Carmel, Indiana – A new technology built to help fraternities and sororities recruit higher quantities of higher quality people was launched to the public today. The software — called ChapterBuilder — already has over 100,000 potential new members flowing through the system thanks to nearly 1000 active chapters already utilizing the software during its pre-launch phase. Today ChapterBuilder is available to all fraternities and sororities who want a simple yet sophisticated Names List tool to manage year-round, values-based recruitment.

 

TechniPhi, a company focused on sharing the life-changing gift of Greek Life with more high quality people, “soft launched” ChapterBuilder in 2013. Five semesters of testing and upgrading the software have provided a base of raving fans and evidence that the tool is ready to become the standard for every fraternity/sorority chapter in the world.

 

BEGINNER VERSION AVAILABLE FOR FREE

 

There is no barrier to entry. “The beginner version of ChapterBuilder does everything a Google spreadsheet does and more, and it’s 100% FREE. $0 dollars. No catch.” This from Josh Orendi, a founder of TechniPhi. “This is our gift to the industry.” The standard version of ChapterBuilder costs $500 and is by far the most technologically advanced tool the fraternity/sorority world has ever seen.Orendi continued, “Most organizations are telling us they’ll see a return on their investment in the standard version of ChapterBuilder if it helps them add just 1 or 2 new members.”

 

Interested fraternities or sororities should visit www.ChapterBuilder.com for a demo.

 

ChapterBuilder is a tool to manage the relationship between potential members and the chapter. The software is a web-based system usable by any chapter member, consultant, or advisor, anywhere in the world. ChapterBuilder is accessible on any computer, tablet, or phone with an internet connection (an app is available from the Android or Apple app stores).

 

Orendi shared in a statement from the company, “This technology is long overdue. Every professional industry in the world — sales, marketing, nonprofit, fundraising, military, political campaigns — they all use customer relationship management (CRM) software specific to their audience. There is nothing new about TechniPhi’s approach. What is new is that fraternity/sorority recruitment experts have created custom software specifically for fraternity/sorority chapters with features that have never been available until now. It’s crazy to think that we expect our undergraduates to recruit the best of the best on their campus from an Excel or Google spreadsheet. Spreadsheets are dead!”

 

Orendi continued, “I find myself reminding even our most seasoned Greek Life leaders that we are an industry of 9 million members, nearly a million top undergraduate leaders, hundreds of millions of dollars of revenue, many of the most capable leaders on the planet who want nothing more than to make their chapters great … and we’ve been expecting them to do it with a rush week sign up sheet. We have the technology now.”

 

Over 40 Inter/national fraternity and sorority headquarters have committed to join TechniPhi for the August 2015 launch of ChapterBuilder. Dozens of campus partners are lining up to pilot the council version of ChapterBuilder this fall.

 

BENEFITS PLENTIFUL: QUALITY MEMBERSHIP, VALUABLE LIFE SKILLS

 

Jessica Gendron Williams, CEO of TechniPhi and its sister companies Innova and Phired Up Productions, said, “We are not a technology company trying to figure out recruitment. We are a team of recruitment experts bringing the best technology in the world to fraternity/sorority.” She continued, “It would be a mistake to only view ChapterBuilder as recruitment software to make chapters bigger.ChapterBuilder can make chapters safer, more selective, and more inclusive….  ChapterBuilder lowers risks associated with traditional rush. It is a tool to shape year-round, values-based recruitment. ChapterBuilder puts relationships first and places values front and center in recruitment.

 

“My biggest surprise going into this fall has come from Executive Directors of the national organizations.” Said David Lecko, the software’s lead programmer, “Consistently we’re hearing them tell us that they appreciate that ROI of ChapterBuilder by adding quantity of members, but they are far more interested the software’s innovations that are making quality control available for the first time.”

 

“Fraternity/sorority alumni leaders from outside the bubble of higher education are giving us consistent feedback that this is a no-brainer,” said Orendi. “Most are already using a CRM tool in their workplace and volunteer roles outside of Greek Life. They are telling us they can’t believe this didn’t already exist and that they’re thrilled to see that undergraduates are learning how to use a system/software that mirrors what they’ll be expected to know in their future careers.”

 

Early users of ChapterBuilder are raving about simplicity and ease of use. Communication tools like personalized bulk texting/emailing, social media integration, mobile ready app, virtual coach that lives inside the software, customizations, and advanced analytics are all poised to shake up the way recruitment has been done by Greek organizations for decades.
