Disadvantages To Store-Bought Audio Players For Messages On Hold
Are You Thinking of Using or Purchasing Store-Bought (Consumer Grade) Equipment For Your Messages-On-Hold (MOH)?
• Store-bought players are not created to run 24/7 – in fact, many run from batteries that need to be replaced or recharged – and this will greatly reduce their lifespan. Professional MOH equipment is made to run 24/7 even in the rigorous conditions often found in a phone room environment.
• Store-bought players are generally tested and approved for household or consumer use. Professional MOH equipment is FCC tested & approved for a commercial environment. Industrial MOH Equipment also uses energy-efficient power supplies, ecologically conscious packaging and efficient design.
• In the case of store-bought CD players, CDs are in constant rotation when playing messages on hold, but not designed to run 24/7. Since there are many moving parts in a CD player, most typically wearout after 3-6 months, resulting in additional replacement and/or installation costs.
• Store-bought players are made to drive high-impedance headphones, which could damage the telephone system’s MOH port. Professional MOH equipment is created specifically for phone-system compatibility.
• Store-bought players typically include a 1-year (or less) warranty – and that only if operated under the conditions of personal use. Professional MOH equipment
includes a 3 to 5-year parts & labor warranty.
• Store-bought players often require special software to load audio or you are required to burn a CD. Most Professional MOH equipment is “drag ‘n drop” with no special software necessary.
• Store-bought players are made for, and marketed to, consumers. They are easily recognized and, as a result, induce theft.
• Store-bought players will typically need to be restarted after a power loss while Professional MOH equipment will begin playing when power is restored.
