Deliver the user experience your customers deserve

Ensure fairness

Queue-it lets you randomize all early visitors, just like a raffle. Anyone arriving after the sale/registration starts gets put in the waiting room in a first-come, first-served order—the gold standard of fairness.

Keep visitors informed

Remove stress and uncertainty from the wait by showing individualized wait information, pushing real-time update messages & letting visitors sign up for email notifications when it’s their turn in line.

Get full control

Queue-it gives a centralized overview of all traffic requests to your website, down to the individual page level. Manage traffic inflow & outflow & adjust the redirect speed on-the-fly.

Bolster your bot protection

Get double the protection when you combine Akamai's bot manager with Queue-it's bot mitigation tools. Just like an airport security checkpoint screens passengers before they board their flights, a virtual waiting room acts as a checkpoint between your web page and the purchase path.

“The peace of mind we get from using Queue-it is outstanding. The virtual waiting room reacts to and controls our traffic instantaneously, and if we need to make any changes, we can easily do it on the spot with the API or the dashboard. The benefit is real, and the ‘sérénite’ is real, too.”
