Overall Satisfaction with Miro
Miro is used in an Agile setup, allowing remote teams to contribute during Scrum instances altogether, in an easy and seamless way. With several templates, I'm pretty sure you'd find what you need! We can interact altogether, (20 people+) without lag or technical issues yet and it allows us to give everybody a proper space to express themselves. Simple to use, and brings a lot of value!
- Multiple interaction altogether on a board.
- Everybody can express oneself in big meetings.
- It's web-based, so just a web browser is enough to be able to use it.
- Ease of access for emoticons.
- Login in process can be cumbersome with SSO with Slack.
- Always logs me out after too short a time, doesn't recognize I was logged in and offers me to signup instead of logging in.
- Improved productivity during design/collaboration meetings.
- pricing is fair, so not a big impact on our budget.
- Some time was lost because of the login vs password process when opening shared boards.
It seems well implemented, (I'm usually using the web browser app), it's rather fast even for big boards. The SSO with Slack is useful (even if sometimes glitchy) to share only one account across tools. It sometimes doesn't properly detect if I'm using a mousepad or a mouse (touchPad on a Macbook Pro vs a cabled mouse).
I have no experience of technically integrating Miro into a team/company setup, as it was done by another team.
It has impacted our team positively, by allowing us to have a synchronized, editable, shared dashboard we can all interact on at the same time. Paired with a videoconference tool, it's close to being in the same room with our teammates, and it allows us to be nearly as efficient.

Would you buy Miro again?
Miro is very well suited for remote teams interacting in design sessions, or agile instances like retro where sharing is essential. It allows everybody to have the opportunity to write what they want. It might be less easy to use if the team is only partly remote. It does not fully replace a proper Agile board.
