Within 1.4 nanoseconds of stepping into your store, customers are making decisions about your brand based on the tunes that they hear.
Activaire will boost your customer experience with music that’s authentic to your brand’s DNA. You’ll have measurably longer dwell times and increased sales.
Music for Shops that’s unbelievably simple with unbeatable service.
Expertly curated music works in harmony with your business.
We combine science, art, and a deep understanding of your business to create unique, personalized soundtracks, updated weekly with fresh and relevant sounds.
You can match your audio to the ambiance of the moment, too: as the spaces in your hotel change dynamic, you can switch music scenes to suit.
It’s your brand, perfectly in tune.
Auto, or Control?
You want your in-store staff to focus on selling, rather than worrying about what music’s playing, right?
In our experience, fashion retailers trust us to curate their schedules centrally, which we only adapt when HQ authorizes a change in direction. But some retailers are different, giving staff agency to switch through the playlists and scenes we’ve created for your brand.
Either way, we’ll confirm access control when we set you up.
We’ll ensure your team has appropriate access to the system.
If local control is enabled, your store staff can manage the music program in their branch, while brand managers can access the zones of multiple properties or the entire portfolio if needed.
Our expert music curators consult with you to create customized schedules that authentically tell your brand’s story.
Your schedule will dynamically adjust musical styles and energy throughout the days and weeks. We also take in different regional tastes, the changing fashion seasons, and – of course – the latest trends.
Having the correct license for the music you play, in the territories you operate across, is critical. It’s complicated, too.
But don’t sweat it: we’ve got your back. Every track we deliver is licensed and legal. We cover ASCAP, BMI, SESAC, GMR, and SoundExchange in the US, with the licensing costs included in your monthly fee.
For the rest of the world, it varies. As we operate in 43 countries, we can advise on the varying licensing prices in different regions. Simple.
Plug & Play
Let’s make this easy.
All you need to have our expertly curated music flow through your shop is one box, power, a network connection (preferably wired), and your in-house audio system.
And if you feel like stepping up to the decks yourself, our intuitive smartphone app will let you take control of the vibe, too.
Silence isn’t golden; it sucks. That’s why we provide zero fuss 24-hour support to keep your hotel sounding great.
If you need help, drop us an email, or – better still – give us a call. We can troubleshoot remotely, and most of the time, we’ll have you back up and running in a flash.
If we can’t fix the problem online, we’ll send a replacement on the same working day. Or, if it needs a technician, we’ll get one to you as soon as we can.
Your pocket sized music maestro.
Mixtapes, made for your brand
Our expert music curators always create new playlists that fit our clients’ needs, and the lovely people who use their spaces, too.
If you have local control enabled, you can use playlists to react to a change in your environment with a musical shift, tailored to the moment.
Having an in-store event or an unexpected rush of customers and need to turn things up? We provide a curated list of playlists for moments just these.
Perfect sounds: Perfect spaces
When you walk into a sports retailer, you want the excitement of being at a game; bright lights, applause and an electric atmosphere. In a bookstore, you expect a sophisticated experience that’s quiet, yet considered, interesting and poetic.
Finding music that matches is simple with Curator; you can quickly select scenes that combine playlists, setting up perfect sonic environments in every zone you have.
Whatever your audience, an ideal scene is just a tap away.
We are extremely satisfied with Activaire. They cater playlists to our liking while maintaining a close relationship with our team.
Each zone allows us to play taste made music for events and our guests. Their highly trained staff gives us undivided attention and quality, ample selection to choose from.
