Revel’s Year in Review: 5 Highlights of 2014
In 2014, Revel’s iPad point of sale helped thousands of businesses grow, from salons to restaurants, retailers to grocery stores. In the process, our business has expanded exponentially, with exciting new partnerships and groundbreaking capabilities that captured the attention of the commerce world. As we enter a new frontier, here’s a look back on 5 major accomplishments and announcements from 2014:
Largest iPad POS Deployment. In September, Revel rolled out the largest iPad POS system deployment to date when the global franchise Smoothie King selected our centralized management system for its 700 locations. Reliability, user-friendliness, scalability, and security helped Revel edge out the competition, Smoothie King CEO, Wan Kim said.
First Open-Source E-Commerce Platform. Web sales are a crucial component of any retail store’s bottom line. When Revel made its e-commerce platform available via all its open-source code, retailers gained the ability to fully customize our cutting-edge tools. Shipping to customers, optimizing product visibility, integrating Paypal and Apple Pay, and view more suddenly became easier than ever.
$100 Million in Funding. With $100 million in Series C funding secured in November, Revel is looking to grow the company to the next level, with the option to go public in two to three years. “We are profitable and a real company where if something bad happens, we’re not going to go under.” co-founder Chris Ciabarra tells Forbes.
Chosen by Intuit. Intuit chose Revel as its premier partner to launch the QuickBooks small business accounting package. “QuickBooks Point of Sale powered by Revel” will give retailers flexibility to track sales, inventory, staffing, and payroll, all without hours of training or any danger of downtime when the Internet is slow. Look for the revolutionary combined product in 2015!
European Expansion. Expect Revel to empower European merchants with the point-of-sale system that has helped so many U.S. businesses thrive and grow. In December, Revel sealed an amazing year with a $1.2 million grant from Invest Northern Ireland. The money will be used to open a UK sales and operations center in Belfast.
