Meeting Setup: (Rating: 10/10)

The processes for setting up your meeting is a simple process of inputting your information, uploading any documents you need, and sending out invites without any downloads needed. The invite process is easy with its integration with your Google Plus or LinkedIn profiles. You also have the option to upload your own CSV file with emails or individual emails anytime throughout the meeting.

Features: (Rating: 8/10)

UberConference has many features which allow for a seamless meeting. You have custom call in numbers and PINs which are yours forever (but you can choose whether or not the PINs are used), plus you have the option to have toll-free numbers. Although you are provided with many features which make for a great meeting such as screen sharing, UberConference does not have a webcam video option so you are unable to view the host or participants in real time.

Video: (Rating: 0/10)

UberConference does not offer the host or participants an option to connect their webcam for a live, real time video feed.

Audio: (Rating: 10/10)

Whether the host or participants are speaking through their phone or computer the audio is excellent. The computer mic does seems to give it a slightly more clear sound as the phone seems slightly distant. By turning up the volume, the person speaking on the phone was crystal clear.

Security: (Rating: 9/10)

UberConference lost a point here is because they state their security is better over the computer than it is over the mobile phone. However, each participant has to be invited by the host and they need to call in on a specific number with an identifiable PIN number. Another great security feature that UberConference includes is that they encrypt all the media as well as client information that is entered into the system.

Ease of Use: (Rating: 10/10)

The navigation and interface is simple. You are given a dashboard where you are able to start or schedule a conference. Once you have made your choice you can easily invite participants by using an integrated contact list or creating your own. UberConference also has the ability to have the conference call the host or participants so that a meeting is never missed.

Help & Support: (Rating: 10/10)

There is a comprehensive list of FAQ’s, videos, and downloadable guides to help you learn and use UberConference. Their support team can also be contacted through email, chat, and telephone.

What We Like about UberConference

UberConference Calls You: A very unique feature is that UberConference will call all participants, including the host, at the time of the meeting. You will never have to worry about dialing in or forgetting a meeting again. You and your guests still have the option to dial-in the traditional way.

Visual Calls: Even though UberConference does not support webcam usage, you can still know who is on the call. Each participant is able to link their social networks when they join the call. Their image will be on the meeting dashboard and each participant can click on the image to view more information from their social media profiles.

Lots of Integrations: Each participant can link to their Google Plus, LinkedIn, or Twitter social network profiles. A host also has the ability to integrate their Google contacts, LinkedIn contacts, Google Hangouts, Outlook, iCal, Google Calendar, Google Drive, Google Docs, Evernote, Chrome, and Cirrus insight to their accounts.

Custom Meeting URLs, Call-in numbers, and PINs: Your URL, Call-in number, and PIN are each unique to your profile. Callers can use the same numbers each time they join a call with you. You also have the option to add unique toll free numbers to your account.

iPhone and Android Support: UberConference allows all callers to view the screen sharing and download documents using their mobile apps.

Simple Schedule and Invites: Easily schedule your meetings and invite guests using one of the many calendar and contact integrations.

Browser Based: There is not any software that attendees or hosts need to download before they join the call. There are a few optional downloads and add-ons that help enhance meetings, but each person will enjoy HD audio along with a quality meeting by simply using their browser.

Host Controls the Call: The host has the ability to mute any caller on the line using the call dashboard. The host is also able to invite anyone needed during the meeting and share any documents that are needed throughout the meeting. As the host you can also allow any participant to become the presenter and share their screen.

Affordable Pricing: UberConference uses a pricing system that can fit into anyone’s budget. Starting at just $10 per month you can enjoy all the features UberConference offers to ensure a smooth meeting. Even their Business plan allows you to continue paying only $10 per month for each additional organizer that you add to the team.


What We Don’t Like about UberConference

No Webcam: UberConference does not support the use of webcam video. However, you can create a video conference if you use the Hangouts integration. Unfortunately you are only allowed to have 15 callers using this method and Hangouts Live does not currently have an integration.

No Customizable Layout Options: The meeting dashboard is the same for all users. You do not have an option to personalize it for your business or company. However, you do have plenty of options to personalize your profile using the social network integrations.

Need Chrome to Share Screen: Anyone who plans on presenting during the meeting by sharing their screen does need to use Chrome. If you are not presenting then you can view the shared screen on Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Opera. However, UberConference does recommend that the best viewing experience is on Google Chrome.

Need UberConference Account to Share Documents: Those who wish to share documents throughout the meeting must have an account. This may slow down the meeting process if one has to go back to the sign up process to create an account. However, UberConference does try to make it easier by sending the participant directly to account setup once they click on the “share file” link.

Echo Cancellation Times out: If you have not chosen to use a headset during the meeting, you and your participants may begin to hear an echo in Chrome even if you have already fixed the settings on the echo cancellation. You have to reset your settings after several minutes. However, you can avoid this by using a headset.


Final Thoughts

UberConference provides a one of a kind visual interface which creates an easy to use browser based web conferencing system that is simple and easy to use. Using its many integrations, it is most likely one of the most inexpensive conferencing systems available today which will scale with your business growth.
