Pre-process, non-queue waiting in service situations is examined to determine its relationship with service satisfaction, using a double disconfirmation model. Three distinct time-related constructs of waiting are utilised: actual, expected and perceived pre-process waiting time. Results of two technology-based experiments that varied actual pre-process waiting time and managed expected pre-process waiting time confirmed the waiting time disconfirmation process and demonstrated a causal effect of that process on overall service perception. Implications for technology environments such as the web are explored. Copyright © 2005 Inderscience Enterprises Ltd.
