Revel Systems Launches Retail Enterprise iPad Point-Of-Sale System With Goodwill & Belkin

Revel's Point-of-Sale Provides Most Customizable Solution for Retailers on the Market with Variable Pricing Capabilities, Enhanced Inventory Module and New Tie-in with Honeywell Hardware

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Revel Systems, the leader in iPad point-of-sale (POS) solutions, today announced two new retail customers as well as feature updates to its Retail POS solution and the introduction of the new Revel Retail Inventory Module for retail customers. Goodwill Industries has replaced its previous point-of-sale system in 22 Goodwill stores throughout the state of Florida, while iPad accessory giant Belkin ( has also installed Revel Systems iPad POS in its retail store located in Los Angeles' Westfield Mall.


"Belkin reached out to Revel for a POS system for our first retail mall store this summer after a less than satisfactory experience with another vendor," said Maureen Lewis, director of retail operations for Belkin. "The personalized service has been stellar and custom solutions really have made running the business effortless. The staff is happy with the ease of the system, and I love the fact that I can check transactions and sales anywhere on my iPad, laptop and (soon) phone."

Goodwill Industries has also purchased Revel Systems' retail POS solution in 23 stores across Florida. The customized solution with detailed inventory control features provides the benefits of a full-scale enterprise POS solution at less than half the cost of Goodwill's previous solution.

Revel Intros Variable Pricing to iPad POS Space

The updated version of Revel's Retail iPad POS solution includes enhanced customization features developed specifically with retail customers in mind. New to this version, Revel Systems has introduced the very first variable pricing and variable weight pricing feature on any iPad POS solution that allows retailers to accommodate multiple-item purchases or multiple weighted items at a discount easier than ever before. At less than half the price of other legacy POS systems, Revel Systems' cloud-based nature also allows for the greatest level of individual customer customization on the market so that retailers can work with exactly the system they need to conduct business at their best without the hassle of dealing with an in-house IT team and back-office server.

Also new to this version is the Revel Retail Inventory Module. The inventory module is compatible with iPhone, iTouch and iPad Mini and allows users to update, change and print labels for inventory in real time. To maintain inventory, the system will also send customizable alerts for low inventory, etc. and allow users to place orders for new inventory directly from the iOS device. As part of the inventory module, Revel Systems has also partnered with Honeywell's Bluetooth barcode scanner for mobile scanning. The Honeywell handheld scanner is compatible with Apple iTouch.

Revel Retail POS also allows customers to:

  • Process credits, exchanges and returns
  • Track sales summary reports by employee for easy commission management
  • Integrate with QuickBooks and other accounting software
  • Integrate directly with Bluetooth barcode scanner
  • Track customer order history, contact information and house accounts
  • Search for items by name, SKU, category, and more
  • Manage inventory, product costing and set threshold alerts

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
As organizations realize the scope of the Internet of Things, gaining key insights from Big Data, through the use of advanced analytics, becomes crucial. However, IoT also creates the need for petabyte scale storage of data from millions of devices. A new type of Storage is required which seamlessly integrates robust data analytics with massive scale. These storage systems will act as “smart systems” provide in-place analytics that speed discovery and enable businesses to quickly derive meaningf...
DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, rich desktop and tuned mobile experiences can now be created with a single codebase – without compromising functionality, performance or usability. In his session at DevOps Su...

Learn how the Adobe Marketing Cloud can help marketers embrace opportunities for personalized, relevant and real-time customer engagement across offline (direct mail, point of sale, call center) and digital (email, website, SMS, mobile apps, social networks, connected objects).
The buzz continues for cloud, data analytics and the Internet of Things (IoT) and their collective impact across all industries. But a new conversation is emerging - how do companies use industry disruption and technology enablers to lead in markets undergoing change, uncertainty and ambiguity? Organizations of all sizes need to evolve and transform, often under massive pressure, as industry lines blur and merge and traditional business models are assaulted and turned upside down. In this new da...

The Internet of Everything is re-shaping technology trends–moving away from “request/response” architecture to an “always-on” Streaming Web where data is in constant motion and secure, reliable communication is an absolute necessity. As more and more THINGS go online, the challenges that developers will need to address will only increase exponentially. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Todd Greene, Founder & CEO of PubNub, exploreed the current state of IoT connectivity and review key trends and t...
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
In today's enterprise, digital transformation represents organizational change even more so than technology change, as customer preferences and behavior drive end-to-end transformation across lines of business as well as IT. To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace. Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...
The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound...
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
Apps and devices shouldn't stop working when there's limited or no network connectivity. Learn how to bring data stored in a cloud database to the edge of the network (and back again) whenever an Internet connection is available. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Ben Perlmutter, a Sales Engineer with IBM Cloudant, demonstrated techniques for replicating cloud databases with devices in order to build offline-first mobile or Internet of Things (IoT) apps that can provide a better, faster user e...
Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...
Culture is the most important ingredient of DevOps. The challenge for most organizations is defining and communicating a vision of beneficial DevOps culture for their organizations, and then facilitating the changes needed to achieve that. Often this comes down to an ability to provide true leadership. As a CIO, are your direct reports IT managers or are they IT leaders? The hard truth is that many IT managers have risen through the ranks based on their technical skills, not their leadership ab...
