My business is HR consulting. Best benefits: organize freelance consultants by projects and tasks.

Well suited for large distributed teams. Hard to introduce where someone who should know better has mandated an inferior Microsoft product.

Cons

  • Need to improve in the way it shows project development in time: Gantt chart, schedules, etc.

  • It would be great if it supported other major browsers. Not everyone has Chrome installed.
  • The ongoing subscription cost is difficult to justify. This is the only reason we stopped using it.

Alternatives Considered

Better features for project development follow up than Asana and Wrike (previous choices)

Sococo lacks the power of Slack for storing and searching old messages but I think Dlack is overkill in most situations. When using instant messages ad an alternative to a quick phone call who needs a record?

Skype for Business is just awful for conference calls. You can't have ad-hoc meetings. Also people outside the organisation (contractors, etc.) won't have the client software.

  • Positive: Internal Communication and Collaboration

  • 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.
