Sonos has announced Sonos Pro, a new flexible software as a service (SaaS) offering that makes it easy for businesses to deliver great sound across each of their locations. A new product category for Sonos, the subscription-based offering includes a simple dashboard to remotely manage a system across multiple locations, commercially-licensed music, personalised support, and more. The service is said to work “seamlessly” with a business’ existing Sonos hardware to fill any space with immersive sound. Sonos Pro is available in the United States, with additional markets to follow.
“As consumers return to brick-and-mortar, retail stores and restaurants are leveraging music, visuals and scents to create a sensory in-store experience that builds an emotional connection with customers,” said Patrick Spence, CEO of Sonos. “We’ve seen incredible organic growth for Sonos in commercial spaces as businesses invest in sound solutions to engage customers, which presents a huge opportunity for us. After testing different features in hundreds of business locations to better understand the needs of businesses and the complexities of commercial audio, we’re proud to deliver a simple solution that was designed from the ground up to meet the needs of this audience.”
Sonos uniquely delivers a powerful SaaS offering for businesses alongside its industry-leading hardware. Typical audio solutions for businesses require a complex set of products and tools, but now businesses can streamline their sound with Sonos Pro.
“Music is the foundation for creating ambiance and keeping customers coming back for more,” said Audra Kinsley, VP and GM of Sonos Professional. “Sonos Pro was designed to make it easy for brands to reinforce their vision and lifestyle through sound, with tools to curate content and create distinct sound experiences that resonate with customers.”
Sonos Pro is available for $35 / month per location in the US.
