UberConference was proud to be a host for the second annual OpenCo festival in San Francisco.  OpenCo, an innovation themed open house hosted in four major cities, allows community members to get a peek into how local companies are breaking new ground.  Craig got a great reception as he shared how our corporate culture fosters creativity.

“OpenCo is a great opportunity to showcase how culture, collaboration and hard work play together in building a successful, thriving environment of creative thought and innovation,” said Craig Walker.

Things are really rolling here at UberConference. And now it seems we’ve made it to the finals for the Cloud Awards!

In case you didn’t know, the Cloud Awards identify and celebrate excellence in the field of cloud computing, with categories including Best Cloud Infrastructure, Data Innovation of the Year, Developer of the Year, Most Promising Startup (that’s what we’re up for), Web Services Excellence and Best Software as a Service.

Cloud Awards organizer Larry Johnson has said, “The standard of entries this year was truly incredible – Efficiency, agility and an ability to leverage all of the positive attributes of cloud technologies are what set the organizations in this shortlist apart from any other.”

UberConference is at the forefront of key trends that are changing the way people communicate in business. In searching for solutions that are simple, flexible, and cost effective, businesses are moving their telephony services to the cloud as supporting technologies evolve and solutions become more stable.

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.

It was great being at ITEXPO last week. We met a lot of interesting people at the event and had a great time!

ÜberConference was proud to be a sponsor of StartUpCamp7, a great event for early-stage communications companies to showcase cutting-edge technologies and business ideas. Our CEO, Craig Walker, was one of the judges. He was also part of the panel, The Future of Service Providers – Dumb Pipes or Global Leaders. Here are some pics from the event.

If you were at the event you would have also seen that ÜberConference was sponsoring the front and back of the badges at the event. For those who weren’t there, here is how it looked:
