43 Challenge candidate interview: Could this be the end of queues?

Sandile Dlamini hates bad service, but what he hates even more is hanging around in queues, waiting to book for a show, an event or anything, really. In fact, he hates it so much that he is working on a mobile booking system to totally eradicate queuing in South Africa. Sandile is currently involved in the SABS Design Institute's 43 Challenge offered by the Design & Innovation Entrepreneurship Centre. In this challenge candidates receive design, business and development assistance to bring their bright ideas to market - be they products or services.
