Solution delivers a powerful, convenient way for food truck business owners to respond to real-time conditions and attract new customers
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., —Revel Systems, the leader in iPad point-of-sale (POS) solutions, today announced the release of an iPad-based restaurant POS system specially designed for food trucks on the go, complete with Twitter integration. The system offers peace of mind to food truck business owners, freeing them from worries over router connections, loose cables and power reliability. Integration with Twitter, which is embedded into the main console, enables users to send Tweets out if business is slow and to alert followers of special offers and changes of location.
The food-truck solution is the latest flavor in Revel Systems’ revolutionary point-of-sale software line-up, which includes versions for quick-service restaurants (QSR), counter service restaurants and retail. The food-truck solution includes Revel Systems’ new Revel Router—a “made-for-iPad” device developed by Revel Systems in conjunction with Apple that allows customers to run their iPad POS systems without additional Internet connection hardware or wiring. Instead, Revel Router accesses an Internet connection directly via the user’s Verizon 3G- or 4G-enabled Apple iPad, eliminating the need for an Ethernet router or a MiFi 3G hotspot.
Combined with the Twitter integration, this makes the solution a powerful and easy-to-use asset for food truck business owners. Having a slow day? Just click the “Tweet” icon on the main console to push out deals and discounts to thousands of your Twitter followers and let them know exactly where you are, all in real-time and without the expense of a Groupon.com blast.
“Customers talk and Revel listens. Our customers were expressing frustration with installing other systems inside food trucks, so we set out to help them with a purpose-built solution,” said Revel Systems CEO Lisa Falzone. “Being able to Tweet within the point-of-sale system on the iPad has generated a tremendously enthusiastic response from our food truck restaurant POS solution beta testers, who until now have had to put up with bulky connectivity hardware such as routers and cabling. It’s a simple way for them to attract more customers.”
The food truck edition of the POS terminal with the Revel Router is currently available is for $1,999, plus a small monthly software as a service fee.
