The Queue Notifier is a program that is installed on a Windows computer and provides a total count of customers waiting for service as well as notifications.


When a customer is checked in, Queue Notifier will display a pop-up message in the bottom right corner of the screen and play a chime.   The notifier window's counter will update to show the total number of customers waiting.


The Notifier does not require the user to be logged into the web client and can be configured to stay "on-top" of other applications so that it is always visible.
