Our tech

All of the best tech is both powerful and effortless, right? We think so too. That’s why we’ve built a stress free plug-in-and-go solution.

We do all of the hard work for you, so once you’ve connected to your network and amplifier you’ll have the full power of Studio - our atmosphere curation platform - at your fingertips. Studio is a flexible, ultra-reliable and cloud hosted software platform that's designed to manage the consistency (and quirks) across a whole retail or hospitality estate.

Whether you’re after full atmospheric control or hands free management, our lightweight, eco-friendly hardware and industry-leading software have got your back.

Startle has proved to be the perfect partner for Pizza Pilgrims, embracing all of our ideas for using music and technology to enhance our pizzerias. Our playlist management has improved massively, but the custom integrations we've been able to build in are the most exciting part. On top of this, the support we receive is super responsive and I know we can rely on the Startle team for quick, 1-to-1 help whenever we need it.
