Long synonymous with elevator music, Muzak systems now offer a range of stations that play genres ranging from party music to contemporary rock and smooth jazz. Store managers may install Muzak systems in their stores to play music that creates a desired ambiance without having to change CDs or listen to annoying ads and talk. Managers can control Muzak schedules online, preventing store employees from playing their personal music or changing stations during unsupervised periods. After logging into an online system, managers can change music schedules at any time if they or their customers get tired of a particular station.
Log in to the Muzak system’s online control suite available through the official Muzak website. Use the login name and password provided with your purchase. If you forgot your login information, contact Muzak customer service for help.
