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.

For a cost-effective online survey solution, LimeSurvey is excellent. While it cannot compete with high-end, expensive software like Qualtrics, it does a great job.

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.

LimeSurvey

  • Ease of use.
  • Customizable.

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.

  • Limited email handling.
  • Some customizations are difficult.

The feature sets, agility, and flexibility remain approachable and incredibly powerful. Support is also very responsive and top notch. Overall, with a bit of basic foundational skills, there are seemingly an unlimited number of use cases for which Alchemer can be leveraged.

Every once in awhile, it is necessary to solicit support. On those occasions, support is extremely responsive and supportive. It has been my experience that [if] they can't walk you through the desired endpoint, they will take a look at your build and remedy for you.

Alternatives Considered

Alchemer (formerly SurveyGizmo)

I liked the interface for SurveyGizmo much more than Qualtrics. You knew a question was adjusted in SurveyGizmo and wouldn't change, but with Qualtric's interface, you had to refresh the account several times sometimes to ensure the question would work appropriately. Also, with SG, there were a lot of easier capabilities, such as changing missing values in bulk, required questions in bulk, etc.
Rebecca Lynn Kouroupis | TrustRadius Reviewer

LimeSurvey

LimeSurvey was much cheaper than Qualtrics but certainly less powerful. From a survey standpoint, it has more capabilities than SurveyMonkey and Zoho. LimeSurvey has no reporting or analytic capabilities.

Return on Investment

Alchemer (formerly SurveyGizmo)

  • It has always delivered on all our business objectives. I think that the reason why it's a bit [more] expensive than other providers.
  • It has helped us to optimize resources especially man hours involved in survey design.
  • It has been a valuable partner in almost all [of] our uses.

LimeSurvey

  • LimeSurvey costs are extremely low.
  • Some limitations have restricted our potential business.
