Abstract

Our design department is indeed very happy with Abstract to solve their issues with regard to versioning and collaboration, etc. The admin side of the program is not that great. It's easy and simple, however, it would be nice to limit access more easily and maybe even link Abstract with our directory. The flexibility for accessing the work designers do can't be beaten!

Miro

Agile style meetings are great with all of the existing templates. I have led brainstorming and strategic planning meetings using the tool and my team really enjoyed the interactivity. The emoticons were really fun for voting. I am preparing a virtual workshop that requires lots of interaction. This tool will be very important in making sure the workshop stays successful.

Miro

  • Can't show a video to participants, video can only be viewed by individuals.
  • There is a learning curve for users since it is different than other web conference tools.
  • Would like additional chat or polling functionality.

As mentioned, it's so intuitive that I started using it immediately without having to read a manual, watch a tutorial or go on a forum. It felt like it melded with my mind very quickly. Any time I asked myself a "what if I...?" or "can I do...?", the answer was pretty much always yes! For example, I love that it will align a bunch of shapes so they're equidistant or centred. I love symmetry and I've realised it's very important to me when creating things. The aesthetic is just as important as the content, especially when I'm sharing it with my bosses. They like to see a more sophisticated presentation of ideas and Miro lets me do that. The only reason I didn't give it a 10 is because there are some minor things that could (and I'm sure will) be improved

I have not yet had to engage support live. I have found every answer I needed by tapping the extensive knowledge base. I think they are taking the right approach in allowing me to self serve when I need some info. I will update my review if and when I need to tap a live representative.

There are very few tools that compete with Abstract right now. I would say none of them are even close to this yet.

Miro

Miro feels more intuitive than InVision. I think of the two as Apple (Miro) and Android (InVision). Both are very good products and you can ultimately do what you need to with them, but Miro has that X-Factor where everything "just works". I was invited to a board, having never even heard of Miro. I was using it pretty adeptly within a few minutes because everything I wanted to do, I could. And everything I expected to find on the board in a certain location was right there. And the best thing is it's not "over-designed". It doesn't have 5 million features that make it bloated and slow. They've found the balance of function and form. That's the sign of a well made product

Return on Investment

Abstract

  • Saves time on file management
  • Keeps old, archived work
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Miro

  • ROI is strong in Covid-19 situations where strong interaction is needed virtually
  • A good bridge between in-person and virtual since the tool can be used in person just as easily.
  • Can continue important employee learning programs as Virtual Instructor Led.
