SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Revel Systems, the leading iPad Point of Sale (POS) platform, will roll out the largest deployment of iPad POS systems to date in Smoothie King Franchises Inc. stores across the world this fall. In keeping with its innovative business style, the New Orleans-based smoothie franchise chose Revel's top-rated iPad POS solution as the primary system for its 700 global locations for its speed, reliability and user-friendly technology.
"This rollout is about bringing the best elements together, to design a guest experience unlike any other," said Wan Kim, owner and CEO of Smoothie King. "Smoothie King has already changed the way the world thinks about nutrition and health, and our choice of Revel as a primary point of sale represents an investment in how technology can improve our guest experience in-store as well as our operational visibility as a whole. With this system, we're providing our franchisees with a small in-store footprint that is able to better serve our guests not only now, but well into the future."
Smoothie King selected the Revel platform for its infinite scalability and ability to streamline operations, from guest order entry and payment processing to inventory and back-end management and reporting. The implementation will give Smoothie King a cohesive overview of all stores while ensuring smooth, fast, and secure transactions for its customers across the world. Revel has emphasized security since its inception, and Revel's ability to ensure the safety of Smoothie King's data and that of its guests was a major factor in Smoothie King's choice of Revel for the rollout.
With Revel's rapid plug-and-play deployment capability, coupled with the fact that Smoothie King's young team members are already comfortable using iPads, Smoothie King franchisees can be up and running in just a few weeks, with a very small learning curve. Revel's franchise management features make it easy for franchisees to manage their Smoothie King locations, and as an affordable point of sale solution, Revel offers a low barrier to entry for franchisees.
To support the largest deployment of a franchise POS system on an iPad to date, Revel developed several custom features for Smoothie King, including brand-level customization, centralized management tools for implementing changes easily at all locations, in-depth enterprise-level reporting, and the industry's most flexible platform to meet the ever-changing demands of Smoothie King's guests.
"We're thrilled to be both a POS provider and a partner to Smoothie King in powering their future growth," said Lisa Falzone, CEO and co-founder of Revel Systems. "We're confident that our robust point of sale technology will improve their guest experience and reduce overhead costs for franchisees while aligning perfectly with Smoothie King's innovative vision. Revel Systems is eager to fuel Smoothie King's continued growth and franchise development with our quick, intuitive and powerful POS system."
