The Top 5 Things Every Recording Studio Needs...
Thursday, 6 April 2017 | Codelocks Marketing
A recording studio can be a musician's sanctuary, a technical hot spot and a fantastic business opportunity. The management of a studio can be a daunting prospect but can reap high rewards.
Check out the top 5 things that we think every recording studio needs...
|User friendly booking applications are vital in forming a loyal band of customers. With booking options available at a touch of a button – how can people refuse? || |
|With many different people using your studios and rehearsal spaces at various times, access control is paramount. A way to manage this is to use self-service smart locks, which allows time-sensitive codes to be distributed to visiting musicians that grant them access to a specific room within a designated timeslot. || |
Why not integrate your booking system with your access control? This means that customers will receive their unique code within their allocated timeslot along with their booking confirmation.
|Offering flexibility is essential, as you should be able to accommodate for customer delays with minimal detriment to your business. If your customer is running a little late, why not offer them flexibility by introducing a grace period either side of their booking? If you have decided to install the self-service locks, there is no need for onsite staff and your customers are sure to thank you for the extra 'wiggle room'! || |
|Every studio needs records... but not just the musical kind! Keeping logs of who is using your studios allows you to build up a database which you can analyse to spot trends and anomalies. It can also be used as a reference, should you encounter any problems or damaged equipment. || |
Basic economics dictates the following formula that every business is subject to:
REVENUE - COSTS = PROFIT
When it comes to maximising your profits, your aim is to reduce costs and increase revenue. Smart technology allows you to keep costs low and in turn offer a competitive pricing strategy that may give you the edge to attract more revenue.
Codelocks and Pirate Studios collaborate
Innovative start-up Pirate Studios were looking for locks that allow musicians self-service access to recording studios and associated locker rentals, at allotted times. Codelocks provided the solution with the CL5510 smart lock, which enables time-specific codes to be created via an online portal and sent remotely via SMS or email.

The new SMART lock CL5510 makes access control easier, offering flexibility and convenience by providing a range of entry methods including the use of pushbutton code, smart card or smartphone.
It utilises wireless technology to give building managers the ability to program locks via a smartphone, generate and send entry codes for easy access and issue smart cards for alternative entry.
