Overall Satisfaction with Miro

We use Miro to enable our international teams to collaborate in real time and help us create an innovative and engaging work space. Miro has helped us re-create in-person strategic planning courses, which have not be feasible during the past year due to the pandemic and has created a platform that allows for employees that are typically not able to join in-person trainings to attend.
  • Collaboration
  • Active planning and editing
  • Organization and strategy
  • Hard learning curve
  • Some features can be hard for real-time collaboration
  • Easy for all users to edit the board, which can disrupt the design and make it messy
  • Improved productivity
  • Increased collaboration
  • Increased monitoring and evaluation abilities
Miro can have a slight learning curve if users have used similar platforms previously (e.g., MURAL). One key takeaway was having a single user design the templates for each training and then providing those templates to all our team members, who could then edit and add to those templates as necessary.
We had some difficulty exporting our notes and templates out of Miro. Some of the items we designed would have been really helpful to share with other users who did not have Miro but we found the process of exporting the templates in a way in which they could be edited was challenging.
It has been a game-changer! It has allowed our teams who worked across the world to collaborate in real-time as if they were attending the same in-person training. For our organization, this was probably the most important aspect of this tool.

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Miro go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Miro again?

Yes

Miro and MURAL were quite similar in my experience. The one benefit of MURAL vs. Miro would be the ease of moving around the whiteboard and editing. Miro took a bit of adjustment since you have to right-click to move the screen around, which can take some time to get used to.
Miro has worked really well for our team when we are not able to work in person. It has worked well for real-time collaboration as well as providing a space for teams to work independently on a joint project. For projects of more than 20 people, it can be difficult to capture all participants' feedback and can be very confusing if all users have access to the board. From my experience, it is best suited for small groups
