|What is Scrobbling? : Scrobbling a song means that when you listen to it, the name of the song is sent to SoundLeisure's profile page on Last.fm. This allows us to cross reference what other users are listening too and use this to suggest other music of a similar taste. It also gives us a count of how many tracks are being listened to across the Uk via our VenueHub jukeboxes.
|The best jukebox ever, says Sittingbourne Sports Bar
The Venue-Hub jukebox is living up to its name at the Sittingbourne Sports Bar, where it is played non-stop.
Manager Kris Forshaw has found that his customers flock to the jukebox, particularly for video, which counts for 9 out of 10 selections. “We have a total of four plasma screens showing the video content and customers are always selecting the latest titles, so having such regular updates keeps them coming back time after time,” he says.
“I am confident we are the only location locally offering a video jukebox and I have now dropped booking a DJ for the weekends, due to the popularity of the V-Hub.”
Despite the many features of the V-Hub, Kris says his customers took to it readily. “Since installation it has played non-stop. Many of my customers say that it is similar to using an iPhone or iPad as they use the same swiping motion.”
Kris also uses the jukebox to post pictures taken during events held at the bar. “When we have special event nights such as our recent Rodeo night, I upload photos of everyone so they come back another day to see if they have been caught on camera. This has been a great way of getting as many people as possible in front of the jukebox who then may make a selection. I honestly think this is the best jukebox I have ever seen.”
Operator Jason Jarrett from Automatic Machine Services, based in Kent, is also thrilled with the success of the Venue-Hub and says, “Kris has a great venue here and as soon as the potential was realised, we upgraded him to a Venue Hub AV to maximise not only the cashbox but also his customers’ experience. The results have been fantastic with an-uplift in takings of around 80%!”
“At AMS, we are always keen to embrace new technology and provide the best support to our customers. This AV model really is something special offering every Top 10 Video since 1980 as well as all the Top 40 audio tracks since 1952 plus the 7 million track database from Sound Net which is available on-line within seconds,” he adds.
