Improve Customer Flow
Let’s face it, no one likes to wait. What’s more, long frustrating wait times can quickly lead to dissatisfied customers. Appointment scheduling software can help you improve customer flow and that can increase customer satisfaction by up to 20%.
QLess appointment booking software uses a virtual queue that allows the customer to check-in on your website, using a mobile device or at an on-site kiosk. What’s more, customers receive an estimated wait time when they check in. Our queue management system features intelligent algorithms to process customers upon check-in and deliver accurate wait times.
When it’s easy for customers to check-in, when they get accurate wait times, and when they get regular communication on their status, customers feel less anxious and more satisfied with the overall experience.
One of the most frustrating aspects of waiting in line is the uncertainty. Sure, you may have a number but do you really know when your number will be called. Uncertainty can quickly lead to dissatisfaction. QLess appointment scheduling software offers bi-directional communication between your customers and your staff. This helps eliminate uncertainty by offering timely updates, valuable communication, and accurate wait times.
What’s more, customers that are waiting can ensure they have proper documentation or any other items they may need to complete their transaction. We all know the feeling of waiting in a long line only to find out we need a different form or were waiting in the wrong queue. Timely communication and updates help to reduce uncertainty, anxiety, and dissatisfaction.
Easy to Use For Customers
One of the key ways that appointment scheduling software improves customer experience is how easy it is to use. Customers are able to self check-in from the most convenient location for them. They can check in online, from the app, from a smart device, or in person using an on-site kiosk. They can even leave a voice message or check in with a representative in your location. This gives you and your customers a wide range of options to check-in.
That’s not all. Customers can download the QLess app. Our app delivers real-time wait information and other valuable data customers can use to improve their overall experience.
