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!

Give an extra professional touch to your conference calls with a toll free number. Toll free makes it easy for people to dial in from any phone without worrying about long distance charges. With ÜberConference toll free conferencing you get unlimited toll free calls and all the ÜberConference Pro and regular features for just $20 a month.

Traditional toll free conference call providers charge by the minute for each leg of the conference call, and often include additional fees and even hidden charges.  These costs can add up and can vary widely from month to month depending on how many calls you make and the number of people in your calls.  Usage rules can even be complicated and misleading. We hate these types of practices and think people deserve better. So for just $20 a month you can call as much as you like and skip all the guesswork of what you might be charged.  It’s simple to understand and manage, and for that rate you are likely to save a lot of money as well.

ÜberConference toll free conference numbers come with an ÜberConference Pro subscription, which offers increased conference size up to forty participants, the ability to call out to join people into conference calls, recurring conferences, and custom hold music. Also included are all the core award-winning ÜberConference features. Know who is on the call and who is talking with the rich visual conferencing interface with social contact integration, and run calls smoothly with robust call management features like mute, earmuff, group chat, and call recording.

To get your toll free number, select the toll free number option when you upgrade your free account to ÜberConference Pro.  If you are already a Pro user, you can click on the Get More page in your account and the toll free number option to upgrade your account.  This will allow you to switch your local dial in number with a toll free number, and will change your monthly bill from $10 a month to $20 a month.

UberCast with UberConference’s own Creative Director, Alex Cornell

How does one overcome creative block? Our Creative Director and cofounder here at UberConference, Alex Cornell went and asked the most creative and inspiring people he knew and wrote a book about it called Breakthrough!: Proven Strategies to Overcome Creative Block and Spark Your Imagination.

On top of being a new author, this Duke grad is also a musician, aridiculously talented videographer, maker of the Plancast penguin, and many other beautiful things on the web. Alex is a creative force! He’s also responsible for pretty much everything you see out of UberConference from our website design, logo, recently launched iPhone and Android apps and too many other things to list here. All from his creative mind! So he definitely knows a bit about creativity and block and how to overcome it. Here are a few tips he’s pocketed along the way:

1. Working in a fast-paced environment helps you eliminate unnecessary distractions or hurdles. We’re on fire over here at UberConference and this dude does quality work fast!

2. Make the stakes high. Alex recommends going somewhere, getting an expensive hotel and holing up for the weekend to just push through and do the work. You’ll be spending some money so you’re going to make it count.

3. If you find yourself stuck, let it go and come back to it later. Sometimes hurdles resolve themselves after a while.

4. Take a break. Walk around and clear your mind. It’s important to just step back a bit when needed.

5. Putting random sentences together in a book can help you come up with creative visualizations for campaigns or writing. Very effective at reworking the mind (there’s an example of how one does this exactly in the podcast).

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.”
