Schools, Colleges, Universities and Museums

Educational institutions can face a wide range of traffic surge problems associated with course registration and enrollment, admission or course applications, housing and popular events. If you have lots of students or public interest you can face online traffic surges that flood your IT infrastructure, which are only designed to cope with normal day-to-day traffic.

Even if your site stays up, surges in requests can still pose a problem for your staff - who will be swamped with emails and calls if your website - or your administrators - are unable to respond in a timely manner. Downtime and slow response times damage your institution's reputation and harm the relationship with your students too.

Your systems stay online

You may just have one busy day a year for registrations, and it doesn't make financial sense to scale your system or staff team just for one day. A Virtual Waiting Room eliminates this need, and our easy integration means we can protect your online systems in less than a day.

Our patented first-come, first-served process gives your students a fair and convenient way to submit their registrations, and helps eliminate complaints and negative tweets. Students can go away and come back later without losing their place in the queue, and unlike other online queue offerings, no-one will miss their turn with a Queue-Fair queue.
