Streaming Music And Messaging


With an Asterisk-based business telephony solution comes an amazing set of features. One feature you may not be taking advantage of is streaming music on hold. Easy On Hold® provides individualized custom 128k http .mp3 streams created specifically for your business clients. The custom live stream plays a series of announcements that inform, inspire and update callers while they wait.

"I like the way the solution is solving the MOH problem. This year we are focused on partnering with companies that provide complimentary services and easyonhold looks like it fits the bill. 80% of our business consists of supporting Asterisk based systems, so we can definitely promote the product to our customers."

Mack Hendricks, Asterisk Support Manager

A Better On Hold Experience

Easy On Hold's® new streaming system does away with the traditional practice of voice blurbs interrupting a repeating background track. The new streaming system manages hand-crafted 30 to 60 second promotional spots, with a mix of voice and music, each focused on presenting an influential idea or message to callers on hold.

With music constantly changing and timely topics blending in at just the right times, the new Easy On Hold streaming system provides a fresh sound callers find more appealing.

Until now, no matter which method is used, businesses have had to handle media, while callers listen to stale, looping audio. With our streaming technology, we provide a live program personalized to your business. Streaming on hold is an entirely new category in message on hold delivery, and you will see a big difference.

No More Uploading Files

The live Easy On Hold® stream automatically changes content based on a planned schedule, changing and updating content is done without the aid of equipment or technicians. In addition, the sound quality is excellent.

I love the quality of sound that the Easy On Hold® streams provide.

Mattchis Technologies founder Matthew Chisenhall
