What else makes frevvo different?

Built-in workflow management

From workflow wizards to dozens of pre-built templates to intuitive designers, we offer powerful yet easy-to-create workflows as a core capability. You can easily design and deploy processes with complex electronic forms and handle real-world business situations like dynamic approval chains.

Which one intuitively looks like a workflow?

Formstack only offers workflow as a (very) basic add-on. Their main product and focus is on their form designer – there's no graphical workflow designer. As a result, creating a workflow is convoluted and non-intuitive. Approval-routing capabilities are minimal. In short, workflow capabilities are extremely limited.

Simple forms creation for complex needs

Real-world business forms are complicated. With frevvo’s drag-and-drop designer, easily create the exact forms you need – no matter how complex. From sophisticated layouts to powerful validation to auto-populating large sections, our form designer will let you meet every business requirement. Couple that with our Visual Rule Builder and you can create amazingly dynamic forms without writing a single line of code.

Easily meet the most complex business requirements

Formstack has far more limited forms capabilities. Data validation is simplistic at best, there's no way to auto-populate fields, and dynamic behavior is basic. Needless to say, there's no intuitive visual builder.

If your business requirements include powerful forms, there's no comparison to frevvo.

Enterprise-quality capabilities that are ridiculously easy to use

Beyond forms and workflows, many customers such as universities, government organizations, and businesses have other complex requirements.

Things like ADA/WCAG compliance for accessibility, localization for globally deployed processes that work in any language, and visual PDF generation for electronically signed documents.

With Formstack, some capabilities like custom PDF generation or automatic audit trails are simply not available. Other features require an upgrade to more expensive plans.

Even though frevvo can handle complex requirements, it’s still simple to use. All at reasonable cost and with no I.T. or coding required.

Native integrations

Unless you're really small or new, most organizations use SQL databases and other business systems to conduct their day to day operations. They also store documents in electronic document management (EDM) systems. With frevvo's wizard-based native connectors, you can create digital workflows that integrate with business data and automatically save documents to EDM systems. All without doing any coding.

Using our built-in integration with XML and XML schema, customers create incredibly dynamic and sophisticated forms and workflows without having to write a single line of code.

Can your form designer do that without complex coding?

Formstack has several native integrations, but not with common corporate systems like SQL databases or EDM systems. Integration with internal data might use something like Zapier. That's a security nightmare for enterprise I.T., since it's yet another third-party, cloud-based app that can access corporate data.

Since frevvo's connectors can be deployed in the cloud, in your DMZ, or behind your firewall, you can be assured of the security of your critical information.

Flexible deployment models

Many customers deal with particularly sensitive data or regulatory environments that do not permit cloud deployment. Our customers include government entities like the Australian Financial Security Authority and universities like Princeton who simply can't afford to expose their processes to potential hackers.

Formstack is only available in the cloud. While cloud solutions, including frevvo, are investing in security and reliability, they are simply not feasible for many enterprises.

With frevvo, there's no need to choose. We offer exactly the same software and the same set of features in both cloud and on-premise deployments. Choose the version that best suits your requirements.

Simple pricing

We offer straightforward pricing and tremendous value for the money. There are no confusing tiers with different levels of functionality. Pricing scales up with usage and all features are available at all price points. It's that simple.

Formstack's different plans have different levels of functionality – and are somewhat confusing. Common business requirements like single sign on (SSO) require an upgrade to an Enterprise plan, so you’re likely to find that Formstack's costs escalate rapidly as you need additional, basic features.

Where are we still improving?

The fact is that no platform is perfect. We use extensive data and customer feedback to prioritize upcoming improvements.

While frevvo is already very simple and intuitive, we're always working to make it even easier with significant upcoming UI enhancements. Our goal is "from free trial to working prototype in 15 minutes or less".

In response to customer feedback, we expect to release a powerful reporting engine this year. The best part is that you'll be able to use frevvo's existing, familiar form designer with new graphics controls to design beautiful reports. Nothing new to learn.

We're also working on some advanced features like parallel workflows and versioning so you can have multiple versions of the same workflow running at the same time.
