RTI has partnered with SoundMachine, a leading business music subscription service, to provide integrators deploying the RTI Music streaming audio system, recurring monthly revenue opportunities using SoundMachine’s fully-licenced, cloud-based music service.RTI dealers can use this solution to sell and monetize fully licensed music services (ASCAP, BMI, SESAC, SOCAN, RE-SOUND, and Global Music Rights) in restaurants, bars, hotels, and other commercial settings.
“Music is an integral part of the business atmosphere, engaging customers in a meaningful way and encouraging repeat visits,” said Neal Ellsworth, Director of Product Management, RTI. “The RTI Music integration with SoundMachine makes it easy for integrators to create memorable customer experiences with a trusted, cloud-based licensed music service and then participate in the ongoing revenue stream”, added Ellsworth.
SoundMachine makes it simple to play fully-licenced music to engage customers in retail, restaurants, hospitality, and other settings. The Business Plan and the Business Premium plan are two service tiers that RTI dealers can provide to their customers. Over 100 playlists with a variety of style settings, pre-programmed personalised announcements, various sources within one location, several locations with one central account, and an annual prepaid subscription with discounts and no contracts are all available with the Business Plan.
The Business Premium package includes over 500 playlists and is able to import playlists from Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, and other services. RTI dealers will receive 10% of service subscription fees, allowing the dealers to generate recurring revenue for their businesses.
RTI Music combines music streaming control with TV, lighting, shades, climate, security directly from the control and automation system environment. This seamless integration eliminates the need to leave the control app to find music or navigate a playlist. As a result, employees can concentrate on the customer experience rather than the technology. RTI Music’s various continuous streams allow different areas of the business to stream distinct playlists, all of which are fully licenced through SoundMachine.
“Ultimately, our goal is to create the best possible user experience for businesses and their customers,” said SoundMachine CEO Matteo Luppi. “The RTI control integration does precisely that while providing RTI dealers with a new recurring revenue stream”, added Luppi.
