Free Business Phone Bill Analysis and Audit

With your business phone system do you have?
  • unused business phone lines
  • features that you have no idea how to use
  • out of control fees and costs
  • excessive long distance fees
  • high conference calling charges
When we perform business phone bill audits we often find phone lines that aren't in use any more and they're still being paid for, or lines that have no long distance plan in place, meaning you're paying the full long distance rate for calls on that line. Let's take a look and see if we can save your firm some money.

On-hold History

Music on hold was created by Alfred Levy, an inventor, factory owner, and entrepreneur. In 1962, Levy discovered a problem with the phone lines at his factory. A loose wire was touching a metal girder on the building. This made the building a giant receiver so that the audio broadcast signal from a radio station next door would transmit through the loose wire and could be heard when calls were put on hold. Alfred Levy patented his work in 1966 and this accident and patent creation began the evolution for today's music on-hold and the concept of on-hold messages.
