A few years ago, two soon-to-be exNokians were standing in a long queue and thought about all the things they could do while waiting, wondering why there was no app for that. Soon after, Qtip.Me was born. “Qtip.Me has helped serve more than 115,000 customers, saved people who wait in queues more than 17,000 hours, and saved businesses who use the system more than 20,000 hours,” says Aseem Shakuntal, co-founder and CEO. Qtip.Me means that, instead of queueing for an hour, you can go to a coffee shop, do some grocery shopping, work or run errands. The app keeps you updated on your position in the queue, also making sure to tell you when it is time to return to the queue.
