Since we are showcasing our product at LegalTech in New York this week (Booth #2507), we decided to put together a list of our top legal features.

Teleconferencing is one of the single most important aspects of your profession. When we were designing and building the UberConference teleconferencing system, we included a series of features that are specifically useful and valuable for attorneys. These features address issues that often uniquely apply to legal teleconferences.

1. You know who is on the call.
UberConference allows you to see who, exactly, is on this call. We’re not a video conferencing system, but each participant is identified on the screen while the call is going on. These are private, important issues you’re dealing with. You need to know who is on the call, and whether they belong there. All too often confidential calls are interrupted by an audible ‘beep’ followed by, “Who’s there?” only to be met with silence. UberConference provides full transparency and ensures every caller on the line is allowed to listen and participate.

2. You know exactly how long the call lasted.
You’ve set up a 30-minute teleconference on your calendar for a Monday. Guess what? It ended up lasting three hours. That’s fine. Fair enough. It needed to go that long. With UberConference call tracking, you have a record of how long the call actually lasted no matter which phone you used to dial into the call. Lots of firms have ways to track hours on conference calls, but those solutions are limited to your desk phone or require you to enter a useless PIN number for each call. Only UberConference does this automatically every time. That information is invaluable, especially if the client’s calendar only shows a 30-minute call on their schedule from that day. UberConference provides the proof you need to justify your billing, no questions asked.

3. You can “lock” the call.
Once you’ve started an UberConference, we show you every person who has dialed into your call. There is never the possibility of somebody lurking on the line and just listening to your privileged conversion. With UberConference, we let you lock in (and more importantly — lock out) participants. This locking feature keeps callers from slipping into a call who do not belong there. Once you have the right people on the call, just hit the lock icon (or press ** from your phone) and nobody else can join your conversation.

UberConference is now available directly from the Google Apps Admin console which is part of the improvements that were included with the Google Apps Marketplace launch today.

In the updated Google Apps Marketplace experience, Google Apps admins can now find and install third-party apps right from their Google Apps Admin console without a separate authentication process.  They can also easily manage permissions from the console.

Need someone to schedule conference calls on your behalf? Until now this was only possible by sharing your password with someone. We know that’s not something most people want to do. So we changed that.
Starting today, UberConference Pro users can delegate their account by creating an administrator password. This allows someone else to schedule and edit calls on your behalf.

To create an administrator password, just login to your account and go to Settings>Password then click on “Invite an administrator”.  Your chosen admin will get an email prompting them to create a password to access your account.  They will still login with your email address but have their own password.

Once created, your admin will be able to do most anything you can with your account, other than change your password.  You can revoke these admin privileges at any time.
