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.

LimeSurvey

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.

Alternatives Considered

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.

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.

  • Everything in one place
