Revel Systems, a provider of iPad point-of-sale (POS) solutions has announced the release of an iPad-based restaurant POS system specially designed for food trucks, complete with Twitter integration. Integration with Twitter, which is embedded into the main console, enables users to send Tweets out if business is slow and to alert followers of special offers and changes of location.
The food truck solution is the latest in Revel Systems’ POS software line-up. The food-truck solution includes Revel Systems’ new Revel Router — a “made-for-iPad” device developed by Revel Systems in conjunction with Apple that allows customers to run their iPad POS systems without additional Internet connection hardware or wiring. Instead, Revel Router accesses an Internet connection directly via the user’s Verizon 3G- or 4G-enabled Apple iPad, eliminating the need for an Ethernet router or a MiFi 3G hotspot.
"Our customers were expressing frustration with installing other systems inside food trucks, so we set out to help them with a purpose-built solution," said Revel Systems CEO Lisa Falzone. "Being able to Tweet within the point-of-sale system on the iPad has generated a tremendously enthusiastic response from our food truck restaurant POS solution beta testers, who until now have had to put up with bulky connectivity hardware such as routers and cabling. It’s a simple way for them to attract more customers."
