"My avatar in Sococo"

What do you like best?

Avatars system is a cool feature. Thanks to the Sococo program, our company can remotely distribute tasks between employees. It is also easy to contact an employee wherever he is. I can easily invite a user to the team, or to my project. The choice of visual layouts is large enough, you can easily pick up something that suits you.

What do you dislike?

The disadvantages are minor but still exist. Sometimes it's problems with video and there are little problems with sound.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You will see how easy it is to co-operate in a group, even at a distance.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Many employees of our company work remotely, it is difficult for them feel like they are part of a team, and it becomes possible with the Sococo. In addition, employees can make sure that the whole team is putting the maximum of forces on the overall project.

What Team Collaboration solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Sococo Boosts Collaboration for Distributed Teams"

What do you like best?

Sococo helped our distributed team become increasingly transparent with each other. I love walking in on conversations I would have missed if we were using another tool that separates your experiences in to chat-like rooms. Instead, our team works together in our own room, having conversations as if we were together in person. Many a time have I dropped in on a conversation where I had the exact information other teammates needed, but they didn't know to ask.

What do you dislike?

Some people have a hard time with the audio options, this reduced adoption by others in my company.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is great for getting distributed teams to have better conversations outside of email and text formats, however it will not help with task management.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A more personal experience with our distributed team members. We've been able to connect personally as a team and become a strong team because of Sococo. It's as close to being in person as you can get.

"Making distributed work possible "

What do you like best?

Sococo makes it so easy to jump in and out offices with coworkers, start conversations, catch up and connect with team mates! It makes working together easy, sharing even easier and allows our distributed team of 6 to successfully accomplish our work- every single day.

What do you dislike?

The desktop version can be buggy if there are too many people in a meeting and you are sharing screens, this can cause Sococo to freeze - requiring a restart. It does not happen enough to complain about though.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are a distributed Agile marketing team of 6, we run our team using scrum and value face to face communication and collaboration. Without Sococo none of this interaction would be possible. Working on creative, content and integrated campaigns without the input of each team member would limit our opportunities for success - Sococo helps us achieve our goals.

"Good idea with some functionality issues"

What do you like best?

I enjoy being able to see when my fellow co-workers are "in office." This is something really hard to achieve in a remote environment and the tool can only work as well as the person on the other end using it. However, it does give a good sense of when people are reachable, or unavailable.

What do you dislike?

I didn't really like the slack integration - I just felt like it wasn't necessary. Maybe that was just something my company decided on, but at in the way that my team uses it, it was just another thing to have to download. I also have pretty routine mic and sound issues. It seems like the platform uses too much bandwidth.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a nice resource to connect a remote team. I wish that the company I freelance with used it also. It makes it easier to see if people are actively engaged in work. Whereas right now, we only see when people are in Slack, which I think can be a bit misleading.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I like being able to quickly communicate and connect with colleagues. Fortunately, most things that I work on are not too time sensitive, but for the rare occasion that quickness counts - it's invaluable to see which colleagues I can connect with quickly to get the answers that I need as fast as possible.

"Outstanding Collaborative Tool"

What do you like best?

Our team loves the ease of connecting and seeing who is available to work with instantly. The service is really stable from screen share to audio channels

What do you dislike?

We've used Sococo for awhile, in the past we had some issues with connectivity, but they've resolved it. Adding others to the network was also a problem on the old desktop version, but they fixed that as well going with a web based solution. Honestly, no complaints.

Recommendations to others considering the product

We aren't sure about very large scale implementations, but for a user base of 10-25 it has worked very well for us.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Collaboration and more collaboration. Our team needs to make a million decisions a day on in depth software designs for our clients. Our developers live in a war room it feels like for part of the week before splitting off to work in isolation with sporadic contact. Our flowing and changing styles of communications are all accommodated for using this tool.

"Very interesting experience since it emulates a real office location and coreography"

What do you like best?

The real world simulation since its look and feel is exactly as a real office. People at different locations can work as a real team real time as they were at the same physical office. This is really great and unique.

What do you dislike?

It is still missing a strong API platform integration. I believe that is in the roadmap and it will be built in a very short time. Sococo makes sense a lot if integrated with a workflow engine as it is with Slack and Skype for business today. Maybe

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Easy to communicate with peers , co-workers and clients Easy to collaborate. We solved the communication issue and specially when people are in different locations.

"Amazing!"

What do you like best?

Sococo gives you a more real feeling of a virtual office, the way you can close doors and avoid getting unwanted people on your meetings is really good.

What do you dislike?

The chats bug a little bit, also your lose your old chat messages if you change between rooms.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have issues with your employees to talk to each other, sococo is a great tool.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

All of my company co workers work from their home, this brings a more real sense of office to use and help us work together.

"The virtual equivalent of cube mates"

What do you like best?

I love the fact that I can hear other people's conversations without having been formally invited into a meeting, just like you would in a real office. There have been numerous times we have caught someone else's conversation and heard information that saved us from doubling work.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes technical issues e.g. mics don't work.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Being able to work across the country from home with the rest of my team. We're a very collaborative team and I can't image being able to work as closely together as we do without this tool.

"Innovative Virtual Office Tool Working Wonders"

What do you like best?

It's a fantastic concept realized in both a professional and cute way. It takes companies where telecommuting is the norm and establishes a virtual work environment that is very functional. Screensharing, chatting and audio conferences work immaculately whereas Skype, ScreenConnect and other resources we've tried get bogged down when hitting a certain capacity.

What do you dislike?

There's really isn't much that I dislike. I suppose it would be nice if there were more regular updates and enhancements to the software but, then again, I don't have any enhancement requests for them - they've already got a well-working product so why fix what isn't broken, I suppose.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give the free trial a go and invite a few colleagues from work to try it out. It's fun from the first time you use it and so easy to learn. Also, keep in mind that it does what it sets out to do and does it well - it's not a delphic knife of a tool but it's not trying to be either.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Desktop sharing, audio conferencing, inter-office instant messaging.

"A bit slow to provide needed features, but I can't let Sococo go... "

What do you like best?

At first glance, Sococo seems to be a rather pointless and quirky telecommunications app. "Oh, that's pretty corny," you'll say. "Why should I pay to be a colored marble in a cheesy picture of an office? Why wouldn't I just stick to Skype/Google Hangouts, which are free?"

I've been using it at my company for about 2 years now, and I love the virtual office. It really adds something to the workday, especially when things are slow. It just feels more casual than the alternatives, and for me that casual vibe makes a big difference.

What do you dislike?

Sococo's software isn't perfect, and the company has always been a bit slow to respond to important requests. I made a request to their support team about a year or so ago to make the text in the chat window more readable in the native client, and they finally got around to fixing it just recently with their new version of Sococo, and they took away a lot of really important features, too. There's no longer a keyboard shortcut for turning the mic on and off, and the icon at the top doesn't show you if your mic is on or off, either. So you have to constantly switch back to Sococo if you're having a conversation while on the job. Very inconvenient.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use the Classic native client. The new client isn't nearly as good!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sococo makes me feel like I am in the office, even though my team is 100% remote.

"No-frills virtual office space."

What do you like best?

Sococo is inherently fun. On a practical level, it gets the job done, allowing voice, chat or video communications. Playful features like choosing a colour for your avatar, "knocking" to join a meeting, or "hanging out" by a pixelated water cooler are whimsical and enjoyable.

What do you dislike?

When it's time to get to work, the actual function of Sococo doesn't feel up to par. Only a single video can be seen full size at anytime and the thumbnail view is very small. The video quality is poor and is not a reflection of your internet service- It's Sococo.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Sococo is fine, but other services are better. Keep looking.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sococo is youthful and lighthearted in nature, offering a change of pace from your average work environment. It's enjoyable to see others working on the same floor, as a reminder that you're not as alone as you might feel being remote.

"A fun and easy way to collaborate virtually"

What do you like best?

The ability to quickly jump into a virtual office to meet with one or multiple co-workers is very valuable. Those ad-hoc meetings where you just need to discuss something quickly don't always require a formal calendar invite. Being able to just knock on somebody's door (or pop right in, if that's how you roll) allows virtual teams to have the same communications capabilities as physical teams.

What do you dislike?

Sococo often has problems with bandwidth overload - too many people in a room or too much screensharing or video streaming will bring Sococo to its knees. Also, the Mac OS version lacks some of the features of the Windows product (people search, for example) which can be pretty frustrating for companies like ours who use both operating systems.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As our company grows and teams become more dispersed throughout the country, we needed a tool that would help facilitate team communication. This has allowed our virtual employees to feel much more connected to the team at HQ.

"Great fir remote teams"

What do you like best?

The ability to see the entire team in one place visually is great! It also brings our remote team together more, and makes them feel like they are actually part of the team.

What do you dislike?

The pricing. We have a large team of independent contractors, and are a small company. However, we would have to pay for a large plan with all those users, and it's just way above our price range to let everyone use it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's great, if you can afford it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Team communications, especially across distance with remote employees.

"Sococo connects you to your people! "

What do you like best?

Working from home can sometimes be an isolating experience and can make you feel disconnected from the rest of your team. When working remotely or in the office, I use Sococo regularly to collaborate with our team all over the nation!

I love that I can jump into a colleagues office, knock on my supervisor's door to ask a question and collaborate in team meetings with large groups! The screen sharing function is extremely helpful and the Sococo support team is always there to help!

What do you dislike?

The platform itself is always being improved upon and as it has gone through some recent changes there can be glitches from time to time that requires that you restart your browser or refresh Sococo to restore functionality. Anytime this has happened, the team at Sococo has been responsive and helpful!!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a free trial!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a quickly growing nationwide start-up many of our employees work from home and we are relatively spread out across the country. Sococo has brought us together as a team and a community and we have realized who close we really are to each other -- literally one mouse click away!

"Distributed workforce virtual office"

What do you like best?

Sococo has enabled us to level up the amount of collaboration on our team. We are a distributed workforce working from remote locations and Sococo gives the illusion that we are all working in the same physical office. I like the ability to pop into someone's office to get a quick answer for a question or to provide real-time feedback on a project. Team meetings in the virtual conference rooms are awesome and the screen share capabilities are pretty robust. It is amazing that with the click of a button, I can be talking with a co-worker across the country, either on a VOIP or via a video chat.

What do you dislike?

I wouldn't say that I *dislike* anything about this platform, however there are a few improvements that I would certainly recommend. It would be nice to have "white boards" in each office where notes can be left from a meeting that anyone can view. I would also like the ability to share whatever music I am playing with the team or in my office. I would like to see the quality of the video feeds increase to HD and give more controls over viewing other video feeds (i.e. like GoToMeeting controls).

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have a virtual workforce, or even virtual teams working in different locations, then Sococo would be a fantastic tool for you. This tool has revolutionized the way that our team interacts and is used daily by all team members.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Because we are a virtual company with employees that work in multiple different states, some employees may not feel connected to the rest of the group. This platform creates a sense of community amongst our employees who only meet in-person a few times each year, ensuring that everyone knows that they are part of bigger team.

We are also solving the problem of working on projects together despite the fact that our physical offices are in many different locations. We have received the benefit of quicker feedback and the ability to iterate prototypes of projects faster.

Love the ease of use and ability to quickly conduct face to face web calls.

What do you dislike?

The new HD camera takes some getting use to.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sococo allows remote workers an easy way to connect. It is great to be able to ‘jump’ into a coworker’s office and have a video call and share screens.

"A great way to bring distributed teams together"

What do you like best?

I enjoyed having individual rooms. You would imagine it would be superficial, but it actually bolstered a sense of privacy and community.

What do you dislike?

They split the web and desktop clients; we were running two separate offices that couldn't be consolidated. Frustrating.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We had a distributed team, so this allowed us to have easy, regular meetings together and always be within reach.

"Its cool and functions well, but didn’t add a ton of value."

What do you like best?

Nice to be able to share multiple screens and bounce back and forth.

What do you dislike?

Seemed to take up a ton of my ram to keep open all day. I think the new solution fixed that some.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It was a popular to use for a bit but users in some parts of the org seem to find it easier to just schedule in skype for business now. It needs a defined use case and a good rollout with communicated purpose.

Group virtual meetings. Allowed longer meetings to work in a virtual environment.
