123FormBuilder (formerly 123ContactForm)

In our case we used it in a range of varying scenarios across internal functions as well as for external clients. It is fairly well featured and suited for use across multiple use cases. Albeit we ended up not using the pay features because it was an occasional requirement for us, I think one of the areas where it would be well suited would be processes requiring online payments based on variable logic. The pricing structure ironically makes it less suited for the same scenario for users with limited requirements.

Formstack

Formstack is great for creating lead generation forms since it integrates so well with third party marketing automation platforms. You get more options for your forms than are standard with, say, HubSpot. One of the drawbacks that you need to be aware of is regarding design. If you are very concerned about the forms being able to match very specific branding and typography, you will not get what you need. Custom fonts are possible, but it takes more engineering work than is ideal. If you are a small team or don't have development resources to help you set it up, you're gonna have to compromise on the visuals.

Pros

123FormBuilder (formerly 123ContactForm)

  • Ease of constructing a form with requisite inputs
  • Customizable look and feel options based on varying requirements in our case
  • Logic based branching & validation
Prasar Sharma profile photo

Formstack

  • Allows the visual building of generic forms that can easily fit into any website and that don't have to be created by a web developer.
  • Offers fairly advanced conditions and automation scenarios that can occur, allowing for some complex form logic.
  • Allows a choice of themes as well as the ability to override the form styling in your site's own CSS.

Cons

123FormBuilder (formerly 123ContactForm)

  • More question types
  • More fields that are free

Formstack

  • The Wordpress plugin had been a bit fickle (but I think they have improved this recently).
  • Date and time fields cannot be used to trigger conditions (would come in VERY handy for an institution working with a lot of
  • The number of clicks in and out of different screen to finish setting up, say a custom email response, can be a bit tedious sometimes.

Our user base has come to rely on Formstack to get forms done. The Formstack tools make it easy to start from scratch or copy an existing form to "quick start" a new, similar form. The price is right and frees up IT staff to do more transformative work.

Formstack has awesome support! They are always quick to respond and genuinely care for their clients' success. They will work with you to find a solution or let developers know about your feature request. There are a few things on the feature request forum that I wish they would implement sooner, but I am at least grateful that they give clients a space to voice their ideas and take them into consideration.

I installed 123ContactForm myself and while I had some issues installing it I was able to visit their website and the troubleshooting information they provided in their faq section. They did offer other support if a user needed additional support, but I found the information provided on their website to be more than sufficient

We implemented on one of the earlier versions. Through continuous engineering improvements, the interface keeps getting easier and more intuitive. Therefore, later implementations keep getting easier and better.

Alternatives Considered

123FormBuilder (formerly 123ContactForm)

Looked at Zoho Forms, Google Forms, Form Assembly and a couple of others. In general there is a variety of features and it would not be wise to negatively rate any of the others. But purely from a price-feature mix, we chose to use 123ContactForm over the others and in that context it was ideal for us.

For run of the mill data collection, I have used Google Forms, Office 365 Excel Forms, and SharePoint lists. And in WordPress I have used Gravity Forms.Google Forms and Office 365 are nice tools with not nearly the same feature-set available from Formstack. While they are usually included with your SaaS subscription, they just don't offer as much formatting and conditional routing, nor the integration and notifications to other systems.SharePoint requires a huge capital investment and a PhD in order to build data collection mechanisms. Even though forms and data can integrate very well to MS SQL databases on the back end, they are clunky and dated in their operations.Gravity Forms is a solid competitor in the WordPress space. Often costing less with the ability to collect the data to a local database (mySQL). The feature set of Gravity is geared towards a different need and in my case Formstack was a better fit in all situations.
