Great Looking Interface, Simple To Use

Right now I am a student, and everything is being done remotely. Of course normally there would be a study room and much more face to face interaction. Sococo helps reduce the barriers inherent in a virtual environment and brings people a little closer together. I think it has been a great tool!

Pros

The thing I like most about Sococo is that so long as your microphone is one you can just talk to the people who are "in the room" with you just as if they were actually there. You can also turn on the video chat feature and share screens with people in your room. Very handy and makes you feel a little closer than you might otherwise.

Cons

It might be nice if Sococo confirmed that you wanted to leave a room before actually leaving. I was trying to toggle between screens so I could share the appropriate one with people in my group. Somehow during my toggling I ended up in another room and started talking over the people that were already there meeting! It has only happened once, but it was a little embarrassing. A way to avoid that might be nice!

Produto Inovador

No geral foi boa, me abriu a mente para uma gestão a distância, sinceramente teria ficado com o software implementado (toda a empresa passou a usar, com a minha dica) se fosse mais barato, na epoca queriam cobrar em dolares e no brasil isso é uma fortuna!

Pros

Os recursos visuais (salas, avatares) foram o que me motivaram a implantar na empresa a utilização do software

Cons

Não gostei do chat, achei que falta recursos, como mensagens de áudio, envio de arquivos grandes, etc...

Reasons for Choosing Sococo

Por conta da simulação de salas (visual).

Reasons for Switching to Sococo

O skype é mal otimizado e sobrecarrega o computador (o meu pelo menos) o que me irrita demais, nossa. Uso esse software só em ultimo caso.

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.

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.

Good enough

Pros

-Perfect for small remote business -Has a decent voice chat -Can integrate flawlessly with slack -Customization of the workspace with different layouts depending on business size -Invite links for meetings with external people are handy -you can close your virtual ofice door if you need to concentrate and not being disturbed -There is a somewhat nice user customization by color and nicknames. -Dev team keeps patching and improving stuff

Cons

-There is no "personal space" customization -Screensharing has a lot of lag -Voice chat and media sharing usually has issues -There are always weird bugs, like people showing in several rooms at the same time or going through walls -Lag in voice calls can happen often.
