honor and generate public recognition of the achievements and positive contributions of organizations and working professionals worldwide. More than 3,300 entries were submitted to The 2014 American Business Awards and more than 240 executives nationwide participated in judging to determine this year’s Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Award winners.

The UXies are the premier awards for exceptional experience and inspire all technologists to create elegant, human-centered products that solve real customer problems by showcasing next-generation digital products, honoring and celebrating with the most talented UX innovators and highlighting exceptional UX best practices. Our very own Jerome Tave explains the design theory that went into creating UberConference:

This adds to the growing list of awards our team has been fortunate to receive this year. We are excited for what lies ahead and appreciate the kind recognition. Congratulations to all winners and nominees!

We are always looking for new ways to enhance the calling experience for our international customers. We’re pleased today to announce the award-winning experience we offer in the US is now available in our second largest international market, Canada.

“Canadian customers have a fully featured conferencing tool, complete with screen sharing and document sharing, and can look that much more professional with Canadian area codes attached to their designated UberConference lines”, said our CEO and co-founder, Craig Walker.

When you sign up for an UberConference Pro account, you’ll now see Canadian area codes available to set for your local number. Stay tuned, there’s even more cities to come:

“There is no other service here in Canada that even approximates what UberConference does,” said Elise Aymer of EN Consulting in Toronto. “Other conference call services are prohibitively expensive especially for small business and communication groups. I am very pleased with the service so far.”

As always, you can dial-in to join an UberConference call from over 40 countries. Anyone around the world, in any country, can also join an UberConference call through their Chrome browser for free. Test to see if your computer can accept calls here.
