For anything internal, we use Google Hangouts and for anything client-facing it's UberConference. The reason is that UberConference is the least sucky tool because it doesn’t involve installation of a third party app. They made calls really easy, “click & play”. Anything like Zoom or don’t get me started on Skype for Business, anything like that is impossible, especially for enterprise clients because you have to work around their internal protocols and network policies. UberConference works 80% of the time and for the remaining 20 we improvise, but it’s still the best thing we can come up. We’ve looked through every conferencing tool out there and it's okay, but definitely not the best. We use it because it’s easy and best at bypassing network policies and restrictions, and for the most part works well.

Founder & CEO - SquarePeg
UberConference is something we found works for the majority of people because they can also call in if they can’t join the meeting over a computer.

Co-founder & CEO - Opternative
I love UberConference for conference calls. You have to pay for it, but there’s no PIN to enter, the wait music is hysterical and it’s just great to use.
CEO & Co-founder - Plum Print
UberConference calling is just awesome, and it’s free to use! Very professional. Great brand and super-cool people.

We use UberConference for all of our phone call needs. We have a profound love of UberConference, and we will probably use Switch at some point when we need real phones, but it’s too expensive right now. We’re just waiting for the price to come down, or for them to offer a combined plan.

At this point, UberConference is only used by a few of our outliners for their calls. It’s a good backup plan for when there’s an issue with Skype. We had originally been using only UberConference for calls, but there were a few times it got glitchy, and we decided to stick with Skype for calls. But the UI and experience of UberConference are amazing. When you’re finished with a Skype call, an MP3 of the call is automatically downloaded onto your desktop. With UberConference, you get an email with a link to download the file. Editors prefer to have the files autosaved on their desktops, while outliners want to download the file on their own, so we give everyone the choice to use whichever platform suits their needs better.

One reason I like UberConference is because they let you select your preferred hold music, which is a lot better than other conference dial-ins that only play elevator music!

For screensharing and video conferencing, we use GotoMeeting, which is very reliable, but not cost-effective for a small team--it’s $50 per month. We also use UberConference--it’s a free service that allows for voice or video conference and recording.
Director of Operations - Inxent, Inc.
We use UberConference because it is just free and easy - I have a guy in Canada, so some of the other options were really expensive.

4%Stacklist Startups Are Using UberConference
UberConference is a conference call alternative that dedicates itself to giving you control over your meetings and eliminating annoyances like PIN numbers and background noise. Some of its features include screen-sharing, a speaker indicator and the ability to add guests partway through the call. Advanced features even eliminate the need for organizing and scheduling the call--UberConference will call you when it’s time for your meeting. Anyone who questions UberConference’s dedication to smooth conference calling should search for the song, “I’m on Hold,” written and performed by UberConference’s founder in the spirit of removing everything painful about conference calls.
Due to the the universal nature of conference calls, UberConference is useful to startups of every size and stage, though the fact that it’s low-cost certainly appeals to earlier-stage companies.
UberConference offers three pricing plans. The free plan includes all the central features, such as unlimited conferences, call recording and up to 10 callers at once. The Pro plan, at $10/month, is intended for just one user, and provides the ability to add guests mid-call, eliminates the need for PIN numbers and enables up to 100 callers for a single user. Very similar to the Pro plan, the Business plan allows multiple users ($10/user/month), and comprises team management features, enabling you to appoint an administrator to manage user permissions.
