Work Hard. Play Hard. The Surf is Always Up.
Unbound360 was built for a school. In fact, it was one of the very first clients of Admission Pro (more on that below) that was the spark that became the platform as we know it today. Following 15 years of work in education, it was a no-brainer to combine technology, admission and enrollment management knowledge, marketing insight and the needs of an ever-changing industry into Unbound360.
Simply put, our company is built on four very simple tenets:
- Educate - There are no college degrees for admission work. While there are great organizations out there who train admissions people on PROCESS, there aren't many resources to learn about DATA. We want everyone who encounters our platform to be better (and not afraid of) at working with data.
- Elevate - No matter how "good" or "big" your school is, we think you can always be better. If you aren't working ON your trade every day, your competition will eat your lunch. We want to make sure our users are out there killing it.
- Empower - We want admission and marketing professionals to have a better seat at the table. By having data and the answers to existential questions at their school, our users will have a greater stake in decision making as well as the use of valuable resources on campus.
- No Eeyores - We are a fun group, and we want all of our interactions to be fun. The work may be hard, but it doesn't have to be drudgery. We always value facilitators over complicators.
What started as a single file solution in 2018 morphed slowly into a larger farm of files that were custom built for each school on a platform that required extra work for installation and use. In 2021, we launched a fully web-based platform that allows all of our users to get in, do their work, and be effective regardless of their computer, operating system, or their working environment.
