The Zonat system is accessible from anywhere via the web and is very easy to use. It allows me to customise exactly what my customers and staff hear in-store. There are a great selection of prearranged playlists to chose from and the scheduling is very flexible. We play easy listening in the morning, the latest chart hits in the afternoon and dance music later in the night to motivate staff when stacking the selves! You can also create custom lists from the huge selection of music in the music manager. The advertising feature has allowed me to advertise much more effectively in-store because of the quick turnaround in recording our own custom ads and the current franchise ads are available automatically scheduled. Editing the advertising schedule is as easy as a couple of clicks and an advertising campaign conceived in the morning can be playing in-store later that afternoon. This enables us to target specific products and areas when we need to. Another advantage is that I can choose the frequency of each ad in each zone. Almotech as a company are fast, friendly, efficient and deliver exactly what they say they can. Support and training in how to use the system has been excellent. The Zonat is the best in-store radio system I seen or even heard about. Coming from an IT background I am greatly impressed with the implementation of both hardware and software. It is a great system that I have no hesitation recommending to any retailer."
Using the Zonat has taken the guess-work out of choosing music for us. Now using their pre-defined playlists we have more time to concentrate on important areas. With the help of Almotech we are now in a position to produce our own local advertisements for in-store use. We provide the special offers and Almotech will take care of the scripting, music and recording. The customisation of these ads is a great advantage to us. Different areas and different products can be targeted at specific times. This has helped us to increase sales on particular products. Being able to control all of this from the office, the home or anywhere with an internet connection is a leap forward in technology for us. The customer and technical support provided by Almotech has been excellent in helping us to adapt to our new in-store system. These are important ingredients in helping us to achieve our targets.
I moved to Almotech in December 2011. I have found everyone in Almotech to be eager to make the system work for me. I used the in store tannoy messaging a lot. The biggest benefit I have found is the flexibility I now have in pre-recording future messages. With the system I have start and finish dates, so my messages match my promotions. I would recommend Almotech highly.
