The solution should provide for a ticket to be transferable to any counter without having the client pick another ticket and the last service offered should be the end of the ticket.

The required solution should have reporting indicators that is able to generate daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, biannually etc. performance reports of all the multiple customer relations counters, the average waiting time, and other functionalities available. The more the functionalities the better.
