Queuing & Contact Tracing Platform

DIVVY’s new Queuing and Contact Tracing Platform helps any business that is visited by the public to navigate venue capacity, social distancing and record keeping regulations with ease. It gives customers the peace of mind and confidence to visit shops, pubs, restaurants, galleries, gyms, hairdressers – any business, large or small, with publicly accessible premises.   

Businesses with premises visited by the public face unique challenges under COVID-19. Governments have introduced capacity limits to ensure social distancing can be maintained. Businesses are required to keep records and contact information for all visitors.

Not only are there government-mandated obligations to adhere to, but businesses also need to consider their customers’ mindset. Customers and patrons need to be assured that their visit will be safe, and that the business has taken all possible precautions, or they simply won’t come. 

At DIVVY, we optimise bookable assets through smarter technology. After witnessing the challenge faced by publicly accessible businesses during COVID, we turned our efforts to developing our Queuing and Contact Tracing Platform.

Our Queuing and Contact Tracing Platform enables any shop, venue, or premises open to the public to communicate with its customers when its peak periods are, which are its busiest and quietest days, and, in the event of queuing, the wait time to enter the venue.

By helping customers plan their visit before they leave home, our Platform makes it easy for them to avoid busy periods, save time, and visit with peace of mind. To find out how DIVVY is helping Australian supermarket giant Woolworths take care of their customers with their Q-Tracker tool, click here.

Our Platform also has pre-book capabilities, giving customers the opportunity to book their visit in advance to avoid queuing. By allowing businesses to control the time, duration and number of customers accessing their premises, and even manage separate areas within the venue, it helps businesses to adhere to venue capacity limits and maintain social distancing within the premises. Visitor record keeping has been mandated by many Australian state and territory governments.

Our Queuing and Contact Tracing Platform allows businesses to capture visitor information quickly and easily, including contact details and day and time of visit.

Our Platform makes it possible to track interactions and crossovers between visitors and employees, helping with contact tracing should it be required.

Some businesses require visitors to complete health attestation questionnaires, declaring any symptoms before entering the premises, and our Platform can manage this too. Using our Platform, it’s quick and simple to conduct these questionnaires, collect the required information and store visitors’ responses.

Effortlessly fulfill your COVID Safe obligations, give yourself peace of mind, and your customers the confidence to visit your business with DIVVY’s Queuing and Contact Tracing Platform.

DIVVY supports Woolworths with the development of Q-tracker

As the COVID-19 situation continues to unfold, the Australian tech company DIVVY supported Woolworths in building an online booking system -Q-tracker that allows shoppers to assess crowd capacity before making their way to their local store. The customer tool is in addition to the existing measures Woolworths has put in place for COVID-19.

This new technology will monitor queue lengths outside shops with restricted customer numbers – and will help shoppers pick a less busy period when there is no waiting time. The Q-tracker makes use of real-time data to show customers whether stores have had to implement a queue at the entry to support social distancing and any wait time associated with it.

DIVVY’s Chief Information Officer, Anton Mills said:

“This technology was built with the ability to translate to other industries who are also facing similar challenges. It has been built to be agnostic to the industry and can be rapidly integrated with organisations to assist them to adapt to queuing and distancing measures throughout COVID-19.

I’m proud of the team for turning this around in one week, to ensure our client Woolworths Supermarkets could roll this tool out across its four stores in Victoria.”

Currently, this new online booking technology is being trialled at four Woolworths stores in Victoria including Taylors Lakes, Hampton Park, South Melbourne, and St Helena. With this system, customers can book a time to do their shopping without the need to stand in a queue if one exists and be able to safely practice social distancing.

How does it work?

  1. Head to http://www.woolworths.com.au/shop/discover/q-tracker and simply search for their preferred store by postcode or suburb.
  2. Use the key, to view the estimated queue wait time to enter the Woolworths stores closest to you.
  3. Based on the entered location, it will show the closest stores and also highlight it on the map.
  4. To help you plan when to shop, click the store card which will expand to show when to enter the store and when it is busiest during the week.
  5. The tool updates every 5 mins so you’ll have the latest information whether you’re about to leave home or on your way.

This technology – Q Tracker, can be integrated with other businesses & organisations to assist them to adapt to queuing and distancing measures related to COVID-19.

Woolworths Director of Stores, Robert Moffat said:

“Keeping our customers and teams safe continues to be our top priority at Woolworths.Q-Tracker is a new customer tool across all Woolworths Supermarkets. By helping customers plan when and where they shop before they leave home, Q-Tracker makes it easier to avoid busy periods, save time, and shop with health and safety in mind. Even though most of our stores do not need to implement queuing at the moment, this tool has been developed as another measure to support the safety of our team and customers.”
