Frevvo is easy to use without javascript knowledge, but offers flexibility with someone who does

Easy to use. Fast web design

Pros

Even though it is very easy to use without knowledge of javascript, frevvo offers the flexibility to create really great forms if you have a good knowledge of coding in javascript. As an avid coder i was able to convert applications created in c# into frevvo forms. With the tools offered by frevvo, mainly the database connector and the ability to generate forms based upon sql queries i was able to create a form that queries past submissions and also then write to the database i had created. Then i was able to create another form that queries these submissions and generate an html table based upon the results. Within the html table i have several links to other frevvo forms which allow the user to view past submissions as well as a separate frevvo form to edit these submissions. Using the frevvo network file connector i was able to write attachments to a UNC path to be viewed later. In the edit form i used the same method to add more attachments to write to the same location to be able to overwrite or add new attachments without giving the user write permissions to the UNC path. I was also able to dynamically change edit permissions by created a separate form only available to managers that can change the status and assign editors. The assigned editors are saved in the database and when a user opens up the edit form it checks their id against the assigned editor and hides/shows the form based upon a match. Also the html table makes it easy to export data to csv

Cons

Since i am creating applications in frevvo the main con i have found is not being able retrieve attachments from the UNC path to be viewed when a user is viewing the data associated with these attachments

Fantastic, everything we needed in one platform.

Pros

The platform is very flexible and robust. The ability to integrate into other software platforms such as Active Directory, G Suite, and our H.R. software saves us countless hours of paperwork as well as simplifying record keeping. Frevvo allows us to develop both internal and external forms and control who has access by using network and Google accounts and permissions. Workflows are have been configured to eliminate time-consuming paper and email trails. By setting specific rules and mandatory fields time spent revising Purchase Orders and Employee OnBoarding Applications have been virtually eliminated. I am very accustomed to working with a vendor through a trial and they are at your "beck and call" for any issues and then impossible to contact after the deal has been signed and money spent. Not with Frevvo, customer support is fantastic and they are always quick to respond with an issue or question. They have an endless library of training resources that are updated constantly.
We are a small K-12 public school of fewer than 800 students and we are treated like a Fortune 500 company. So if you are serious about eliminating your paper documents, no matter the size of your company or organization, then Frevvo is the answer.

Cons

I only gave ease of use a 3 based on non-computer savvy users. Because none of our office workers were familiar rules-based workflows there is a learning curve. If you have the people who are trained for your organization start using this immediately after training you will have very little difficulty converting your current forms.

Extensive integration with Google (Sheets)

Pros

While having a bit of a learning curve, this form software is far more capable than any other SAAS based form tool.

The learning curve is a bit steep, but it's flexibility and ability to accomplish nearly anything in form or workflow environment is extremely good. Novice users can quickly setup forms, with data flowing to any number of integrations.

Full PDF form integrations make this an excellent tool for preparing as well as creating various documents for any business process.

Java script rules and even their new "rule builder" makes the creation of various rules to support conditional fields, calculations or form preconditions extremely flexible.

I've tried all the leading SAAS form tools and without exception, Frevvo is the most capable of the bunch.

Cons

While an excellent platform, I believe the UI in the form development space could use some updating. It has a bit of a dated look/feel in terms of icons/imagery.

No knowledge of Java will hurt you a bit...but to their credit the new "rule builder" helps immensely.

Versatile Product and Amazing Support

Used Daily for 1-5 months

First, the support is amazing. They have been incredibly helpful in getting me started with the system. They have a launch pack that builds in support to help you be successful out of the gate. Additionally, when I do submit an issue I have very quick replies from their support team. The answers almost always lead to a solution.

The business need I was solving was to move away from a Google Sheets budget development system. The "system" was really 57 duplicate spreadsheets -- one for each cost center -- that relied heavily on formulas. When an error in a formula was discovered we had to correct it 57 different times. We also had little ability to roll up or reference historical data to analyze budget trends.

Frevvo allowed us to consolidate our data into a centralized database. Additionally, the "formulas" were able to be centralized in either Frevvo or in the database. Thus, we now correct in one place and the fix is immediately available to all cost centers.

Overall, the value is significant in reducing budget errors but also allowing people to spend more time thinking about their needs and not if the numbers are right. Of course, it's saved IT close to 100 hours in bug fixes.

Pros

The product is versatile. It is intended as a form management system but I was able to hook it into an Azure SQL database and create a form-driven database application. In subsequent product releases for my application I'm looking forward to taking advantage of the workflow capabilities. Additionally, as I look across our organization, I can see many possibilities of varying complexity that Frevvo can handle to improve our processes. Frevvo also has built-in SSO connectors which makes security management easier and more consistent with our security goals.

Cons

My only complaint might be the lack of code libraries. I found on a few occasions I had the same code in several forms. It'd be nice to maintain the code in one place and have it link in to the forms.

Many common, and some more advanced form development tasks can be accomplished quickly.

Pros

I can produce good looking, highly functional forms for browser and mobile platforms quickly and easily. It also provides the ability to programmatically apply business logic and requirements as needed. Frevvo continues to develop and improve the product in a responsible time frame, and considers our needs and requests as future features are planned and developed. Support for easy MS AD authentication through an LDAP security provider. Able to use and integrate existing SQL data and reports. Staff are courteous and professional.

Cons

For developers, the form framework lacks built-in support for most form and field events, so basic state changes have to be handled manually when handling business logic. Custom connections to external data sources lack integrated data validation, reference handles, or data updating; all left up to the developer (who doesn't use the provided XML schema binding method) to implement manually. Limited script debugging features. Installation and upgrade process is manual and painstaking.
