Pros

I like sharing photos And videos on Messenger and I like to play with the funny features.
Messenger is a good communication software that I recommend to everyone for good discussions.
The experience using messenger has been fun, to be honest. The emojis and variety of Gifs and stickers make for a great conversation.

Pros

Seamless install and functionality. Increased our productivity immediately.
Enough space to send files very quickly, very easy to use at first time, friendly display and easy to understand.
We LOVE using this for our interoffice communications. It makes short exchanges so much easier.

Cons

In my opinion although it is very simple and intuitive, it is very rigid in terms of not being able to move the windows, which can generate waste of time for the users.
On messenger video calls may difficult 👎 and here it is connected with Facebook so it may serve same friends to us. Thus it may serve some difficulties when we sending photos.
One thing I don't like about the app is that most times, i have to log in before I can access my messages.

Cons

The only thing that I find slightly annoying is the constant flashing of the icon if the message goes unread. I understand why the feature is there but sometimes it drives me crazy.
It is difficult to add or subtract people we have on the program so the actual setting up and changing is a little harder.
We use this software in an escape room to allow our players to communicate with the Mad Scientist in the game.

Softros LAN messenger

It just works

Reviewed 3 years ago

We use this software in an escape room to allow our players to communicate with the Mad Scientist in the game. With no connection issues we have been able to make our gameplay rock solid.

Pros

We were using another LAN messenger app and it had constant connection issues. Softros has been rock solid with no connection issues.

Cons

This is paid software, but it really isn't expensive and ultimately you get what you pay for. Other than that I don't have any negatives and I wouldn't even call this a con.

Softros LAN messenger

Great for inter-office quick communication

Reviewed 3 years ago

Easy and quick communication between our offices and the front desk

Pros

It was super easy to set up and use. We are a municipal office and our reception desk is able to send us a quick note if an Administrator is needed at the counter. We also use it to shoot quick notes back and forth between our offices.

Cons

We have just started to use the messenger and know that we have not utilized it to it's full potential. Right now there are no cons that we can think of.

Softros LAN messenger

Softros LAN Messenger is "da bomb" - awesome LAN messaging with no hassles.

Reviewed 3 years ago

Easy transfer of files and various information between the 2 PCs in my work environment.

Pros

Ease of installation, simple to use, great for my small business as I currently have 2 PCs in different rooms which often need to send various messages back and forth - Softros LAN Messenger makes this really simple, child's play.

Cons

Nothing so far - could maybe be slightly cheaper, but I was happy to pay to get the great features. Really, I don't think there's anything I could fault.

Softros LAN messenger

Reviewed 5 months ago

We really like this software for what our intended purpose is - to communicate between workstations in an office setting. It is easy to use and has no real issues.

Pros

Our IT company recommended Softros LAN messenger to solve our intra office communication dilemma. It worked great to be able to message between work stations. I liked that it was always "on" and couldn't really be accidentally closed and therefore leave people unavailable.

Cons

Since our IT company installed the software, I can't really comment on how easy that process was, but I do think that when we wanted to add a workstation, there was a new expense involved. I do think this software was somewhat limited in that it could not be used on cell phones to further expand our ability to communicate.

Softros LAN messenger

love it!

Reviewed 3 years ago

as previously stated...we liked it and used it daily

Pros

We are a tax service. Our office is small but we are extremely busy during tax season. Messenger is great for us, with a few short keystrokes we can talk to each other without getting up or picking up the phone. It's perfect for us!

Cons

having the list of users in my way at times, I wish I could reduce its size without putting it in the taskbar

Softros LAN messenger

Perfect Office Messenger

Reviewed 3 years ago

Office communication is enhanced. Confidential information can be typed versus verbal communicated around patients. This works very well in our pharmacy where we have multiple rooms and we can refer back to the message for information.

Pros

This software does not take up much CPU or computer memory resources and works very well. Each computer is customized very easily to whom is using the terminal and messages can be stored for long term retrieval. Web links, file data file transfer links, the program fits our needs very well.

Cons

It would be nice to show pictures within the messenger but this is a low request. you can always send a link to the file or web location. I'm sure this prevents excessive resource utilization and helps with the logging of messages.

Softros LAN messenger

No more running around the office!

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

Softros has been a lifesaver when I have a patient in front of me and I need to communicate with staff in the back office. The messages are sent instantly and easy to read and write back. We are a busy office and can all keep each other updated and on the same page. It's a secure messenger software so we know our patient information is safe.

Cons

It does it's job! Nothing to complain about.
