Info/Music On Hold

Sarah’s Serenity Spa is a peaceful place and she plays music on hold from soft jazz legend, Kenny G. Occasionally, she mixes it up with recorded information on her twice-annual sale, so she can toggle through satiny saxophone to door-buster deals with a few clicks.

Music On Hold

The On Hold  (On Hold Music for Business) feature has been updated considerably from its original state. Most notable in the upgrades is that what customers hear while on hold is just as customizable and remotely manageable as all the other functions of the Dash interface. From hold music to information, here are just a few types of greetings you can add with using Info/Music on Hold:

  • Business and Holiday Hours
  • Professional Voice Actors
  • Jukebox (On-Hold Music Catered to Your Preferences)
  • Directory Using Auto Attendant

Benefits of On Hold Music

When callers leave a queue or hear static during a call, the experience between the business and caller is hindered. Hold music and messages help keep callers at ease, and it may keep them informed while they wait to reach a sales or technical service team.

Hold music gives callers an opportunity to relax while they wait for their turn to speak with a representative. It also provides some background noise to mask the sounds of busy offices, so that callers feel like they are being addressed in an environment that is professional and well-run.

Hold messages can be used in two ways: as an introduction to an automated system, where the message gives basic information about how to use the system; or as an introduction to live personnel when no one is available to take calls right away. The latter will let callers know how long they should expect to wait before speaking with someone.
