Yapi claims to do everything needed for a more efficient dental practice, all in one app. They give you various modules like:
- Paperless – to eliminate printing, scanning, and shredding paper.
- Practice Dashboard to unite your team, keep track of your office flow.
- Intra-Office communications to know when something is happening.
- Patient Engagement by sending personalized communications to patients.
- Review Generation to get reviews on Google, Yelp & Facebook.
- Phone Assisting App to provide a good patient experience with every call by displaying the info about each patient.
While their app seems to have some great features, we feel it has missed the boat on what features are needed for a true all-in-one app.
To really provide everything that’s needed, we feel data and analytics are great, but actual marketing actions are far superior and desired. Here at Review Wave, we offer a full marketing platform. Review Wave includes SEO, Online Scheduling for new patients, Appointment Reminders, 2-way Texting, and Feedback Requests for retention and online reputation. And we go above and beyond most others in providing automated social media sharing and Check-In Marketing for referrals.
Yapi starts at $99 a month, but that gives you a simple dashboard. Once you add in all the features they offer, the price goes up to about $400 per month. Even if you just add the basic features, it is still more costly than Review Wave. Fortunately, they don’t require long term contracts. However, they do charge a hefty setup fee (which covers customization) which can range anywhere from $199 all the way up to $399. In addition to the above costs, they also have further add-ons (which are an extra charge) called “Insta Review” and “Phone Assistant” which are both an additional $49 per month.
Review Wave has no long term contracts and certainly never any setup fees. We even have superior support to help you setup your account and ensure you are taking advantage of all the available features, all at no charge. We just want to make sure you are getting the most you can out of your Review Wave account! Yapi reports that their setup/implementation process takes about 2 weeks. Review Wave’s implementation process takes about 30-60 minutes. You can be up and running, connected to your practice management software and sending out feedback requests within an hour! And our support team is always there for you. We pride ourselves on fast turnaround times for any support questions or issues. You may contact support by calling (949) 383-4022 or emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or using the chat feature on our website www.reviewwave.com. Someone is always there to help you and answer your questions.
You can get all our great features like SEO, Online Scheduling, Appointment Reminders, 2-Way Texting, Feedback Requests, Review Monitoring, Social Media Sharing and Check-In Marketing for just $299 a month.
While we may be biased, we believe that this comparison is fair and transparent. And for a side-by-side comparison, we feel it’s clear that Review Wave is the more economical and logical option!
