UberConference Integrates with Box and Evernote to Provide File and Note Sharing in Calls

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Firespotter Labs today announced the availability of document and file sharing in UberConference through its integrations with Box and Evernote. By linking Box and Evernote accounts to UberConference, anyone on a teleconference can share multiple files and notes and easily switch between views by clicking on the different thumbnails.

(Photo: Each participant's view is independent, so it provides flexibility for different people to view different content at the same time. The sharer has additional controls allowing them to refresh and delete shared items as well. At the end of the call, links to the notes and files are included in the call summaries for easy reference, and access to those documents takes place on Evernote and Box. See how it works in this video.

"UberConference integration with Box and Evernote makes conference calls much more productive while delivering an elegant and easy-to-use experience," said Craig Walker, CEO and co-founder of Firespotter Labs. "We are committed to building great product experiences and are thrilled to work with two such industry-leading companies who share our passion for creating amazing products." Box makes it incredibly easy to preview and share hundreds of files and business documents including, Word, Excel, Powerpoint, pdf's, psd's, audio and image files, right in the browser through the integration. The embedded Box widget has a number of smart control features built in, including paging through documents, rotating and resizing images, and switching in and out of full screen view.

"Box's open platform and v2 API make it possible for our customers and partners to quickly and seamlessly integrate our service into their own applications," said Chris Yeh, VP of Platform at Box. "UberConference has built a visual phone conferencing service with a suite of powerful features including the ability to easily display and share business content directly from your Box account. We're excited to work with innovative companies like UberConference to drive businesses' productivity and make the conference calling experience more collaborative." With the new release of Evernote Business, it's even easier to collaborate on both personal and business notes, and UberConference is one of the first companies to develop an integration with this new business note functionality. UberConference also utilizes Evernote's Related Note functionality to automatically find notes that might be relevant to the call.

"By adding seamless note sharing, UberConference has made it dead simple to quickly exchange ideas and information during a collaborative call," said Seth Hitchings, VP of Platform Strategy at Evernote. "Combined with the integrated Evernote Related Notes feature, UberConference is a great solution for Evernote Business users looking for the smartest ways to work."
