Why Go With Review Wave vs SKED?
The word first

we’d just like to give a quick nod to the team at SKED. They’ve built a great APP to help Chiropractors. There's no question about that. The question is: which service is the best choice for your practice success, Review Wave or SKED? Well, if you're here to evaluate Review Wave vs SKED, or you're looking for a SKED alternative, then you’re already making the right choice by finding a product that will help you have more conversations with your patients. So, what’s the difference between Review Wave and SKED? Sure, there are features and product stuff that’s very different between the 2 companies (which we get into further down this page if you’re interested).


The founding team at SKED . . . well, is a young chiropractor who created SKED as a part-time business in the back of his chiropractic office. Meanwhile, the founding team at Review Wave is a full-time business with 15 team members and growing. That's twice as big in half the time! So, long story short: if you’re a doctor or a clinic manager who is looking for a product built to help you generate more new patients, increase patient engagement, decrease your no-show rate, and you want a company that understands YOU and will provide full-time support, then you’re in the right place. We created Review Wave and the category of Patient Engagement for YOU! Come on in. The water is warm.

The TOP Reasons Why Companies Use Review Wave vs SKED

review wave logo / Sked comparison
The features you need, without the headaches.

Review Wave can handle your business texting, appointment reminders, online scheduling, marketing automation, and mobile APP scheduling, but most importantly, all with heroic support! Versus some hacked code that crashes databases and doesn’t care about the quality of the data left behind with SKED. Not to mention, SKED’s support doesn’t have the best reputation. Yikes.

Read more about our Features here.

A direct and dependable integration with your EHR.

Because Review Wave is a full-time business, we have the manpower to work hand-in-hand with EHR companies to complete integrations. Allowing us to integrate with more and more EHRs and in turn, help more and more doctors. Nobody wants a product that has to hack their EHR data or doesn't connect to their EHR very nicely.

So easy to use, your grandma could navigate it.

Every company can say, “send the right message to the right person at the right time.” But with Review Wave, you can take things a step further than SKED, and dial in your automation to do just that.

Learn more about our Ease of Use.

You deserve unrivaled reliability.

One of the limitations of SKED is the lack of an actual business behind it. If you've used SKED, you know this pain. Catching 1 of the 2 part-time support people, who double as sales people, can be a serious issue. Far too many times, we've heard how their software causes your database to crash and then they point their finger back at you. That isn’t very helpful.

Learn more about our Reliability.

You deserve heroic support!

We are a company committed to serving you and your team to help you grow. In fact, we have 7 full-time support team members and are adding 2 more next week. SKED has 2 part-timers. . . wah-wah-waaah. Plus, we offer phone, email and LIVE CHAT support. So, you can trust that we’ve got your back. We’re built for this.

Well, SKED doesn't have a real office or a listing on Google My Business (that's weird for a real business, isn't it?), but here are their reviews from the Google Play store...
