Bandize Leave Beta Launch New Features!


We have already told you about Bandize a virtual band manager that boasts features like:

  • Tour Management including mapping, show contacts, financial tracking, etc.
  • Easy to use accounting facilities
  • Social network syncing for many of the popular sites (Myspace, PureVolume, with Facebook and Last.FM coming later)
  • Merch Management
  • Contacts list
  • Pivitol Tracker so everyone knows what needs to get done
  • Keep track of reviews, logos, designs, art etc.

They have left Beta you can see they have priced themselves for $15 a month (you can try a 30 day trial) unless you are a label and adding more than 5 bands. They also added a few new features:

  • Import existing shows from Myspace to avoid entering them all into Bandize.
  • Import existing contacts from Outlook, Apple Address Book, Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, CSV, and vCard.
  • Ability to download and print a PDF day sheet and/or tour book.
  • ICS calendar feed for syncing dates from Bandize to Google Calendar, iCal, Entourage, Outlook, etc.
  • Email integration using BCC to auto
    associate and notate external emails with existing Bandize contacts
    (basically a log of conversations without having to manually log them
    in Bandize).

Looks like a great service every band should check out for better organization and efficiency. Check it out!
