How do I learn more about Bandwindow?
Schedule a phone call by clicking the button below. You will speak to one of our team members over an informal "get-to-know-each-other" style conversation. We will see if your band and Bandwindow are a good fit for each other. Afterward, we will provide the materials, resources, and information that make the most sense for what you ultimetly want for your band program or music school.
Does this tool comply with my university's technical regulations?
Bandwindow has been implemented at over 60 universities (and counting), most of which have very strict rules around what technology can be used. We haven't had any IT departments reject this tool. Bandwindow adheres to very strict industry-standard information security guidelines. A complete summary of our technical specs (most of which is very boring information if you are not in IT) is available upon request.
My university's admissions department already has their own tools to handle admissions and enrollment
Bandwindow is a completely different category than admissions software. As one of many examples, if your tuba professor wants to share an invitation to a breathing workshop with all the prospectivce tuba recruits, he or she would not be able to use Slate, Ellucian, Salesforce, or anything of that sort to get that word out. Old-school batch & blast CRM tools were not designed to attract and inspire a 17 year old to join your marching band! Bandwindow is, however, great at directing more prospective students to your university's admissions website (who wouldn't have otherwise been reached), which Admissions always appreciates. Our product has been built to ensure no redundancy in feature set and that no data slips through the cracks. Contact us for more info.
I'm not technical at all. Can I still use Bandwindow?
Yes. We have many music school directors, faculty, and administrators who have zero technical skills who are realizing value from Bandwindow everyday. We get it - you have zero time to learn a new software. We know that for the most part. you are not a technologist or marketer. You are a musician or music educator. One of the main reasons programs love working with Bandwindow is we do all of the heavy lifting in terms of designing your content and campaigns. The tool has been built specifically for faculty and directors at music schools who are not accustomed to using fancy technology.
Who are you guys anyway?
We are a team of music enthusiasts, marketers, and engineers. We have all been music or theatre students before launching Bandwindow. From first-hand experience, our team has a unique combination of expertise in the music school industry, engaging Gen-Zers, and marketing.
I would rather wait to implement a solution like this
If you wait, you will be leaving a lot of opportunity on the table. Every time a prospective student visits your website, attends a performance, walks past your music building, and every time a faculty member does a workshop at a high school, prospective students are slipping through the cracks. These are high quality students, alumni, and fans who you want to begin a relationship with. You often only have one chance to be capturing these people and getting them into your network. You should not wait to do this.
