How We Determined Quality of User Review Websites
- Merchant Maverick has a very detailed staff review along with hundreds of recent and informative user reviews to back it up.
- Software Advice has the most recent and most detailed reviews from companies in varying industries. The reviews are also broken down into categories such as ease-of-use, customer support, and value for money.
- Software Insider has a good breakdown of all review results. However, there are issues in displaying all of the earlier reviews. You will need to have an account with them to do so.
Revel POS Features & Pricing
On estimate, depending on the business and its needs, a client could spend between $1,500 to upwards of $2,000 for initial fees and set-up alone, then $80 to $200 worth of monthly fees. This will need to be confirmed with a Revel representative. From what we know, business owners need to purchase their hardware separately from the actual software.
As with their pricing, Revel also doesn’t have a single set of features. Their POS system is segregated into Quick Service, Restaurant & Bar, and Retail. Delivery Management is in one, Ingredient Inventory is in the other, and Ecommerce and Loyalty Programs are in the last, among other independent features. They also offer employee management, customer management, and Quickbooks integration. (Note: Quickbooks POS is also powered by Revel Systems.)
