Hi, we are a software house and we want to know if there is a way to query and collect form data from an external Windows standalone software. A lots of our customers use JotForm and they would integrate form data collected with JotForm, inside our softwares.
Is there a way to query and collect data? (we can import csv, xls or some other file, or we can use services or other query tools to collect data)

Yes, you can integrate your system to your JotForm account using our API. You can check our API documentation here: http://api.jotform.com/
You can also check the other integrations that we have that may help you further: https://apps.jotform.com/
Please note that the API can do a lot of things like fetching submission data, updating forms, making a direct submission, etc... But this involves directly using the API key of the JotForm account involved.
If you simply want the submission data to be sent instantaneously on a server or database after the user clicks the submit button, then you can use WebHooks or you can use POST method to send data on a PHP script and store it on a database. Here are some additional guides related to that:
I hope that helps.
