The Story Behind Revel Systems
Revel Systems originally started with a completely different premise: an online ordering app for the iPhone. However, while pitching their online ordering app to local restaurants co-founders, Lisa Falzone and Chris Ciabarra, realised that business owners’ biggest problem was their cash register. They wanted to address this by combining secure cloud-based technology with the inherent mobility of the iPad. The Point of Sale systems at the restaurants Ciabarra and Falzone visited all had the same qualities: bulky, archaic and expensive. Many of these systems had not been updated in years and had backoffice servers which required frequent and costly maintenance.
After talking to Michael Lappert, owner of Lappert’s Ice Cream in Sausalito, Lisa and Chris decided to pivot their business to develop a new type of Point of Sale system. At the time, the recently-released iPad seemed to be the perfect touch screen solution to replace old and expensive legacy systems. Thus started Revel Systems iPad Point of Sale to help entrepreneurs succeed and local economies thrive. Today, Revel Systems provides the #1 Point of Sale system for both small businesses and enterprises. Major companies powered by Revel Systems include Goodwill, Tully’s Coffee, Stanford University, Indy 500 and Cinnabon.
