Wait by Kuusoft Powers Social Distancing and Contact Tracing in Cowichan Valley for a Safe Holiday Season
Powering Social Distancing During the Wintertime Amidst COVID-19
Burnaby, BC (December 7, 2020): Wait, a queue management app by Kuusoft, collaborates with Community Futures Cowichan to provide businesses in Cowichan Valley a business tool to reinforce social distancing and contact tracing. Wait by Kuusoft (JoinTheWait.com) moves the physical queue online and enables contact tracing to keep customers and employees safe.
It has been difficult for businesses big and small, especially heading into the winter holiday season. Many have been trying to balance between customer service and COVID-19 restrictions. Besides the physical distance, limited capacity, and indoor mask protocols, businesses must keep a record of all visitors and customers for at least 30 days in an effort of contact tracing. As a result, business owners face more challenges keeping up with COVID-19 regulations while fearing a declined customers’ experience given the cold and rainy weather.
Community Futures Cowichan, along with local chambers of commerce, Tourism Cowichan, and business improvement associations, have partnered with Kuusoft to provide local businesses access to the Wait Queue Management System, considered the most cost-effective and safest way for retailers to automate lineups during COVID-19 with built-in contact tracing. Furthermore, Community Futures Cowichan assessed funding from Western Economic Diversifications Rural Opportunities Fund to help cover the cost for businesses who could benefit from using this Wait queue management technology.
For businesses that want an easier way to control traffic flow in-store and manage contact tracing, all they need to do is to create a new account with Kuusoft and register for a code for their business. Then, pint out the pre-designed Wait Open Sign and display it on the storefront. Owners and managers can also easily monitor the Wait system on any smart device.
For customers, the Wait app is free to use forever. The web app not only frees customers from physically waiting in line, but it also helps manage customer expectations on wait time. Meanwhile, if customers have ever crossed paths with a confirmed COVID-19 case, they will be notified to quarantine.
