MURAL (formerly Mural.ly)

It's great when you need to drive real decision making and action; the voting tool is particularly useful in this regard. It's a great tool to use when you want to hear all voices, and not just from the loudest individuals. I've used Mural extensively over the last two years, and I've developed an online course in how to use the tool. I've run hundreds of participative workshops with it too, it's my 'go to' for running engaging remote workshops.

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

MURAL (formerly Mural.ly)

  • It allows you to build from independent work to group exercises and discussions and using brainstorming and the voting tool to drive decision making and action.
  • It has functionality that allows you to bring your audience to different areas of the whiteboard using the 'summon everyone' function, and move between delivering material with 'presentation mode' and interactive exercises where students contribute ideas or suggestions.
  • It offers an interactive and engaging platform for collaboration and costs can be kept low because people can join sessions as visitors.

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

MURAL (formerly Mural.ly)

  • The only thing that used to bug me about Mural was the fact that you couldn’t identify participants who joined as visitors (one time collaborators appear as anonymous animals). I noticed recently that visitors can now add their name which is really useful. I expect this change came from Mural user feedback, they do seem to develop the features over time.
  • Sometimes participants can't see images that you add to the whiteboard. There's a way around it but it's a little frustrating and I'm not sure why it happens.

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.

Chat support tends to get back to you within a few hours and are always helpful.

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.

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.
