Likelihood to Recommend

123FormBuilder (formerly 123ContactForm)

In our case we used it in a range of varying scenarios across internal functions as well as for external clients. It is fairly well featured and suited for use across multiple use cases. Albeit we ended up not using the pay features because it was an occasional requirement for us, I think one of the areas where it would be well suited would be processes requiring online payments based on variable logic. The pricing structure ironically makes it less suited for the same scenario for users with limited requirements.

I would recommend it for VERY simple projects. For anything that requires extensive programming, it's probably better to have a professional survey programmer develop the code rather than the research manager or director. Otherwise, it's an easy to use and intuitive program. It's also a good option if pricing is a concern.

Pros

  • Ease of constructing a form with requisite inputs
  • Customizable look and feel options based on varying requirements in our case
  • Logic based branching & validation
  • Very easy to use
  • Doesn't take much experience to master -- user friendly out of the box
  • Visually appealing, looks good
  • A fair amount of customization possible

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
  • Doesn't allow for the level of customization required for a lot of projects
  • Can be a little too simple, not complex enough
  • Can tend to be a little buggy at times -- new features need to be more thoroughly vetted

Developed more permanent forms for my website that allow for data capture and analysis

It's a fine product, but it's also a very competitive field, so it wouldn't take much to knock QuestionPro from top tier status. I would like to see more functionality in all programs, so whichever program does that first is likely to get my money in the next round of budgeting.

They offer email, chat, and phone support. I have used the chat support several times. Response time was fast, but the rep did not always have the answer. Inquiries are answered quickly and thoroughly.

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

Try every feature and test take your surveys multiple times, running through different scenarios.

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.
QuestionPro is better or on par with these programs. I would say that it's better than SurveyMonkey and Zoomerang, as it's more customizable and professional "looking". It's on par with Qualtrics as it has a lot of the same functionality and customizability. The relative strength of QuestionPro is that it's easier to use out of the box compared to Qualtrics.
