6. Enterprise Queue Solutions: It is recommended to choose a world-class solution to be competitive and to achieve the same level as the best global service providers. This aspect finely relates to a queue management system’s quality and warranty standards.

7. Cross-Selling: A new phenomenon which has become a strategic opportunity for companies is to how to optimize customer visits.  Many customers visit a customer care center and end up acquiring other products and services that they initially did not require.  With an appropriate queue management system, it is possible to promote and stimulate this phenomenon and offer customers a direct access to offers and promotions according to their tastes and preferences, through a mobile application integrated into the queue management.

Taking this into account, it is essential to choose a queue management solution provider that commits to the continuous improvement of the product. That is to say, the solution should evolve and adapt to the new challenges proposed by the company.

9. Third-party systems compatibility: The queue management system should be compatible with third-party systems already installed in the company. There are systems that contain some restrictions; thus, the solution to be used should be versatile enough to connect and interact with the current system and meet the primary demands of the company.

10. After sales support: This is a very important aspect to consider when choosing queuing technology. It is recommended to choose a solution that offers permanent and continuous follow-up of the issues to be resolved.  Once the system is implemented in a service area, adjustment and functionality issues in the installed systems may occur, thus, the queuing company you choose must offer after sales support.
