8 alternatives to Survicate
If you’re interested in increasing sales, gaining a loyal customer base, and keeping customers happy, customer feedback can make or break your success.
Luckily, 83 percent of all consumers have completed at least one survey in the past 12 months, so they’re willing to provide their feedback when asked for it. But getting that feedback and analyzing the results can be challenging if you don’t have the right tools. That’s where customer feedback software like Survicate comes in — it’s designed specifically to help you tap into those insights.
While Survicate is a robust customer feedback tool, it’s certainly not your only option. There are many Survicate alternatives that enable you to do everything you can do with Survicate and more. In this article, we’ll look at what Survicate is and why you might need to research alternatives based on your business needs. We’ll also share the top eight Survicate alternatives below to get you started.
Survicate basics and the potential need for an alternative
Survicate is a customer feedback survey tool for small to midsize organizations. Companies can use it to run different types of feedback surveys at different points of the customer journey to learn more about customers’ perceptions of the business, its products and services, its customer service, and many other elements.
Survicate is easy to use and doesn’t require any coding, so you can set up a customized survey within minutes.
Survicate is an omni-channel solution, meaning you can send surveys to customers in different ways, such as within a software product, through a website, over email, or even through mobile. Survicate offers many one-click integrations, making it easy to connect the solution with other business tools like Slack, Salesforce, or Google Sheets.
Survicate is available in a free plan as well as three paid plans with additional features starting at $59 per month.
Survicate sounds like a pretty good option for businesses that want to learn customer feedback, so why even bother looking at other options?
Consider its monthly cost, overall feature set, and usability. According to some businesses, Survicate is too generic a solution and unable to meet the customer feedback needs of certain industries, like SaaS. Others find the monthly cost too high for small to midsize businesses, and some say there aren’t enough features for large or enterprise organizations.
If Survicate doesn’t work for your organization, don’t worry — you have options!
8 leading Survicate alternatives

Each survey comes with embed and share options, so you can place it on a website or send the link via email to survey respondents — or you can even use a QR code. You can also use Jotform in kiosk mode, such as on a company tablet, so multiple respondents can fill out a survey one after the other. You can even collect survey responses without an internet connection with Jotform Mobile Forms — the responses will be saved and sent once the device reconnects.
Jotform Tables makes it easy for you to analyze your survey data. It enables you to view, track, and manage each of the responses to better understand customer sentiments.

Formstack is an all-in-one workflow automation software that you can use as a customer survey feedback tool.
“I recommend Formstack as a good alternative to Survicate because it not only has survey capabilities, but also the ability to create automated workflows and forms,” says Yogesh Choudhary, cofounder and CEO of Finoit and FieldCircle.
“It’s fair to say that it goes beyond just surveys,” he says. “For example, if you’re organizing a conference and need a solution for both event registrations and feedback collection, Formstack offers dual functionality, which means you’ll need a single form for both. Plus, with automated workflows, once participants submit their forms, you can automatically send them event details. Another feature of Formstack that I like is that you can use conditional logic in surveys.”
Formstack offers a free trial and five types of paid plans; the Forms plan for data collection starts at $50 per month.

LimeSurvey is a good solution if you’re looking for quick and simple software without too many bells and whistles.
“My second recommendation is LimeSurvey because it’s open source and can be hosted by your own server,” says Choudhary. “This is gold because you have full control over data privacy and security, which is especially useful while dealing with sensitive information. Also, I love it for its multilingual features.”
