Check out how OmniPlayer's partnership with HPE OEM became key to its business expansion


The scariest thing radio broadcasters will ever want face is “dead air”— that dreaded silence when an audio signal is interrupted. They need as much help as they can to keep broadcasting to their communities and avoid dead air. That is why the Dutch developer of market-leading radio automation software— OmniPlayer chooses HPE infrastructure. OmniPlayer delivers complete, ready-to-run solutions for its radio customers. Responsiveness is essential as solutions like OmniPlayer are at the heart of a broadcaster’s business. HPE OEM helps the OmniPlayer team accelerate solution delivery by providing pre-configured servers.

Through HPE OEM, OmniPlayer accelerates delivery of playout, logging, and monitoring solutions for radio broadcasters, leveraging preconfigured HPE ProLiant Gen10 servers, HPE MSA storage, and HPE switches. As an HPE OEM partner, OmniPlayer also gains the global presence of HPE to service customers and scale its business worldwide.

According to Harold de Groot, Chief Executive Officer, OmniPlayer, “As an OEM partner, we get a lot of special attention from HPE. They share knowledge about new hardware and guidance on what products to choose. We have price stability, longer warranties, and global support. That gives us confidence when selling to customers, especially as we expand into Europe".

Through HPE OEM Solutions, OmniPlayer also takes advantage of HPE Pointnext Services to provide local operational support for its customers. For example, with HPE Foundation Care, if there is ever a hardware-related problem, an HPE engineer is on-site within four hours. “Having HPE as a global partner also helps us scale the business because it would be impossible for us to have offices in every country. We really could not expand our business as we are without an OEM partner like HPE", Groot further said.
