Virtual Queuing Application Helps Businesses Reduce Hold Time, Improving the Customer Experience and Operational Efficiencies

AKRON, OH--(Marketwire - September 28, 2010) -  Virtual Hold Technology® (VHT®), a leading developer of virtual queuing solutions, today announced that its Virtual Hold® Concierge® software solution for contact centers is compliant with key Internet Protocol (IP) telephony and contact center solutions from Avaya, a global leader in enterprise communications systems, software and services.

The Concierge software solution helps businesses improve contact center operations while providing a better, more consistent customer experience through the elimination of hold time. Concierge version 6.7.2 has now been compliance-tested by Avaya for compatibility with Avaya Aura™ Communication Manager 6.0 with Avaya Aura™ Application Enablement Services (AES) 5.2.2.

"It's essential that we test the latest version of our software against the most current Avaya offerings," said Eric Camulli, vice president, VHT. "Compliance helps us demonstrate our commitment to integrating with the most innovative contact center technology in order to provide efficient, customer-friendly solutions."

Virtual Hold Technology is a four-year member of the Avaya DevConnect program, an initiative to develop, market and sell innovative third-party products that interoperate with Avaya technology and extend the value of a company's investment in its network.

As a Gold member of the program, Virtual Hold Technology is eligible to submit products for compatibility testing by the Avaya Solution Interoperability and Test Lab. There, a team of Avaya engineers develops a comprehensive test plan for each application to verify whether it is Avaya compliant. Doing so ensures businesses can confidently add best-in-class capabilities to their network without having to replace their existing infrastructure -- speeding deployment of new applications and reducing both network complexity and implementation costs.

"We're always looking for new ways to enhance the experience for our customers," said Eric Rossman, vice president, Developer Relations, Avaya. "We're impressed by the innovation of development partners like Virtual Hold Technology, who develop customer-focused technology solutions that integrate well with the Avaya solution. The real winners are our customers. Reducing hold times increases customer loyalty and the pace of operations, ultimately yielding a more attractive Total Cost of Ownership model."
