Power Diary overview

What is Power Diary?

Power Diary also supports integration with Stripe, Mailchimp, Xero, and Google Calendar.

Power Diary is suitable for clinics of any size, from sole practitioners to large, multi-location practices. Typical users include physiotherapists, psychologists, speech therapists, podiatrists, massage therapists, naturopaths, osteopaths, chiropractors, counsellors, etc.

Power Diary offers a universal calendar and one-click appointment management, giving practitioners quick and central access to all of their appointments.

Other calendar features include recurring roster patterns, custom online availability, custom grouping, color coding, quick toggle, and more.

Power Diary’s client CRM allows users to access and manage basic client details and contact information from a single location. The CRM also stores client insurance details and keeps a record of all of their past and future appointments, as well as their attendance history.

To ensure full control over the booking process, Power Diary allows users to set up their appointment rules and cancellation policy.

Personal Trainer(s) Appointment Portal

Used daily for 1-2 years
Reviewed 2019-12-04
Review Source: Capterra

All personal trainers appointments in one place. Payment processing makes it easy for clients to pay for their personal training sessions. Clients profile details are located in this app. Makes it easy for personal trainers to refer to specific client.

Pros
I keep track of multiple personal trainers in one portal. Clients book online. Clients can process their personal training payments online. Power Diary shows every personal trainers available time slots.

Cons
Need note security. One personal trainer should not be able to see another personal trainers client notes.

Response from Power Diary


Thanks for the great review Jordan! With the Notes access - if you go to Setup > Users and untick "Access all Client Session Notes" for your users then they won't be able to access other PT's client notes. - Damien

Overall Power Diary is meeting the needs of our business however we have had to make a large number of changes to our processes and way of working with our clients to accommodate Power Diary. There are a number of functionalities that we would like to see.

Pros
- Visually appealing - Ability to produce multiple reports - Simple and easy to use calendar and client set up - Client online booking portal - Medicare processing - Data consistancy

Cons
- Limited functions available on the calendar - cannot view single day of the week for multiple weeks - Unable to limit who access notes and profile information - anyone with can access client notes and view client profiles regardless if the client is allocated to them or not - Unable to create an overall number of sessions used in a session pack per year - this is still tracked manually

Not too bad, with potential

Overall it isn't too bad, Notes are quite good. And staff are good. However, it does remain a very restrictive platform with multiple irritating imperfections. They are keen to listen and let you know they are making changes, but the role out is extremely slow and slightly disappointing following the long wait. They have the potential to be very good if they implemented the changes they say they would do, but sometimes get they feel they are complacent with their product.

Pros
Support is good in that staff to try their best to help quickly with the availability they have. Have some good features e.g notes. It can be a cheaper option if you avoid using SMS. (This is where they make up the difference.)

Cons
They take a very long time to implement changes, yet they can implement changes fast if need to such as adding telehealth during COVID 19 in a week (if they didn't they would have lost business). They discussed intake forms since I started a year ago (and has been a popular demand by many users) and still just talk of it happening, yet keep you hooked by saying coming in a few months. They make their money on SMS so be careful , never known SMS to be so expensive. They recently did a user interface facelift with new features. It is still quite dated compared to competitors and you're restricted to what you can do. They could do with a graphics designer or ergonomic designer on their team.

Thanks John. The Online Forms have taken longer than initially anticipated, but I can assure you it has nothing to do with complacency - in fact quite the opposite. Our online forms are built on our Client Portal platform. During dev we identified there were some emerging limitations with the technology we had been using for the Client Portal. We decided that instead of building another feature on top of it, we should instead rebuild the Client Portal first using more flexibility technology, and then build the Online Forms using that. It's a 'get the foundations right first' type decision. Whilst not glamorous, this approach has ongoing, long-term benefits for all our users. The Client Portal has now been rebuilt and released, and the Online Forms function is in final stages of pre-Beta testing. Re SMS: these are middle-range for pricing. We use an enterprise-grade gateway that is very reliable. There are some cheaper, less reliable providers but we will never use them.

Power Diary helps me save time

Used daily for 1-2 years

Review Source: Capterra

I don't have any double handling...I can email clients and other health professionals straight from the software which links to the respective client's file.

Pros
Tailored client note functions, easy accounting with feeds to Xero, and a willingness to look at adaptations to suit the needs of my business. Also, support by Australian's which is thorough, quick and friendly. Client Portal

Cons
Still a few aspects of the note forms requiring changes to make extra helpful notes for my clinic.

Best decision I made for my practice

Used daily for 2+ years

Review Source: Capterra

Pros
The best thing about PowerDiary would have to be the time savings having everything incorporated into the one program, being able to send/receive SMS including automated reminders, AND being able to export directly to Xero! It’s great! It is so simple to use as well and there are always new features being added. Customer support are also fabulous when you need a hand with something!

Cons
I dislike that I have my calendar set up in 30min timeslots so I have to scroll to view the entire day. Nothing major! Oh & I wish you could send faxes from PowerDiary.
