Used to be so much better

Reviewed 5 years ago

We use SurveyGizmo for a variety of reasons including, student outcomes, understanding UX or building out new product needs, and Employee feedback.

Pros

I like that they are easier to use and more modern looking than a lot of survey products. They do have an easy-to-use platform and the search function is great. The Google Sheets API is wonderful. I love that you can flow data into sheets automatically. They are a good tool for someone who has tech background and can navigate APIs, coding, or calculating. I also had an excellent time at their training a few years back.

Cons

They removed the ability to chat as a support channel. It's awful now to have to ask questions. You have to call or email and email can take days to get a response. Additionally, they have started charging a LOT for their product and significantly reduced the number of licenses you get at base-level. The filter features look like you can add in several filter criteria (i.e, show me people who responded that are 20,21, 22 years old) as comma delineated but then the search results come up empty.

Usually Does What I Need & Customer Service Is Great

Reviewed 6 years ago

This takes care of my form and survey needs so easily. There a lot of logic rules and generated actions you can create in your forms too. You have to see how easy it is.

Pros

I haven't run into many things I can't do with SurveyGizmo that I need from my forms. There are a lot of question types, and you can make custom ones. The reports are great because most of the people I send the reports to need visuals, and SurveyGizmo does that so it's easier to understand the data. Of course it's up to you to provide insights about what that data means, but you have a great tool for gathering and reviewing the data in SurveyGizmo. Also, customer service is a team of rockstars. Very fun to troubleshoot with.

Cons

If you update a style template/sheet, your current forms using that style are NOT automatically updated. Since my organization has hundreds of forms and surveys, this is problematic. If you are in the situation where you want to redesign your forms, definitely use the styles, but be prepared to go into all of your forms/surveys and reapply the style to it, and remember to save afterward. It's annoying but not the worst, and it shouldn't happen often if you work closely with your brand leaders to make sure the design will be solid for a while.

I use it for quality reports, customers surveys and training

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

If you want to collect data and have control over it this is a great product. I use it to survey customers and trades. I also use it for tracking quality by making up several quality surveys. The data from them has been incredible and easy to collect. Also found out that I can use it for training and add questions and get test results, pass or fail.

Cons

The product used to be pretty affordable. Next year the prices are going up quite a bit but we still think it is worth it for the data we get from it.

Intuitive Survey Software with Great People Supporting It

Reviewed 10 years ago

Before choosing SurveyGizmo I had trials with 2 other competitors (from what I've gathered, larger industry players). With both I went as far as to create an actual survey and test--I spent real time with them. I wasn't as satisfied as I suspected I would be, so I then gave SurveyGizmo a try. Far more intuitive interface, simpler to learn, better functioning logic, cleaner design and a boatload of included features. When I had 1 hiccup early on and had to contact tech support--before I was a paying subscriber--the person took pains to solve my problem, test the solution AND call me back.

Pros

See the review, but they have a really nice survey-to-email functionality that works well for my team. Nice mobile interface.

Cons

Nothing yet.

Great For Surveys

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

Alchemer is very useful for any business that's looking to do marketing. You can give surveys to your customers and the results help you better serve their needs. This software is easy-to-use and gives you a quick way to create, manage, and analyze the results of a poll as well.

Cons

I wish there was a cheaper entry-level plan.

Pro Service and Customer Service

Reviewed 10 years ago

Survey Gizmo has been our vendor for three years. We started by using the survey functionality and progressed to creating quizzes and online practice tests. Customer service is extremely helpful and responds quickly. The Pro Service group has provided great service in helping develop new products. We have been very happy with the service provided to our company.

Pros

Fast response time. Easy to contact. Great knowledge of the product and capabilities. Easy to use website. Constantly improving product. Communicates well with customers especially when issues arise.

Cons

Recently updated product which resulted with some bugs in the system. This has been resolved.

I cannot recommend due to a poor CS experience.

Reviewed 5 years ago

I cannot in good conscience recommend this product. Yes it is cheaper than Qualtrics and nearly as capable... but our CS experience was lousy when the product broke. We were put on the backburner as our contract was not as lucrative for them.

Pros

They are HIPAA compliant. They have skip logic and you can collect a lot of responses. The layout it clean, but not as clean as survey monkey. You do have the option to preview what it would look like on multiple devices.

Cons

So I spent about 6 months working with them to figure out why our survey responses were not piping from SG to our Google Spreadsheets that they had advertised it could do, and was the primary reason for us rewarding them with our business. We spent 6 months back and forth and rarely could get the dev team interested in fixing the issue. It was never resolved and thus made the real time data collection and analytics advertisement frustrated. It was challenging to the point of needing to get the CEO of our company involved to get them to take action. Again, the issue was never resolved so we resorted to using Google Forms instead.

Using the simplest and most affordable methods to design and conduct surveys

Reviewed 2 years ago

Alchemer has helped us as an engineering consultancy firm by collecting a lot of data from specialists, and also by completing customer satisfaction surveys. It was easy to send out questionnaires and collect results.

Pros

Alchemer provides people, researchers, and institutions with integrated services that enable them create polls, send them out to target audiences, collect replies, and prepare results for study. Alchemer that automates all survey processes precisely and efficiently. Many of the features that I appreciate about Alchemer include: ease of use, pre-made templates, and the ability to produce surveys in minutes. Then he can send it to the target groups, collect replies, and extract the results to start the analytic processes. Alchemer's output is compatible with various statistical tools, making statistical work easier and less time consuming. Also, the subscription is simple and reasonable, and you can cancel and re-subscribe as needed.

Cons

There is nothing undesirable with Alchemer, all the tools you need will be clear to you, all you have to do is enter the survey questions, and Alchemer will then complete the rest of the work and prepare the data to start the analysis processes.

Nice stadistics and explanation graphics.

Reviewed 6 years ago

SurveyGizmo is a very well done software, which provides excellent long-term benefits, such as raising a company, and improving the quality of each service. Empresarilamente SurveyGizmo has benefited me a lot, since I have been able to completely change the prices of my services and each of the characteristics in my work, for a good of the client.

Pros

SurveyGizmo is very different from the other survey platforms, since this software has very good statistics of results at the end of each survey, this is the factor that complements it, every time a survey ends, the results are shown in graphs with its respective explanation.

Cons

I do not like the prices of SurveyGizmo, although this software is quite good and the functions it has, surpass any other platform, should not have such high prices, I would like more adapted and accessible prices .

Pros

SurveyGizmo has the characteristic of being able to edit a survey even when it has already been published on any website, this truth has worked enough to maintain a better statistic and maintain a much more accurate response rate, avoiding future mistakes.

Cons

I think that this is the most expensive platform in the market, it is one of the most expensive prices, and I think that they should lower prices a bit to maintain a better confidence with customers, they should offer more solid prices that actually offer The user can access a platform with very good features and excellent plans.

Great survey software - for pros and beginners

Reviewed 7 years ago

I've been using the software for the past year via a "legacy pro account". The software is extremely intuitive and easy to use. A lot of features and available question types. Surveys can be easily customized using CSS. Surveys are also mobile responsive. Large community, quickly handling Q&A. The product keeps developing and new features keep popping up, like R integration into reports, Conjoint analysis and more. Being a research professional, I find the software extremely handy and useful, at a very affordable price. Much better than other popular competitors I experienced.

Pros

Lots of features, Customizable, Great support.

Cons

Subscription price is starting to increase.

The affordable market research platform with all the bells and whistles

Reviewed 3 years ago

With Alchemer we are able to create professional - industry benchmarked surveys, get results easy and prepare data for analysis without going bankrupt. As we do not conduct surveys every day, Alchemer meets our needs equally well or even slightly better, yet at a way more affordable pricing point.

Pros

Alchemer - back when we started still Surveygizmo - offered what many big names in the industry have on offer, yet with a more affordable pricing and an interface that is easy to understand. The main benefits in our opinion: - pricing is clear, well structured and fair. We do not have to use it every single day, as quantitative research is an occasional need. But at that time, it is important to get...

Cons

The biggest disadvantage (at least at first, it has improved) is the limited bi-lingual functionality it offers. Translations are a good way to cope with this today, but it did not use to be as straightforward as it is today. Emails still do not offer that same flexibility concerning language handling, yet we have found it easy enough to sync up with Mailchimp so it does not really pose a problem.

The best web-based survey software for research ethics compliance

Reviewed 3 years ago

Pretty good. We're pushing it's limits in our next survey design and trying to make something really visually interactive. So far our surveys have been pretty traditional for social research and everything has worked well. We will see if it's possible to make some more fun surveys on Alchemer or not.

Pros

It's easy to use with all the modern features for all types of social surveys and the reports can do segmentation which saves a lot of offline data analysis work. A really important selling point for me was the company's privacy policy and how they make it easy to tailor their product to be used for research on sensitive topics. Uniquely, Alchemer makes it really easy to activate the "response encryption"...

Cons

It doesn't have the 100% smooth and premium feel that you'd expect. It's probably an 8/10 for design quality and has some quirks and occasional glitches. I've had issues with multi-language surveys and support for which Unicode/alphabet version for a language that the software supports, and separately problems with HTML script in the secondary language version of a survey being reset and erased spontaneously. Their customer support is really quick to respond on email however, and their help pages are really robust and easy to learn from.

SurveyGizmo Review

Reviewed 4 years ago

We create so many surveys and put them onto Survey Gizmo over the last 6+ years. To easily download results into useful and standard formats makes research move quickly and without a hitch.

Pros

The ability to set up the surveys in SurveyGizmo is very straightforward and logical. So easy, too. You do have to plan the survey well to ensure the questions are in a good order, etc, but that is with any software tool. The results delivered in multiple formats (.pdf and downloadable .csv) give the user tools to both view early results quickly and unidimensionally, and to manipulate the data actively.

Cons

There are several steps required to ensure survey questions are correctly added, and the software knows how to treat each question. However, this set of steps is great for learning and causing one to think about the logic of the survey and potential results.

Alchemer is highly functional and reasonably priced

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

Alchemer is one of the few survey software platforms that can do Conjoint, heat maps, timed questions, video dial tests, and cross-tabs. The price point for the "full access" version is about 60% less than Decipher or Qualtrics.

Cons

There are sometimes a couple of minor bugs. (E.g., on one study, my automated "thank you" notes to respondents worked for the first 10 or so completes, but after that, nobody was being sent a "thank you" message. Alchemer couldn't really explain how it happened, but I am at least thankful that subsequent studies have not encountered that problem again.)

Powerful survey tool

Reviewed 5 years ago

Overall, we like the tool and it helps streamline our data intake process. We are able to provide online training and post-training quiz and eval, then send out certificate accordingly via Surveygizmo. Features like that are important to us. Wish they would not keep increasing your price though and turn some of the features you'd been using for years into a different price tier.

Pros

We have been a client since 2013 and definitely watched SurveyGizmo grew significantly. New features are coming out from time to time and it is getting more and more powerful. It can be a great tool for all levels of users. There are simple easy to use features but there's also room available for advanced users to do custom scripts writing, etc to bring in more robotic and automatic survey flow. It also integrates really well with Salesforce and Google Sheets, etc.

Cons

Pricing! All these years we've been with SurveyGizmo we've gone through a huge price hike. They have different tiers of pricing/user licenses. As I said, they come up with new features from time to time, but watch out, those can cost more.

Good survey option but lacks more advanced options

Reviewed 2 years ago

Decent, if you want to create one off surveys and have the data live in a silo this product works. If you want to create a larger picture of data across multiple surveys it is very manual and error prone.

Pros

It is easy to create different types of questions and surveys. There are a variety of question types available. The survey creation process works well and is user friendly.

Cons

It is very difficult to get data from Alchemer to another place and have it work reliably. Also, aggregating data from more than one survey to gain a bigger picture is not possible without downloading it all in to Excel.

It's an online service housed on the internet. There have been times where the program was unavailable and our clients had to retry access over a period of time. However SurveyGizmo technicians would quickly to resolve the issues.

Pros

We offer a monthly newsletter where our customers click through the options to create their personal marketing piece. SurveyGizmo gives us the option of uploading rough draft pictures of the pages and options that make it extremely easy for our clients to choose their monthly options.

Professional survey builder for people who are serious about surveys

Reviewed 10 months ago

We use Alchemer for everything from fun staff surveys to national research projects. There are enough features to keep both the marketing and data analysis people happy. We are yet to really dive deep into all it has to offer so there is a big future-proof buffer for what we may want to embark on in the future.

Pros

Alchemer has a suite of features that make it appropriate for everything from basic one-question polls to in-depth conjoint studies. Once you're used to it, the survey builder is easy to use and understand, and the survey testing features are excellent.

Cons

There is a learning curve for those not used to more complicated platforms or less technically-minded people. Also, currently, you have to close surveys manually (can't make them auto-close at a set date).

Occorre studiare la logica di generazione del flow delle domande per padroneggiarlo appieno

Reviewed 3 years ago

Utilizzo Alchemer da quando ancora si chiamava SurveyGizmo, e devo dire che una volta superato lo scoglio dell'apprendimento della logica di costruzione del flusso delle domande, è possibile fare praticamente tutto. Una pecca secondo me è il fatto che i concorrenti realizzano sondaggi più accattivanti dal punto di vista mobile. Ma Alchemer ha dalla sua la robustezza della generazione dei report.

Pros

Dato che ho una conoscenza avanzata di JavaScript la piattaforma mi mette in gradi di perfezionare e personalizzare a mio piacimento le domande e il comportamento delle survey, offrendomi una potenza ancora maggiore di quella fornita dalle sue ampie funzionalità pronte all'uso. L'help desk è stato veloce e preciso in un paio di occasioni quando non sono stato in gradi di portare a termine un sondaggio particolarmente complicato. Le guide online sono ben fatte e complete.

Cons

Il processo di apprendimento è abbastanza lungo, ma una volta che si è incamerata la logica si riesce a fare praticamente qualsiasi cosa. Non ha un'interfaccia utente così diretta come i concorrenti. Ha anche una scheda Test che stima quanto tempo ci potrebbe volere per completare un sondaggio e quanta fatica dell'utente potrebbe impiegare, oltre a segnalare altri possibili problemi come domande e risposte eccessivamente lunghe. Sarebbe utile vedere questo tipo di avvisi comparire in tempo reale nel processo di costruzione delle domande

Potential product but ridiculously marred by bad support and some minor bugs.

Reviewed 3 years ago

Managed to deliver mid-level complexity commercial surveys, lack of some critical features (comparing with Qualtrics or similar products). Still some value for money despite lack of support. Started to regret and looking for other products in less than a month. Management not interested in customer success.

Pros

Able to quickly setup mid-level complexity commercial surveys and clean interface.

Cons

Minor bugs when exporting to Excel/SPSS (workaround needed). Customisation via JavaScript is quite complex, requiring good dev expertise. Slow performance from Asia Pacific (server located only in America/Europe). Most importantly, “urgent” email support will require 2-3 days to get a non-meaningful response. Telephone support are slightly better (about 30 minutes waiting time - if you can take Boyz II Men), but usually does not solve any issue (another 2-3 days email follow up).
