How retail operations use analytics to minimize queue wait times
Measure and decrease queue lengths
Long queue lengths can cause shoppers to abandon their cart and have a direct impact on customer satisfaction. Understanding queue lengths by day of week and time of day help improve staff planning.
Mount the sensor either above the queue or on a nearby wall. Connect to a local wifi network or use a cellular modem. Queue length and average dwell time is reported and can be used for better planning. Optionally, with the Pro Plus plan, sales staff can be alerted via overhead audio or messaging in Real-Time to take action.
