The Benefits of a Personal PA System

By | Business, Churches, Dining, Education, Fashion, Fitness Centers, Hearing Assistance, Music, Restaurants, Sports Bars, streaming, Tour Guides, Waiting Rooms | No Comments

Whether you’re a factory manager, a tour guide, a minister or a sports bar manager, you understand the importance of keeping your people happy. Information is today’s currency, and there is so much of it, coming so quickly, that being able to convey and understand critical information is of top importance.

Communication is essential, whether between your business and employees, or your clientele. This can mean different things depending on your business; saving time, eliminating distractions or simply providing an impeccable experience. Whatever your goals are, an audio streaming solution could help you get there faster.

Have you ever presented at a business conference in a cavernous lecture hall or noisy convention center? How much time is spent trying to get the microphone or AV system working and repeating Q&A responses so that people in every corner of the room can hear? What if you could take advantage of smart phone technology, and everyone could stream audio from your presentation in real-time? You wouldn’t be competing with conversation in the back of the room, noise from the hall, or general din of a busy convention center. Your presentation just became more productive and efficient.

Maybe you’re expanding your business and need to train employees at your new location, but last-minute installation and finishing are still going on. If you used a personal PA system with built in wifi, your new team could follow you around the store, warehouse, or office without worrying about the distraction or disruption of the other work going on. Your employees will be trained in less time, saving you money.

Construction sites and factory floors are notoriously loud. Bring in new people or guide investors around the site and have a productive conversation despite all that’s going on. You will know they aren’t missing any of the important points.

Maybe you work with the public – education, fitness instruction, giving tours at a local museum or botanical garden, auctioneering, hosting book club at the library, guiding field trips through a nature preserve or historical site. Streaming your instruction will give your students and clients a better, deeper experience without interrupting or distracting others, and maybe even save your voice.

Does your church serve the hearing impaired? Let them listen in real-time with personal PA technology. Do you have a cry room or nursery separate from the sanctuary? Mothers and caretakers can keep up on the sermon without waking the babies. You can tend your flock in a way that meets their needs.

Additionally, you’re not limited to streaming your own voice. Maybe your business or agency would benefit from streaming music, or pertinent content. Anxious patients in the waiting room? They can stream soothing music. Bored citizens waiting for their number at the DMV? Offer audio from TVs mounted throughout the room, or a review of traffic laws while they wait.

Perhaps you want to provide some of the benefits of music to your employees, without allowing a free-for-all when it comes to internet streaming. This technology can offer a variety of options, pre-selected by you or your management team.

If this is something that would help your business increase productivity and efficiency, or create happier, more satisfied clients, Fetch Express is one option to consider. Contact us at AudioFetch for more information.

Creating a More Family-Friendly Environment

By | Dining, Restaurants, Sports Bars | No Comments

Let’s face it. Sometimes public places and kids don’t mix. We’ve all been there. Maybe you’re the unsuspecting diner enjoying a peaceful night out, when suddenly you’re ambushed by a screaming child running up and down the aisle. Maybe, alas, you’re the parent of said lovable munchkin, cringing in embarrassment. Or maybe you’re the owner of the establishment, wondering what you can do to scale your atmosphere back to normal. Sometimes, it’s just one of those days.

But don’t worry. AudioFetch has you covered.

The great thing about AudioFetch is that it allows users to tune in to any of the televisions on the premise, so even if most of your base is cheering the game, you can still put a cartoon on a different set for the kids in the crowd. This can go a long way in helping to build a more family-friendly environment at your establishment.

This can come in useful in a variety of ways for your customers. Maybe their children are having a bad night, won’t settle down, and, normally, the family would have to leave. But with AudioFetch, they can catch the kids’ attention with their favorite cartoon, get them to stay in their seats, and dial the energy-level down a notch.

Or maybe the parents are hosting some friends and family from out-of-town and couldn’t get a babysitter. The adult conversation might bore the heck out of the kids, but put a movie on for them, and everyone at the table can have a good time, parents and kids included.

Whatever your customer’s situation might be, having AudioFetch in your arsenal offers a great solution for those with children. If you’re interested in all the ways AudioFetch can improve the experience for your clientele, just contact us and we’ll get you set up.
