Crowdbase

I wouldn't suggest Crowdbasefor smaller companies, even for bigger companies a more integrated solution would be desirable. It may suit companies that want their collaboration separate from project management and CRM, but at least for our organisation it seems to make more sense to have most of our work tools in one place

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.

Cons

Crowdbase

  • It is very limited
  • Although it has an API it doesn't link to the services we use.
  • It isn't customisable like podio.

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.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Crowdbase

Crowdbase's strength may lie in its ability to do just one main thing well, but for us this was a massive limitation. I know that it is not trying to be Podio and it is therefore unfair to compare the two but there are features that overlap. for us Podio was better suited.

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.
