Retail is a competitive industry. Customer retention is what sets apart a successful business from a failing business. You have a 60%–70% chance of selling to an existing customer, while you have about a 20% chance of selling to a new one. Knowing your clients is essential to meeting their needs, and increasing loyalty.

Shopping cart abandonment often happens when customers have to wait too long for attention from a sales associate. WaitWell reduces walk-aways by up to 60%. That’s because when customers know they can save their position in line while wandering around your location or waiting comfortably nearby, they are less likely to get frustrated and abandon their purchase.

Nobody likes waiting. With WaitWell, you never have to answer the question, “how much longer?” again. Customers can access a status page on their mobile device to view their current position in line and estimated wait time. Customers can even send a text or in-app message if they have a quick question, which staff can discreetly answer without interrupting their current customer. WaitWell is the perfect solution to improve the customer experience.

Actionable service analytics and customer profiles allow you to gain amazing insights into service operations and customer behaviour. From anywhere, you can check up on your various service locations, even remotely. Compare average service times, wait times, and even customer reviews from multiple locations on one simple platform.

With WaitWell, optimizing service and increasing sales has never been easier.
