"LimeSurvey is used in production in the Austrian Vorarlberg State Government. LimeSurvey could stand up to two other commercial tools which have been also offered. Functionality and usability are comparable to commercial products. Regarding accessibility LimeSurvey was the only product which convinced."

"The project uses LimeSurvey to realize its polls. The vote for the version 3.0 splash screen, the call for location of the Conference and other important surveys have already been done using LimeSurvey. For us, it's a professional, easy-to-use software that definitely fulfills our needs. Thumbs up!"

Open Source

"Limesurvey allowed us to build a complex community survey using 100% free (as in GPL) software with more functionality than what we found in other non-free online survey software. More than 1000 persons responded to the survey in the first day without a glitch."

Open Source

"We needed a one-time solution to do a small internal survey at GNOME. LimeSurvey provided us an easy to use, easy to set up, completely Free Software solution. It took me one night to set it up, design my survey, and use their cute embedded template editor to make the survey blend in the rest of our site."
