Moving Forwards on Our Own: New MAV Technology and App

Throughout the beginning of the year, in collaboration with our manufacturers in Sheffield, MAV were developing new hardware and software, working together to create our own music player, user interface and catalogue stuffed with our favourite tunes. From this we could curate, send, develop and schedule for our clients on an independent basis for the first time.

The new boxes follow in the MAV spirit of the hardware being an out of mind, out of sight music solution, which will play to a pre-set schedule throughout the day, and the new box has improved Wi-Fi connectivity in addition to a sleek custom look. Of course, we also had to ensure they were safe, fully licensed, and could travel to our varying abroad sites too!

When restrictions were dropped in the passage between April and July, we successfully rolled out over 400 pieces of new hardware to our clients, and a new mobile application followed. The new application – MAV Control – allows for greater control than ever before for our clients. It gives them access to volume control, changing playlists depending on mood, visibility to the recent logs of the music profile – so they can see what that smashing new tune is – as well as multiple other useful features.

This was an immensely gratifying process, as we designed and developed something tailored to the MAV brand and requirements of the team. MAV can now run its business independently, allowing for improved freedom and flexibility of trade.
