Virtual Hold Technology® Partners With UK-Based Qology

Partnership Will Help Companies Make Better Use of Customers' Time

AKRON, OH--(Marketwire - August 24, 2009) - Virtual Hold Technology®, LLC (VHT) has reached a reseller agreement with Qology Limited to sell and support the Virtual Hold® software solution to Qology customers in the United Kingdom and Ireland. Qology develops queue management and callback strategies for contact centers in the government, finance and utility sectors. With this partnership, Qology will be able to help its clients enhance customer satisfaction, increase revenue and reduce operational costs.

"Qology is unmatched when it comes to knowledge of the contact center space and experience in complex integrations," said Jeremy Starcher, vice president of business development, Virtual Hold Technology. "The partnership between Qology and VHT will help businesses in the United Kingdom and Ireland offer the ultimate customer experience by demonstrating respect of their customers' valuable time."

Virtual Hold software helps eliminate hold time in contact centers worldwide. When hold time is more than a few minutes, the Concierge® solution offers to hold a customer's place in line and call them back when it's their turn to speak to a customer service representative. Scheduled callbacks, website integration and outbound notification products also are available.

"Waiting on hold remains the single most complained-about aspect of calling a company," said Stuart Lambert, principal consultant, Qology. "We are thrilled to be able to offer a solution that will help our clients' contact centers operate efficiently and respectfully by providing callers with an alternative to waiting on hold."

In addition to being a reseller, Qology will continue working with VHT to create innovative ways to utilize and deploy their virtual queuing software suite. First, they will make Virtual Hold software available on a fully hosted basis to enable rapid deployment and reduced total cost of ownership.

"Organizations are increasingly adopting the SaaS [software as a service] model as a cost-effective and flexible way of deploying technology that supports and enhances their internal processes as well the experience they are able to offer to their customers," Lambert said. "The results of decreased costs and increased customer satisfaction create a competitive edge for businesses and provide an even faster return on investment."
