Meet Rohit Garg, the founder of Qwaiting, a pioneering queue management system revolutionizing customer experience worldwide.

Can you share the story bеhind thе incеption of Qwaiting and what motivatеd you to crеatе a smart customеr waiting system?

Rohit Garg: Once I went out for dinner in a famous restaurant with my friend. After reaching there, we noticed there were long waiting lines for table reservations. So, we stood there and waited for a long time to get a seat.

Though this is a very common issue in crowded places, it wastes a lot of time. I got frustrated and this made me think of finding a solution that can manage long queues in a better way. This experience motivated me to design an effective system to handle long waiting lines and reduce customers’ waiting time.

During my journey, I met different people and business owners to know what common issues they face while handling long queues. Finally, after 2 years of complete dedication and hard work, Qwaiting was ready to launch in the market.

In the initial stages, it was hard for us to attract customers but later we decided to provide free trials of our system for some time to local business owners. This showed us some positive results and they were impressed with how our system helps them manage their business queues and boost their sales.
