Nominations are open for the Crunchies, TechCrunch’s annual competition and award ceremony to recognize and celebrate the most compelling startups of the year.  This year there’s a new category on the list, Sexiest Enterprise Startup. We’re in it to win it on this one, but we need your help to get there. If you think we’re sexy and you know it, please take a moment to head on over to the Crunchies nominationspage and vote for us for Sexiest Enterprise Startup 2012!

Why vote for us:
Enterprise software doesn’t need to be ugly and clunky.  At ÜberConference, good design and ease of use has been a central part of our philosophy, and it has paid off.  Before our launch, little had changed in audio conferencing in years…people would carry around cards with long PIN numbers and struggle through rounds of “Who just joined?” and “Who said that?” during calls.

ÜberConference’s social caller ID and unique visual interface changes all of that.  Everyone invited to an UberConference call can dial in without PINs, see who’s on the call and who’s talking, and learn more about others on the call.  Plus, call organizers can run meetings smoothly with a full set of features you can just click to use.

ÜberConference is free to try and businesses and enterprises of all sizes can sign up for and manage multiple accounts as easily as managing email through a simple online tool. You can even use it right from Gmail if your company uses Google Apps.

How sexy is that?

Help support the cause by heading over to the Crunchies nominations. Every vote counts.  You can vote multiple times (once a day), so please vote today and keep voting!

Vote now!

Have you ever been stuck on hold waiting for the organizer of a conference call to join? Wouldn’t it be nice if you could do something or communicate with others also waiting on the call to start?  Fear not, as ÜberConference makes the waiting more bearable and even productive by our latest feature, ÜberChat.

When viewing a call in ÜberConference, you can see who is going to be in the call and who is waiting before the conference starts.  You can click around on user profiles to pass the time or learn more about the people on the call.  And now you can send instant messages, like “Hey, when the heck is this call going to start?!?” to others in the call that are viewing the conference online.  Its also really helpful once the call starts as well, so now you can share links, paste in a simple agenda, or pose questions to the other people viewing the ÜberConference without interrupting the flow of the call.  Currently ÜberChat is only available during the call, but we will soon have a way to view the chat record through the call summary. To access this feature while in anÜberConference, click the chat button along the bottom control panel.

The New Year brings out a time for nostalgia and innovation. As pioneers on the timeline of history, we continually look backward to create the ‘new’ going forward. Creativity (and some clever failures) have led from the railroad to the jetway, the cave dwelling to the cottage, and the telegraph to the telephone.

Ondi Timoner and the team at A Total Disruption published an article in the Huffington Post about our own disruptive path at UberConference in a high-level interview with CEO Craig Walker. As Ondi cites in the article, “It’s time we hop forward a few decades forward and do business better by embracing the disruptive innovation in this arena.”

We only get one opportunity to make the world a better place in one small way. Our hope this year is that UberConference continues to facilitate better team conversations and forge stronger bonds in your own area. Every minute spent speaking together as colleagues is valuable. Especially as the modern workplace scatters us across the globe, we hope we’re able to help you connect with your team more effectively. Happy New Year!
