Overall Satisfaction with Miro

Miro has been an invaluable collaboration tool to be able to brainstorm ideas, especially when trying to create new workflows or editing current ones. Since collaboration happens in real-time, all participants can work individually from their own device yet contribute to the overall project in Miro. We use it both within the organization and across multiple organizations located worldwide. Miro solves the business problem of being able to easily collaborate in real-time even though we are all online and in various places around the globe.
  • Used the flowchart template to start the discussion for a new workflow process involving the creation of digital badges.
  • Used the brainwriting template to facilitate an ice breaker for a 2-day, online, seminar.
  • Any of the templates used include intuitive tools that allow users to add their own shapes, posts, lines, etc.
  • Miro boards are fantastic because you can build out a mind map or workflow endlessly as the workspace is undefined. However, there are times that I wished there was a feature that allowed a pre-defined workspace, like say letter size, to visually control how much "stuff" is inputted on the board itself.
  • Not sure if I just can't find this feature but having easy object alignment and grouping tools would be very helpful.
  • Miro has increased productivity 25%.
  • Miro has reduced project completion time by almost 30%.
  • Miro has increased communication 50%.
While the web browser (desktop) version of Miro works really well, it absolutely shines if you're able to utilize the power of natural touch and handwritten input that the mobile version of Miro provides via iOS and Android. The same benefits occur when using touch-screen laptops like a Surface or 2-in-1 laptop with a touchscreen.
Miro does not have a steep learning curve and using it intermittently is not detrimental because the tools are very intuitive and can be easily remembered. The biggest hangup I find with most new users is just how to get started. Many times, new users get stuck if they just use a blank board versus using a template and adjusting it to fit their needs.
Miro has been invaluable during the pandemic. However, this has had unintended results. Because the pandemic has forced remote, online meetings, having a tool like Miro has actually increased productivity and communication because we do not need to coordinate meeting rooms or account for travel times. Also, team members can participate from anywhere in the world as long as they have an Internet connection.

Miro is on par with Lucidspark, but Lucidspark's lack of mobile apps is why we selected Miro. Visio, while a long-time industry-standard tool, is expensive and difficult to use in a real-time, collaborative environment. We also tried MURAL, but again, Miro's mobile apps are much richer and more developed. Pricing, tools, and templates were very similar between these two products but the implementation across various devices was just better with Miro.
Miro is well suited for any situation, remotely online or in-person, where all users have an Internet-connected device with high-speed Internet access. While you could have a single device with one user inputting all of the suggestions from a group of people, this would be an ineffective use of the collaborative power of Miro.
