HurryQ, queuing digitally,
Have you had enough of long queues, like the ones in front of the Anne Frank House or the Van Gogh Museum? The HurryQ app will make these queues disappear by entering you in a digital queue, so you can spend that time doing other things. HurryQ subsequently provides suggestions for nearby places where you can spend this extra time. The government’s response is also very enthusiastic, as it concerns a crowd management tool.
