It’s been a busy time at Firespotter since we started the company and raised our Series A financing from Google Ventures in April 2011. First we launched Nosh, the consumer food app that answers the question “What’s good here?” at any restaurant. We then launched NoshList, an iPad app for restaurants that texts diners when their tables are ready (and we’re seating our 2 millionth diner this month…not bad since it launched just 5 months ago). We also built Jotly, the iPhone and Android app that lets you rate anything. Our latest product, ÜberConference is our first product in the voice communications space. We launched ÜberConference at TechCrunch Disrupt in May 2012 and were overjoyed at winningStartup Battlefield.

As we look back on the past 15 months, we’re very happy with all that’s been done. We are also excitedly looking forward to our increased focus on more and more telephony projects.

With that said, we’re even more excited about the recent closing of ourSeries B financing round, led by the great team at Andreessen Horowitz. Blake Krikorian joins Wesley Chan and me on the Board of Firespotter and we’re thrilled to have Blake with us. This round gives us the firepower to hire quickly and go full bore on all the exciting opportunities in the evolving communications space.

As the proliferation of tablets and mobile devices continues to change the nature of communications, we want to be there leading the charge for innovation. People are still sick of being taken advantage of by their communications providers with their hidden fees, difficult interfaces and clunky solutions. We will always strive to be the “good guys” of communications by being fair, innovative, and relentless in our pursuit of creating the best communications products in the world.

If you are looking to join a great team that is disrupting a huge space, we’d love to talk to you. Check out our jobs page on ÜberConference.com.

At UberConference, we’re constantly looking for ways to integrate with the way you work. One of our most popular requests has been to provide a tool for our customers who use Microsoft Office for their primary work communication.

Our team is pleased to announce the brand new Add-In for Outlook. Adding to our existing suite of integrations, now Microsoft Outlook users are able to organize, schedule and create calls from within the Outlook application.

“UberConference for Outlook Add-In has made organizing meetings a breeze with the new one click to add option. This simple frictionless user experience makes a huge difference when scheduling multiple conference calls in a week,” says Ken Snyder, Practice Lead-Collaboration at CDW. “It just works — and that makes all the difference.”

Simply download the Outlook plugin, login to UberConference from within Outlook, and easily set up your conferences.  Structure and organize your calls from the calendar, a new email, or the UberConference client.

This integration works with Outlook for Windows 7+, 2013, or 2010.
