Alchemer, formerly SurveyGizmo

SurveyGizmo works extremely well as a platform for receiving survey responses. As a survey/business analytics tool, the platform offers extensive options for customization and deployment of professional questionnaires. Our team has found SurveyGizmo to be extremely well suited for the modern administrative employee. Surveys are relatively easy to create, deploy, and manage responses in real time. Furthermore, monitoring / managing the results enables businesses to provide any necessary follow-up based on key results. Our team spends quite a bit of time testing out survey tools and have found SurveyGizmo to be a solid option for the needs of our team. Furthermore, we have recommended the platform to other departments within our organization that have uniquely different skillsets from our own. Overall, we see SurveyGizmo as a tool that can be used across most organizational teams if implemented with the specific user-experience in mind.

Cognito Forms

I would definitely recommend Cognito Forms to any colleague or business. I think it has the excellent capability of tracking things, simplifying a process, having a set process. Have everyone on board using the same forms or ways of transmitting information to one another. We will continue to use and find additional ways to utilized Cognito Forms.

Pros

Alchemer, formerly SurveyGizmo

  • Attaching images! Survey Gizmo makes attaching images from surveys a breeze. I've tried other popular survey tools and it can be difficult for users to submit images as part of their survey (e.g. some only allow 1 picture per question, whereas Survey Gizmo allows a range for you to select from)
  • Easy and intuitive survey building.
  • Pretty good out-of-the-box survey analysis.

Cognito Forms

  • Effective data management.
  • Extensive user accessibility in & out of house.

Cons

Alchemer, formerly SurveyGizmo

  • Duplicate protection needs improvement. Anyone who would like to start a survey and finish at a later time is unable to which limits total survey responses.
  • Password protection option can be a challenge when uploading spreadsheets with pre-populated data.
  • Logic and piping options for questions can be difficult when designing more complicated and in-depth surveys, which requires a lot of testing.
  • Follow-up surveys do not provide an option for survey takers to review their previous survey responses, which may provide less accurate data when comparing individuals across multiple surveys.
  • Would like the option to link surveys together in order to more easily track data from individuals across multiple surveys and save previous survey data.

Alternatives Considered

Alchemer, formerly SurveyGizmo

Best alternative and value for the cost EASILY. AND it performs similar or more functions than that of Qualtrics. Survey Monkey is just terrible.

Cognito Forms

I have also used Docu-sign a bit for similar data entry procedures when submitting applicants for financing and within our CRM. While Docu-sign works excellent, it is not as efficient as Cognito Forms and can prolong daily tasks creating some disconnect. Docu-sign is more useful for other tasks while Cognito Forms is pretty self-explanatory with its reports, data entry tasks, application submissions, and notification settings.

Return on Investment

Alchemer, formerly SurveyGizmo

  • SG has allowed us to provide a real-time and convenient tool for our partners to send data to us.
  • SG has a lot of powerful features that, to us, are more than a survey tool. We found it helpful in many scenarios, providing interesting quizzes, screening job applicants or screening if people are eligible for our programs. It actually provides some automation in those processes.
  • You can use the URL variable to track our outreach results and help determine which outreach method works better so we can make adjustment accordingly.

Cognito Forms

  • A simplified process
  • Everything in one place
  • All associates using the same system.
