Ameren Elevates Customer Service by Implementing Virtual Hold Virtual Queuing Solution.

AKRON, Ohio -- Virtual Hold Technology[R], LLC (VHT), the leading provider of virtual queuing solutions, today announced that the Ameren Corporation (NYSE:AEE) has implemented the Virtual Hold[TM] solution at their contact centers in Missouri and Illinois.

Headquartered in St. Louis, Ameren provides energy services to more than 3 million customers in Missouri and Illinois. Approximately 93 percent of the 100-year-old company's $3.5 billion in revenue flows from electric sales. Other sales come from a natural gas business serving more than 500,000 customers and from non-regulated businesses, including energy trading, generation development, fuels management and services and energy marketing.

"This feature is yet another example of Ameren's commitment to providing our customers with performance-leading service," said Richard Mark, senior vice-president of Missouri Energy Delivery. "Virtual Hold allows a caller to resume normal activities while waiting to speak with an Ameren customer service representative." Virtual Hold uses patented virtual queuing technology that maintains a caller's place in queue, allowing customers to hang up the phone while they wait. Mark Williams, President of Virtual Hold Technology says, "As a customer, when you choose to receive a Virtual Hold callback rather than wait on hold, you no longer feel tied down. You can go about your life and know that you will receive a callback when it's your turn to speak to an agent."
