123FormBuilder (formerly 123ContactForm)

I believe when creating forms larger in scale, 123contactform would be well suited in terms of flexibility. It allows a creator that's familiar with HTML and inline CSS to manipulate the form to their will, providing them the desired outcome.

OpinionLab

OpinionLab is best suited where you want unrestrained, unbiased feedback and not complicated surveys. It means you get less structured information, but you DO get information you hadn't anticipated that leads you in new directions. Most useful when you can tie it to other analytical systems such as Tealeaf, ClickTale, Adobe Analytics, etc.

Pros

  • 123ContactForm makes creating online forms and surveys a breeze. It comes with a free form-builder that you can even connect to other online platforms like MailChimp, Salesforce, and more. Data collection is automated through its robust features.
  • 123ContactForm also offers numerous payment processes that you can integrate with an online form without having to resort to a shopping cart function.
  • The program comes with a built-in analytics so that you can easily track online form performance and interpret data through graphical reports and efficient data mining.
  • Easily deployed, using either standard templates or custom installs.
  • Easy reporting interface, and good delivery options for automated reports.
  • Extendable methods for extracting real-time voice of the customer comments during product launches, releases or other critical timeframes.

Cons

  • I found no drawbacks to using 123ContactForm.
  • Does simple very well, but complicated not as well. It is NOT a survey system.
  • Some of the reports are still a bit old for display, but new features have been released recently giving more options.
  • Standard deployment templates may be a bit limited for customization, or you need to go to fully customized and do the development yourself.

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

The cost versus product is a good value, so it all depends on the customer's needs/wants, and of course, budget

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

I have used several contact form plugins for WordPress, they are superior to 123ContactForm in that they provide more CRM options, but in terms of ease of installation and ease of use 123ContactForm is a better option for non-development website builders, or site owners that might not be as tech-savy.
OpinionLab is one of the few out there that does two things very well in it's space: 1. Customer Feedback - just feedback, not surveys. Feedback is free text without more than one or two structured questions. Most survey systems offer too many options, and their reporting is made for structured data analysis not analysis of the open text fields. Some of the other tools viewed did not have the best features for medium or large scale deployment, from an analysis perspective, real-time data extract and download, or customization for branding.

Return on Investment

  • Improved contact information updates
  • Improved reporting
  • Improved workshop attendance communications
  • OpinionLab has provided very valuable insights, as a method of detection of site issues or customer struggle, where we can tie it to a customer experience in Tealeaf or Clicktale and then quantify the issue.
  • Feedback in customer service applications has also helped us improve our call center agent's experience by allowing them to report application issues on a system that didn't have as much analyst or product development priority, and reduce our average handle time.
