SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Firespotter Labs today announced the availability of UberConference international access numbers in over 40 countries across Europe, Asia and South America. Participants in UberConference calls can use these in-country local numbers to avoid expensive international calling rates when calling a US conference number. Additional country codes will be added in February.
"Our goal is to make UberConference the best conference calling service in the world," said Craig Walker, CEO and co-founder of Firespotter Labs. "With international access numbers, we are solving a key pain point for the increasing number of companies that have employees or business partners in other countries who need to join a conference call."
This new international access number feature is available immediately and is included automatically at no extra charge for all UberConference Pro and Business accounts. UberConference Free accounts can upgrade to Pro for just $10 a month to get a local number and several other premium features such as larger conference sizes, recurring conferences, outbound dialing, and more, as well as document and note sharing through Box and Evernote.
Previously, UberConference added WebRTC to enable calling into conferences over the Internet from anywhere in the world using the Google Chrome browser.
