Grocery Tech Bar

Case Study:

Supporting a major UK grocery retailer in providing a seamless and productive head office IT support experience at its internal Tech Bar

Qudini work with one of the UK’s largest grocery retailers to improve their head office tech support experience and resulting employee productivity.


Creating a digital workplace environment by providing their employees with robust and well-supported technology devices, is essential to our client in ensuring employee productivity and a good experience of working at their retail head office.

In July 2016,  our client opened a new “Tech Bar”. This innovative solution enables head office employees to access their IT team, and to take their devices to them for repairs, advice and service.

Repair Challenge


To support the Tech Bar initiative and ensure a seamless and productive experience for both the head office IT team and head office colleagues, our gorcery retailer client deployed Qudini’s Appointment Booking Software, Event Management Software and Queue Management System.

Appointment bookings: The IT team are able to manage their availability and create pre-booked appointments for colleagues within the Qudini calendar interface.

In addition, head office employees now have access to an online appointment booking interface within their intranet. This enables them to see the IT team’s availability and create appointments. The colleague will receive a confirmation and reminder SMS and email message. This includes a Google calendar link..

Queue management: Due to a high-number of colleagues walking up to the head office Tech Bar and requesting immediate support and services, our deployed Qudini’s queue management software.

It allows colleagues to join a digital queue for service. The colleague will then receive SMS  updates as their turn draws near and can watch their queue position from a smartphone weblink and a digital TV screen by the Tech Bar.

Event Management: To help employees to learn how best to use their devices and software, the Tech Bar hosts workshops and training sessions.

In order to maximise booking and attendance, it uses the Qudini Event Management Software in order to create event sessions. Colleagues can browse upcoming events and book sessions.
