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.

From my experience, I believe that Vision Critical offers the best software to manage an insights community. They are great to work with, and my opinion has only improved over time. However, that doesn't mean it is the best survey software overall. If someone simply needs to program and distribute surveys, this may or may not be the right solution. There are some other really great survey tools on the market that are competitively priced and offer very intuitive interfaces (like Qualtrics). If you are going to recruit people to answer surveys or provide feedback on an ongoing basis (re-contacting and engaging with the same people repeatedly), though, Vision Critical would be my #1 recommendation.

Pros

123FormBuilder (formerly 123ContactForm)

  • Ease of constructing a form with requisite inputs
  • Customizable look and feel options based on varying requirements in our case
  • Logic based branching & validation

  • Sparq is great as a single tool to manage relationships with some of our most avid fans. It allows us to survey them, send emails, and provide information about how their feedback is being used.
  • The survey programming platform has a little bit of a learning curve but is quite flexible and provides a good respondent experience.
  • Vision Critical has greatly improved the reporting capabilities of the tool. It is quite easy to quickly generate custom cross-tab reports.
  • The customer support, and the collaboration from our account team has been very good.

Cons

123FormBuilder (formerly 123ContactForm)

  • 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

  • I wish the product was more friendly to video surveys. It does support video, but there are restrictions on file size, and you can't maximize the size of the screen when watching a video.
  • I wish the product was more customizable. We have taken several measures to make changes to customize the product for our specific needs. It has turned out well, but it hasn't always been a smooth process.
  • I wish all of the reporting capabilities were rolled into one master reporting module. Within the tool, there are several different report areas. Each has its advantages, and like I said earlier, it is easy to generate quick reports. However, for more in-depth analysis, I sometimes want to use features from each of those report areas, and it would be very helpful if all the features I want were in one place.

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

There are better options out there. The only motivating factor to use this product is the lower cost and the value received from using it.

I think there is a ton of room to improve, in things as simple as aesthetics and other areas of logical flow when it comes to creating and then launching a survey, as well as providing descriptors for what each field is referencing. For instance, there are like 5 date fields to be filled out, but no button near them that says "this date will determine _________" and I am not about to go back into the training module, which was confusing enough to FIND, let alone work through to find just ONE answer.

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

123FormBuilder (formerly 123ContactForm)

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.

Vision Critical

Based on ease of use and having the most varied tools available, Vision Critical would be the best. Based on ability to higher response rates and increase engagement of respondents, Vision Critical would be the best. Based on ability to customize, Vision Critical falls short of advanced tools like Qualtrics, and completely customizable tools like paper surveys. The company chose VC because we weren't doing any really off-the-wall designs or surveys, and we wanted to be able to reach and engage with specific groups of consumers
