Cincinnati Bell Chooses Virtual Hold Queue Management.

AKRON, Ohio -- Virtual Hold Technology(R) LLC (VHT), the leading provider of intelligent queue management solutions, today announced an agreement with Cincinnati Bell (NYSE:CBB) to provide Virtual Hold queue management for Cincinnati Bell customers.

When Cincinnati Bell customer service agents are not immediately available to answer billing or service questions, the Virtual Hold system enables callers to hang up but keep their place in line. Callers are informed of their estimated wait time and given the callback option. When customers select a callback and enter their phone number, they are then free to go about their business as the system holds their place in the queue. Virtual Hold places a return call to the customer when he is next in line to speak with an agent, providing the customer with a high level of service and convenience.

Virtual Hold is expected to increase customer satisfaction and provide operational efficiencies for Cincinnati Bell. The queue management solution will be installed in early 2005 at Cincinnati Bell's Business Group call center.
