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.

If you have a need to collect information in a structured form from a group of people, it's the best tool around. This can be related to external market research or internal polls or anything in-between.I can't think of a scenario where it wouldn't serve well or a better tool exists.

Pros

  • We could build html forms with little or no html experience. This is empowering.
  • We were notified right away when someone completed a form. This was helpful with scheduling workshops, among other things.
  • The reporting feature was great, as it was easy for administrators to see results at a glance.

  • First and foremost, the ability to program the survey myself reduces costs significantly compared to what we would pay a programmer. It also allows us to edit and make the inevitable last minute changes that always tend to occur.
  • The ability to tailor the survey to meet our or our clients' specifications leads to better responses. To illustrate, I am able to incorporate my clients color schemes and logos for their customer database surveys which leads to greater trust in the survey and incrementally more completed surveys. When it comes to new development ideas, Qualtrics allows me to use video and graphics to best describe and portray a potential development idea thereby resulting in better, more educated responses. This ability allowed me to run a college survey for a $450 million stadium redevelopment that was sent to over 250,000 alumni and resulted in 25,000 completed responses.
  • The previous point leads to my greatest point which is the ability to generate easy reports and disseminate the data through cross tabs. In the past I had used SPSS, which I found less than user friendly. Being able to cross tabulate and create instant visuals through Qualtrics reporting not only saves me an astounding amount of time, but also eliminates the stress that other programs have caused in the past.
  • I use their panels quite often when running our national and regional surveys for random samples of people. Their panels team is always very helpful, knowledgeable and efficient. After I program my surveys, they take over and run the survey to achieve the appropriate amount of responses based on my quotas. The process is effortless and much easier than when we hired another company to run our regional and national surveys. Additionally they have several panel houses from which they can get a random sample which reduces the cost considerably.

At this time Qualtrics is meeting our needs. We have very positive feedback from our users. The support from the company is excellent both from an administrative perspective and the user perspective. The fact that we were able to get them to work with us on the custom URL has been tremendous. It was a key component for our institutional research group to continue to use Qualtrics. They deliver.

There are many things which go wrong when survey is live, if you change some setting in the survey...it automatically gets reflected in the Live link. One of our survey was live and setting got changed to "Do not record personal information and remove associate panel information" and we lost close to 200 participants background information ....the issue is still under investigation as to how/who made this change, as only I had the access to the survey and I am 100% confident I didn't change anything in the survey once it went Live.When I contacted support if they have any information on who made the change on the survey, they mentioned they don't keep this information on their server. I was Shocked, one can go and change anything in the active survey and no information is recorded who made that change on the server.God Save our Active surveys on Qualtrics :(

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

I still use it. It does everything you need an online survey to do. From heat mapping to complex skip logic and display logic. I use it weekly and it never disappoints

Alternatives Considered

I think functionality between 123FormBuilder and other options is quite similar, in most cases. Where I found 123FormBuilder to be a significant winner was with regard to ease of use, and overall UX. Robust, simple, accessible, effective, and customizable are the keywords I'd highlight that helped me choose 123FormBuilder with complete confidence. That's not to say the other options will fail you, but you surely can't go wrong with 123FormBuilder.
