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.

Google Forms

Google Forms is very well suited for collecting data, whether it be for lesson assessments, gauging interest, or creating application materials for volunteer positions. Google Forms makes things like collecting T-shirt sizes easier and less stressful. It works well in a school and corporate environment. Google Forms is not suited for more in-depth research that requires a more interactive survey.

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.

Google Forms

  • Create a survey with lots of different kinds of questions from short answers, radio boxes, multiple-choice, long answers check-boxes, drop-down menus.
  • You can distribute these surveys to anyone.
  • Analyze the data in the Google Forms app itself or in a spreadsheet.
Michael Chow | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.

Google Forms

  • I think that there should be a way to add a name block in Google forms and have it not counted as a question
  • I think it would be great if we could see the question numbers when creating exams and test
  • Allow for easier sharing results of quizzes and test directly with colleagues

Google Forms is extremely easy to use and the tour that they offer is likely unneeded for most regular computer users. The drop downs are self-explanatory for the types of questions you'd like to ask, you can duplicate questions, and everything is saved in Google Drive. If a user is confused, then the help features and tour can provide guidance.

In the years I've used GoogleForms I've never ran into any issues with the reliability or availability. Google is a gigantic company with essentially limitless resources which makes it very easy to trust that I will continue to be able to enjoy the same reliability I've come to know and expect from GoogleForms

One of the things that comes as a benefit of the lack to create complex logic branching and truly custom design is that there isn't lot of room to bog down the software. GoogleForms has always loaded just as fast as my internet service and device would allow it. I'm not sure about front end integrations or integrations into the form itself, as I've never explored it, but on the backend, I've never had any issues with integrations channeling from GoogleForms from the GoogleForms's end of things.

Honestly - It's Google. There is a level of confidence I have with Google support and the only time I have used their support it was quick and easy. I sent my question over via email and had an answer within 24 hours. My problems [were] solved and I was able to get back to work.

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.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Google Forms

Google Forms has been much easier to use for our team since we already use Google for other services. The integration between their products works well for what we needed. SurveyMonkey is what we used in the past. They were easy to set up and send out to our team, however, exporting the information and sharing it wasn't as easy. We had to share through Dropbox and use excel. Google Forms keeps all of the information easily accessible and easy to share amongst our team.

GoogleForms lacks the ability for complex logic branching and the ability to truly design it in a custom manner. It's pretty obvious when you land on a GoogleForm that it is in fact a GoogleForm. This rating solely reflects the lack of flexibility which in turn makes it something that wouldn't usually be scaled.That being said, if needing to scale a simple solution, GoogleForms would be up for the job.

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.
Emily Sullivan | TrustRadius Reviewer

Google Forms

  • We use Google Forms a lot for keeping our company culture and making sure that everyone feels appreciated. We use it on a weekly basis and share people's responses on a weekly basis as well. This has been able to allow our company to keep our culture, even though our remote work due to the pandemic.
