Discover why digital queuing is essential for the New Normal

Queue Management and Digital Signage Deployment at IKEA Hong Kong

The world is changing, crowds are shunned while social distancing is embraced. We should consider how services are delivered with new lenses to design improvements that adhere to the standards of the new normal. Under the new normal, digital queue management and queuing solutions not only have become a way to elevate service experience. It has also become an indispensable part of service that promotes the well-being of visitors.

At its core, digital queue management leverages physical tickets and digital interfaces to call ticket numbers to eliminate the need for queuing. As technology continues to progress, greater flexibility and options have become available. At AAIOT Group, we design and build queue solutions that synergise with our client’s operations. QMS, developed by Aura Labs has been used by many industry leaders in retail, banking, corporate, and governmental service venues.

Queue solutions can be implemented to fit a range of scenarios, from visitor gaining access to the venue, obtaining services, to food & beverage reservations. QMS provides the solution core to provide flexible possibilities.

Our solution QMS offers unique capabilities to help businesses provide better queuing experiences

QMS has a range of features and extensions that provides greater granularity and control for businesses with variable queue demands and procedures. On the other hand, QMS also provides in-depth tools and insights to help businesses manage queues and facilitate operations. Let’s explore how QMS can help you reduce visitor wait times and freshen services.

Improved Queue Mechanism

One of the fundamental challenges of digital queuing solutions is catering to different queue and service types. Consider common practices from VIP only queues, multiple queues with multiple servers, to queues for different services spliced with reservable time-slots. The key advantage of QMS is that we can cater to all of the above scenarios. Moreover, a digital queue procedure would also result in reduced errors and costs for the operator.

The standard QMS visitor journey

With a simple QMS integration, visitors can simply select the appropriate service on an interactive kiosk as soon as they arrive at your venue. The visitor will obtain a calling number ticket. The visitor is then free to roam around your venue without having to wait in line. Once it’s the visitor’s turn for service; displays and a calling system will be engaged to notify the customer.

From paper tickets to a completely digital experience

QMS can be upgraded to be completely digital that supports online reservations and walk-in visitors simultaneously. To go paperless, we replace tickets with QR codes or call numbers based on mobile applications, link to a web-based experience and even SMS. When it’s the visitors’ turn, they will now get a pop-up or SMS on their mobile device on top of location signage notifications. With a digital interface, it would also be easier to implement a more personalised queuing journey for VIPs or members.
