Six teams of recruiters are scouring the corners of the earth, from Europe and Asia to Africa and Australia. Their job: to audition and interview the most promising new musician-applicants to the world-famous and highly selective Berklee College of Music. Instead of lugging laptops, they use FileMaker Go, the best-selling business database app for iPad, to assess prospects and track their credentials.
"We sometimes audition and interview 300 students a day," says Damien Bracken, dean of admissions for Berklee College of Music. "With 80 faculty and 40 staff on the road throughout the year and 7,200 applicants annually, the admissions process would be nearly impossible to manage without FileMaker Pro, FileMaker Server and FileMaker Go for iPad."
