Finding the right survey solution for your enterprise is as much about knowing what you want to do with surveys as understanding how to navigate your internal approval processes.
Most survey solutions will help you with a simple poll of how people feel or help you build a form to find out what people want to eat. But when it comes to building complex surveys for market research, customer experience, employee experience, or more, you need a solution that is more business software than consumer.
