Good virtual office app

2019-11-09

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.

Cons

The mobile app does not show you the workspace as the desktop app, but as a list of workspaces.

Antiquated and Clunky

2019-03-28

Webex wins, hands-down, as a virtual meeting place. Sococo is pretty bad.

Pros

The only positive for Sococo is the fact the design portrays office spaces, which is pretty neat.

Cons

It is not easy to share screen, not easy to invite others to your office/meeting rooms, conference line dial-in options are minimal, the UI is grainy and very antiquated, and the software itself is unimpressive and slow.

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.

-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.

Perfect for remote jobs

2019-02-05

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

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.

Not worth it

2020-05-25

Pros

It's easy to get into a room and simply start chatting. You can invite someone in the room and close the door to avoid being disturbed.

Cons

Video quality is poor and the video is often disconnected in group chat to save bandwidth while Zoom managed great with the same people at the same time.

cute but may not be pragmatic

2019-12-05

it was a cute idea and has a lot of potential to allow you to interact virtually in a more natural "in-person" way.

Pros

It allows you to setup offices and virtual meeting rooms, you can lock virtual screens onto various websites and content. you pop in and out of rooms as if you were physically present.

Cons

also the mobile client had reliability issues.

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

2018-06-05

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.

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.

Use it to create a local space feeling inside company with virtual offices and ppl around the world.

2018-06-27

It creates a feeling of real office environment. Really good for online offices with employes around the globe. It has nice customization options as well. Is a little bit pricey though.

Pros

Its really easy to use and it creates a great feeling of being in a real office, which helps a lot companies with virtual environments and employees around the globe.

Cons

Sometimes it can get a little laggy and other times the server can go down without ahead notice. Unmute or screen sharing take like a minute or so after last update. Although it add some interesting features.

Virtual and visual office

2018-06-05

We were able to go 100% remote as a company

Pros

It is very easy to see who is out of the office and who is away.

Cons

The software tends to bug out quite a bit. It takes up quite the amount of computer speed so sometimes I find it bogging down other programs. A quick internet speed is a must.

A great virtual office

2019-01-16

In overall is a good software and is continously improving, its very rare that the system fails completely and sometimes there are big maintenance times but you are always notified ahead of time. A little bit expensive, but it is worth to have if you can afford it and have a lot of people working together from all around the globe.

Pros

It creates a natural feeling of being in a real office, its easy to manage and you can always know who is available to talk to.

Cons

Sometimes its a little unresponsive when you need to unmute or more than one person is sharing the screen. And sometimes it doesnt detect very well the audio and you need to refresh the media to start listening, it happens specially if you have a fluctuating internet bandwith.

Pricing plan change shutdown our company's collaboration.

2020-01-31

Pros

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.
