If you are still wondering just how customizable Revel POS is, consider this. Included is the Revel Systems POS API, in which you access the back-end side of Revel POS to add or remove features and customize your iPad as much as you’d like, even with third party applications. Ideally, Revel would like to become the perfect POS system for every type of business in every type of scenario. I’d say they’re doing pretty well.



When Revel designed the iPad POS, they didn’t forget about ease of use in the process of making it a powerfully customizable and robust system. After reading about how much can be done with this POS, it’s encouraging to hear that setup and use is quick and easy. Revel’s hardware comes preconfigured to save you from the time and frustration that typically come along with the setup process. Hardware integration is also a breeze, as the Revel POS system communicates seamlessly with card swipes, scanners, scales, printers, and Bluetooth keyboards.



All payments are secured with information encryption, ensuring that data will not be stolen. In fact, card information is encrypted immediately upon being swiped on the Revel iPad POS. Revel card readers come fully encrypted with AES 256 payment encryption keys.

Beyond payment security, payment ease is also a plus. Customers can choose to pay with a card swipe, online, with a mobile device, with PayPal integration, with a gift card, or even with Bitcoin if they wish.



In today’s highly automated and online marketplace, security has never been more important.This especially rings true with Revel’s superb security track record. Revel’s POS system is fully compliant with PCI DSS standards to ensure the security of all credit card information. Revel always stays up to date on PCI standards and ensures its POS systems follow the latest requirements. As a result of putting security first, Revel’s POS systems feature the highest level of credit card security on the POS market. Good security practices make for good results, and Revel Systems has never had any trouble with credit card fraud or hacking to date.

DTT security integration gives you the ability to view surveillance footage along side what is being performed on you iPad POS. Monitoring transactions in this way cuts down on theft and loss, making this feature incredibly beneficial to certain industries. And of course, user access options make all important private data and options accessible to only the business owner and anyone the owner specifically gives permission to.

Revel takes all possible measures to ensure the safety of your data, including hosting in a PCI compliant data center. Each single location business operates on a database of its own through Revel’s POS systems, meaning your data is kept separate from all other client’s data. Revel also ensures several layers of redundancy, meaning that your data will never be lost in the case of an unpredictable event.



The Revel POS system is undeniably impressive. Who would have thought that a business could be run from an iPad? Combine the powerful capabilities of a  robust POS system and the simplicity and user friendly design of an iPad, and you have the Revel iPad POS. This POS is viable in nearly every business scenario, as it is incredibly diverse in its abilities and has very few limitations. The Revel POS is a great option for start-ups and well-established businesses alike.
