Ask it Online: Surveys beefed up with Ajax

Category: Showcase

AskItOnline is the first product from Triexa, and offers a simple to use Ajax interface to create, edit, and take surveys online.

The interface allows you to drag and drop build your survey. The survey is fully WYSIWYG so you can mouseover any element and change it on the fly.

There are nice quick keys that let you jump around between questions, properties, and options (ASIDE: I talked about the need for help with shortcut keys in my entry Browser Shortcut Key Browser).

I’ve noticed a number of articles on Ajaxian recently which don’t have “demo” links or sample account info to test out; personally, that’s part of what has made this site attractive, because it’s been easy to read about (and subsequently play with) neat new sites and services coming out. Please bring back more demo links/demo account info, or encourage submitters to include them! :)

It’s all nice…
In fact most of the features appear to have been copied from my product ( wich already has a public beta for a few weeks.
Strangely, one my most active users is from Thornhill, Canada…. the same place where this product cames from…

It’s nice,
In fact most of it seems copied from my own product questionform, that has a public beta for a couple of weeks now…
Interesting fact: my most active user is located in Thornhill, Canada, the home place of this product.

Ok Dan that was kind of wierd..

Anyway it really DOES seem to be a copy of questionform.. a blatent rip off! wow.

Comment by Alexei — November 25, 2006

Alexei – we did not rip off anyone. In developing AskItOnline, we took concepts from 15+ websites and, in essence, mashed them all together. AskItOnline will hopefully become the #1 online survey software, and to do that one must include functionality similar to where others have succeeded, and ignore or improve on where they may have failed.

The survey editor is very similar to QuestionForm – it’s also very similar to WuFoo and at least 10 other online applications I can think of. We aim to make the interface as intuitive as possible, so there is no saying that how the survey editor looks or functions right now is final.

Dan – That’s hitting below the belt!

Oh, get a sense of humor.

Comment by Dan — November 28, 2006

Well, the real issue is that technology will always be cloned and imitated. So can askitonline really do better customer service than the other online survey software companies (of which there are really more like 40 of them out there and only a few good corporate tools). Regardless of how good of a programmer you are, do you think you are actually capable of understanding the needs of corporations? What you are really battling is corporate culture for integrating a survey software tool. Good Luck, I’m curious to see how much better askitonline will be than many of the others out there!
