What Is a Queue Management System?

Track Real-Time Visitor Traffic

A short queue and waiting time at checkout are key factors to improving customer experience and encouraging spending. 1 in every 3 potential customers leaves the store if they have to wait for more than 5 minutes to pay, and retailers may experience revenue losses of up to 45% due to long queues.

V-Count’s smart queue management system minimizes the time customers spend waiting at checkout queues to provide the most effective customer service and increase sales.
