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.

Vision Critical

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

Vision Critical often requires you to dump the data to a statistical program. I hate that step. You waste time, and improve the chance of data being lost, or changed.

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.

Absolutely fantastic support team. Willing to help you online through vast collection of how-to guides and resources, online via chatbox, or over the phone. Even though we were in different time zones, they were always available. Very helpful and knowledgeable

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.

We also have Kinesis experience. Kinesis offers a better statistical package. It is not as slick, or as easy to use. However, the technical support is outstanding. I think Vision Critical competes on its presentation capabilities, and Kinesis competes on its statistical prowess
