Lawrence, a Tensator Group Company and world leader in customer queue management solutions, today announced that according to a new study, back-to-school retailers are losing up to 39% of revenues due to long lines and in-line frustration. With overall K-12 and college spending combined expected to reach a whopping $55 billion this year*, back-to-school shopping is the second largest event for retailers, right behind the winter holidays. According to the Lawrence study, $21 billion of that revenue is lost to poor customer queue management. The company reported these key findings as part of a survey it conducted in the first two weeks of August with Surge Research, a leading independent national research firm.

Survey Data
In the nationwide opinion study of 500 parents with school-aged children, the vast majority, 75% of respondents say long lines are the worst part of the back-to-school shopping experience. Nearly four in ten (39%) parents, leave stores while back-to-school shopping without purchasing a single item because of long lines. Long lines are cited by 35%, 1 in 3 parents, as the primary reason for leaving the store -- worse than high prices, lack of supplies or inexperienced sales personnel.

“American consumers have spoken. They are willing to walk away if they get too frustrated waiting on long lines. When you add it all up, these ‘walkaways’ cost retailers billions of dollars during ‘Back to School,’ one of the hottest shopping seasons of the year,” said Bill Vetter, general manager and senior vice president at Lawrence. “Time is money -- reducing ‘walkaways’ and optimizing queue time is the end game. By deploying a smart queue management strategy, retailers can take control of and ideally manage the customer journey, from when they enter the store, at the retail point-of-sale, in-line at checkout and once they walk out the door.”

About Customer Queue Management Solutions
By implementing smart customer queue management solutions, retailers can easily and cost-effectively convert waiting time into extended shopping time, boost impulse sales, improve retail efficiencies and eliminate customer frustration and employee stress during the back-to-school shopping season, enriching the overall customer experience and ultimately increase margins.

Lawrence has developed the industry’s first end-to-end smart customer queue management solution that enables retailers to engage the back-to-school shopper with relevant opportunities to organize their merchandise, speed customer flow through the checkout queue by up to 25 percent, and optimize the potential for driving impulse purchases by up to 400 percent.
