Griffin Technology Chooses Revel Systems iPad Point-Of-Sale Solution For All U.S.-Based Retail Locations

iPad Cloud-Based POS System Offers Style, Speed and Reliability to Griffin's Retail Shops

SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Revel Systems (www.revelsystems.com), the leader in iPad point-of-sale (POS) solutions, today announced that its cloud-based POS system has been chosen by Griffin Technology and is now live in all its United States-based MicroStores. Revel Systems' POS solution connects all five Griffin Technology retail locations through its cloud-based system so that data can be easily pulled in real-time, a major benefit over other server-based solutions.

"Griffin prides itself on being a technology innovator, so we had very high expectations for every aspect of our new MicroStores," said Jeff Herrick, Information Systems Manager at Griffin Technology. "After reviewing our vendor options, we found Revel Systems' iPad point-of-sale systems to be the most customizable solution, especially with the convenient integration to our existing back-end system. We've truly enjoyed the POS installation with Revel and are quite satisfied with the end result at our MicroStores."

For this rollout, Griffin and Revel Systems worked together for the customized solution to integrate into Griffin's existing backend ERP systems, allowing the POS software to communicate seamlessly with Griffin's current systems for reporting and inventory control. The updated version of Revel's Retail iPad POS solution that Griffin has selected was announced last month and includes enhanced customization features developed specifically with retail customers in mind as well as the very first variable pricing and variable weight pricing feature on any iPad POS solution. At half the price of legacy systems, Revel Systems POS solution also now features price override for retailers and the fastest deployment time on the market. Griffin Technology's IT team noted that once the specifics of the solution were determined, the setup took a matter of hours rather than days or months as is common with other solutions.

"Working with other technology companies like Griffin Technology is great because they know what they want, and Revel Systems has always stood by its mission to create customizable retail solutions to meet different companies' specific needs," said Chris Ciabarra, CTO and co-founder of Revel Systems.

The Griffin MicroStores, which opened in San Jose, Seattle, San Francisco, Nashville and Annapolis, are Griffin's first U.S.-based stores and currently have the Revel POS systems live with plans to expand to additional Griffin stores in 2013.
