Overall Satisfaction with Miro

Used for mainly process mapping and diagram creations for business needs. The business problem is the inability to visualize many issues/layout - in a convenient format - the process of issues/circumstances we encounter in the industry. This has often been applicable in process mapping, code mapping, troubleshooting, interview technical questions, etc.
  • Ability to share seamlessly with other work colleagues.
  • Great UI and easy to use, whether it be creating a board or designing the board.
  • Navigation of website is easy.
  • App is not required, but app does make it easier to use Miro.
  • Simultaneous editing capabilities.
  • Bit difficult to narrow relevant projects; took awhile to figure out.
  • Inability to scale multiple things at once.
  • Lack of shapes/visual tools which would make process mapping much easier.
  • Positive: More rapid project completion
  • Positive: Collaboration encouragement
  • Positive: Ease of sharing and improving team effort
  • Negative: Initial learning curve
  • Negative: Lack of compatibility with other programs
Unfortunately, I do not have many key insights regarding Miro Implementation. For the most part, there were not many major issues encountered aside from the initial humps that often occurred during implementation. It took on the role of a Teams/Google Doc (simultaneous edit) but allowed for visuals which was an incredible help. Furthermore, the installation app process and integration into the work network didn't cause many issues.
Simply flawless. As was mentioned in the previous section, there was little to no issue with Miro's integration into the work area. The only difficulty often came with translating information between Miro and other commonly used office programs. That being said, it was not too much of a hassle to utilize Miro in the current programs used for my organization's workflow.
Miro has had a significant, positive impact in improving my organization's ability to collaborate on new projects, not only with members of my current team and throughout the organization, but across other organization's as well as it has been a great tool to work with vendors/contractors. This is more apparent with remote workers, from different locations, as Miro's remote capabilities have allowed teams to work more effectively during COVID-19 pandemic quarantine protocols. Very fulfilling in a niche market, similar to Zoom and video conferences.

Do you think Miro delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Miro's feature set?


Did Miro live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Miro go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Miro again?


Miro stacks up well against the aforementioned three products. Despite us choosing Miro, however, we also utilize two of the three aforementioned products. That being said, Miro has been great in allowing for project boards to be shared with others not within the network; something that is often an issue with Microsoft programs.
Specific Scenarios where Miro is well suited: 1. When creating/editing Process Mapping simultaneously 2. When creating/editing Software Steps Mapping simultaneously 3. Troubleshooting, with multiple colleagues 4. Visual Aid for multiple uses Specific Scenarios where Miro is less Appropriate: 1. Note Taking, where other programs are more suitable 2. Data Matrix Organization, which requires more of an Excel-style of interface
