Pizza Patron selects Revel Systems’ POS solution
San Francisco — Revel Systems, providers of enterprise iPad point-of-sale (POS) solutions, announced that pizza chain Pizza Patrón has selected Revel Systems as its POS solution for 100 plus store locations.
With the implementation of Revel Systems iPad POS across the Pizza Patrón franchise, stores can tap into cross-store metrics such as sales and inventory reports from one secure cloud based portal.
Pizza Patrón selected Revel Systems to manage inventory across storefronts as well as easily manage revenue and employees to ensure each neighborhood location is providing the best service and food to its customers. Additionally, Revel Systems POS solution provides a simple interface that allows managers to easily customize menus and functionalities as well as train new employees in little time.
Pizza Patrón executives also stated that they were attracted to Revel’s PCI compliance in the wake of malware attacks on POS Systems.
"Revel Systems is a simple, cost-effective solution that provides us real-time access to data for our entire chain of restaurants," said Antonio Swad, founder and CEO of Pizza Patrón. "We were looking for better analytical data ranging from product mix behavior to sales by day-part reports.

Second AMZN author passes 1 million milestone
Helen Bryan has become the second author in the Amazon Publishing stable of writers to surpass 1 million copies in combined print, audio and Kindle editions.
Bryan, author of historical novels "War Brides" (2012) and "The Sisterhood" (2013), follows Amazon Publishing author Oliver Pötzsch over the 1 million threshold.
Bryan, who was born in Virginia and lives in England, originally published War Brides in the United Kingdom and later self-published the title via Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP), Amazon’s self-publishing platform. War Brides caught the eye of Amazon Publishing editor Terry Goodman, who acquired the book for AmazonEncore, Amazon Publishing’s first imprint, and this edition of the book soon became a number one Kindle best seller.
“From the moment I laid eyes on War Brides, I knew that Helen’s voice should be heard by as wide an audience as possible. Her engrossing stories and unique characters were bound to resonate with a broad spectrum of readers,” said Terry Goodman, editorial lead, Lake Union Publishing. “We’re thrilled to have been by Helen’s side as one million readers around the world discovered—and loved—her books.”
War Brides is the story of five young women who fight a personal battle against the Axis powers during World War II. The story is inspired by the true wartime stories of Bryan’s family and of the brave women who joined Churchill’s Special Operations Executive. The Sisterhood, Bryan’s second novel, was released by Amazon Publishing’s Lake Union imprint in April 2013. Set in a Spanish convent during the Inquisition, The Sisterhood spans centuries and chronicles a young woman’s quest to make a connection with her mysterious past. The Sisterhood also became a #1 best-selling Kindle book soon after its release.
“Learning that your books have sold a million copies is the stuff of authors’ dreams, so this was just sensational news. Knowing how many wonderfully written books are out there, I’m thrilled and a little awed that so many readers have chosen mine,” said Bryan.
The Amazon Publishing family consists of 15 imprints: 47North, AmazonCrossing, AmazonEncore, Amazon Publishing, Grand Harbor Press, Jet City Comics, Kindle Worlds, Lake Union, Little A, Montlake Romance, Skyscape, StoryFront, Thomas & Mercer, Two Lions and Waterfall Press.
