More and more organizations, particularly start-up companies are dispersed across a wide geography. Virtual organizations, with skilled team members around the world, are the heart of innovation in many areas. Sococo provides an integrated toolset around the metaphor of a map of a virtual office - cubicles, offices, common areas, meeting rooms - and then introduces an avatar-based mode of interaction between team members and the outside world.
Sococo's main advantage is the integration of such tools as online meetings, shared documents, VoIP telephony, presence indication, and privacy - instead of a cobbled-together mix of online tools, email, IM, VoIP, and desktop sharing.
