The Virtual Lobby is a mini-site that looks similar to a mobile application. It provides an environment of a waiting room for customers who booked an appointment and are waiting to receive the service...
As the retail industry grows and advances, the need for a solution that encompasses each aspect of a customer journey becomes more and more necessary. Most retail businesses have added some sort of appointment scheduling tool to their arsenal, but that is no longer enough to sustain and track their progress.
Most service providers are now taking steps to reopen their customer service locations or shops under the strict regulations of public health and social distancing. When examined closely, it becomes apparent many of these steps make sense from a business perspective regardless of the current constraints.
While most of the world is still somewhere in-between lock-down and re-opening, we turn our eyes to the future to ask: what will be the new normal for customer service, after the dust has settled? In this post, we'll focus on one aspect of service center operation, which is queuing.
Stores and service centers are now starting to reopen. Businesses and consumers are concerned that required safety measures would render the new customer experience unpleasant. Technology, such as Customer Journey Optimization, can help alleviate some of these fears.
We've been preparing you for the launch of Q-Flow 6 since November last year, and now it is finally happening!

Many retail businesses nowadays add appointment scheduling to their customer experience offering.

And, it makes their customers happier with shorter wait times and more focused interactions.

Providing a software solution for banks might seem like a daunting task, especially when the issue at hand is customer experience and service. Phrases like 'customer data' and 'systems integration' spring to mind, followed by 'information security' and 'oh no, how much is this going to cost us?'
After more than a decade of operating strictly as a B2B vendor, delivering enterprise software solutions, the growing use of Q-nomy's "myVisit" mobile app is bringing us closer than ever to consumers. And even though our clients are still the businesses – once these businesses offer the app to their end-customers, we become part of the B2B2C chain, whether we want it or not. And yes, we want it!
When asked what Q-nomy does, I usually reply that we do customer experience management software, which includes operational components that enable the customer's journey (or the journey of their requests) through the customer service pipelines. We also do content delivery, personalized and delivered to customers on this journey through a variety of digital channels.
It is an accurate reflection of our reality and it can be backed up by many businesses who actually went ahead implementing Q-nomy's solutions; however for a newcomer to the Q-nomy world, this might seem to be an overstatement. Sometimes people trying to comprehend what is it that Q-nomy actually does think a moment and then say "oh, so you do queue management don't you?". Isn't that an anti-climax…
