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.

Zoho
Zoho Forms is well suited for anyone wanting to track items from a specific event or feedback at the conclusion of an event. It is also well suited to track responses. Zoho Forms is less suited for the scenarios where official approval is required because the forms are meant for a single user, and not to be filled out by one person, and then forwarded to another to document the approval. It would also not be good to replace an excel or word document to submit to another department requesting a part number for a new product because again once the form is submitted there is not a way for the second party to 'Update' the existing form and add the part number assigned by the second party.

So far we have not faced any issue while using the software but our customer journey has been breathtaking so far, which obviously i am expecting, should be the case of the support of Zoho Forms as well. However we have explored their support channels; you can easily find the contact us form in the profile slider and there are other resources available with a single click like Help Menu, What's New Menu, Blogs and Forums. However i could not find any live chat or support with the Free version.

Alternatives Considered
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.

Zoho
I chose this software because it is very well integrated with other Zoho products which I am using. Apart from this it has mobile applications also which allows me to use this software from my mobile devices when I am traveling for work. Its mail merge feature is also one of the important reason to choose this software.
