Sococo

Great for communication and work from home offices. It has a great visual layout, which removes the disconnect among the organization when working from home. It is less appropriate for bigger companies due to the official capacity limits for meetings. Sococo is an excellent way to check in with staff and be accountable to each other. However, if you are always working from home - this program may not be ideal due to the limitations mentioned earlier.Sococo is good if each employee has access to very high-speed internet. High -speed internet is a limitation for those in rural areas.

Pros

Abstract

  • Versioning for desginers
  • Collaboration between team members

Sococo

  • Conference calls. No need for formal invites, excellent call quality and reliability.
  • Virtual rooms - see who's talking with who.
  • Instant chat - can also use Slack as a backend.

Cons

Abstract

  • Asset exports are not as great as Zeplin and others.
  • Filtering within files.

Sococo

  • On rare occasions my co-workers have had problems where they open Sococo and it doesn't recognize when they're speaking. However, restarting the program usually fixes it.
  • Users can 'knock' on another's 'virtual' office to come in to talk. Essentially, the same as waiting for a person to pick up when calling on a landline. An option to auto-let anyone in who knocks would be useful.

Usability

Abstract

Abstract has a difficult learning curve. If a feature-branch workflow is new to you, then it will take some getting used to. They make a lot of updates to the interface and these feature releases get ahead of their documentation. They rely heavily on an excellent customer support team and are present on various Slack channels to help design professionals with issues.

Abstract by nature is complex and has to respond to whatever changes in Sketch. So there are frequent issues. Support can be slow to respond and are not always helpful, but they are quick to find and patch the bugs. Overall, it's not the best support, but it hasn't been detrimental.

Sococo didn't seem to have a strong support line. In comparison to other products, such as Microsoft Teams, it did not regularly check in with us. There should be opportunities to give feedback on the quality of the program periodically and if we had any issues. Sometimes, Sococo would crash, and we would 'restart it' but not know why it happened.

I purchased and administer Abstract. It was requested by our design department who evaluated it.

Sococo

WebEx Meetings, Skype for Business, and Google Hangouts all require that you create some sort of "call event" that people can join or leave. Sococo gives you the ability to seamlessly move between meetings within one app and also provide a status of available or unavailable, or better yet, people can just see that you're in a meeting and who you're in that meeting with. This provides the opportunity for a boss to step in and determine a meeting isn't super important, so they can talk to someone in the meeting.

Return on Investment

Abstract

  • Single source of truth for the team.
  • Could quickly get expensive with corporate accounts.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Sococo

  • Sococo completely overcame the problem of staying in touch with remote development teams.
  • Enabled daily scrum meetings, sprint reviews, etc.
  • Helped keep everybody engaged in the project.
