What’s the difference between
Splose and Power Diary?
If bulk and two-way SMS communication, 1-on-1 emails with clients and a robust, embedded client portal are vital to your practice, not to mention competitive pricing with no extra fees for data, then Power Diary is the best choice for you. Particularly if you need custom online availability for multiple practitioners.
Below we’ve explored the main differences between the two systems, to help you make an informed decision.

Why should you choose Power Diary?
Power Diary Simply Costs Less
We understand that for most business purchases, price is a significant factor, and at Power Diary we’re working to support your growth by keeping our prices as low as possible while still providing you the best possible system.
Both Power Diary and Splose have similar pricing models, including a fixed base cost for the system and an additional charge for SMS. What you’ll find when you compare our pricing per practitioner however, is that Power Diary costs significantly less than Splose for practices with four or more providers, especially with our current offer of 50% off for your first 6 months.
To demonstrate the potential cost-saving, see below for a detailed comparison of costs associated with both systems. From these comparisons, you’ll see that Power Diary is actually substantially cheaper, particularly when more calendars are required.
In addition to our competitive per practitioner pricing, Power Diary never charges you extra to process insurance claims. Splose uses a third-party service, Medipass, to process Medicare, DVA and HICAPS claims, with additional charges paid separately based on the number of claims your practice processes in a month.
No Extra Fees for Data Imports and Storage
At Power Diary, we know it can be stressful for practices to import their data into a new system. That’s why we offer a totally free, comprehensive, and fast data import facilitated by our experienced in-house data experts. We get that it’s important to make the move to Power Diary as simple and easy as possible.
Splose does offer data import service, but a $100 fee is required that will then be applied as a credit to your account. And with no money-back guarantee, your practice assumes the financial risk if you decide that Splose isn’t right for you.
In addition to our data import service and competitive pricing per practitioner, with Power Diary, you’ll never pay additional fees for data storage, no matter how many records you have.
In contrast, Splose charges additional fees if your data exceeds the 50GB limit included with their base subscription rate.
Two-Way SMS, Bulk SMS and Email Communication
Good communication can drastically improve the running of a practice, be it with clients, colleagues or other healthcare providers. Although both Splose and Power Diary support email and SMS messaging, only Power Diary gives you seamless two-way conversations with clients, all from within the app.
While Splose has SMS and email capability, it’s only one-way and doesn’t support bulk SMS for communications such as promotions or updating clients about a change of address or operating hours.
Reduce No-Shows with Client Portal Capabilities
Power Diary’s robust client portal experience allows clients not only to book appointments, but also to cancel and reschedule entirely online, managing their own appointments at their convenience. The ability to quickly and easily reschedule appointments when needed helps you to provide exceptional customer service, increase client satisfaction, and reduce the financial impact of clients who cancel without rescheduling.
Power Diary also provides an unparalleled client portal experience with various customisations to make you stand out from the crowd. These include adding a logo, a header image, brand colours, appointment instructions, booking rules, a cancellation policy, and much more. You can even set custom availability for online bookings!
Splose, however, doesn’t offer a client portal that can be embedded on your website, and lacks the functionality to set custom online availability, and for clients to cancel and reschedule online.
Secure, In-Platform Telehealth Functionality
Both Splose and Power Diary offer Telehealth, allowing practitioners the ability to meet with clients online. With Splose, Telehealth is supported by a third-party platform, while Power Diary offers a native, simple to use in-platform experience that is secure and doesn’t involve third parties.
For security reasons, Power Diary believes that third-party access to your data should always be minimised. That’s why our Telehealth system is built to create a direct, peer-to-peer connection between you and your client, which is end-to-end encrypted to offer the highest levels of security, whilst also being incredibly simple to use.
100% Money-Back Guarantee
Unlike Splose, Power Diary offers a unique 100% money-back guarantee. Customer satisfaction is a top priority, so if you decide that Power Diary’s not right for you at any time within the first 12 months, just let us know and we’ll refund 100% of your subscription fees (including SMS charges!) – no strings attached.
Switching to a new practice management system can be exciting; new features and functionalities that you can’t wait to get started with! This feeling can soon turn to frustration if things aren’t as straightforward to use as expected, especially if you don’t have the support you need.
At Power Diary, we want you to have confidence not only in our software, but also in the continuous support and guidance you’ll receive for the duration of your time with us. We have our expert support team on hand via email or live-chat to answer any questions you have, plus our Video Tutorials and Knowledge Base, filled with help articles to guide you through every feature and function we offer. These articles are continuously refreshed to ensure that you have the most up-to-date information possible.
Like Power Diary, Splose provides live chat support for existing customers and an article database with tutorials. However, Splose doesn’t offer video tutorials on their website or on their YouTube channel.
No risk with our Money-Back Guarantee
Yes, you read that right! Simply start your account now and if at anytime over the next 12 months you think Power Diary isn’t right for you just cancel your account and we’ll refund 100% of any subscription fees you’ve paid.
