Our Take-A-Turn systems provide your customers with a fair and organized way to wait for assistance. They can continue to browse while waiting, without the need to defend their place in line. Our systems can also support several lines. If you provide different services through different windows, we can provide one system to manage them all. These system are also referred to as take a number systems, takeaturn, q-matic, clear-q, and take-a-ticket systems. We can provide you with the take a number tickets, the take number dispenser, and either a floor or wall stand. These customer service and queuing systems provide you with true customer flow management.
The standard take-a-turn packages include a display, controller, ticket dispenser, and tickets. Customers can take a ticket and wait for their number to be called. When a staff member is ready to service the next customer, he or she would press a button, which advances the display to the next number. Displays are available in two and three digits, and in digit heights of 2.5", 5", 7", 10", and larger. Additional buttons can be added for advancing the now serving display. The buttons can be hard wired to the controller, or communicate with the controller wirelessly.

Each display will have 1 or 2 lines to show the next one or two persons to be served.
Each line will have the following:

- Three digit customer number 0 to 999. This number will appear on the main Display in the "Now Serving" position when the customer is called.
- Two digit number 0-99 to direct the customer to the desired window, position or service station
When the number for the next person to be served appears in the display, a chime will sound. The number will remain in the display for a programmable amount of time ( typically 5 or 10 seconds). The service is a Dot Matrix red LED display with 4" high characters. The customer number and posting are 5" high numeric digits.
