SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Revel Systems®, the world's leading Point of Sale made for iPad, today announced that Legends Hospitality, which manages merchandising and restaurant services for major sporting venues, has selected Revel's iPad Point of Sale to be deployed across its retail establishments throughout the Indianapolis Motor Speedway (IMS). Revel's iPad Point of Sale powered the retail outlets during the 2015 Verizon IndyCar Series, a 17-race tour that included the highly-popular 99th Indianapolis 500 Mile Race in May.
The Indianapolis Motor Speedway is considered to be the highest-capacity sports venue in the world, capable of seating approximately 400,000 patrons with its combined permanent and infield seating. More than 200 Revel iPad Point of Sale terminals, comprised of new iPad Airs and peripherals such as credit card swipes, printers and cash drawers, will be deployed.
Additionally, the IMS is deploying Revel Ethernet Connect™, a proprietary cabled solution which allows enterprises to utilize a wired, always-on Ethernet connection to power their Revel iPad Point of Sale as an alternative to WiFi connectivity. The Revel Ethernet Connect cabled solution brings the first-ever failover connection to Revel's iPad Point of Sale in enterprise deployments, including failover from WiFi to Ethernet or from Ethernet to WiFi, and from one router to another. Revel's groundbreaking technology is patent-pending; the company is the first iPad Point of Sale provider to develop and deploy a wired Ethernet connectivity solution such as Revel Ethernet Connect.
"Our number one priority at any sporting venue is creating a positive environment for our guests, and Revel Systems is helping us to deliver on that commitment by providing a reliable, intuitive and secure retail experience for our patrons and our stadium merchants," said Dave Harris, vice president of technology for Legends Hospitality. "We knew no other POS provider could match Revel's technical features and customer service, which is why they were our only choice when it came to upgrading the IMS facilities."
Legends Hospitality selected Revel's iPad Point of Sale based on its robust cloud management console features, and well as its intuitive front-end that could be quickly adopted by volunteers and stadium personnel. Revel's open Application Programming Interface (API) was the final factor in Legend Hospitality's selection as it allows them to fully customize the POS systems to meet their specific business needs.
"American businesses run on Revel's iPad Point of Sale, and we're thrilled that the hundreds of thousands of fans visiting the Indianapolis Motor Speedway will get to experience our systems first hand for a faster, easier and groundbreaking transaction experience," said Lisa Falzone, co-founder and CEO of Revel Systems.
