Revel Review & Alternatives (2021 Guide)

Revel Systems’ Restaurant POS System was among the first cloud-based POS to be designed for the iPad. This startup was founded in 2010, is headquartered in Atlanta, and serves some of the largest restaurant franchises in the world. 

Revel offers specialty POS systems for pizza restaurants and cafes, and it also has a retail POS system. 

It has both standard and advanced POS features, including loyalty, gift cards, online ordering, a kitchen display system, and customer relationship management features. The program also uses an open API, so it’s easy to integrate with plenty of third party apps to add even more functionality to the program. Revel also has drive-through management features and kiosk ordering features, which may have special appeal for certain types of restaurant franchises. With Revel Enterprise®, users can manage multiple locations from a central cloud dashboard.

However, Revel has yet to add features for online reservations or smart locker for food with your POS system, and users are limited to using iPads for their point of sale stations.

Pros of Revel

  • High level of functionality within its simple user interface
  • The ease of menu updating and customization
  • Immediate support available

Cons of Revel

  • Enterprise deployment not available
  • Pricey compared to other solutions
  • Online table reservations not available
  • Smart food locker system not available
