Alberta Female Entrepreneur Launches WaitWell Software to Eliminate Line-Up Problems During COVID-19

Oct 6 2020

WaitWell line management software ensures physical distancing measures  are maintained in waiting areas by allowing customers to wait comfortably  at home, in their vehicles or in shopping centres 

CALGARY, Alberta, Oct. 06, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — 

WaitWell Inc. announces the launch of WaitWell line management  software. WaitWell software eliminates crowded waiting areas and long queue times, which are two factors known to elevate the risk of transmitting COVID-19.  With its unique approach to letting customers join a virtual line by SMS text and with its one of-a-kind occupancy management feature called two-stage waiting, WaitWell software not  only creates the safest queueing approach possible, but also gives users control over their  wait experience. 

Customers can wait in the comfort of their homes or vehicles, or they can take care of  errands so that they remain productive while waiting. This is possible because WaitWell  software provides real-time status updates by SMS messaging to let customers know their  place in line, along with an estimated wait time that is accurate to within 90 seconds. If  customers miss their turn, they regain their place at the front by simply replying to a text. 

“We used to have people standing within inches of each other in a long line that would  completely crowd our lobby,” says Ivy Young, Manager at East Calgary Registry. “To keep  people safe during COVID, we had no choice but to ask them to remain outside. However,  nobody likes waiting in bad weather, so we needed to find a better solution before winter  arrived.” 

“Since implementing WaitWell, customer frustration from waiting has disappeared. People  appreciate knowing how long their wait will be and how the line is progressing. It lets them  put that time to good use, like picking up some groceries or running errands,” says Ivy  Young. 

WaitWell software’s unique two-stage waiting feature controls how many people are waiting  inside at one time. With the ability to manage their occupancy limits, business owners can  ensure that there is enough space for physical distancing measures to be implemented  effectively. This keeps customers and staff safe, while allowing lines to flow smoothly and  efficiently. 

“It is critical to our economy that businesses remain open during COVID-19 and the best  way to make that happen is to create solutions that support proper physical distancing  measures,” comments WaitWell founder, Shannon Vander Meulen. “We invented WaitWell  software to maintain safe waiting areas, while also keeping customers coming through the  doors as quickly as possible.”
