Productive Computing, Inc. today announced the release of Music Director Pro, a web-based software management tool for band, orchestra, or choral directors. With this software, music program directors will have the ability to track and catalog music libraries, instrument and uniform inventories, people, ensembles, lockers, and schedules. This vital information is organized in one central repository and easily accessible 24/7 via a computer in the classroom, in the office, or at home. It is also accessible through mobile devices, which is very useful when music directors are in the storage room, out on the field or parade ground, in a concert hall, or when looking for a specific piece of music in the library filing cabinets.

This band director software solution does away with the issues normally experienced with hard-to-find, scattered, handwritten documents or numerous spreadsheets that are only available on one computer. Music Director Pro can also be simultaneously shared with multiple users in order to delegate the responsibility of data entry or managing different parts of the system by students, volunteers, or other staff members. This easy-to-use system will help directors reduce the current effort required to organize and track the assets within their music program.

Music Director Pro is a full-featured solution offered under a Software as a Service (SaaS) subscription model and comes with a free-30 day trial. There is no software to install or IT department to get involved. Customers can purchase a subscription to the software for an annual fee of $179.00 and have the optional choice to convert and import their current spreadsheet data for a one-time fee of $75.00.

Music Director Pro is built on the award winning FileMaker database engine which can also be easily deployed in a custom environment. Customers who are interested in customizing how the software functions to meet their specific needs or who would like to install Music Director Pro within their own IT infrastructure may obtain an unlimited user site license for a one-time fee. Contact Productive Computing for details on this license, deployment requirements, and for a quote for custom development services.
