  27. 27. TELL THE CUSTOMERS - ‘WHY’’ Most customers are very patient if they are politely informed as to why they must hold. They find it easier and comfortable to wait on hold if they have a mental picture of what’s the service associate doing while away from the phone. Be sure the information is pertinent.
