Modern Forms Service Shines!

2017-02-10

We have been testing Forms on Fire for a week, with the intent to purchase for a large project.

Pros

Intuitive design interface and ability to use data sources across multiple forms.

Cons

Tough question, but perhaps the lack of the ability to connect directly to an SQL database (without the API) or publish fields directly to SharePoint.

Insane levels of power and customization at an affordable price

2018-04-13

FoF allowed us to create custom inspection forms to match exactly what we needed without any superfluous junk that would just get in the way.

Pros

It allows anyone to customize inspection forms for literally any industry and/or location at an affordable price.

Cons

The interface to make your own forms isn't 100% intuitive, though the amount of time needed to learn is very short and you can be up and running in less than an hour.

Christopher Palma

Our experience with forms on fire has been nothing but positive right from the start.

2017-08-24

We chose to move to electronic forms because our tech lost the occasional work order and this incurs costs for our company and we wanted to eliminate losses from that department.

Pros

Price: We're a small business so we didn't want to spend huge amounts of money on this solution and the folks at forms on fire have been able to give us everything we wanted at a very fair price.

Cons

As far as I'm concerned there are no cons, you could argue that the software has a bit of a learning curve but I would argue back that any powerful ( feature packed) software has a steep learning curve.

Forms on Fire Amazing

2017-04-03

The ability to design, create and import data in different formats to include software support.

Pros

I am not always in the field so when I am on the desktop (Windows) I love that I can open the software edit forms and preview what it will look like without having to use my tablet.

Cons

I would like to see more flexibility with the logo design, specifically I could not enlarge the logo.

Changes the game for mobile data collection!

2016-12-06

FOF allowed us to create easy-to-use custom forms which streamlined our process and replaced paper entirely.

Pros

The customization is really the powerful feature here - you can get exactly what you want, and nothing you don't.

Cons

Because the customization is so complete, it does take a little while to learn how to use it to its fullest.

Fun to use, so robust for small businesses looking for efficiency

2018-05-25

Ability to gather info from guys in the field and turn it into nice-looking reports for customers and actionable knowledge for the office.

Pros

When my business needed a form built and I was tired of waiting for programmers to build stuff for us that cost a lot of money and our time trying to explain to them what we needed, then wasn't quite right because they still don't really understand our business, I decided to build one myself.

Cons

They have a knowledge base that is great for getting started, but often doesn't show enough examples for me to quickly understand how to make their more advanced features work. And sometimes they go ahead and release new features (yay!) without fully debugging or writing up how to use or the bugs they've already found and are working on.

Very versatile product. Can be configured to meet even very specific business needs.

2016-12-10

We did a side-by-side comparison with Prontoforms before settling on Forms On Fire.

Pros

Makes customization accessible to the masses, therefore reducing overall cost.

Cons

The software has amazing capabilities, but there doesn't seem to be a complete tutorial to guide you through a lot of the stuff I can't do. There are a number of basic video tutorials available but if you want to do anything beyond the most basic, there is a fairly steep learning curve.
