Say hello to a waitlist
without the wait
Save your customers countless hours of waiting in line, eliminate lines in front of your store or fitting room, and keep your occupancy rates safe. Shoppers can join your virtual line via text, QR code, or web sign-up. Once signed in, they can monitor their place in line and will get a text, email, or both when their turn is coming up. Waitwhile uses machine learning to monitor and help you improve wait times, sales staff availability, and guest services.
Brands that use Waitwhile’s virtual waitlist feature:
Louis Vuitton, IKEA, Best Buy, Patagonia, REI, and many more.
Allow customers to pick up their order curbside in a way that’s safe, convenient, and efficient. Shoppers can join your curbside waitlist once they arrive at your store. While their order is being filled, they’ll get wait time updates from the comfort of their vehicle until the moment their order is delivered directly to them.
Brands that use Waitwhile’s curbside pickup feature include IKEA and Best Buy.
Occupancy tracking for better customer flow
Keep track of customers entering and exiting your store manually or automatically. Once you reach capacity, shoppers will be prompted to join your virtual waitlist.
