One word of warning: take great care if you're planning to collect customers' personal data with such online survey tools. Businesses have a legal responsibility to safeguard customers' data, and you will need to ensure that such tools comply with your data policy and are adequately secured (i.e. with strong passwords) before even attempting to collect data such as email addresses, telephone numbers etc.
