SoundMachine Partners with Bogen Communications for Integration into New Commercial Communications System, Easing Adoption of Music Subscription Service for Businesses

May 29, 2018 – SoundMachine, the premier music subscription service for business, has been integrated into Bogen Communication’s new C4000 solution, a new IP-based communications system optimized for commercial paging and audio distribution. C4000 helps small and large companies with their unique communication needs, and the integration with SoundMachine will allow businesses using the system to easily connect to the service and fill their locations with music selections fine-tuned to their brand.

The C4000 solution, which follows on the heels of Bogen’s award-winning education-focused E7000 system, allows businesses, industrial facilities, transportation hubs, retailers, restaurants, bars, and more to set up a state-of-the-art communications system throughout their physical locations, giving them the ability to make live pages, schedule announcements, play music, and otherwise communicate effectively throughout their facility – both indoors and outdoors, regardless of size. With SoundMachine access embedded on every C4000 system, these companies will have the ability to craft a seamless, engaging, and on-brand music experience.

SoundMachine provides full licensing for Public Performance within a client’s business environment in the U.S. (via ASCAP, BMI, SESAC, and SoundExchange) and Canada (via SOCAN and RE:SOUND), with clients receiving access to professionally curated stations that can be mixed to create the perfect audio atmosphere. They can then pre-schedule those customized mixes to match the mood throughout the day or week. Users can also upload promotional messages to play at scheduled intervals or exact times along with the music, and SoundMachine’s top-down content management system allows users to link an unlimited number of locations or users to one account, making operating music and promotional messages a breeze for chains. SoundMachine also recently introduced a new subscription tier titled Business Premium powered by Napster, which allows users to create an even more personalized sound with custom playlists starting from an artist or song, as well as hundreds of Napster’s own curated stations. SoundMachine can also create custom playlists designed specifically for individual companies.

“SoundMachine’s goal has always been to make the lives of our business customers as seamless as possible, and our integration with Bogen’s C4000 system is a leap in that direction,” said Matteo Luppi, CEO of SoundMachine. “Small and large businesses now have the opportunity to service their communication and music needs in one clean, easy-to-use device.”

“This integration gives our C4000 solution an edge over our competitors — the ability to help our customers improve their brand through professionally curated music and customized promotional messages in a convenient fashion,” said John Minnick, VP of Product Development for Bogen Communications.
