Improve the customer experience in stores and QSRs with efficient queuing procedures

Maintaining excellent customer service during peak periods is one of the biggest challenges facing managers in shops, quick service restaurants (QSRs) and leisure venues.

A good queue management system & software allows them to carry on browsing while waiting to be served, helping to drive additional sales and improve their perceptions of the brand.

Complete queuing solutions

What is queue management system?

Our queuing management solutions give you the data you need to identify trends, make operational decisions and increase sales opportunities.

Using mobile queue management system software, customers book a place using their phone and continue browsing until they are served, rather than standing in line, which reduces the frustration and boredom associated with long waiting times.

Queue management systems for store managers

Use our queue management tools to schedule staff in line with customer demand to deliver positive experiences. We’ll also help you discover the best days and times to drive conversions, as well as understand the impact walk-in shoppers and queued shoppers have on Average Transaction Value (ATV) and sales.

Queue management systems for area managers

Queuing data provides invaluable insights for area managers who want to manage customer flow and identify where there are growth opportunities. See whether marketing campaigns contributed to higher footfall, and measure the impact of your queue management solution, and any staff training, on conversion rates.

Queue management systems for head office

When you understand queuing times, you can evaluate and optimise store layouts, and measure the impact of marketing activities and queue product placements. The data also allows you to uncover consumer trends, measure the success of a new store concept or refit and provide evidence for lease negotiations.

Redefining customer experiences

Retailers and leisure operators trust our tailored queue management systems to manage high customer volumes, and deliver excellent service.

Suitable for peak periods during the day, and during events, our call forward technology prompts people to go to the next service desk or gate, quickly and easily. We also offer mobile queuing solutions, so people do not have to wait in line until they are served. They can simply book a place using their phone.

Powered by our quality data, the Ipsos Traffic Count app gives managers the tools they need to make operational decisions on-the-go. With access to real-time and historical store data, they can schedule staff according to customer volumes and spend more time on the shop floor and less in the back office. Also valuable in large public spaces, such as entertainment venues, airports, shopping malls and attractions, the app helps operators see instantly whether it is reaching maximum occupancy.

    Managing high volumes of customers at peak periods is not simply about moving them through the checkout as quickly as possible. This is why many retailers are redefining shopper experiences using queue management systems. A mobile queue management system, for example, allows customers to book a place using their phone and continue browsing until they are served.
