Nightlife is Australia’s leading commercial music and entertainment supplier, delivering highly tailored media player solutions to clients, unlocking the potential of music in public places.
Nightlife’s main product used to be an android app that ran on an off-the-shelf device. The operating system limited the functionality they could deliver, the set-up was time-consuming, and a deployment taskforce had to install software and physically go to each site to maintain each device.
With over 3,500 clients in Australia, and recent expansion into America, Nightlife wanted to continue to expand their business, particularly into new sectors and global markets. They also wanted to improve their offerings and reduce their deployment and maintenance overheads, but the limitations of their system were making this difficult.
Nightlife chose meldCX as the platform to build apps for their AOPEN devices. This immediately delivered four clear benefits:
meldCX opened a direct line of communication with Google for them, helping them improve their entire development process, which meant they could develop and maintain apps more quickly and robustly.
meldCX are the masters of ChromeOS on AOPEN hardware, which has come about because of the strong working relationship they have with both. meldCX was in a way better position than we could ever be in to get bugs fixed, improvements developed and new features implemented.
Reduced resources: With remote management executed on meldCX’s dashboard, they’re using far fewer resources to manage their apps.
More apps deployed more quickly: They’re enjoying rapid deployment of their products, which means they can get more—and better—apps to market more quickly…it used to take about 45 minutes to configure an installation of their flagship product, crowdDJ, but now it takes just 45 seconds.
Business growth: With more time to focus on enhancing their partnerships and building new ones, they’ve secured a partnership with music streaming giant, Spotify. As a result, they’re using MeldCX to create a platform for consumers to select tracks from Spotify to play in gyms, event centres and restaurants, opening up new global markets for them.
meldCX has helped us accelerate how we reach our clients, and how we can deliver a service that will meet and exceed their needs.
