QLess Saves You from Standing in Long Line
By Mandira Srivastava, TMCnet Contributor
Many people avoid casting their vote because they don’t want to stand on long voting lines. Similar concern was also expressed by president Obama while delivering his acceptance speech just after his win; "By the way, we have to fix that," in reference to long voting lines.
QLess is a startup that has developed a technology that allows users to wait in line – without physically standing in line. During this presidential poll recently, the City of Denver leveraged QLess technology to quickly and effectively get people in and out of polling stations, with little physical wait time. This technology allows users to enter a virtual, mobile queue via the Web or by using a touchscreen kiosk.
QLess technology is very convenient to use. Users can also make adjustments to their place in line. If they’re running late, for example, they could push themselves back in line. You can also monitor the voting time with QLess Queue Monitor.
Voters receive notifications through text or phone call as their turn comes.
QLess Mobile Queue Managment is easy to use, Web-based, customizable and scalable technology.
"QLess has been winning awards for years and saving millions of citizens well over a century of waiting in line,” QLess CEO, Dr. Alex Bäcker, said in a statement. “There is not a single QLess government establishment that has gone back to standing in line after trying QLess. The City of Denver is now applying QLess to a new application, blazing a path to end to the era of endless lines.”
“Perhaps most importantly, QLess will help turn out more voters while further securing the voting process."
