Promotion On Hold Update Software

Not currently available due to server migration issues.

Click for Larger Picture Developed to automate the process of handling your Promotion On Hold message updates for our DL-11 player.  This software easily installs into any Windows NT/XP/Vista system, then it stays in the background, watching for new messages on our server.  When POHU sees a new Promotion On Hold message, it creates a backup of the message then it activates a message window with instructions to insert your USB Flash Drive "Key" into your PC.  The moment the software sees the "Key", it transfers the new message, then it safely ejects it and tells you to put the "Key" back in the DL-11.  That's it, the new message will automatically start playing to all your customers when placed on hold.  This new version now supports AUTOMATIC program updating, so you won't have to come back to this page and download/install program updates.  The program will automatically check and download/install updates each day on its own, so you will always be "Up To Date" with the latest enhancements and fixes.

Minimum System Requirements:

Windows NT/XP/Vista

(Win 98 should be okay, we need someone to try it and let us know)

256M RAM
60M hard drive space
800x600 video resolution.
