Meddbase

Looking for a better alternative to Meddbase? Look no further – here’s exactly what Pabau can offer you that Meddbase can’t.

 

Top reasons to why Pabau is better way to go over Meddbase when you are wanting to choose a Practice Management Software.

Read in more detail what exactly Pabau has to offer in comparison to Meddbase’s practice management software.

Reason #1 - No App

Having a native app is important for any business. According to people we have moved over and their website, Meddbase is yet to launch a mobile app, meaning that the way it will work on your mobile/tablet is via the browser. This makes it difficult to create a great user experience, and you are very limited and reliant on your internet connection, as well as having limited features that are expected from when needing to access your business tools on the go.

Reason #2 - Limited Functionality

We find generally that the people that move from Meddbase to Pabau often quote that they have “grown out of it”, and often hit a brick wall when it comes to the features. Meddbase does not tend to have a ‘Community’, and their range of clients from different sectors suggests that they target all and anyone. One client quoted they have some big contracts with the likes of BUPA may restrict them from working on the wider in-demand features of the everyday medical practice (we know, we have been there!)

Reason #3 - Calendar

With the calendar being one of the core features within Pabau, we have invested a lot of time and resource into developing it with usability at the heart.

Reason #4 - Complex & Paid Reporting

In order to build custom reports in Meddbase you need to have a slight technical background according to some clients we have moved over, with it being a very technical process. The feature to build custom reports is known as ‘Query Builder’, and is a paid addon should you wish to use it (it is best to check if this is still the case).

Reason #5 - Stability

For any medical business, the up-time of your software is crucial. Whilst no provider can guarantee 100% uptime, we make sure all the necessary procedures are in place to avoid any outage big or small. A number of clients migrating from Meddbase speak of frequent outages. Specifically, a Facebook client ‘We were on Meddbase for 8 years and although it had outages. You have to assume your software and broadband will be down and plan accordingly by having paper copies of all your forms, reports on all upcoming appointments, and a backup of your patient/client data.

Reason #6 - Investors

The most important thing to note is that almost every investor wants their money back (with a big return) within 5 years. They are not looking to invest in a growing profitable business and they’re not interested in getting their fair share of profits over an extended time period. Taking funding is not always best for a company and its clients.

Reason #7 - Exit Fees

If ever you were to leave Meddbase, you would be handed your data in ‘JSON Format’. Most providers would have to build tools in order to migrate the information, which could result in errors, as the data should always be provided in Excel/CSV format. Having performed many successful Meddbase migrations, we are familiar with delivering positive results. If you did wish to request the data in Excel/CSV format, Meddbase will charge you £400-£500 per table (on average there are 15 tables that are required for a successful migration).
