SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- San Francisco-based companies Revel Systems winner of iPad business app of the year award and Perkville have teamed up to provide customers with a new way to earn rewards points that is efficient for consumers and streamlines the rewards process for merchants.
Perkville turns your email address into a virtual rewards card. Their system stores the rewards information from your favorite restaurants and retailers, eliminating the need to download an app or carry rewards cards in your wallet. Additional perks include daily email updates with point totals and their referral program, which allows customers to refer friends and family to the merchant, earning them extra points.
Perkville is even easier now that it has paired up with Revel Systems iPad point of sale technology (POS). The union allows restaurant owners and retailers to use the Revel System iTouch and iPad display units to operate the Perkville rewards program, so there is no extra equipment required. As the store or restaurant employee processes the order on the iPad, customers can enter their rewards information using the iTouch display unit. The iTouch then communicates with the point of sale system and sends rewards data to Perkville. In seconds, the customer has not only paid for their meal or merchandise, but has also signed up for the rewards program and earned their first points. Now that they are registered customers, they can simply enter their phone number the next time they return to pull up their information and to track and use their rewards. Since the rewards points are specific to the merchant, Perkville fosters loyal repeat business.
Perkville rewards and Revel Systems point of sale system are bringing essential benefits to both customers and merchants. First, there are no delays in serving customers. Customers sign up for rewards benefits immediately, while store or restaurant employees are free to process the order or help other customers. Second, there is no need for extra equipment, cards, or apps. The display units are not attached to a hard drive and all information is transmitted through the point of sale technology. Finally, Perkville and Revel Systems have simplified the sign up process for rewards, making it safe, secure, fast, and easy!
In the spirit of collaboration Revel Systems has opened up its API now allowing other companies to come in and find more ways to utilize this great tool. Integrating POS technology with programs such as Perkville is paving the way for the future of local commerce. Join the revolution and find out what all the fun is all about!
