Overall Satisfaction with Miro

Miro is widely used across a variety of needs and teams. It is used for new employee onboarding activities, project initiation and orientation tasks, team 'bonding exercises, mapping workflows in collaborative workshops, and strategy development. It allows you to visually collaborate where travel is not possible or potentially unnecessary. It is superior to Microsoft Teams with respect to meeting collaboration, where people are jointly collaborating on a canvas.
  • Collaborative brainstorming sessions.
  • As-Is Process Mapping (identify bottlenecks).
  • Conducting virtual meetings & breakouts.
  • Versioning - make it easy to know what/who was changed on the canvas.
  • Make it easier to globally change fonts on a canvas.
  • Enhanced plug-ins for leading apps (Adobe, Microsoft, Power BI, Azure Dev Ops, JIRA).
  • Rich collaboration without travel as necessitated by COVID.
  • Productivity improvements - facilitate rapid team onboarding.
  • Ability to define strategic plans and team alignment very quickly.
The implementation has gone very well. Most people quickly get up to speed on the solution. We have not experienced any system outages or other major technical issues. The solution is always readily available to log in. If there is any issue it's the training. There are numerous training programs and guides available to ramp up your knowledge; however, everyone is very busy and sometimes some team members have not taken the training which slows down the meeting onboarding or leads to some challenges on some collaboration activities.
I have limited experience with the integration of the solution to enterprise applications. This is a future area of exploration for us. I also believe Miro is continuing to build this area out.
Absolutely. I am not aware of another better solution on the market to support true remote active 'in-person' collaboration. Microsoft Teams is great for document collaboration but lacks the visual interface Miro offers.

Do you think Miro delivers good value for the price?

Compared to Microsoft Teams, the solution provides superior visual collaboration. We use Teams and a solution has to offer something unique and valuable for it to be added to the application portfolio. Miro clearly does and has been added and usage has expanded from initial pilots.
Miro excels with project origination meetings, allowing team members to obtain and complete pre-workshop assignments/post introduction pages, so everyone can review them (who is who on the team) to help improve team bonding and intros. The canvas allows workshop owners to create content and define meeting paths/sessions which greatly speeds up the grounding of the meeting agenda and activity flow. Miro is indispensable for remote work teams and 'in-person' collaborative activities. Although there could be opportunities to integrate enterprise applications into the canvas to maintain 'real-time' feeds into workshops or for ongoing projects.
