Solid, dependable and powerful

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: I have built a fully comprehensive digital paperwork system with Forms on Fire for a client. It has transformed their business, automating many manual tasks and saving dozens of hours every month ongoing. The return on investment is off the charts. I also love the fact that the support is so responsive and helpful, even when it's a complex question I rarely need to explain more than once, and answers are timely and helpful, often going the extra mile.

Pros:

The best thing about Forms on Fire is the flexibility. It's a blank canvas, you can create any type of form you require. With a little bit of technical knowledge it can be made extremely powerful. I appreciate the fact that it isn't aimed at consumers, as other form builder tools are, so it goes straight to the powerful functions needed in a business environment.

Cons:

The built in data dashboards and analytics are adequate but not amazing. However these can be bypassed by exporting data to another platform using the integrations or API, and custom dashboards and reporting can be built there.

Geoff, we are amazed at what you built, it's a great example of going way beyond forms to a fully data-driven application. Thanks for the kind words!

Easiest to Implement!

5.0 5 years ago

Comments: Very pleased with the ease of developing our forms, distributing, updating, and collecting the uploaded data . The drag and drop interface for forms is outstanding and the help files make it easy to develop any workflow you can imagine, very powerful!

Pros:

Our team especially liked the openness of the software programming interface, the associated help files, and the superb customer support whenever we had a question. We knew going in that we would have some "special tasks" we would need to implement and Forms On Fire appeared to have the best programming system in place to easily make that happen using our own personnel and not requiring the software company to handle everything at additional cost. The system is so easy it just doesn't require that much support, but if you need it, they are there to help!

Cons:

I think the website interface could use a few minor improvements like having data view columns maintain their positions between sessions or refreshes, and perhaps a little more development on the dashboard, although we'll probably develop our own that most of the vendors for this type of software simply don't offer.

Alternatives Considered: Certainty Software, SafetyCulture, GoFormz, FastField, TrueContext, PaperLess and Jolt

Reasons for Switching to Forms On Fire: We chose Forms On Fire over the competition based on the following: 1- Best Responses to our RFP documentation 2- Wide number of platforms the software will run on 3- Ease of developing the required forms and their ongoing maintenance as our products evolve 4- Most open development environment and help system in place allows us to do what we want, when we want, and not have to have the software vendor do it for us, unless we need them to! 5- Price is one of the best out there and provides excellent value per dollar

Data collection made easy

5.0 last month New

Comments: I have been using Forms on Fire for almost 7 years in my job at an international engineering firm and cannot speak highly enough of this product! I have designed forms from basic single-page fill-in-the-blank type forms to incredibly complicated multi-page forms using pre-populated repeating tables, subforms, and even approval steps. I am not a coder but have been able to design forms that do everything my clients have asked, including making stepwise decision-making fields. Some of our field techs have been resistant to using digital forms but most of them report back that they love how easy-to-use the forms are and they don’t ever want to go back to paper. The project managers are equally enthusiastic about the data they receive since they no longer have to decipher handwriting or deal with entries that do not conform to their requirements. My company’s firewall does not allow direct posting to SQL so we had to use the API and go through the Sync connector. Forms on Fire support was very helpful through this process, working with our IT department to get everything set up correctly. In fact, the support team has always been wonderful, responding quickly with suggestions or work-arounds whenever I have gotten stuck on a complicated solution. If you need to collect data in any remote setting, you can not go wrong with Forms on Fire.

Pros:

It's easy to learn and easy to use. You can make edits without interrupting field team. You can get your data in practically any way you need it. The data is clean and consistent.

Cons:

My only complaint is that I can't use the repeating table with a repeating table with the Sync SQL connector - I have many projects that could use this. I do have a work-around (subforms) so I can deal with it but sure would be nice!

Thank you so much for your detailed and positive review! We're thrilled to hear about your successful experience with Forms on Fire over the past 7 years and how our platform has been instrumental in your projects at the international engineering firm. Regarding your feedback about the limitation with the Sync SQL connector and repeating tables, we appreciate you bringing this to our attention. We're excited to let you know that integrating repeating tables with the SQL connector is currently in development and will be included in a future update. We believe this enhancement will make your projects even more streamlined and efficient. Thank you again for your support and for being such a valued member of the Forms on Fire community. We look forward to continuing to serve your data collection needs with even more functionality!

Smooth interface but technical issues frequently come up

3.0 4 years ago

Pros:

The software is easy to use, clean interface, and alerts me when I am missing required information

Cons:

There are frequent problems whenever we try to make an update, things don’t seem to work how we expected them to. Also the documents this platform generates seem to be missing items and we can’t figure out how to fix this.

I almost don't want more people to know about it because I look so smart for using it.

5.0 4 months ago

Comments: Without a hint of exaggeration, this may be the smartest move I've made in my 25-year career. I look like a genius for using it and every team I've introduced it to loves it. We are able to do incredible things as an organization we wouldn't be able to do without FOF. This is a hill I will die on. It's the most important product in our tech stack.

Pros:

Customizable through and through. It may as well be an entirely customizable, in-house development we have so much control over it.

Cons:

I don't know, that it's not free? Lol. Seriously, this thing is amazing and the team at FOF is even better to work with, not that we need them much it's so easy to use.

Alternatives Considered: Happy Asset

Reasons for Switching to Forms On Fire: Ease of customization, deployment, and wide range of applications we can use it for.
