Queue Management


What is Queue Management?

Queue management is the approach and set of principles and tools used for a more manageable and optimized queueing system. Queue management aims to control customer flow, streamline the queueing experience, and reduce customer waiting times.

There are four types of queues: structured, unstructured, kiosk, and virtual queues. Companies, especially in the retail industry, have a queue management system to control queues and enhance customer experience.

  • Improved crowd management
