First Come First Served -Success or a Failure?

First Come First Served -Success or a Failure

Everyone knows how a queue works. It’s a line of people where the person at the front gets served first.

The principle of first-come-first-served is followed when the order of processing is not pre-planned. Scheduled ones work in a slightly different way, like in restaurants which take reservations in advance and allocate a seat when the customer arrives at their designated time.

The question here is whether this well-adopted method for servicing customers is worth using and whether it adheres to the principles of customer satisfaction?

Without a doubt this method is appropriate in certain industries however for the majority this method could spell disaster. Concert halls and sporting venues have both seen disastrous consequences as a result of a poorly managed first come first served process.

  • Tensabarrier® and Lawrence Post and Rope restrict such unauthorised access.
  • Use barriers alongside an Electronic Call Forwarding system to ensure that visitors are seen to queue in the correct order.
