VoIP Business provides the Call hold feature as part of Telephony package. It helps the employees in placing a call on hold without losing the call. Through this feature you can receive calls when you are available. When a caller is put on hold, the caller cannot communicate to the employee.

A pre-recorded message or music can be played when the call is on hold. With call hold the employee has the freedom to consult other employees or can perform other important tasks during call hold.

Call Hold Scenario in PBX

There is an inbound call for user Y. He picks up the phone and tries to answer the questions put by the caller. However, he needs more time to check the right information on the computer and also consult with his colleague just around the corner, so he uses the Call Hold feature to place that caller on hold for some time until he finds the right answer.

The caller in the meantime gets to listen to a cracking call hold music, well you can customise that as well in VoIP Business Sound Library. Upon finding the right information for the caller, user Y resumes the call, therefore ending the call hold.
