We are excited about ÜberConference being in the Evernote DevCup competition for the best products that integrate with the Evernote API. DevCup brings together innovative ideas from all over the world and has over a hundred companies vying for more than $100,000 in prizes.

The ÜberConference Evernote integration was one of the first new features we wanted to add after our launch, and it lets you automatically save conference call summaries in the context of all your Evernote notes. Each note has summary information, who was on the call, and even a few fun features like who talked the most and least. Additionally, it will keep a record of any recordings or chat messages during the call.

Check out our new video on the Evernote integration.

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!

UberConference and Enplug: using visual displays to connect in a new way.

Enplug digital signage is one of the youngest and fastest growing startups in Silicon Beach. They were founded in 2012 and are currently in over 100 cities with around 35 employees. They are in over 400 venues with clients including Audi, Porsche, Marriott, Supperclub, WeWork and Amoeba music.

Enplug’s Plug and Play mini device turns any TV or digital display into an interactive and real-time marketing tool for businesses. After plugging the device into a TV, businesses choose from a wide-array of apps to display including live social media walls, live weather, live news and more.

Their most popular app is the Live Social Wall, which allows businesses to display a real-time feed of any hashtag or username from Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Foursquare, and Yelp.

Businesses can control their Enplug displays from the ‘Enplug Control’ app, available on any smartphone, tablet, or desktop.

Their company, with employees all over the world traveling to onboard new systems, is constantly on the go. They needed a solution that would help them maintain efficiency and was in tune with their focus on design.

“One of the coolest things we do is turn our Enplug displays around the office — which we have about 30 of — into UberConference displays for sales, marketing, engineering, and operations meetings,” said Ryan Gushue, Director of Marketing at Enplug. “We attach a camera to them so people calling in can feel like they are here, in the meeting. With Enplug displays on every major continent, and only 35 employees, the ability to effectively communicate regardless of distance is essential for our growth.”

Big things are happening at UberConference! We’ve just opened an office in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina, and we’re growing quickly.

The office is located two blocks from the Raleigh State Capital in the historic Briggs Hardware Building, and is led by Raleigh GM and UberConference Head of Telephony, TR Missner.

We expect to add up to 20 more North Carolina members to our team over the next few months-including operations, sales and customer service representatives.

“Raleigh is a thriving, dynamic market with an extraordinary talent pool,” said T.R. “Establishment of our office in Raleigh makes it possible for us to provide exceptional customer service with extended hours, and expand brand awareness and product knowledge through East Coast sales channels.”

He added, “It’s another step in our strategy to provide the best conference calling service in the world.”

(INT. BEVERLY HILLS LAW OFFICE CONFERENCE ROOM – DAY)

An ATTORNEY sits alone in an immense conference room of a law office in front of computer. On the screen is an UberConference call and the faces of FOUR PEOPLE on the screen: GARY, BECKY, VERNON, and ANTOINE.

ATTORNEY

Okay, everyone, welcome to the official sale of the Los Angeles Clippers basketball club. As you will recall, this is an open auction with no minimum.

BECKY

Excuse me?

ATTORNEY

Yes, Becky?

BECKY

“Basketball club?” What is that about?

ATTORNEY

Our firm has been hired to conduct an auction of the Los Angeles Clippers basketball club. What is your question?

BECKY

Oh. I see. Because I thought this was for a pair of hedge clippers. I saw this ad on Craigslist and they said I should call this number. Did I dial the wrong number?

ATTORNEY

No. You dialed correctly. This is the number we had in the Craigslist ad. Would you like participate in the auction?

BECKY

Well, I was really just looking for something to trim my hedges…

ATTORNEY

I’d be willing to throw in a nice set of hedge clippers myself if you win the bidding.

BECKY

But I don’t know if I really want a basketball team…

VERNON

(interrupting)

Can we get this started? I have to leave for work pretty soon.

Attorney clicks on Vernon’s image on the UberConference screen and goes to his Facebook page. We see a burly and jovial-looking guy in a security guard uniform.

ATTORNEY

We’ll start right now, Vernon. How’s the warehouse you’ve been guarding?

VERNON

Fine. So, uh, listen, here’s my bid. I happen to have a pallet of video games I’m willing to trade for the Clippers.

We HEAR loud movie sounds on the call.

VERNON

What is that?!

ATTORNEY

It’s coming from Gary.  Gary?

GARY

Yeah.

ATTORNEY

What is that noise?

GARY

I’m watching “Space Jam.”

ATTORNEY

Can you turn it off, please?

GARY

No, this is the good part.

VERNON

There is no good part in “Space Jam.”

ATTORNEY

Gary, I’m going to mute you for now.

Attorney mutes Gary on the conference call.

ATTORNEY

So, Vernon, you are offering a pallet of video games in exchange for the Los Angeles Clippers.

VERNON

Yup.  Classics from the 1990s.  In the original packaging.

ATTORNEY

Any estimate on the value?

VERNON

Fifty.  Maybe sixty bucks.  Solid.

ATTORNEY

Okay, let’s see what Gary has to offer.

Attorney unmutes Gary and the movie is blasting away. He quickly mutes Gary again.

ATTORNEY

Let’s get back to Gary. Antoine, what are you offering?

ANTOINE

A deadly ten foot jump shot. Deadly.

ATTORNEY

Okay.  Ummm.  Why would we want that?

ANTOINE

Well, uh, who doesn’t want a guy with a deadly accurate ten-foot jump shot?

ATTORNEY

You want to play for the Clippers?

ANTOINE

Of course.  I’ve been working out for the past three weeks.  I broke a guy’s ankle the other day doing a crossover.

ATTORNEY

You did?

ANTOINE

Well, I broke his ankle after I tried to do a crossover and tripped and fell on his ankle. But you get the point.

ATTORNEY

The thing of it is, Antoine, the Clippers don’t really have a basketball team anymore.  The owner refused to sell so the league shut the club down.

ANTOINE

Oh.  I guess I missed that.  Well, then I’m gonna pass.

ATTORNEY

Fair enough.  Let me check on Gary again.

He unmutes Gary and the movie is still blasting away.

GARY

(to himself)

Marvin the Martian.

Attorney hangs up on Gary.

VERNON

That pallet of video games is starting look pretty good right now, isn’t it?

(Attorney sighs.)

ATTORNEY

Do you have any copies of Super Mario World?

VERNON

One hundred and sixty three copies.  Never been used.

ATTORNEY

Sold!
