SoWork is an exceptional alternative tool, offering much of the features that were staples in Vowel. Want to continue your team's productivity without missing a beat? Well, SoWork is here to save the day! Below you'll find feature comparisons, highlights, and steps to make your transition to SoWork as smooth as possible.

SoWork Highlights

A delightful difference from Vowel is that in SoWork, your team has a place to work together. You're able to choose your avatar and customize your office in any way you'd like! There's plenty of room for your entire team, and opportunities for bonding are endless as meetings can be planned or spontaneous - all by just walking up to someone!

On top of being a place for team connection and productive meetings, SoWork was the first smart digital office on the market, with their Sophia Bot providing AI generated meeting notes, summaries, and action items. Just like in Vowel, the main themes of the meeting are clear, and your action items are ready to go. Need to catch up on what you've missed or refer to the notes/action items throughout the week? That's all at your fingertips in SoWork.
