SAN FRANCISCO and LAS VEGAS, Aug. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- (RetailNOW 2013) - Today at the Retail Solutions Providers Association's RetailNOW2013 conference and expo, Revel Systems Inc. (www.revelsystems.com), the leader in iPad point-of-sale solutions for restaurant, retail and grocery, is highlighting the system's latest features for retailers, including loyalty programs and gift card features that are directly integrated into the iPad POS. As part of this push, Revel has also announced a partnership with LoyalTree, creator of the nation's leading mobile-to-POS consumer loyalty solutions. This partnership enables retailers and other business owners to seamlessly integrate LoyalTree directly into Revel's POS system for fast and easy setup for the business owner and ease of use for the consumer.
"Loyalty programs and gift cards are important parts of today's business model, particularly to retailers," said Chris Ciabarra, CTO and co-founder of Revel Systems. "True to the way of doing things at Revel, we have worked very closely with our customers to build in the most desired features – such as gift and loyalty programs – seamlessly into our iPad point-of-sale solution. With LoyalTree now a part of the Revel Systems Marketplace with other first-class apps, business owners can get up and running on the program in no time at all."
With more than half of gift card users requiring more than one trip to the store to spend the balance of the card, and the average gift card user spending an extra 20 percent beyond the value of the card, getting these programs up and running should be top of mind for business owners. Business owners that are using Revel's iPad POS system can simply go into the Revel Systems Marketplace to download LoyalTree and other third-party apps in just a few clicks. The system then walks users through an automated set-up that takes just minutes install for users to be able to immediately use the app.
"At LoyalTree, we feel it's very important for rewards programs to be closely aligned with the business' vision, as well as the point-of-sale system," said Jake Klinvex, COO of LoyalTree. "The way that Revel Systems has allowed third-party apps to directly integrate into the iPad POS makes it easier than ever for users launch and use LoyalTree, making it an even more accessible aspect of the business."
The integration of the loyalty program directly into Revel's iPad POS allows for:
- Convenience: Business owners can create and manage reward cards directly from their management console or directly within Revel's iPad app.
- Customization: Businesses can include their name and logo, adding a personal touch to the reward program as well as an additional way to advertise the business.
- Choice: Revel offers the choices a physical gift card or a "green" option that allows business owners to issue a 10 digit PIN in lieu of a physical gift card.
Revel Systems will also be exhibiting in booth # 525 at RetailNOW 2013 (Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, August 4-7).
