Since 2019 – WH Smith have now installed Audio Pro Business Systems in 30+ stores across the UK. The need for low-cost installation and the ability to adapt to the ever-changing retail environments made Audio Pro the prime choice.
With each site individually assessed and designed by our team the equipment can now be shipped direct to the install team and up and running in less than 1 hour (subject to site conditions of course!).
The speaker of choice was the SP-3 which installs directly onto the Lighting track with no need for mains power as each speaker is amplified. If, however the site doesn’t have tracks available they can be connected to the mains, which has been done in several stores. Wall brackets are provided in this event.
The transmitter connects to the audio source via phono or Cat5 (converted using Baluns) and the Volume Control is a wireless device which can be located anywhere in the store.
Music Streaming – Using a combination of the Axis Audio Bridge and Soundtrack your Brand the WH Smith specific music is streamed into each site with ease. The music and customer messaging at each site can then be controlled centrally or locally, however the client wants it.
Working with our clients and ensuring they get the best possible system at the best possible price has been key to this project. Reducing installation costs whilst upgrading the audio quality and flexibility has been the perfect mix for Aqord and the Client.
