Client Profile

Lenovo is a Chinese multinational technology company. It designs, develops, manufactures and sells personal computers, tablet computers, smartphones, workstations, servers, electronic storage devices, IT management software and smart televisions.


The IFA consumer electronics trade show in Berlin coincided with the launch of Lenovo’s latest smartphone and augmented reality (AR) product. As a result, the company expected significant traffic to its stand. Customers would be able to view and demo the latest Lenovo devices and talk to a Lenovo representative. Lenovo was concerned that this would cause queues and overcrowding, so wanted to find a technology solution to support its stand experience.

Queue Challenge


Lenovo worked with Qudini’s Virtual Queue Management system to improve the event experience.



• During IFA, visitors wishing to experience the Lenovo stand could join a digital queue from a touchscreen kiosk or via a host positioned at the stand entrance.
• The visitor would then receive a text message to confirm their queue position and estimated wait time.
• Visitors were then able to relax and explore the rest of IFA whilst they waited.
• Customers could even watch their queue position countdown from the weblink on their smartphone.
• When it was almost their turn, the customer received a text message to let them know.



• Staff on the Lenovo stand were able to use Qudini on the latest Motorola smartphone. Using these devices, staff could see the queue of waiting customers and mark which customer they were serving.
• Using the Qudini Shop Floor Management features, the stand team could also see and manage their own time, breaks and activities.

    More customers seen

    3,000 visitors were added to the digital queue over the two day show. With Qudini, fewer customers would walk away without service, wait times were less than previous years and the stand was more efficient, allowing Lenovo to provide brand experiences to more customers.

    Improved stand efficiency

    With customers waiting remotely, the stand did not become overcrowded. This reduced pressure on the staff who were able to sell to more customers and undertake more tasks on the stand as a result.

    Improved brand image

    The high-tech digital experience enabled Lenovo to project a stronger brand image to the thousands of customers they saw over the weekend. This improves customer perception of the Lenovo brand and increases the chance of making future sales with these customers and their friends.

    Reduced resource requirements

    As the stand was more efficient, Lenovo managed to support the same amount of customers with fewer team members than in previous years.

    Data capture opportunity

    Qudini’s software gave Lenovo the opportunity to sign-up customers to brand communications as they joined the queue. This data capture would not have been possible if customers waited in a physical queue.
