SnapSurveys

I think it is very important to go through their training videos and user guides. Devote the time to learning it correctly from the beginning. In the long run you will enjoy it much more than plowing right into it and then trying to find out if you did it right. Also, while you are not required to buy the annual maintenance contract, I think if you are going to use the program, don't skimp, buy the annual maintenance contract. The free technical support is necessary, especially when you are up against deadlines.

SurveyMonkey

SurveyMonkey is great for when you need feedback from a large audience (our company is about 30 people) and you want feedback in a simple, quick, and easy way. It's very easy to use (you don't need to be super tech-savvy to understand how to use it) and you get answers immediately. We wouldn't use SurveyMonkey for something that requires more in-depth answers or when we want our employees' answers to remain confidential.

Pros

SnapSurveys

  • The training helped me to customize surveys for the different departments that the office of IR served.
  • Surveys were easy to create and gathering information was made easy because SnapsSurveys worked well with SPSS.
  • Once surveys were created I could scan them and have the results to my boss in less than an hour depending on the size of the survey group.
  • Snaps customer service reps were always willing to help.

SurveyMonkey

  • A strength for SurveyMonkey is that it is very user friendly. If one should become stuck in an area, the guides that are provided work nicely.
  • Allowing for a large number of participants to be mailed at once is a huge plus.
  • Being able to offer providers a link directly, being FB friendly, is a HUGE plus for our business.

Cons

SnapSurveys

  • Though the user interface is easy to navigate, it would be nice to see is design updated to something more aesthetically pleasing.
Casey Iannone | TrustRadius Reviewer

SurveyMonkey

  • The UI feels outdated. That in itself is not a bad thing - you know when you're filling a Survey Monkey, as the interface is easily recognisable. However, while all the other competitors and tools are moving with the times, Survey Monkey seems to be stuck in time. That, however, is the opposite of their app: their mobile development team definitely keeps their app up-to-date with the latest technologies. For instance, they updated their app to support the latest iPhone 6 and 6 Plus soon after the devices were released.
  • There's reporting available on the platform, although it feels quite basic. As an analyst I usually require enough features to "slice and dice" the data and work with it, and Survey Monkey doesn't help me all the way. That's not the end of the world however: the reporting available will be just enough for a user who just wants to know the top-level stats, and for advanced users the spreadsheet exports will be enough for you to carry on your reporting in your tool of choice.

The main reason we will renew is that it does the job, it supports our system, and we have budgeted for it so why change?

It's very budget friendly. I think we pay a little over $200 a year for our annual subscription and we pretty much use it on a monthly basis to get feedback from our members on meetings, conferences, trade shows and gathering contact info.

The interface it too packed with info and promotions. there isn't a clear distinction between the task-related components on the screen, and upgrade promotions, tips etc. much noise.

Alternatives Considered

SnapSurveys

It is an in between option. The options we evaluated were Qualtrics and SurveyGizmo. It's cheaper than Qualtrics and easier to design surveys than SurveyGizmo. Nonetheless it's not the worst option out there like SurveyMonkey.

SurveyMonkey

I have never used any other Survey Software/Program, because Survey Monkey has never let me down! If I were to need to find another program to use, I would most likely use the Internet and word of mouth and try to gather recommendations/referrals, but again, I have never felt it necessary to do so.

Return on Investment

SnapSurveys

  • Our aim is to create surveys that are easy to use from the respondents perspective. Snap helps us do that.
  • Snap allows us to be more creative and push the limits with surveys in a way that we could not do with paper surveys.
Naomi Tyler | TrustRadius Reviewer

SurveyMonkey

  • When I've used it in the past for college purposes it was a free tool to use so there was no loss.
  • I think it has positively impacted our ROI in the workplace because you get an understanding of what your audience is thinking while remaining confidential.
