Revel rolls out iPad POS for drive-thru


San Francisco - Revel Systems, has launched its iPad POS system for drive-thru. This expands Revel Systems' product offering for fast-food and enterprise-level clients, providing them with a fully integrated video chat experience with their tablet-based POS system.

The Video Drive-Through POS operates with three iPad devices, including Revel's QSR iPad POS terminal. This enables seamless drive-through functionality and allows customers to pull up to an embedded iPad in the drive- thru sign and order their meal by speaking to the POS operator via a video feed. Both the operator and customer can see each in the video chat window, and orders appear in the customer facing iPad display by the vehicle in split screen. When finished, the customer pulls up to the second window, where they can meet the operator in person, and pay. There will also be an option to pay and sign at the point of ordering.

The drive-through application works together with the Revel iPad POS, and is being offered as its own separate app. The drive-through POS requires a total of three iPads to operate — one for the client-facing video feed, one for the employee-facing feed, and another for the main iPad POS terminal. Additionally, a metal sensor detects when a car pulls up so that the system is not reliant on optical sensors alone.

"At Revel, we're always thinking of ways to make our product scalable to all industries," said Chris Ciabarra, CTO and co-founder of Revel Systems. "This drive-through offering will give fast food restaurants and enterprises the functionality they need to run their business that's also a sleek and engaging solution. Their customers will appreciate the ability to see who they're ordering from, as well as the simple beauty of the iPad, and employees will love the easy to use and intuitive interface. The iPad has offered us so much potential in terms of point of sale, and it's about time we harnessed some of that potential for enterprise."
