CLEARWATER, FL / March 24, 2003: The Bekins Company, one of the largest transportation and distribution services companies in America, has selected Applied Media Technologies Corporation (AMTC) as the preferred vendor of telephone “on hold” messaging for its approximately 375 agents nationwide.

Bekins, based in Hillside, IL, chose AMTC’s TraxMaster, a programmable player utilizing CD-ROM technology.

AMTC's TELADVANTAGE ‘on hold’ solutions are affordable, professionally produced, and very timely.
