UberConference is designed to be both powerful and easy to use. A new visual dashboard solves the most common problems faced in teleconferencing such as making it easy to join, knowing who's on the call and knowing who's speaking. The redesigned interface simplifies conference calls and totally eliminates PIN numbers for all UberConference Pro accounts, regardless of how the caller joins the conference.  Advanced features like call recording or muting a participant are as simple as the click of a button; no more cryptic *4 or #5 codes required to mute or manage the call.

"Everybody hates entering a PIN to join a conference call.  Whether you're driving, in a hurry, or just can't enter a 9 digit code accurately, the PIN number is a relic of the past and should be done away with forever," said Craig Walker, CEO and co-founder of UberConference. "The new design keeps our customers truly hands free if they're on the road and more productive in the office."
