I would only rate it a 7 because I do really like it for process workshops, design workshops, idea generation, and problem-solving, but to be used with caution as a facilitator if you are not experienced or if you do not have enough time to get familiar with it. It can easily ruin your workshop. Because its an all or nothing

Pros

Miro

  • Workflow drafting. Miro has some great tools that are super easy to use to sketch workflow processes and make notes.
  • Editing. Seems simple and a given but it's not. I've worked without "whiteboard" software where it's actually pretty difficult to edit your content. Miro makes it really easy to edit things quickly and make changes without having to do a lot of clicks.
  • Share your board. It's been great adding people to Miro and having them work on projects with me. People who have no experience with Miro are able to get in and start working in just a few minutes.

  • Quickly check a user's status and communicate with them.
  • Video conferencing is breathtaking, and the voice quality is excellent.
  • It's a very user-friendly site with straightforward responses.
  • Cloud, hybrid and on-premise deployment options are available for document sharing via chat.
  • The video conferencing quality is excellent, and it is possible to organize your groups in a professional manner.
  • This tool is easy to use and integrates with Calendar to view team members' schedules.

Cons

Miro

  • Creating frames just to write using a stylus or Apple pencil. Currently, single strokes register as single objects
  • The arrows have good customization but when two things are linked, the shape of the arrows sometimes overlaps objects on board
  • more objects and customization option
  • more color option integration, Pasting hex codes

  • Skype's UI leaves a lot to be desired, especially considering newer platforms like Zoom, Teams, Slack, Meet, and so on. It's slow and lacks many features that are now de facto in the newer communication apps.
  • Skype calendar also is often buggy - meeting times do not get updated on the calendar even if the correct time does come up on the Outlook calendar.
  • It does not give you the option to mute chats - oftentimes, you want to keep some group chats on mute without leaving them entirely.
  • Closing off a chat before it's saved will remove it from Skype history. You'd need to go search for it on Outlook mail.

Miro is very good but still too basic. [It] would be great to have more precision and some advanced tools. More control on the text size and objects alignment is a need [for] our design team. Also, the experience on the tablets is not so good. Many dead clicks and problems while trying to select objects and tools.

The software is simple to install and configure. It is rather simple to explain for correct use. It is possible to profile users for the different functions offered. It is integrated quite completely with Outlook and with Active Directory security. It performs all communication functions well with one or more interlocutors and the possibility of granting control of your computer is convenient.

There are some features that are a tiny bit clunky (having to switch between cursors to select vs. pan around the space). Also, there are inconsistencies in sizing we've found when pasting content into a board from another source which slows us down and is frustrating.

Skype for Business is fairly user-friendly and has a good UI. It has strong audio and video conference call capabilities. It's easy to conduct meetings with various stakeholders across different locations and timezones. The chat and share a file or share my screen functions work seamlessly. If your company uses Office 365, then I would highly recommend it.

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.

I have only had to reach out to the Support team at Skype for Business once with an issue, and I was pleasantly surprised and encouraged by the quickness and thoroughness of their response. The wait time was short and my question was dealt with politely and clearly, so I would say the support team has it together.

Works on all browsers we use well. I don't really use the app much. We have some organization to do since we merged our licenses from two different groups, but that isn't up to me. I do like to use frames to organize a single board better.

Skpe for business is utilized company wide in regards to my company. Everyone not only uses it, but uses it often. It is an effective way of communicating. It also integrates very nicely with outlook and all conversation history is pushed to a folder within the outlook system. We also have it so that if someone misses a message, they are sent an email reminder saying that there is a message that went unread.

Alternatives Considered

Miro

We have both Lucid and Miro in our organisation and I use both of them. Both have their own strengths. Lucid is well geared towards great diagrammatic illustrations and collaboration. But Miro templates for all kinds of diagrams, illutrations and whiteboarding makes it a great tool across our org as the vast variety of templates gives everyone a kickstart in whiteboarding - whatever functions they do; whether is technical diagrams, processes, business workflows, Miro has it all.

For the below reason I will always choose this app over its competitors: Better audio and video quality, Little to no disconnections or freezing when on a call/video conference Integrates well with mailbox/ calendar/ one drive, and SharePoint is easy to use

Return on Investment

Miro

  • Company saved money as people were able to quickly draft an idea instead of using complex tools
  • The tool also helped people understand a concept better and thus, avoiding mistakes
  • Some people sometimes waste time trying to find the information in a huge document
Benoît Desroches | TrustRadius Reviewer

Skype for Business (formerly Lync), now part of Microsoft Teams

  • Skype for Business has enabled a migration in part away from fixed line telephony and introduced the user to mobile working with a headset which cannot be overstated as being a game changer.
  • Being able to schedule Skype for Business meetings through Outlook has meant meetings with colleagues without a meeting room has been a great enabler.
