Private practice

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


Top reasons to why Pabau is better way to go over Private practice when you are wanting to choose a Practice Management System.

Read in more detail what exactly Pabau has to offers in comparison to Private practice’s practice management system.

Reason #1 - GDPR Compliant / Migration Support

Private practice do not have a standard way in which they will transfer you the data. When you make a data request, you will often get push back from them. It takes a number of complaints until you will get it in some instances, and in other instances the data provided is incomplete.

Reason #2 - Going Paperless

The paperless features were not researched, and whilst Private practice promotes the ability to go paperless, the majority of clients that we migrate away do not use the features due to it not really being fit for purpose. Developing a paperless app requires a team of developers in itself, and at Pabau, we have 4 full time employees responsible solely for the maintenance and development of the paperless app & features of Pabau. The consultation forms are simply not built for clinics.

Reason #3 - Fit for Clinics

Private practice was built for hair salons, not clinics. Whilst software in these sectors can be similar, the wording, education, features and terminology are completely different. Whilst it is important for a system to have great usability, we find that the healthcare sector demands more flexibility and functionality. Pabau focuses on offering medically compliant software.

Reason #4 Online Booking Fees

Many clients we move over from Private practice to Pabau clinic software complain of the £1.50 fee. A review from James D reads “Based on my previous software company there was no charge and most of my booking made over night too, so in my eyes I am concerned about this.”
