You may think that your customers’ buying habits are shaped entirely by their personality; choosing a garment as it is their favourite colour, selecting a dessert with chocolate as that is their favourite sweet thing, but they are often just as likely, if not more so, to be influenced by the context they are in.
A recent survey of over 15,000 consumers placed ‘experience’ at the heart of retail, with 81% of respondents saying they’d pay more for it.
It’s increasingly common for businesses, particularly those with fewer sites, to lean towards ‘hardware-lite’ music solutions with the plug-in-and-go wireless options frequently being chosen to play background music. With Sonos being a strong crowd-favourite, we’ve developed our software to effortlessly sync up with any Sonos speakers in use at each site.
Our new user platform, Studio, gives clients the power to replicate a perfectly curated atmosphere across an entire estate. It also includes a new cutting-edge and world-first innovation that reports live to the user how to boost customer experience in the moment and lower the carbon footprint of each site over the long term. The new feature is called Tune-Up™.

Hundreds of pubs expected to roll up to claim their free month of Rock and Roll Bingo. After launching our Rock and Roll Bingo giveaway, we’re delighted to see a strong industry response. The interest in the giveaway has sparked a flurry of new pubs signing up for Rock and Roll Bingo with hundreds of pubs across the UK expected to join the national celebratory game on Friday 21 May at 8pm as well as hosting games throughout their first month of indoor service.
We are pleased to have recently achieved the ISO 27001 certification as part of our ongoing focus on security. Whilst it’s not the most exciting part of what we do, it is extremely important to us and our customers.
Rock and Roll Bingo has become one of the on-trade’s favourite entertainments. The game is a proven traffic-builder that’s fun for customers of all ages to play and easy for pubs to host. Just as importantly for post-lockdown trading, it’s completely Covid-safe: customers play on their phones, at their table, with no need for a host in the pub, or pens and paper.
We’re thrilled to announce that Startle has partnered with Pizza Hut Delivery on a month-long takeover of our much-loved digital music game, Rock and Roll Bingo!
Pizza Pilgrims found the Simon to their Garfunkel as Startle Music gave them millions of tracks to enjoy and build their own playlists. With multi-site control from one account, they can now easily and simultaneously entertain the crowds in all their venues, ensuring a consistent atmosphere.
At Startle, we thrive off creating bespoke, innovative engagement experiences for brands. It’s what we do best. So we were very excited when Santander approached us to build a custom music experience for their brand new Work Café in Leeds - the first of its kind in the UK.
