Overall Satisfaction with Miro

We started using Miro right in the beginning of a company-wide online project which involed numerous internal and external stakeholders to simultaneously work on a document. It has proven to be the perfect tool to shape customer journeys and define target personas: you start with a simple brainstorming about your topic and merge it over time to a professional process description supported by Miro's collaboration support and innovative layout/aligment capabilities. Since Miro boards are almost unlimited in size, it is easy to use this application to merge images, graphics and text components to define ideal page layouts and variations. I honestly wouldn't know any other ideation tool which provide such flexibility and running completely in your browser the same time. Nevertheless, as always there is still some small room for improvement left. From my perspective this applies to the functional range of the iOS app and Miro's exporting options, which are still challenging, since you have decide between PDFs which are either hardly recognizable or huge in file size.

Pros

  • Tons of objects which can be easily adapted and aligned
  • Combine different assets like images, graphics & text without size restrictions
  • Allow easy co-operation in virtual teams

Cons

  • PDF export should provide more flexibility
  • iOS app needs more features and better feature support
  • Navigation bar needs some improvements to be more intuitive
  • Fast ideation times
  • Return on invest
  • Feedback culture
  • Collaboration
For a global business like ours Miro helped to collect feedback and design inputs. Despite different time-zones and heterogenious experience onboarding to Miro was always fast and intuitive.

Would you buy Miro again?

Yes

Well suited:
  • Idea ideation, brainstorming and mindmapping
  • Visualization of layouts and templates
  • Presentation of complex structures and processes
Less appropriate:
  • Cross-device workflows e.g. if you start your work on the desktop and want to continue on your ipad
  • Need to generate customized PDF exports e.g. if you have to find a good compromise between level of detail and readability.
