Frequently asked questions

Should I have a business website or business app?

We love apps – they show that your business is embracing tech and leading their industry. But a prospective client isn’t going to go to the app store to find a Physio.

Websites are more readily accessible (mobile and web) and faster to search for info. Apps can add mind-blowing functionality and engagement, but they can’t capture future clients searching for a new Physio.

Your choice is simple: website only or website + app?

Why would a Physio practice develop an app?

That’s the trick to any engaging app – it has to be useful.

It has to solve a user problem. Otherwise, why would anyone bother? If it’s just got your contact details and address, why wouldn’t they just go to your website?

That’s why we develop apps with brains – apps that can process user enquiries and provide them with some useable output.

In the case of the Physio business app, it can triage injury and advise users on what their initial actions should be (eg. Xray, avoid meds, seek a Physio appointment)

How much does it cost to develop an app?

That’s the magic question, isn’t it? It seems to be shrouded in mystery and hard to get a straight answer. Until now.

With our current offer, you can have a customised app in both app stores for $2200 AUD.

Our approach is simple. We have already developed the functional parts of an app. We can show you a working model of what you get – no vague sketches or “imagine this” pitches.

All you need to do is pick which bits you want in your app, like going to Subway and making our own creation. It then gets customised for your business – your logo, colour schemes, and (obviously) website and contact details.

How risky is outsourcing development to overseas?

We don’t do it, ever. It might be slightly cheaper but there are a number of glaring issues.

It takes time to brief the overseas agent on the specs, then it needs to bounce back and forth until they get it right. All of that is billable time that adds to the cost, and for a less-than-ideal outcome.

We develop everything in-house, right here in Sydney, Australia. Progress updates are regularly provided and there are no issues with external or outsourced developers.

What functions could a Physio business app provide?

It’s really a matter of what your patients would value. Exercise programs, injury screening and provisional diagnoses, guidance on immediate response to injury…the list is endless.

Just think of a problem that your clients need solved. It’s probably something you get calls about every week. Then put that in an app and make it engaging.

The idea is to be helpful to clients. The outcome is better retention and lifetime customer value. It’s a big win-win.

How do I get started? What’s the process?

Well, that’s the easy bit!

1. Get in touch with us via the form below.
2. We’ll start a no-obligation conversation to better understand your clientele and the needs of your practice.
3. Once you’re ready to roll, a small deposit is required for us to get cracking.
4. We’ll send you a list of requirements, like your website URL, booking page, brand colours and more (all very simple stuff but it gives you complete control over the look and feel of the final product).
5. Within 5-10 working days, we have a completed version of your app to show you for your approval (or tweak and modify it until you’re happy – there’s no limit to edits before we go live).
6. Once you’re happy, we upload it to the app store and within 1-2 days (depending on the app store processing times), you have yourself a shiny new app to share with clients.

Is there a example of an existing Physio clinic app?

Certainly is – we put an app into the App Store in June 2023 for the Bioathletic clinics in Sydney, Australia.
You can find it by searching ‘Bioathletic’ in the App store for iOS and Android.
Otherwise, you can click here for iOS and here for Android.
