Nutrition management software comparisons

Here’s the thing... we don’t know a lot about the other nutrition management software systems. We would rather spend our time innovating and supporting Foodzilla than copying our competitors. We focus on our own products and actively talk with our customers to solve their problems as we design our solutions and improve Foodzilla for everyone.

Where to now?

Don’t leave just yet though! You’re probably here because you’re looking for software for your nutrition and coaching business, and it’s very tough to choose which one to use. We don’t want you to leave empty-handed, so we’ve put together some tips on how to choose a Nutrition Management Software and Meal Planning system. Spoiler: none of the tips include trusting a comparison review written by one of the systems themselves.

“Hold on a minute!” you might be thinking, “Now they’re going to give me biased tips to make Foodzilla look good”... and that's correct in a way. The tips below are actually quite good when choosing a Nutrition Management System, and surprise, if you’re choosing based on a good methodology, you end up with Foodzilla looking great, because it is! 🎉

We hope the tips below can help you a bit. When you’re done reading them, you might also want to go and check out some other pages of this website, to see what Foodzilla is all about... might as well right?

5 tips for choosing software for your nutrition business

1. Can you afford it?

If you can’t afford it, there’s no point seeing how good it is. First step is to make sure it meets your budget. Most systems will have a pricing page on their website.

We don’t believe price alone should be your deciding factor, you don’t need to choose the cheapest, the system you choose will be very important to your business. It just needs to be affordable, to be considered, and hopefully offers you more value than it costs.

Foodzilla is the most affordable cloud product that saves you hundreds today and thousands as your business grows. You can find our Foodzilla pricing very easily.

2. Does it have the features you need?

It wouldn’t be much good if the system was affordable but didn’t actually do what you need. So best to check that out too! Nutrition Management Systems are generally quite comprehensive when it comes to feature sets. Just make sure the things you know you need, are handled by the system you choose.

Foodzilla replaces several tools and streamlines your workflow thereby saving you time and money.

You can see all of our features in detail in our features page.

3. Does it work on the devices you use?

Are you on Mac or PC? Do you want to use it on your iPad, Galaxy Tab, iPhone, or Android Phone? You’ll want to make sure it works on all the devices you plan to use. One step better, make sure it’s great on those devices, not just that it works.

You guessed it! Foodzilla works on all of those devices above.

4. What is the support like?

Let’s face it, no matter how good the system is, you’re going to be needing support at one time or another. It’s best to not wait until then to find out it’s rubbish.

You can of course read about companies support on their website, but we’ve never spotted a website that says “Our support is terrible, 98% of people hated speaking with us... and that’s from the small portion that actually got through”. That said, there’s plenty of companies where that would be accurate.

Our tip, try it out. That’s when you’ll find out the truth. Want to try ours out? There’s a little green chat bubble in the bottom-right corner. Go see who’s on the other end!

5. Do a free trial!

Similar to above, you can’t believe everything you read on a company's website. Like those less than honest comparison reviews, websites have a tendency to highlight the good points, and skim over (omit) the bad. Any system that you consider should be offering you a completely free trial. Changing or purchasing a system is a big deal, you shouldn’t be going into that blindly.

Start a free trial with all the systems you’re considering, and really kick the tyres, make sure you’re making an educated decision based on what you’ve seen, not just what you’ve been told.

With Foodzilla, you get 10 days free trial to try things out and give it a good test.
