Retail Music Systems With On-Screen Advertising In NZ
Need music for your Retail Store, Shop, Hyper store or Shopping Mall? AMS delivers solutions throughout New Zealand for retail.
AC Nielsen shows 95% of shoppers buy something extra during a store visit and over 80% of purchase decisions are made while the customers are in store. With an AMS Music System, our On-Screen Advertising solutions and In-Store Advertising can help you influence your customers buying decisions while they're shopping. In addition the right music will help make sure customers are in the right frame of mind. Music will also will help your customers feel relaxed and more likely to spend more time in store.
In-store commercials can also back up your other forms of advertising and promotions. It can also prompt your customers or remind them of that item they saw in the mailer or heard about elsewhere.
While many in retail simply play the local radio station for music or use CD’s, which in many cases are chosen by staff, more and more are seeing in-store radio with or without commercials as a way of setting the scene or working with the ‘feel’ of the brand. Playing the radio can be fraught with danger, what if your competitor’s commercial is playing in your store on the station your customers are listening to? If your staff are choosing the music can you be sure it's what is appropriate for your store(s)?

Set The Right Mood
Captivate Them With Our Music!
Music is the key to keeping your customers relaxed and in the right frame of mind to purchase more.
At AMS we have a huge range of music and an unlimited number of songs on our music systems from a library of over 140,000 (and growing!), carefully selected audio, video and karaoke tracks. It’s not often that we are asked for something we don’t have, or can't get. Every system has over 120+ pre-made categories & genres. We give you the ability to schedule the lot to play when you want without touching a thing, and to manually create and generate play lists. This means you get the right music, at the right time, when you want it.
We will consult with you to get the music mix that works best for you. From there we will fine tune what music is on the system. We are also happy to look at what you have at present, CD’s etc. Each audio system is delivered with at least 48,000 initial songs. All of our new tracks are supplied direct from the record companies.
Our audio, music video and karaoke tracks are some of the highest quality in the business. Much of our back catalogue music video tracks have had their audio re-mastered and we pride ourselves on quality.
Maximising Customer Spend On-Premise
On-Screen Images & Commercials
Let’s face it, point of sale promotional material has been around for years. This sort of advertising works, however the old paper and cardboard is a thing of the past. The good news is that our software has the ability to play On-Screen Commercials. This is a great way to do away with paper or cardboard posters and increase your revenue by selling the space at your place!
You can use still Jpeg images like photo’s or Mpeg - moving commercials as seen on DVD’s or your digital camera. AMS supplies a wide range of image templates for almost any occasion, that can be easily edited directly on our machines. We also have a large range of images from both of the main breweries. All of this is available to you free of charge.

Unlimited Music Updates
Music updates are not limited to 'x' number of tracks per month, or a chosen 'style' (ie, you don't only get one update disc per month of say, rock or pop songs). Our monthly/quarterly music updates are extensive, basically you get everything new that we've added since your last update. Only AMS deliver UNLIMITED updates.
Control Via Touch Screen, Smartphones/iPhones or POS Till System
Our software is touch screen capable. This can be achieved in two ways. You can access our software via your POS till screens or we can supply a touch screen dedicated for the music system.
Whats more you can also control your AMS Music Video System with your iPhone, iTouch, Android phone, laptop or even a good old fashioned infrared remote control.
Schedule Your Music
If you want to have the system generate a play list at specific times of the day like, 10am - Easy Listening, 12 midday – Jazz etc, then this can be set up to automatically happen at the right time. AMS’s music scheduling and play list generation is incredibly powerful. You can create a play list and avoid playing the same artist and/or song in a set time frame like 1 hour.
Remote Access To Your AMS System Via The Internet
Because our music systems are connected to the internet you also have full remote access to the music computer from almost any internet connected device in the world, including your laptop, iPhone, iTouch or Android phone. With this remote access you can fully control your AMS Music System as if you were there, and of course check that what you want being played, is being played.
Maintaining A Consistent Volume Level
CD’s and the like differ in volume level from song to song/CD to CD. The same applies to most MP3 players. This means you have to adjust the volume of your amplifier regularly. All AMS Music & Music Video Systems come with a compressor and limiter built into our software. This means the volume is always kept at a constant level - similar to most radio stations. The only time you turn it up or down is to adjust the sound level you want at the time.
What's Been Played? Logging
To ensure your staff are playing the music they should be the system keeps daily logs of every song ever played and the time it was played. The logs can be e-mailed to you.
Easy Music Search
Searching for songs or an album couldn't be easier. You can search by title, artist or album or part of either. In the example below we have typed in ‘Rolling’ everything in the system with ‘Rolling’ in will appear in the search window. Once you have found what you want simply drag and drop the track into the play list to have it play. You can also use the 120+ categories to choose songs from. Easy.
Quality Computer Hardware
At AMS we use, recommend, lease and sell ONLY quality HP computers and hardware. This is simply because we get the back up and service from HP we expect for our customers. As a result you can expect your music PC to be reliable, if there are any issues, we'll swap it out!
Due to licensing regulation from APRA and PPNZ Music Licensing we cannot outright sell you the music, we lease it to you. We give you the option of buying the computer hardware required or leasing it. Lease terms are typically 24 or 36 months.
Regardless of who you get your music from, be it an MSP (Music Service Provider) like AMS, CD's or Sky you still need to hold a Public Performance Licence from APRA/AMCOS AND PPNZ Music Licensing. Choose an AMS Music or Music Video System and get a 10% discount from PPNZ Music Licensing. If you're also a HANZ Member then you get a 10% discount from APRA.
If you have more than one area (zone) in a premise that you require different music for, like upstairs and downstairs, no problem! You can have up to 4 zones on one PC at no extra cost!
