Griffin Technology chooses Revel Systems Ipad POS solution for U.S.-based stores

BY Marianne Wilson

San Francisco — Revel Systems, a provider of iPad point-of-sale solutions, announced that its cloud-based POS system has been chosen by Griffin Technology and is now live in its five United States-based MicroStores.

Revel Systems’ POS solution connects the retail locations through its cloud-based system so that data can be easily pulled in real-time, a major benefit over other server-based solutions.

"Griffin prides itself on being a technology innovator, so we had very high expectations for every aspect of our new MicroStores," said Jeff Herrick, Information Systems Manager at Griffin Technology. "After reviewing our vendor options, we found Revel Systems’ iPad point-of-sale systems to be the most customizable solution, especially with the convenient integration to our existing back-end system. We’ve truly enjoyed the POS installation with Revel and are quite satisfied with the end result at our MicroStores."

The Griffin MicroStores, which opened in San Jose, Seattle, San Francisco, Nashville and Annapolis, are Griffin’s first U.S.-based stores and currently have the Revel POS systems live with plans to expand to additional Griffin stores in 2013.
