As an Internet-based hosted offering, however, FormsCentral is suited for surveying a more geographically dispersed set of participants than can be easily accessed with the enterprise-focused LiveCycle.
The service will initially be offered only in English, though the company plans to offer additional languages in the near future.
Pricing for the service, available Monday, comes in three tiers. A free trial includes the ability to post one form and receive up to 50 responses. The "Basic" subscription service, priced at $14.99 a month, includes the ability to post five forms and allows up to 500 responses per form. The "Plus" service, for $199, allows unlimited forms, with 5,000 responses per form.
