5- Porter @ (https://www.apklis.cu/application/cu.control.queue)
Porter @ is an easy tool that has the purpose of organizing qeues, putting a stop to the hoarders. It is currently used in stores in provinces such as Holguín.
Easy to use, it is entered (preferably by one of the store's dependents) the identity card number of each person in the queue, which will be recorded in a database and will allow detecting if a customer dials twice.
In the current context, these apps allow you to remain isolated at home and comply with sanitary measures. (Text and Photo: ACN)
