Mobilize your practice, literally

Streamline your scheduling, billing, and more with the top-rated SimplePractice mobile app—available for iPhone and Android.


The Difference

Better ratings from more practitioners

The SimplePractice mobile app has a 4.7/5 rating based on 8,500+ practitioner reviews. By comparison, TheraNest’s app only has a 2.6/5 rating based on <30 reviews.

I use the mobile app all day. With SimplePractice, I can be in complete control of my business from anywhere in the world.

— Nathan R.

Get paid on time, every time

AutoPay runs a client’s card each night to save time, avoid payment conversations, and minimize unpaid sessions.


The Difference

An automatic system

SimplePractice’s AutoPay means you’re always paid for services rendered—and TheraNest doesn’t offer that.

The AutoPay feature has been a life saver. With great invoicing and billing features, SimplePractice does everything we need. I can’t recommend it enough!

— Zakk G.

Give clients the freedom of choice

New and existing clients can request their own appointments through the Client Portal—including virtual sessions.


The Difference

Easy to embed on your site

You can easily embed the Booking Widget on your website to improve your clients’ experience.

I love how intuitive the software is. It has been very easy to use for my clients and helps to decrease no-show appointments.

— Jasmine M.
