6. A Message from the Director The following excerpt from David Bonnin, the founder of Telemallaudio, sums it up nicely : ”It is interesting to note that when you put someone on hold you are being pretty inconsiderate to a fellow human being and prospective customer. So I would like it on record that in starting the message on hold industry, I did not set out to provide a solution for poor customer service ! “ “The reality is that in 1986, the idea of messages on hold was to bring novelty and corporate information together to make the inevitable ‘wait’ more useful – I had little understanding at the time of the psychology of voice announcements and no appreciation of the value this idea would bring to industry and government. “ “It has since transpired that recorded voice announcements have become a vital part of customer communications - to such an extent that the customer experience is now recognized as the make or break for success in customer retention, sales, and revenue growth. ” “Telemallaudio is building on hard won experience gained over the years and continues to develop, refine and implement market leading On-Hold strategies and levels of customer service, second to none anywhere in the world. “ “Telemallaudio will continue to nurture its internal culture of customer service above all else, bringing a breath of fresh air to an otherwise staid marketplace. “ “By selecting Telemallaudio, you’ve taken the first step towards consistent caller satisfaction. Let us help your business to stand out from your competitors - after all, that’s exactly what we do ! ”
