View Hardware for "Non-Key" Phones

--> MOH Solutions for 1, 2 and 4-1ine telephones

* * * * *

If you are a SOHO business (small office home office) then please call us to discuss the brand new options that are available to you using our "Universal MOH Phone Adapter" + Brand New ELE-2015 (or ELE-2020) MOH Playback Devices for your 1 or 2-line hardwired telephone. (THIS IS NOT A CORDLESS PHONE SOLUTION.)

&
NOTES: The telephone IS NOT INCLUDED
and, this IS NOT a cordless phone solution.

This may not be the first time that an MOH solution has been available to small home offices and businesses but it is the 1st time that it has been available economically. Up until now you needed to have a phone "system" that was equipped with an "MOH port" to find a cost-effective solution to your music/message on hold needs for your one or two line business. With the advent of two new technologies you are no longer locked into the very expensive OHP-6500 and OHP-7500 products for businesses that have only one or two phones. This solution is not for those of you who have many 2 or 4-line stand-alone phones since the OHP-6500/7500 would be a much better solution in that specific environment. It is also a very good solution to those of you who take work home with you and may have an occasion to place a business call on hold from your home office.

With the release of the new ELE-2015 MOH playback device you now have, for the 1st time, a superb "state of the art" solution for under $100. That still doesn't solve the problem of getting the device to work for those of you who don't have a phone system with an MOH port. Now, with the release of the second state of the art "Universal MOH Phone Adapter" you can add the power of these two inexpensive devices together to achieve seamless music / message on hold integration to ANY hard wired phone where the phone line can be removed from the back of the phone via the RJ11 (or RJ14) jack that is standard on most phones. The hook-up is also very easy so you won't have to worry about hiring someone to do this for you, plus we'll be standing by to assist if any questions do arise. The ELE-2015 may be loaded with your exisitng MOH production, a new MOH program from I.O.S. or any of our "generic" MOH licensed medleys that run from 4-minutes to 2-hours.

Please Note: This is not a solution for those of you who depend on cordless phones.

So whether you are hoping to sound like a Fortune 500 company with one of our superb customized message-on-hold productions or just want to ease your callers holding time with a medley of LICENSED music with generic messages, we can help! You can always start simple (with just the equipment and generic medley) and then add a custom program at any time in the future when your budget permits. We currently have a completely customized MOH production package available to you for only $269. That price includes both pieces of hardware and a 4-minute MOH starter package as described in our website's bargain basement. It's your call. Literally! What you decide to do with it is another matter.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions and don't forget to visit our website to hear some audio samples of our actual MOH productions. Then read the FAQs page to learn as much as you'd like and then check out our testimonials and eBay references. You'll soon appreciate that you are buying from a knowledgeable and reputable company that will help you make the correct choices for your unique business. Thank you for visiting with us, we'll look forward to hearing from you and assisting with with any questions that arise.

For those of you who don't have a phone system with a music-on-hold (MOH) port but need a viable solution for up to four lines and fifty (2 to 4-line) phones then the existing OHP-6500 and OHP-7500 remains the best choice since the UPA solutions we introduced above WILL NOT handle your needs cost-effectively.

The OHP-6500 and OHP-7500 digital announcers are designed specifically for business owners without sophisticated phone systems who wish to equip their 2 to 4-line telephones with music/messaging on-hold capabilities. With the advent of this breakthrough technology (with the OHP-4500 & 5500 way back in Q4/2001) and the new enhancements available with the 6500 & 7500 models, you can now sound BETTER than any Fortune 500 company by replacing the prepackaged generic messages contained in each unit with one of our customized music / message-on-hold offerings, which is our specialty. Take virtually any 1, 2, 3, or 4-line telephone (with a hold button) from Office Max, Radio Shack (or similar venue) and TRANSPARENTLY provide it with music or information on hold. Simply press the hold button on any of your phones and your callers will be instantly connected to your on-hold program just like an expensive phone system, with one exception; you can have a superior production from I.O.S.!

The 6500/7500 models are equipped with an internal adapter card (see #2 in the picure above) that communicates with the TEHMA modules on each phone. The TEHMA's are installed at the base of each of your phones handset curly cord (see picture below). This provides transparent, high-quality music / message-on-hold capabilities to phones that aren't part of a phone system. All models come with two TEHMAs and additional adapters may be ordered "as needed" so you will be able to equip up to 4-lines and 50 phones with one OHP-6500 or 7500 unit. The brand new OHP-7500 adds a "CD-Loader" to the OHP-6500 platform making it the most flexible unit in the marketplace and therefore somewhat more expensive. The added cost places it in our number 2 position but if money is no factor then this is the best overall unit. If money IS A FACTOR then you would be better off buying the OHP-6500 and investing the savings into a customized production, which will give you more of a professional pressence to your on-hold audience. Visit our I.O.S. Demos page for samples within various industries.

The 6500/7500 models are simple to install and we will walk you through the set-up process so you can avoid the installation charges from your local telco provider. There is also FREE technical support via an 800 number directly from the manufacturer.

The primary difference between the two models is that the 7500 comes with a built-in "CD-loader" for maximum convenience when changing programs via CD. The 6500 model loads MP3 files from a built-in USB port or via the "smart media card" slot, (Card NOT provided). The 7500 is basically the marriage of the 6500+5500 technologies for better expandability than the 5500 and more loading options than the 6500.

Both units come with a 3-year manufacturer's warranty. This family of products have earned our "Best in Class" recommendation for "NON-Telephone System Solutions" for over four years so you can order with complete confidence.

Note 1: The 6500 & 7500 packages on this page are EXACTLY THE SAME as the manufacturer's offering but at a significant savings. Currently they are providing a "free Message Studio software download" and a "free production", which is very limited and described as follows:

"Our Production Services team will incorporate your company's or organization's name into a "thank you for holding" message, mix it over a bed of tasty music, burn it onto an Audio CD, and send it straight to you. Your professionally read, personalized greeting will be interspersed at one-minute intervals over a full 7-minutes/45-seconds of great sounding music."

Visit our Bargain Basement for MOH Starter Programs and upgrade options.

Note 2: Both the OHP-4500 and 5500 models are manufacturer discontinued and are considered "non-competitive" with the current offerings.

Note 3 - KNOWN COMPATIBILITY ISSUES: Per an e-mail received from this manufacturer (IntelliTouch) on 9/12/05: The 4500/5500/6500/7500 family of products were designed to be universal solutions for providing music-on-hold to analog and non-KSU phones. Since its initial introduction in Q4/2001 this family of products has been field tested on virtually every multi-line phone ever sold. Out of literally hundreds of phones a very few phones either won't work or require special attention to function properly. Please review the following list BEFORE purchasing AND contact the manufacturer at: 800-839-7277 to verify any compatibility issues (and potential work-arounds). WE DO NOT OFFER RETURNS ON THIS PRODUCT LINE SO PLEASE CALL INTELLITOUCH BEFORE PURCHASING THE OHP-6000/6500/7000/7500 from I.O.S. to discuss compatibility with your phones and current packaging information. We may reached toll-free at 800-925-9025.

Meet the OHP6500!

Manufacturer's Complete Package: List Price is $400 but is available for much less from I.O.S. with 3-year warranty! We've been saying for over 3-years that technology was heading in this direction and are pleased to see one of the top manufacturers agrees with us. IntelliTouch's introduction of this OHP-6500 is VERY SIMILAR to the DP-100, then the ELE-2020 product that we recommended for years prior to it's newer sibling, the USB-2020's introduction. The OHP-6500 has the additional capability of being able to work WITHOUT A PHONE SYSTEM when used in conjunction with 2 to 4-line phones that are equipped with a hold button. The OHP6500 comes loaded with five "generic" on-hold music medleys totaling 57-minutes. This manufacturer's package also includes the Message Studio 3.0 software (on CD ROM), the USB cable needed to download MP3 files directly from your computer and comes with the a coupon for a "FREE PRODUCTION"... BUYER BEWARE: We've investigated this "freebie" and all it provides is a 7:45 audio program with the name of your business interjected into an otherwise "generic" message. (THIS IS NOT A CUSTOM PRORGAM AS WE DEFINE IT!) It typically installs easily in under 15-minutes without the need to hire a telco technician.

Meet the BRAND NEW OHP-7500!

Manufacturer's Complete Package: List Price is $500 but is available for much less from I.O.S. with 3-year warranty! What is this sleek new model all about? Let's keep it simple... it's the marriage of the older OHP-5500 (CD-loading unit) with the newer, more advanced capabilities of the OHP-6500. The 7500, though more expensive, offers the most flexibility, most time, plus ease of use for about $100 more than its 6500 counterpart. If money is no issue then this system is the best available, but if you are looking for the best "bang for your buck" then buy the 6500 and put the $100 you'll save into a customized production... from I.O.S. of course! This unit is for use with 2 to four line phones that ARE NOT part of a phone system, which is already equipped with an MOH port. Feel free to call us with any questions at1-800-925-9025.

Q: When would I select the OHP-6500, the 7500 or 5500 models?

A: The OHP-6500 represented a major advancement in music / message-on-hold hardware for small to medium businesses that DO NOT have a phone system with an MOH port. All three of the systems mentioned (6500/7500/5500) will work beautifully with 2 to 4-line telephones and can be expaned to handle up to four lines and 50 phones. Where the 6500 unit excels is in its capacity (both equipped and growth), INSTANT track selection, price performance and USB interface... so you can download your audio programs as soon as they are produced and e-mailed to you with the MOH MP3 attachment.

For example - in the preceeding generation equipment (the OHP-5500); To grow that Manufacturer Discontinued product beyond its equipped capacity of 8-minutes you had to purchase and install 8-minute memory chips, which list out at $59 each, until you reach the maximum capacity of 32-minutes (i.e another $177). With the 6500 you are already equipped with twice that much memory through the 64MBs of "on-board memory", when sampled at 128-kbps. Furthermore, you can expand it up to 9 hours of audio simply by using a 128MB smart media card and using a lower sampling rate. The added capacity allows you to have multiple programs residing on it SIMULTANEOUSLY and those programs are INSTANTLY AVAILABLE vs. having to locate and wait for the program to upload from a CD (as with the outdated OHP-5500). This is a forward-looking technology whose development was spurred on by the DP-100 (the predecessor of the ELE-2020) and both of those units ARE NOT solutions for non-system (non-KSU) phones.

The NEW OHP-7500 is basically the marriage of the 6500 and 5500. It has more capacity than the 5500 and the convenience of the CD-loader technology borrowed from the 5500. It also has more formats that it can load your music or production from. CD (pure audio or MP3), wma, SD card, etc. We still think the extra $100 is better spent on a custom production unless the end user is totally afraid of computers and prefers the convenience of a CD loading machine over having to take an e-mailed file off their computer and download it to the 6500 via the USB port, which can be a 15 minute process for a total novice.
