Wufoo is one of the most popular and powerful online form builders with almost 10 years of experience in the field, founded in 2006 by Chris Campbell, Kevin Hale and Ryan Campbell. Their aim was to reduce the form building time from “what used to take days (if not weeks) by trained professionals into something that could be done by anyone in minutes”. Since then the company is on constant development. In 2011 was acquired by SurveyMonkey, a market leader in web-based survey solutions.

If you need a form or survey, Wufoo has already created more than 300 templates and themes, arranged on categories like Surveys, Invitations, Registrations, Led Generation, Online Orders or Tracking and tons of subcategories.
