An efficient queuing system is important when managing a lot of people. For example, in airports there will be timeslots during the day where the passenger flow is higher than at other times. Although easy to predict, as passenger flows follow the flight schedule, it can be a real challenge to handle the passenger peaks but there is a solution to the challenge.
At Copenhagen Optimization we have developed a queuing system that virtually queues passengers. Our queuing system helps airports all over the world to predict passenger flows, reduce waiting times, and help to manage staff resources resulting in higher customer satisfaction.
On this page, you can read more about queuing systems and the advantages of implementing a system that virtually queues passengers.
What is a queuing system?
A queuing system is a system that helps with queuing customers, passengers, or guests to control the flow of people and streamline the queuing experience.
As a business, you often do not know when there will be many people that need help. You can allocate staff resources based on former experiences, but you will never really know if the resources fit the number of customers.
In the air transport industry it’s a different scenario. As passengers arrive to catch a flight, forecasting busy times is uncomplicated. Controlling passenger flows is a big challenge though. By implementing a queuing system in an airport, the airport is enabled to respond to busy time periods and make sure that wait times are reduced.
Advantages of a Queuing System
There are several advantages of queuing systems. A queuing system is a great way to improve the customer experience and can be used in many different ways depending on your business needs.
Queuing systems can be a great way to improve customer satisfaction, service efficiency and reduce wait times. Customers hate waiting in lines. Therefore, a queueing system – such as a virtual queuing option – is a good idea as the system gives the passengers more freedom to browse shops or sit at a cafe having a coffee while waiting in line.
Another advantage of queuing systems is that this type of system makes it easier for the business to allocate the right amount of staff resources when needed. The queuing system will show which times a day, during a month, or a year most customers will be present needing help. The business can now make sure the right number of staff is present to help the customers.

Types os queuing systems
There are various types of queueing systems available, each with its advantages and disadvantages.
The most common type of queueing system is the single queue with multiple servers. This system is often used in restaurants or banks. It is simple to set up and manage, but insufficient if the number of servers is not adapted to the demand.
Another type of queueing system is the multiple queue system with multiple servers. This system is often used in call centers. It can provide a higher level of service by allowing customers to be served by the next available server but can be more difficult to manage.
Finally, the last type of queueing system is the virtual queue. This system is often used in online businesses and airports. The advantage of a queuing system is that it can provide a seamless experience for passengers and allow the passengers to do other things while waiting in line. The disadvantage is that it can be difficult to implement and manage.
