HW Audio Karaoke Song Database

HW Music Mega Store is the UK's largest independent music retailer specialising in musical instruments, karaoke, sound and lighting.

With 1000's of karaoke discs and 10,000's tracks HW needed an effective way to manage their data and assist with day to day tasks such as searching for songs, creating song books and publishing to their website.
