Industry influencers have included us on their “top Analytics tools” lists but what exactly makes Formisimo the top choice for form analytics? You’re probably weighing up your options. Do I need form analytics? Couldn’t I set it up myself? This post explains why our current customers chose Formisimo over any other tool and why they continue to trust us to help them improve their forms.
Formisimo is incredibly fast to install. We can start tracking your forms in 60 seconds.
How can we be this fast?
When you set up a new form to track we’ll be able to associate that with the data we’re receiving to produce detailed reports.
In contrast, setting up form tracking in Google Analytics takes forever and ever, weeks even, due to the developer time needed to implement it.
Formisimo is just plain fast.
Fast on your site
This means that even though we’re collecting lots and lots of data, we never slow your site down. In fact, we track and record billions of rows of data in less than 50 milliseconds. Blink and you’ve missed it.
We were recently included in ConversionXL’s list of best tools for conducting conversion optimisation.
“Formisimo does a very good job at providing in-depth information that really helps with optimization efforts”. – Peep Laja
While we’re delighted an expert like Peep enjoys using Formisimo. Below you’ll see the depth of information our reports provide.
What analytics data will I see?
All customers have access to Formisimo’s full suite of reports. These are:
- An overview of your form’s performance, showing visits, starters and conversions.
- The ability to segment by device i.e. mobile and tablet.
- Real Time Statistics (more on this below).
- Completion Time.
- Fields Before Submission.
- Field Times.
- Popular Dropoff.
- Most Corrected Fields.
- Problem Fields.
The reports include both visual displays of data and tables of figures that relate to each form field.
For example, in the Popular Dropoffs report:
- Drop off %: percentage of form visitors drop off in this field.
- Drop offs: actual number of drop offs associated with that field.
- % of Total Drop Offs: The number of drop offs in this field as a percentage of total form drop offs.
- Each form field is given an overall health score so you get the best idea of where to start improving your form.

Formisimo integrates with some of your other favourite tools.
Google Tag Manager
If you use Google Tag Manager (GTM) on your site then go you, it’s very handy.
Add Formisimo tracking and conversion code to your website using GTM. Next, set up a new form to track on your Formisimo tracking dashboard. During the setup process, we’ll automatically detect if you’re using Google Tag Manager.
Unbounce is a platform for creating landing pages and testing alternative landing page designs against each other. Formisimo and Unbounce have an official integration, making it super easy to track forms on landing pages, even when you’re testing.
It took me less than a minute to add the conversion and tracking code snippets to a simple landing page I just created in Unbounce. You can see the whole process in the video below:
And just the tracking code, ooh…look how quick that is:
Real time analytics
Real Time Statistics is a feature that displays data about how visitors are currently interacting with your form; showing what fields they’re in and what action they’re taking.
Watch Real Time Statistics updating:
You’ll get information on:
- The number of users currently on your checkout or form.
- Which fields are currently being interacted with and what action is being taken:
- The number of recent conversions
- The number of recent form drop offs
By watching visitors to your form in real time you can identify problems as they are happening. Our customers love to keep this report open in the office for all departments to see.
