BookingBug’s Dynamic Queue Management brings insight to walk-in customers

Intelligent concierge welcomes customers into busy stores and branches

For years, the world’s biggest organizations have been grappling with added value services and appointments, so that when a customer enters their store, they know who they are, what they want, and can get their best team on the job.

Now, they can get that same insight about every customer who walks into the store, thanks to BookingBug Dynamic Queue Management. With the addition of a queuing solution, the BookingBug platform handles both pre-scheduled appointments and walk-ins for better customer and staff experience.

Why Queuing Matters

Once you capture a queue digitally, it becomes so much more than a line of people. Identify who is waiting, why they are there, where they found your service and which staff member is best suited to serve them.

It enables a whole range of customer experience possibilities that you would normally only achieve with pre-booked appointments:

  • Distinguish between visitors waiting for business and consumer services

  • Follow up with them if they miss their spot Ensure customers who booked in advance are served promptly

  • Share real-time updates on in-store digital signage or as SMS reminders

  • When queues hit capacity, staff can offer to book appointments to smooth out demand and prevent long waiting times

Finally, one of the most potentially frustrating elements of the in-store experience can become a pleasure and opportunity to create further loyalty.

Diving into the details…

  • Automated Concierge: Welcomes customers professionally and consistently into busy stores and branches. It then intelligently uses configured, historic and real-time data to calculate queue times and manage customers, meaning customers receive accurate and personalized wait time information.

  • Real-time visibility of staff availability: Associate calendars display queued commitments and pre-scheduled appointments side-by-side, providing accurate availability of individual staff and flexible service operations.

  • Operates within the BookingBug platform: Alongside Appointment Scheduling and Events, to improve sales, operational efficiencies and customer success.

  • Improving store and branch performance: Enable performance and service level analysis, streamlining customer service and reducing OpEx costs. Improve service based on potential deal size and availability of staff, rather than on a linear queue. Provide staff with bespoke cross-sell and upsell information to increase customer value and ROI.
