Good virtual office app

In general you can create a good working environment, even if your colleagues are far away, you can go and knock on the door of your colleagues' office, or invite them to the lobby and have a meeting.

Pros

This app allows you to interact with colleagues in real time, via chat or video call. It also gives you the option to invite customers for an online meeting.

Cons

The mobile app does not show you the workspace as the desktop app, but as a list of workspaces. It tends to slow down during a voice call or when doing screen sharing.

Experience the excitement of an office enviroment...Virtually!

The most close experience to actually be on an office with someone in real time.

Pros

Most of the people use phone calls or just chats for home office or long distance work communication. But Sococo is the next level, you practically feel that you are in an office or meeting room, side to side with the people you need to do business. You can do calls pretty quickly, from 2 to like 50 people, or send messages to all of them. You can even screenshare or share your camera, just with one click, and in less than a second. I have been using this software from around 2 years, and I wouldn't change it for anything else.

Cons

Nothing, it is pretty useful software. And if you manage to find something that is not working right, you can totally send some messages or even talk to managers in real time.

Pricing plan change shutdown our company's collaboration.

Pros

The virtual office layout is useful to see who is meeting with whom. This is much better than just seeing that someone is online, like Hangouts, or online and on a call, like slack. The ability to see which people are meeting is very effective. Additionally, it's easy to hop into and out of a meeting.

Cons

Programatically: We've been with Sococo for years and they keep changing the pricing. Now there is a limit to the number of voice minutes. When we ran out of minutes we were shut down and when I had my manager try to buy more minutes, they're help desk was so backed up we couldn't buy additional minutes. Bottomline: It's hard to rely on Sococo. Technically: Their tech has changed over the years. For a couple years things were getting only worse. When the application went browser based it had lots of bugs. Things are better now, but the screen sharing is still not great.

Reasons for Choosing Sococo

The office layout and the ability to see people's availability.

Perfect for remote jobs

As I work on a remote position, this is the software we use for communication on the company, so this allow us to keep control on everyone, so we can work together or if we need to have a meeting, this is where we do it.

Pros

Is pretty straightforward to use, so you don't need to worry for anything, only to login. The "virtual office" is perfect to know when your team is online and is the best for working together, as you only "knock" on the door of your team mate, and enter to their place, and you can start sharing screen, talking and/or chatting.

Cons

It has lots of bugs from time to time, normally they are not critical, but some times they affect the "useful" features like speaking/hearing, connection, etc.
