AVOIDING LINES

QLESSSome restaurants give you little gadgets that vibrate when your table or order is ready. A company called “QLess” has another way to help customers avoid lines.

With Qless (get it: queue-less?), you get a cell phone call when your number is up (so to speak). This allows you to wander further afield than you could with a buzzer in hand. The calls are paid for by QLess and the only thing a business needs to set it up is a computer and web browser. Costs vary depending on the size of the business — and they wouldn’t tell us how much — but they claim even tiny companies are using it.

The company recently became a finalist in the “Best Computer Services Company of the Year for 2013 Award.”
