Use Sound Library to customize music on hold

The Music on Hold feature by VoipBusiness helps the phone system play music while the callers are on hold which gives your company a professional edge. This feature allows you to replace dead silence with music.
VoIPBusiness gives your company options so you can choose music of your liking or you can also upload a file to be played. That means that anyone who calls the business would be able to have a pleasant experience as you’d be able to fill in all the voids with some nice music and harness experiential marketing by building and maintaining the right vibes whilst customers and stakeholders await to talk to someone in your business.

Music On Hold Scenario in PBX

Caller X, calls the main number and after three rings, gets played a custom music, with a custom greeting “Our agents are currently busy assisting valued customers like you, please hold”, then User Y who happens to be in the sales team picks it up. Caller X actually needed to speak to someone in Finance as advised by User Y, so the caller gets transferred to the Finance Department. Whilst waiting for another staff to pick up, a custom music on hold, specially an upbeat could be played. If someone is unavailable, a custom message might play such as “Your are number 2 in our queue, we won’t be long and appreciate your patience”. This way, as a business, you are able to maintain the customer experience throughout the entire call wait, hold, transfer and pickup.
