Personalisation is the essence of what we deliver. Not one thing soundjack does is “standard”, from creating curated playlists for every customer to creating an app where users can make their own musical choices. 

The web-accessed dashboard allows every playlist to be amended based on data from users. This enables you to refine and improve the connection between your customers and your business or brand.
