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.

SnapSurveys

I think it is very important to go through their training videos and user guides. Devote the time to learning it correctly from the beginning. In the long run you will enjoy it much more than plowing right into it and then trying to find out if you did it right. Also, while you are not required to buy the annual maintenance contract, I think if you are going to use the program, don't skimp, buy the annual maintenance contract. The free technical support is necessary, especially when you are up against deadlines.

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
  • The training helped me to customize surveys for the different departments that the office of IR served.
  • Surveys were easy to create and gathering information was made easy because SnapsSurveys worked well with SPSS.
  • Once surveys were created I could scan them and have the results to my boss in less than an hour depending on the size of the survey group.
  • Snaps customer service reps were always willing to help.

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
  • Free online basic training.
  • FAQ section for the beginners.
  • SNAPs wizard to help make the surveys.

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 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 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.
Survey Monkey is great but it's really on the "Quick and Dirty" side of things. Due to shortage of staff time and expertise, we go with Survey Monkey whenever possible. But you can't beat Snap for the more robust, complicated stuff.We use Epi Info for some projects that are specific to collection of information on diseases and injuries. It's a great tool that some of our clients are familiar with and they just came out with a web-based platform.
