Music on hold

Music on hold

Business telephone systems are designed to do many things; some of which a lot of people never consider until they’re introduced to them. Things like voicemail, conference calling and free phone calls can all be handled with a business telephone system. But there is one function that the majority of businesses have in common: Music on Hold.

Music on hold was made so that businesses can give their callers a better experience. It’s a tool that plays music while the customer is being served. The goal here is for the caller to hear something while they’re being placed on hold.

How does this feature work for your business phone?

Music on hold is an inbound call waiting for service that plays music and messages when your phone is busy. Music on hold can be provided to callers waiting for the next available operator.

The purpose is to inform callers that, at present, all extensions are busy and they should “Please hold”. Music on hold messages can be of any length but are usually no longer than 20:00 minutes in length.

Music On Hold systems were initially developed in response to caller complaints regarding the fact that they had to listen to perpetual silence during times of high call volume or that they were often disconnected when there was too much traffic on the telephone lines.

It’s an excellent way to let them know they’ll soon be connected and keeps people informed while they’re on hold. This solution uses the latest voice compression, delivering high-quality music through standard telephone lines.

This service can be linked to your phone system so that you can track and record caller responses, even while playing live music.
