Overall Satisfaction with Miro

We use Miro to work together during the process of building and maintaining cloud software solutions. Much of our workforce is remote, and having a virtual whiteboard on which we can all collaborate in real time is invaluable. During pandemic lockdowns, Miro went from useful to absolutely invaluable.

Use cases for Miro in our organisation include technical software design, sprint retros, and quarterly planning.
  • The core feature of being able to work together on a whiteboard in real time is great.
  • The drawing tools are useful (and can be quite fun!)
  • The add-ons such as voting/polling and timers add a lot to the experience.
  • Not using so many system resources
  • More add-ons
  • Better direction on how to structure folders etc. for an org - boards often hard to find
  • Team cohesiveness is improved because we can work together remotely
  • Efficiency is improved because discussions done on Miro can be preserved to look at later, for time-shifted employees
  • Team bonding is improved because gifs and drawings are fun
As I've previously stated, Miro has meant that we can now collaborate on a whiteboard in real time with our remote colleagues. Our design sessions, sprint planning and retros can all be completed by the team over a video call, rather than asynchronously. The whiteboarded information remains available so we can see how our thinking progressed.

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 great for use as a virtual whiteboard - i.e. for scenarios where people would normally gather round a board in a room, but are now working remotely.

Miro is less good as a place to store documentation and decisions around software development stuff, because discovery and searchability are much harder.
