Music on Hold allows calls on hold, and parked calls to have music. You can customize the music that plays or disable it altogether. The music could be combined with a promotional on hold message as well.
As a group administrator, you can change the music on hold as often as you like, by logging into the broadcore site. You can make it as complex or as simple as you want. If you need professional voice over work and editing we can make a referral with a reputable company. Also all copyright permissions must be attained by you.
Also you can have different music play for different departments and for outgoing and incoming calls.

Department Music On Hold
This functionality allows for separate music on hold audio sources to be configured on a per-department basis. The per-department audio source is optional, and departments without their own audio source make use of the group-defined audio source by default, as usual. Once the group administrator allows a department to use its own audio source, this audio source can be configured by the department administrator.GROUP>>SERVICES>>MUSIC ON HOLD>>DEPARTMENT.
How to Change your Music on Hold
This is a three step process. First prepare the file. Second upload the file. Third test the music on hold. If you get to the end and it isn't how you expected simply repeat the steps.
