An internet-based audio delivery service is a simple, accessible and affordable way to deliver timely, targeted audio directly to smartphones, PCs and any other connected device.

FlashCASTs are audio messages in file form that cycle continuously. You produce and keep FlashCASTs current with upload software from a control location(s). In an emergency, should you lose your internet connection or physical access to your operations center, we can assist you with making message updates.

StreamCASTs allow you to link your audience to a continuously repeating streamed program, such as the broadcast program of an information radio station or the play-by-play of a live event. We provide the network audio interface hardware that allows you to make the physical connection to the Internet. The monthly service currently supports 100 simultaneous streams and expands automatically, if required, due to a sudden emergency or a special event. (*)

FlashCASTs and StreamCASTs are generally accessed from a webpage where you present viewers a link to click. Of course you can also email or text that link directly to potential listeners in an emergency or anytime there is an update.

Both styles may be full production, including music, and may be sponsored, making the service revenue-neutral – or even profitable – for you, the operator.

Ask Alexa for Access  .  .  .    

With this option, the general public can access your FlashCASTs and StreamCASTS via Amazon’s Alexa attendant from any enabled smartspeaker device and/or by putting a link on your webpage or in an email, text or social media communication. This provides a new way to speak to listeners in the privacy and convenience of their homes or offices.

Try these examples from a smartspeaker:

“Alexa, Open Current Information for Allen County COVID Test Site.”

“Alexa, Open Current Information for Lexington Emergency Management.”
"" Web Address for Signs

If you will be using signage to tell people how to access your audio, an easy web address is the key. Ask us to provide a “” address, connected to your StreamCAST or FlashCAST link, so they can key it into their portable device with ease.
Ask for a Quote  .  .  .    

Email or call (616.772.2300, extension 102). We can answer questions and help you plan. We will provide a formal quote based on your audience's needs.

(*) Unlimited connections are allowed, so no one is ever denied access to the stream - even during major events or emergencies. We offer SSL Stream Encryption service if needed.
