As avid users of Google Apps, we at ÜberConference are proud to be silver sponsors of gSocial 2.0, the largest independent event for resellers and independent software vendors that offer Google Apps solutions for business and enterprise customers. The event is this November 12-13 in Sunnyvale, CA, and offers a number of sessions and opportunities for sharing best practices and networking with others in the Google Apps channel partner community.   If you are at the event, we’d love to meet you. ÜberConference will be there both days, and will also have some round table sessions for demos and general discussions from 3:15 – 4:15 on the second day.

ÜberConference is conference calling done right. We make it easy to join phone conferences without having to enter a PIN,  see who is in the call and who is speaking, and run calls smoothly with powerful call management features.  Led by Craig Walker, the founder of GrandCentral and Google Voice, the team includes other past members of the Google Voice team, and has deep experience in developing innovative telephony features at scale.  Winner of TechCrunch Disrupt NY 2012, ÜberConference has received rave reviews in the press for its innovative approach to conference calls.  The company is backed by top-tier investors, Andreessen Horowitz and Google Ventures, and has raised $18 million.

Our ÜberConference Google Apps integration launched on October 24, and is currently first among the Top New Apps in the Google Apps Marketplace.  The app makes it easy for anyone in a Google Apps domain to sign up and login to ÜberConference from the Google Apps “More” menu in the title bar. It also automatically syncs Google contacts with ÜberConference contacts when users sign up, so all the social caller ID and PIN-less dial in features of ÜberConference are ready to go.

With the launch of ÜberConference Business this past week, setting up and managing conference calls across a business is even easier.  An UberConference Business account lets you sign up multiple accounts at once and assign accounts to users by sending out email invites or distributing a unique link.  Its simple to add and remove users, just like you’d do with Gmail and Google Apps, and management of billing and accounts is all in one place.

Back in October, Firespotter Labs became Switch Communications, and we launched our second voice product, Switch—the cloud-based phone system for Google Apps users.

With a team deeply-rooted in telecommunications (our CEO Craig Walker founded both Google Voice and Yahoo! Voice), we launched Switch Communications to get back to what we love doing: building scalable voice products for the the modern worker.

Starting today, we’re moving our UberConference content over to the Switch Communications blog. Don’t worry, UberConference isn’t going anywhere, we just think it makes sense to talk about Switch and UberConference together as two amazing unified communications products that help us better connect when and where we work best.

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.
