FormSite.com is a service of Vroman Systems, Inc, a private corporation based in suburban Chicago, Illinois. Vroman Systems, Inc has maintained financial independence with no outside investors since its inception.
In the spring of 1998, Randy Vroman was performing contract development work for a client and witnessed a marketing manager approach the IT manager and ask for help building an Internet survey. The IT manager told the marketing manager that his team was too backlogged and that it would be quite some time before his team could help with the survey. Randy thought to himself that he may be able to build a tool enabling the marketing manager to build the survey herself. He started FormSite.com as a side project and it immediately gained traction. At the end of 1999 Randy began working full time on FormSite.com.
