Hyderabad based startup founded by 3 management graduates has launched an interesting website called Nomorequeue. As the name suggests ‘NO MORE QUEUE’, you don’t have to wait in Q for movie tickets. You can book your tickets online through this website. The service is available in Delhi, Hyderabad and Dehradun.
When I looked at the city list, Dehradun came as a surprise to me. Typically people launch their services in their home city (in this case Hyderabad) and then any of the other metros to see if the idea flies. Dehradun is a strange choice but I am sure they have their reasons.
NomoreQueue is coming from GAP Miners who already have another website to their name. Upto75.com is their first venture. Upto75 is a city specific deal aggregator for retail sales. GAP Miners are trying to mine the gaps in the online space and their first two ventures are trying to do just that.
Are the GAP miners in the right space? Indian movie industry is growing at a rate of 13% annually and the revenues are expected to touch 17,600 crores by 2012. India has the largest movie going population and the tickets are still the cheapest in the world. That is incredible for any industry and GAP Miners see a huge opportunity here.
It’s been a while since I waited in a Q for a movie ticket. For me the waiting time is a killer and feel that the waiting time can be spent somewhere else. Nomorequeue is just that kind of website to save time, so that you don’t spend your time in trivial activities like waiting.
If you are in Delhi, Hyderabad or Dehradun check out Nomorequeue.

PS: Looking at the web address nomorequeue has a sub-domain for movies (movies.nomorequeue.com). Does that mean they are trying to avoid Q’s in other spaces as well?
