As a small business operator, a long list of POS functionality may sound appealing. However, chances are you will only need a handful of key features that drive true return on investment (ROI) for your brand—at least at first.

Of course, as you grow, you’ll want a tech stack that can grow with you. That’s why flexibility is key. Revel’s open cloud order management platform was designed to be flexible.

What do Revel and the Apple iPad have in common? They have the same birth year, and they both operate on Apple’s intuitive iOS. What that means for you is quick, easy adoption that allows you—and your staff—to quickly adapt to its interface. Where point of sale systems for small businesses are concerned, you’ll want (and need) an option that makes training a breeze!
