In an ever-evolving musical landscape, Music Shack NI stands out as a pioneer. With its innovative online recording studio, the company has worked with big names in the music industry such as The Corrs, Andrew Strong, Van Morrison, Sinead O'Connor, Relish, Ken Haddock, and Nathan Carter. But like any forward-thinking company, Music Shack knew that the secret to long-term success lay in a robust, agile, and modern technical infrastructure.

Client Testimonial

SkillfulGorilla did an amazing job re-building out our core infrastructure. They were able to deliver a bespoke CMS that allowed us to manage our content with ease. They also built and integrated our API with other software platforms.

Actions We Undertook

To best serve Music Shack NI, SkillfulGorilla approached the challenge with a focus on incremental improvement that would not disrupt ongoing business processes. The assignment was a top-to-bottom overhaul, involving:

  • A comprehensive analysis of the existing system, followed by gradual improvements to minimise business interruption.
  • Sourcing and installing new hardware components to enhance performance and reliability.
  • Re-configuring the network setup to meet modern standards and ensure seamless connectivity.
  • Re-building the core software infrastructure, including a bespoke Content Management System (CMS).
  • Integration of third-party APIs to automate tasks and improve workflows. Some of the platforms we integrated include Xero, Pro Tools, Dropbox, and Google Suite.

This meticulous and comprehensive overhaul enabled Music Shack NI to focus solely on what they do best: making music and managing their business. The integrations and improvements to their system architecture have increased their business output by almost 50%.

SkillfulGorilla is proud to have partnered with Music Shack NI in their journey towards greater efficiency and technological robustness. Together, we're composing a future where technology doesn't just support art—it amplifies it.
