Reasons To Choose Fynzo Survey over Google Forms :
Google Forms may be one of the most popular survey tools but it falls back in security, advanced skip logic features, and doesn’t accept in-form payments. Its outlook looks unprofessional. So it may be okay for school students but organizations and professionals need a lot more from surveys.
Yes, Google Forms is free, but does it provide the level of sophistication and customization your organization’s surveys should possess? The answer we have received through multiple surveys is a “no”. So it may be tough to give up the idea of a free survey creator but at a minimal cost you can get so much more out of your surveys, you will be surprised to find out.
