BMS Announcement System
BMS is a software package that plays announcements. Install BMS on a central computer connected to the PA system to create a powerful hard disk audio player that fully automates the scheduling and mixing of your announcements.

This software integrates the complete set of audio automation and signal processing features into one application and can drive up to 16 separate zones in the largest business centers. By using off-the-shelf computer technology, this professional announcement solution is affordable for large and small businesses.

BMS is designed specifically for business announcements. The full list of features are designed to do exactly what you need to do, without the gimmics. Importantly BMS is easy to use. If you already have a Windows computer in your business, BMS can be installed and running within minutes offering your own 24/7 announcement service. The technical specifications of BMS follow but a quick way to test it is to just download and install it.
