Overall Satisfaction with Sococo

My team at work uses Sococo. We use as our 'virtual office space' when we're not all physically present in the building. The ability to have one own's virtual office allows us to easily hop into a 'call' with one another to discuss various projects. In addition, the presence of meeting rooms makes it easy to have larger team meetings. The screen sharing utility makes it easy to work through various bugs etc. that require some group effort to solve. My favorite part about Sococo is that it's easy to quickly hop between different calls within the virtual office.
  • Good voice codex. Voices come across clearly and I've never had problems struggling to understand another person due to static.
  • Easy screen sharing. The screen sharing is intuitive and easy to use. In addition, it's easy for multiple people to be sharing a screen at the same time, and viewers can easily hop between the different shared screens.
  • Has a mobile phone application version, web browser version , and stand alone client.
  • 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.
  • Overall, I feel that it has positively affected my team, and helped us easily communicate and accomplish our goals.
I prefer Sococo over Lync/Skype for a few reasons.
I feel the user interface is slicker, better voice clarity, easier to hop between calls. And, all call members can go to a common chat room on their own accord instead of one person trying to invite everybody. I also feel that it's easier to share one's screen and swap between different shared screens with Sococo.
I think it's great for a team that does a lot of remote work that has to communicate a lot. It's easy to hop between calls/share screens, in a more smoother fashion than a traditional 'Skype' style of voice chat program. I've also found it to be smoother for hopping between shared screens than other options.
