Al-Khidmat Foundation Labs in Pakistan Select SEDCO’s Advanced Queue Management System to Provide Superior Patient Care



Multan, Pakistan—With the aim of providing a more convenient journey and ensuring the safety of patients amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Al-Khidmat Foundation Labs – one of the largest charitable medical organizations in Pakistan with 119 labs across the country–have recently acquired SEDCO’s Patient Experience Management (PEM) System for one of its branches, with plans to cover more branches in the future.

The PEM solution comprises a ticketing kiosk for managing queues, and digital signage solution that displays queue information as well as other educational and promotional content to create greater patient awareness and engagement.

Patients visiting the lab can use the system’s ticketing kiosk to generate a printed token and wait for their turn. In the meanwhile, the digital signage solution integrated within the PEM system keeps them engaged and informed about the lab’s latest offerings and helps the organization create awareness about COVID-19 safety guidelines. The digital signage solution also displays the number of the next customer to be served, as well as the counter number they must head to.

So far, the PEM system has shown remarkable success in eliminating long queues and helping lab staff organize their operations to serve patients in a prompt and efficient manner. The integration of the PEM system has also played a pivotal role in helping the organization offer its services in a COVID-compliant manner by ensuring appropriate social distancing.

Khobaib Wahdi, CEO of Al-Khidmat Foundation Labs, spoke about the organization’s collaboration with SEDCO and stated, “Al-Khidmat Foundation Labs has been reviewing its operational processes to continue functioning in light of the new normal. The introduction of a Queue Management System is in line with our customer-oriented strategy to serve patients in a hassle-free manner and provide them with a safer journey. The Foundation looks forward to integrating this solution in other branches across Pakistan.”

Imran Sharif, Business Development Manager at SEDCO, commented “SEDCO is pleased to be working with Al-Khidmat Foundation Labs and helping them align their services with COVID-19 guidelines. We are committed to delivering digital transformation solutions to support the healthcare sector and take patient experience to the next level.”

SEDCO has assisted a number of hospitals, labs, and many other medical centers in complying with health and safety directives to remain functional amid the new challenges of the global health crisis. The company continues with its efforts to develop advanced queue management solutions that allow healthcare providers to streamline their operations at minimal cost and ensure the safety of their patients.

Beside the healthcare sector, SEDCO provides virtual queuing solutions to banks, telecom operators and governmental institutions where they empower their customers to book appointments in advance through their smartphones and control branch capacity to maintain social distancing.

Gulf Bank selects SEDCO solutions to upgrade to virtual queuing for a safer customer journey



Kuwait, Kuwait — In line with its digital transformation strategy, Gulf Bank has evolved its queue management system with SEDCO virtual queuing solutions to ensure a better and safer customer journey amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The virtual queuing system comprises a mobile appointment booking app and SMS notifications. These solutions are designed to help the bank serve customers without exposing them to the health risks that come with waiting in crowded waiting rooms and long queues.

The advanced mobile booking solution empowers Gulf bank’s customers to easily book appointments in advance and receive e-tickets where they will be informed of a tentative wait time, allowing them to arrive at the branch at an exact time without the need to wait at all. This will enable the bank to control the number of appointments per hour to eliminate crowded waiting areas.

SEDCO’s SMS notifications will further facilitate Gulf Bank’s initiative to introduce smart queuing and encourage customers to wait in their car or in other safer locations to ensure social distancing. This feature can be used to send an SMS alert to customers, notifying them about their turn status and directing them to enter the branch when their turn approaches.

Hussein Morsy, Business Development Manager at SEDCO spoke about the initiative and stated that “Gulf Bank is always adopting new technology and setting a precedent through effective digital transformation. With a virtual queuing system in place, the bank will successfully be able to serve customers during COVID-19 and beyond, thereby ensuring the health and safety of staff, customers, and the community.
