It's a simple fact: if you're not using nutrition software, you're probably earning less than you should be earning. You're likely to be working too hard, charging too much, and serving too few clients. Your work is probably less accurate and less thorough than it should be. Let's face it... without nutrition software, you're less productive than you should be. And if you're less than fully productive, you're leaving money on the table.
It doesn't have to be like this. Modern nutrition software offers you improved accuracy, more comprehensive client reports, and the ability to get much more done in much less time. This translates into a more positive professional image, an elevation of your client's perception of your abilities, more value for your fee, the ability to handle much more work, and a better return to your bottom line.
Dollar for dollar, no other investment you make will impact your income the way your choice of nutrition software will. So the question isn't "Should I use nutrition software?" The real question is "Which nutrition software package should I be using?" Our company develops and markets NutriBase Clinical Nutrition and Fitness Software for Windows. I believe our nutrition software is - hands down - the best nutrition software you can buy. It will help you improve your service, allow you to handle more clients, and help you earn more money. Here's how:
Nutrition Facts Labels. Does your software help you create publication-quality U.S. Nutrition Fact Labels (U.S.) and Canadian Nutrition Facts Tables at no additional cost? For software that does, Esha Research charges $4999.00 (additional charge for Canadian label support and other “options”) and Axxya Systems requires you to purchase a separate U.S.-only label-making module. NutriBase provides basic nutrition labels for U.S. and Canadian markets. Canadian labels can be produced in English, French, English and French or French and English versions. You can include allergen statements and provide an ingredient listing in descending order of gram-weight contribution of each ingredient. You can select additional nutrients to include in your label. In addition to the basic label data, you can add: Polyunsaturated Fat, Monounsaturated Fat, Potassium, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Calcium, Iron, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Folate, Vitamin B12, Biotin, Pantothenic Acid, Phosphorus, Iodine, Magnesium, Zinc, Selenium, Copper, Manganese, Chromium, Chloride, and/or Molybdenum.
Web-Based synchronization of your data. NutriBase synchronizes your data? (food logs, recipes, meals, meal plans, personal food items, client information, etc.) across multiple computers. This allows you to access your most current data at any time – no matter which of your computers you created or edited them on, no matter which computer you are using at the moment, no matter what time of day it is, and no matter where your computers are located. When you make any change to any of your data files, these changes are immediately propagated across all of your computers - you're always working with your latest data.
Workgroup Synchronization. If you are one of several colleagues collaborating on a common NutriBase project, you’ll be able to share the most up-to-date recipes, food logs, etc. without the need to check revision numbers or creation dates of your NutriBase data files. All members of the workgroup would be working with the same, up-to-date data.
Recipe Web Pages. Once you create a recipe, you can add a photograph of that dish. Then, with a single click, you can create a template-driven recipe web page. Create new templates or edit existing ones to customize your recipe web page to look and feel like the pages on your existing web site. Your new web page can include your recipe, complete with its associated photograph and your choice of U.S. Nutrition Facts Label or Canadian Nutrition Facts Table.
Unique Features. NutriBase does things that our competitors can't do. For instance, you can publish your cookbook from within the software... automatically generate custom "Recipe-a-Day" web pages for any web site on the Internet... generate the industry's most fully customizable reports... save them in web page, PDF, or Excel format... generate customized macro-driven Initial Assessment Reports... access fully customizable support for Target Heart Rate Training... track and graph your client's body fat content over time... use the Harris-Benedict, Mifflin St. Jeor, the AEA Tables, or use direct RMR entry from your calorimeter... access the industry's most powerful Query (Boolean AND) function... use our Nutrient Density View to look at the nutrient information for say, 100 calories of all foods... use a single click to determine your client's Next Best Food To Eat. NutriBase supports all of these capabilities - our competitors don't.
NutriBase Client Intake Module (CIM). NutriBase enables you to generate hundreds of comprehensive food intake reports for your clients each week. Here's how it works: Start NutriBase and click a button to have our software burn as many NutriBase Client Intake Module (CIM) CD's as you wish. Put your own labels on them and hand them out to your clients. Have them install this software onto their PC's and record everything they eat for any number of days. When they're finished, they click a button to email you their results so you can produce an in-depth intake report, complete with your recommendations. Include images, charts, your logo, and even your picture. And of course, the CD's you create are reusable and royalty-free. You can also upload the CIM to your web site. After your client pays for the service, you can provide them the download link and instructions for using the CIM. Our competitors don't provide this capability.
NutriBase Meal Plans. Professionally developed Meal Plans can take you 40 hours or more to develop - yet they take only seconds to access and put to use in NutriBase software. Our staff of RD's have developed numerous NutriBase-compatible Meal Plans for you. These Meal Plans target special needs like weight loss, diabetes, hypertension, healthy heart, vegetarian, Vegan body building, etc. Each plan provides up to three meals and three snacks a day for four weeks. Each is available at eight calorie levels. Each Meal Plan is ready to use "as-is," to edit to suit your client's special needs, or to serve as the starting point for your new, custom Meal Plans. NutriBase Meal Plans save you days of effort and allow you to quickly deliver high quality services to your clients for less. And once again, NutriBase stands alone in providing this feature.
Other considerations. NutriBase is very different from its closest competitors. Sheer power is a good reason for selecting NutriBase. But there are other considerations. For instance, does the software's End User License allow you to install your nutrition software to your work PC, your home PC, and your laptop without having to pay for three copies of the software? NutriBase does. Does the company let you download the latest software updates at no charge from their web site any time you feel like it - 24/7? NutriBase does. Has the company sold over three million copies of the world's most successful series of nutrition information books based on the data used in their software? NutriBase has. Does the company give you toll-free tech support for the life of your software? NutriBase does. And finally, does the company charge you $300 or more every year for updates and continued product support? NutriBase doesn't - but our competitors do.
Too hot to handle? It you're smart enough to deserve "RD" after your name, you're smart enough to master NutriBase. And we give you a lot of help. Our 250-page User's Manual provides step-by-step instructions for every capability. We provide toll-free support during our work hours. We provide 24/7 email support.
If you do the things you've always done, you'll get the results you've always gotten... we invite you to look into a new and better way of doing things...
