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.

Google Forms is well suited for data collection between clients and internal cross-department teams. This can be branded for your company and used to view and analyze data collected for subsequent action. It is well-suited for not only small populations but larger groups and will support the compilation of medium - complexity data sets

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

Google Forms

  • Simple & Easy to create. You need little to no knowledge on the working of Google forms, the process is intuitive and quick.
  • Data collection is a breeze. The data gathered from google forms is precisely presented to you without modification. Integration with Google Sheets, provides us with more flexibility to filter and sort complex data fields.
  • Personalization - Google forms allows us to brand the surveys/questionnaires that we send out. They feel a little more personalized and worked up that just generic forms that our competitors send out.

Cons

123FormBuilder (formerly 123ContactForm)

  • Some employees are intimidated at first. After all, it is html.
  • There is so much functionality that it can be easy for novices to get lost.
  • Will there be more payment flexibility? parents use more of the bank to person payment options.
Ann Murray, M. Ed. profile photo

Google Forms

  • My number one issue is that in quizzes, the Multiple Choice Grid format (essentially, a matching section, which is the ideal format for some information) will not allow an answer key to be programmed. This means manual grading of an item of this type.
  • Some features are not very intuitive, such as adding an answer key. It's rather buried. The Help option will provide guidance, but I feel that as a relatively tech-savvy person, I should be able to find and use all commonly used features without having to go to the Help section.
  • Forms do not automatically include email notifications to the creator when participants finish the quiz, and this setting has to be turned on manually for each form you create. It would be handy if there were an across-the-board option to indicate that you do or don't want email notifications for responses to all your Forms.

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 love google forms, it is simple enough to get all the voting and attendance done that we need. I rate it this high because I have recommended it to a lot of my friends at school who run clubs. It is very user friendly and I had almost no problems with it what so ever

I like the support and the support team is very helpful. I do wish that there was an online chat instead of email, I don't know if this has changed because I haven't needed help in a while but that is the only thing that I wish google forms would include

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

123FormBuilder (formerly 123ContactForm)

Compared to JotForm or Woofoo, 123ContactForm offers a much better interface and better flexibility than the other tools. I have used JotForm only to get stumped by their inability to push the limits of the form. As for Woofoo, the level of ease of use in terms of their interface leaves much to be desired. Any updates made to their form was down using a WYSIWYG, where with 123ContactForm you can make the updates while building the form

Survey Monkey can be a tad more clunky in the building- there is something that is so seamless when using Google products. Google Forms we use when we don't want something too complicated- and most people are very familiar with the Google Forms process, so I trust the backend the entire time. In more recent years, we find ourselves turning to Google Forms more- I am a more tech savvy member of the team, but what I like about using Google Forms is that I can pass it on to my other team member, who feels less confident in this area. With SurveyMonkey, I'm typically the main staff member who feels like they can work it out adeptly. Plus, as I've mentioned, the price is absolutely impossible to beat for the quality
