Miro is awesome!
Score 10 out of 10
Overall Satisfaction with Miro
Miro is currently only being used by our department, and for presentation purposes to external in-house departments and external clients from time to time. We once used Whiteboard, but the functionality and UX of Miro, the efficiency and lack of "loading time" on a board, as well as the seamless entering of data onto the board, helped us make an easy decision to switch to Miro. Presenting on Miro seems cleaner, faster, and more organized to clients.
- User interface.
- Efficiency in loading big boards and images.
- Easy drawing and note taking on the board.
- Easy sharing to outer users(not within the team with a seat).
- Too many functions - want to use but don't know where to start.
- We end up using just a few of the functions and not to its fullest potential.
- Bringing outer people in is relatively easy, but wish they could see/access/adjust as necessary or per project need(or maybe like a temporary seat solution?)
- Much faster turnaround on projects/project explanation.
- Definitely improved productivity.
- Improved collaboration within the team.
I would put in 10/10 except for the fact that the implementation is still lacking in terms of our full use of Miro's potential. We are stuck on using the several few functions that we've gotten used to but have not branched out for sake of efficiency and time. Perhaps a more in-depth and intimate team tutorial of how other functionalities could be used (and "practice" sessions) might be worth it?
It's fairly easy from a drop-and-drag perspective, but for those that have used PowerPoint for the longest time, it might be harder to get used to because of all the various functionalities.
Do you think Miro delivers good value for the price?
Are you happy with Miro's feature set?
Did Miro live up to sales and marketing promises?
Did implementation of Miro go as expected?
Would you buy Miro again?
- Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365), Microsoft Teams and Microsoft Powerpoint
Microsoft Whiteboard is the biggest contender for us. I say "contender" but it's barely - Miro is 10,000% better.
Appropriate in casual/business casual settings where we'd like to (as designers) present thumbnails, concepts, and an overall creative environment of our work process. Probably not as suited for a very professional setting with higher executives. Also not appropriate for "formal presentations"(as mentioned previously) that need to be collaborated with outer departments and/or clients, since they can't access/use as easily.
