Success Story

HERQUEUELESS has been in operation in the Department of Transport and Communications (DTC) in the city of Heraklion in Crete, Greece since November 2015. DTC is a vital division of the Region of Crete, executing a heavy load of public sector administrative services for a large number of citizens/customers.

E-services for citizens

Online Appointment Service

Using the online appointment service, customers/citizens can schedule their visit on a particular date and time and, if necessary, fill in and electronically submit the required application forms. Upon the completion of the booking process, an e-ticket is created and sent at the user’s email address. Automatic reminders are sent prior the scheduled appointment date.

Virtual Queue

The virtual queue operates alongside the appointment system, used by who that don’t have a booked appointment. Employees at reception desks can create and print personalized queue tickets that contain the necessary information for the customer request.

Real-time Notifications

Any TV or PC monitor can be turned into an information screen. Information screens display information regarding customer assignment to service desks with visual and sound announcements, estimated waiting times, as well as informative videos.

A specially designed version of the notification screen is available on mobile devices in order for customers to have on the go access to the status of their queue or appointment.
