Did you know that by using a radio or CD player for your Music-on-Hold source, you may be breaking the law?
To play a radio or commercial CD is actually an infringement of copyright laws in this country, and you could be fined.
One way to overcome this is to pay the fees to APRA and PPCA for their respective licences.
Another way is to use a custom-made CD with your company jingle and royalty-free music, with interspersed message.
This can be quite expensive to produce, but is a very professional approach, and your callers can be receiving useful information while they are on hold.
Unfortunately for this method, it is still relying on a physical disc playing continuously in a player that was not designed for continuous play 24/7, 365 days of the year. CD players will ultimately grind to a halt. Another problem is that the player will not automatically re-start after a power failure – you have to press PLAY, and select the REPEAT ALL mode – otherwise, SILENCE.
What is the best solution?
- a “solid state” device, that has no moving parts.
- can play “in a loop” continuously.
- easy to record music / sound tracks.
- connects to 240VAC power.
- will resume automatically after power failure.
- easy to use.
If you wish to use a customized message with music, this can easily be loaded into the player.
