123FormBuilder (formerly 123ContactForm)

If you have a lot of customer interaction with your site, where you need to collected specific, targeted, situational data, 123FormBuilder is an absolute winner. If your site is more information and perhaps leads to a software platform or other product or service, 123FormBuilder might prove unnecessarily robust for you. Something simpler and cheaper might make more sense for you. But in most cases where you're seeking to collect information from customers, I'd happily recommend 123FormBuilder.

GoCanvas

GoCanvas is ideal for any company that dispatches individuals to sites or locations and then those individuals have to do some sort of report or form to turn in and then send to their clients. The dispatch function adds a lot of power to the platform to allow one traceable documentation from scheduling to the finalization of the report. The best part is that it can be customized to any trade or function out there. It also is handy for mechanics or any other trade that needs to log info at their destinations and submit those to an office or client

Pros

  • Customizability, particularly with regard to matching website design. This helped things look slick, rather than out of place. The site was seamless with these form additions.
  • Easy UX - not only was I able to work my way through the software easily in no time at all, it was also easy to hand off to others, knowing that it was always a step-by-step process.
  • All the bases were covered - when it came to form creation and data collection, they had fields for everything you could think of, as well as the customizability to add what you needed, where, and when.

  • GoCanvas puts a powerful platform in your hands to create your own "apps" and PDF output for various needs. It is very flexible and allows customization to many different business scopes. Instead of having to pay a technical team to develop everything I was able to develop all our functionality with periodic help from their tech support staff.
  • They are constantly developing new functionality into the platform and take the suggestions from their users seriously to add features that they request. They also integrate with many other apps we already use like dropbox.
  • The price is reasonable and they offer different account pricing structures to fit small businesses.

Cons

  • One-off payment integration requires a higher subscription
  • Storage is not commensurate with pricing
  • Not exactly a strong negative, but could work on pricing it better for non-US markets

  • Some of their customization of the PDF Report builder is limited, but this is more than likely for simplicity sake. There have been some limitations based on their programming limitations, but we've been able to get around some of them.
  • Tech support is not instantly available and can take up to a day to get back to you.

I like the product, but I am no longer in control of the project where this product was being used. However, I would definitely use 123ContactForm on future products

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

Alternatives Considered

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.

GoCanvas is much easier to use and customize than Google Forms. We have used Google Forms in the past, but seem to find that GoCanvas works better for our company and what we do. The reports are cleaner, more professional, and easier to use than Google Forms. I feel that it makes us stand out from our competitors when trying to sign contracts.

Return on Investment

  • It helped with supplier/client information leakage. Occasionally during fast on-boarding information gets left out which later may create issues during filing (or in unfortunate cases of dispute).
  • Payment requests by suppliers & remittance info from clients was easily logged ensuring easy information flow.
  • Improved cost basis for information gathering for clients
Prasar Sharma profile photo
  • I believe that GoCanvas has had a positive impact on my company because it has enabled us to sign more contracts with homeowners because of the efficiency gained, which in turn gave us more revenue.
