Overall Satisfaction with Miro

As a consulting company, we often organize workshops with clients. During the COVID pandemic, we were not allowed to go on-site with our clients and had to find an alternative. We decided to go with Miro for organizing online workshops. Certainly, during the brainstorming phase, it is nice to use Miro as a whiteboard tool where everybody can add ideas. These ideas are then organized afterward. There are lots of good templates available within Miro and it is easy to add your own templates as well. Another great advantage for our teams is the easy integration with Microsoft Teams.
  • Replace physical whiteboards and post-its for online meetings.
  • Enable online collaboration internally and externally.
  • Integration with online meeting software, e.g. Microsoft Teams.
  • Version management, tracking of changes.
  • Easier switching between viewer and editor mode.
  • High-quality exports of large whiteboards.
  • Business continuity during the pandemic.
  • Reduced project completion time.
  • Increased customer satisfaction.
Miro could perfectly be used as a standalone tool. It is available both web-based and as installed software, which I only used on a Windows computer. If you are a user of Microsoft Teams and want to use Miro during your meetings, I suggest that you link Miro with Microsoft Teams. The integration process is easy and both tools work together very well.
As mentioned before, I started using Miro as a standalone tool. Later on, I started sharing my Miro screen during online meetings with Microsoft Teams. At a certain moment in time, my colleague explained to me that Miro could easily be integrated with Teams and showed me how to do it; it was indeed a very convenient process and made Miro an even better tool for me.
Within our company, we use Miro for both internal collaboration and collaboration with clients. For internal meetings, we already had a sharepoint environment were real-time collaboration was possible. The greatest value of Miro for me, was the ability to organize online workshops with our clients. It allows for an easy and convenient way of working toegether during ideation and prioritization workshops.

Would you buy Miro again?


Before we used to meet physically and work on physical whiteboards and use real Post-Its. At the beginning of the pandemic, we tried out the Whiteboard function within Microsoft Teams, but this was not really convenient for us. Miro works way better and is now able to link with Microsoft Teams anyway.
Miro is well suited for working together on thinking processes, such as brainstorming. It allows for an easy gathering of multiple ideas and collaborating on these ideas in different frameworks. It is less suited for individual presentations, where well-structured and good-looking slides are needed. Then I would suggest that you use specific presentation software, such as Microsoft Powerpoint.
