Point of Sale software, also known as checkout software, is used by retailers large and small to handle sales transactions. With the advent of smaller, relatively inexpensive devices, the cost of systems has reduced drastically. Many POS solutions now run on iPads and other tablets.
Revel Systems’ software is a Point of Sale solution specifically for iPad, which can be connected to a receipt printer, cash drawer, and card swipe unit. The software manages transactions in real time, so managers can track store or restaurant sales using any Internet browser, as they happen.
For restaurants, Revel also has a kitchen display system, using an Apple iPad, rather than linking to a kitchen printer.
