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.

GoSpotCheck

GoSpotCheck has been great when we want to collect data regarding price, number of items, yes or no responses and pictures, however it is not best used as a tool for audited large number or products. It is fairly easy to do this in the app but the data from the backend is a little bit of a nightmare! I'm hoping one day this can be looked into and provide a different way of collecting the multiple select question data to better suit audit data.

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.
  • GSC's picture quality and capabilities are amazing. This is what we really use this app for out in the field. Our clients want clean and clear pictures that they can get finer details like pricing and competitor information from tags on shelf in store. However having a picture that is of a larger set of the shelf is helpful for placement information as well. With GSC's software, the ability to keep the picture quality when accessing it from the web dashboard on the backend and then allowing to zoom in for the smaller details has been extremely helpful.
  • File management system - working with Emma, our representative, we came up with a way to best organize our missions in order to be able to access them in the future and not get bogged down by an overload of missions. This has been extremely helpful with having this set up from the get go. She really listened to what our needs were and helped us pinpoint the best method.
  • GSC Support has been phenomenal! We have only had a few glitches here and there when working with the software in the field but reps are able to call support and get help on the spot. They also offer great resources online to which we point our new reps to in order to get familiar with the GSC app and what it accomplishes. Also, when we come across a function or capability we want the app to be able to do for us but it is not currently functioning in that manner, Emma has worked with us diligently to try to find a way to "work around" it and still try to retrieve the data needed and/or put it on the INNOVATION list for the app builders to look and see if it's something that should be added in the future for use by all their clients.

Cons

  • 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.
  • Although coming up with a organization method when naming our missions from the get go was helpful. I wish there was a way to put the missions in folders once they are stopped or archived. This would help things to stay much cleaner as we keep building more and more missions.

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.
We used to use a product called "Stay in Front." This was a product that was used prior to my arrival at Alliance so I don't know a lot of the ins and outs regarding comparison. I have heard that Stay in Front had a much better auditing system, however retrieving pictures from the software was a little cumbersome and not as efficient as what GSC has set up for its users. The ability to pull data quickly and consistently for our clients is so important and one of the reasons why we made the switch. GSC is also often updating and upgrading the software to include more functionality and this is something we can really take hold of.

Return on Investment

  • Faster lead conversion
  • Increased employee efficiency
  • Better customer service
  • Our clients love the data we send them from GoSpotCheck. Most of them cannot have representatives across the country getting into these stores and it can be tough to provide hard takeaways other than emailing progress. This has made it streamlined and consistent.
  • We have also used it internally to track progress of our reps and make sure they are getting into stores on their route list in a timely manner. This data is used in annual and bonus performance reviews.
