It is a known fact that the ultimate result of a poor service and unsatisfied customers is loss of profits. Every customer wants the maximum attention, regardless of the number of other customers waiting to be served. Customers crowded at a counter become frustrated and soon create a stressful environment.
Instead of waiting in lines, closely behind one another, and with no privacy at all, your customers can spend the waiting time on their own choice. Each customer takes a ticket with a queue number and is free to decide where to wait and what to do. Your customer remains comfortable during waiting and serving time, leaves satisfied and remain your customer.
User friendly software keeps a record of the number of customer served, average waiting and serving time, customer rating of your service quality and stores them in its database for your further analysis to help you planning your resources better.
