Managed 4U

Music4Uonline can offer utter simplicity if required. At its most basic, no further input is required from you after sign-up. You can simply leave it to play: 'set and forget'.

When you sign up, you will be asked to select your business type, e.g. 'Traditional Hotel', 'Contemporary Restaurant', 'City Centre Bar' etc. Our studio team use their knowledge of the different types of venue to compile 'default playlists'. The system will assign you the correct playlist for your business type.

Your machine will automatically collect updates at least once a month. This means that your music will stay up-to-date without any input from you.

The 'default playlists' are based on a standard customer profile for each business type. They may not be suitable if you have an unusual mix of customers or non-standard trading patterns. If this is the case, you have a couple of options. You could choose your own music for no extra cost (see ManagedByU). Alternatively, we could provide tailored playlists (see Customised4U). The latter will incur a profiling fee.

Even if you plan to manage your own music, Managed4U can be a good place to start. It will give you time to get to grips with the system without needing to learn the profiling tools. You can then easily upgrade to 'ManagedByU' once you are ready. Managed4U and ManagedByU cost the same, so your fee will not change when you upgrade.

Getting Started

Getting your music with a Managed4U account couldn't be easier:

  1. Sign-up and select your business type
    When you sign-up, you will be shown a list. You will be asked to select the type of business most similar to your own. This will automatically provide you with the correct playlist for your venue type.
  2. Connect your PC to the Internet and download the software
    When you first log in to your new account, you will be guided through our easy software download process. If you buy a machine directly from us (rather than using your own PC), the software will be pre-loaded.
  3. Connect your PC to the Sound System and start the player
    When you start the player, it will begin downloading music. It will start to play as soon as it has collected two tracks. The download will continue until the player has all of its music.

Unless you want to get more involved, the player should need no further input from you or your staff. You can control the volume using the normal controls on your sound system.

If you don't have broadband, don't worry - ask about our CD-updated musicPro systems.
