Overall Satisfaction with Formstack

Our HR team implemented Formstack as an online application and resume submission. Our internal softball team used Formstack to recruit new members and decide on t-shirt designs. I implemented Formstack as customer satisfaction surveys for each of our 20+ products and services. I found that Formstack allowed me to easily create a user friendly survey which I could customize to match the look and feel of our software products. I was able to easily conduct basic analysis of data and also export to our own application for complex analysis.
  • Basic data analysis through automatically generated charts and graphs
  • Easy export to third party applications
  • Organization of forms and surveys in folders
  • Simple and easy form creation and customization
  • Organization of questions in lengthy surveys
  • Data validation
  • Better Customer Service
  • Increased Customer Communication
  • Faster Response Time to Customer Concerns
  • Reliable Data
  • SurveyMonkey,Google Forms
Formstack allows for multiple users and provides a cleaner UI with richer features and automatic data analysis. GoogleForms is a free alternative, but offers none of these features.
It's a clean and easy to use tool which can be applied to external projects but also internal projects.
Formstack is a great tool, but it offers a middle of the road solution. If you're looking for a simple and easy to use tool for creation of just a few simple forms, I would recommend SurveyMonkey or GoogleForms. If you're looking for complete customization, it's much better to create a custom webpage. Formstack is a paid tool allowing a fair amount of customization.
