Streamline service delivery at your government office

Government offices are busy places. It can be a challenge to maintain order when there are so many visitors with diverse needs. Long lines and crowded waiting areas make staff feel stressed.

That is where WaitWell comes in. WaitWell replaces lineups with virtual queue and online appointment booking.

Visitors have several options for joining the line or making an appointment:

  • QR code
  • Website
  • SMS text
  • On-site kiosk
  • WaitWell app
  • Staff member

Visitors join the line using their mobile device or an on-site kiosk. Visitors can even make an appointment to be first in line on a future date and time. Customers with appointments receive a text just before their appointment. They check themselves in by replying to the text. Staff manage both walk-ins and visitors with appointments from an intuitive queue screen.

Happier visitors. Happier staff. Plus service analytics that administration can use to make data-driven decisions about staffing & operations.
