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.

New Richmond Area Centre Installs AudioFetch

By | AudioFetch News, Fitness Centers, streaming | No Comments

We hold a very high standard for customer service. While our products are easy to install, sometimes our clients still need some extra support to help with unrelated issues like wifi troubleshooting – and we are there for them! Our install at the New Richmond Area Centre was no exception.  With the slogan, “Health, Fitness and Fun for all ages,” the New Richmond Area Centre offers a variety of programming options for kids, families, teens and adults. With over 6000 members, AudioFetch was the perfect audio streaming solution for this dynamic community Centre, bustling with activity and audio tastes.

We sat down with Kayla Bertram, Workplace Wellness Manager at the New Richmond Area Centre to talk about the Centre’s experience with AudioFetch:

AudioFetch: What is the best part about being able to stream audio through the Centre? How does it benefit your team and your members?

Kayla Bertram: Members no longer have to rely on having a CardioVision attached to their machine and hoping that it works. There was a lot of confusion in our facility over the fact that you had to be moving the machine for the CardioVision to turn on  – with AudioFetch we no longer have to worry about adjusting the antennas to get the channels to come in clearly – they are all crystal clear and available right on the user’s device. For my team this means no more messing with CardioVisions to get them to work for members, and for members it means they will be able to listen to the TV (and hear it clearly) no matter which machine they choose.

AF: What has been the reception with AudioFetch at the Centre?

KB: Mostly it’s nice for me because I have less people complaining about the old system not working, and more [members] who are perfectly content with AudioFetch and no longer complain about the old system. Once a [member] has downloaded and successfully used AudioFetch – they seem content.

AF: What was your experience working with AudioFetch and installing the system? Can you briefly explain the WiFi issues and how AudioFetch helped to resolve them?

KB: I’m not a super nerd when it comes to technology, but I’d like to consider myself at least somewhat technologically inclined. So for me, set up was super simple. Pretty much plug and go. We did have some issues in the beginning getting AudioFetch to connect to our wifi and having to reset the system every single day. It was definitely a process to get it figured out, however Albert and Tim were INCREDIBLY helpful. These guys stand behind this product 100% and will do anything to help you get the problem fixed. I honestly cannot thank them enough for helping me through the process and getting everything to work like it should. We do not have an IT person at our facility so it was challenging for me to figure this out alone and Tim and Albert were able to help me get it up and running.

AudioFetch has solutions that are right for many different businesses. If you’d like to learn more about how we could help improve your customer and team experience, contact us.

5 Ways Local Audio Streaming Improves Your Guest’s Experience

By | Restaurants, Sports Bars | No Comments

Happy guests make for happy bar and restaurant owners. That’s because happy guests come back more often, and when they do, they spend 67% more than first-time customers. So how do you keep guests coming back (and ultimately spending more)? You might say by providing high quality of food and drinks at affordable prices. And you’d be right. But that’s not the full story. Guests are also looking for a comfortable environment for spending time with friends and family. They’re also looking for entertainment options, things that make dining out different than at home.

Local, live audio streaming provides both of these benefits, leaving customers more satisfied and increasing likelihood of repeat visits. Here are five ways that local audio streaming improves your guest’s experience.

1. Not Too Loud, Not Too Quiet

Local audio streaming is the Goldilocks of sports bar sound systems. They turn a guest’s phone into a personal listening device, allowing them to make the sound volume just right without inconveniencing other guests. Everyone wins!

2. A Little Something For Everyone

Speaking of everyone being winners, guests also have the option to choose their preferred game or program. Maybe Dad prefers football but Son likes hockey. Or Wife wants to watch the big game but Husband just wants to catch up on highlights from several sports. No more fighting over remotes!

3. More Productive Staff

When wait staff have to continually turn the sound up and down, turn TVs on and off, and flip through channels, they’re wasting time that could be spent taking orders, running food or checking on other customers. Local audio streaming systems put the power of sound in the customer’s hands, freeing your staff up to provide better service.

4. Family-Friendliness

Taking the family out to eat is a treat. A pleasant evening can quickly turn stressful, however, if the kids aren’t happy. Allowing kids to tune into a game or movie playing on a TV can help to extend that pleasant evening a little longer, making it a more enjoyable experience for the entire family.

5. Fantasy Sports Friendliness

People that play fantasy sports often have players on multiple real sports teams. With local audio streaming, they can easily switch from game to game see how each of their players is doing.

Offering your customers a unique and customize-able experience increases their satisfaction, and the likelihood that they’ll come back again and again.
