Sococo overview

What is Sococo?

Sococo is a cloud-based virtual workplace solution designed to connect and engage remote or in-office team members in one virtual environment. Team members can stay connected and collaborate on different projects using virtual avatars and office maps. Sococo includes virtual office maps with meeting rooms, virtual avatars with status updates, team messaging, voice and video chat, screen-sharing, and much more.

With Sococo, users can overcome the physical barriers of remote work or in-office work by allowing users to stay connected using virtual office maps. In order to provide teams with more transparency, Sococo allows users to update their availability statuses using avatars, which can display whether a user is in a meeting or is unavailable and offline. In the virtual environment, Sococo can provide meeting rooms so users can quickly collaborate on any project without the hassle of using third-party software. Users can collaborate with Sococo's video and voice calling and 1-to-1 chat messaging and through advanced screen-sharing capabilities.

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!

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.

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.

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...
