How can retailers best manage queues inside and outside of their stores to ensure social distancing? Should they invest in queue management software, or simply ask store associates to create manual queues using clipboard and pen? We investigate the pros and cons of both.

As stores prepare to reopen, many retailers are busy planning how they can modify their in-store processes and services to support social distancing measures.

But the fact is that social distancing is leading to queues, and customers are avoiding stores as a result. While retailers are aware that ensuring in-store social distancing is an absolute must and are looking at ways to manage their customers to ensure their safety and ease to build confidence to visit, some retailers may be weighing up the benefits of using a digital queueing app vs a clipboard and pen.
