Productive Computing, Inc. Releases Music Director Pro

San Diego, CA - March 11, 2013 - 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 from your computer in the classroom, in the office or at home. It is also accessible through your phone or mobile device which is very useful when you 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 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® Pro 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. Please contact us for details on this license, deployment requirements and for a quote for custom development services.
