8 Best Free and Open Source Survey Tools

Surveys are one of the most effective tools for obtaining customer feedback. However, creating and distributing them can be very challenging.

Without the right software, you can spend days, even weeks, trying to create a perfect survey. And even then the quality and formatting of the survey may fall short of industry standards.
