Thanks to 3ack customers nolonger have to spend time waiting to be served. They can join the queue and walk away only to return about 5 minutes before their turn. This is possible because 3ack makes accurate time estimation by combining realtime event data from the salons with Artificial intelligence/machine learning algorithm.

Here's how it works: First, you add your salon's location to the system and activate it. Then, you print out a QR code and put it up at your salon.
When your customers arrive, they just need to scan the QR code using their phone and enter their name and mobile number. They can choose to wait at the salon or leave and get an SMS notification about 5 minutes before it's their turn.
If they're in a hurry, they can even offer to swap places with someone else in the queue anonymously.
