Overall Satisfaction with Miro

Miro is an excellent tool for synchronous collaboration. It addresses a much-required need for meeting attendees to collaborate when in live meetings, and it allows for collaborative annotation of PDFs and generation of mind maps. There is also the option for sharing externally and exporting out the produced whiteboard. Miro also allows people to work asynchronously and tag members with specific updates.

Pros

  • Mind maps
  • PDF annotation
  • Chats
  • Stylus writing support
  • Team meetings
  • Tracking other's positions on the board

Cons

  • Better ink rendering
  • More features on free plans for non-users
  • More effective tracking procedures with specific control for admins (e.g. forced tracking)
  • Improved productivity
  • Time saved
  • Lowered costs
I think there could be some scope for improving the overall implementation, however, this is insignificant in the grand scheme of things. The main thing is speedy synchronization.
Miro integrates very well with Zoom and other platforms. It does struggle as it is browser-based and can be somewhat heavy on users with low spec machines.
We have managed to produce some excellent examples of good practice by collaborating. We have also managed to integrate our ideas to form well-structured brainstorming sessions.

Do you think Miro delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Yes

Miro allows for non-organizational members to participate.
Miro works well for meetings where most members are tech-savvy and are
open to learning how the platform works. It also works really well as a
teaching tool for annotations and explanations of documents. It works
well for collaborative activities, and particularly well if people
have access to a stylus/graphics tablet setup. It does not work well for
those with the tendency to feel motion sickness, or with too many
participants as it can become somewhat overwhelming.
