What our clients say

The challenge

The leisure sector has grown significantly over the past 2-3 years, swelling the travel agency’s customer base. As a result, the travel agency has struggled to provide every in-store customer with exceptional customer service, with walk-in customers often having to wait in physical queues during peak periods. The tour operator’s store teams tried to solve this by tracking customers within the queue on a clipboard and pen. However, customers still had to wait in the store and store associates were unable to provide them with estimated wait times.

Furthermore, as holidays are a high-cost purchase, some customers need to go away and reflect before purchasing. The tour operator had no way of allowing customers to return to see their advisor at an agreeable time.

Tui deployed the Qudini Queuing System and Appointment Scheduling software to better choreograph their customer experience and shop floor operations. They selected Qudini due to its flexible, easy-to-deploy, out-of-box software, as well as the company’s passion for improving customer experience. Using Qudini, the travel agency now provides a calm waiting experience, leading to a more productive shop floor and an improved booking conversion.
