Overall Satisfaction with Miro

I primarily use Miro as a collaboration tool between different groups. Other tools need different levels of access (SharePoints, shared drives etc.) per level and region, which is quire restrictive. Other tools also have limited features. Miro is easy to modify, easy to access, and the features allow people to be creative.
  • Ease of use
  • Access
  • App
  • Slows my machine down
  • Whiteboard can be too big
  • Takes a long time to load
  • Positive - increased collaboration
  • Negative - Miro crashing, lost productivity
  • Positive: encouraged creativity
I don't remember much about the download and install of Miro. From what I cam remember - Miro was easy to download and install, and the app to easily launch is useful. However - it can be slow to launch. Also, the SSO (single sign-on) often fails. Integration could be better.
As noted in previous comments - Miro is great for brainstorming and collaborating with large diverse global teams. However, it is difficult to create professional content to use in presentations, or for writing reports - so hard to get the right type of content into other areas where it is needed.
It has helped a lot. Collaboration is one of the key strengths of Miro. Anyone can edit, and you can still set read only / read/write access. You can pull people to one point in the board, and can do polls. It is easy to modify stickies and re-size things, making it easy to organize yet still be creative.

Do you think Miro delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Are you happy with Miro's feature set?

Yes

Did Miro live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Miro go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Miro again?

Yes

Miro is more flexible when it comes to editing, and there are more options available to be creative. It is easy to share and collaborate, and more user-friendly. It also feels "fun" to use. While it's noted that Miro can crash if the user does not have enough PC RAM - MS Teams can crash too, so it's not a problem just with Miro.
Great for collaboration and flexibility and brainstorming (deciding on priorities on an impact matrix, collecting brainstorming ideas from a wide audience, sharing updates and information). Less appropriate for actually creating professional content for presentation (eg, reports, charts, presentations etc,). Also - users will need to have a decent amount of PC RAM.
