Revel vs TouchBistro in our news:

2022. TouchBistro bakes CAD$150M into restaurant management tech recipe



TouchBistro, an iPad-based restaurant management platform, has secured CAD$150 million. TouchBistro integrates both marketing and customer relationship management capabilities in its suite of tools. TouchBistro has deployed more than 64,000 of its terminals that provide automated online ordering, menu and delivery management, contactless payments, marketing and customer engagement tools. The company also acquired TableUp in 2020, a move which became the foundation for its guest engagement, loyalty and marketing tools. The company also offered online ordering at no cost to its customers while they couldn’t offer in-person dining.


2015. iPad POS platform Revel gets $13.5 million funding



iPad point-of-sale company Revel Systems raises $13.5M to expand in Asia and Europe. Revel will continue differentiating from other tablet POS systems by including a wide array of features in its software suite so it can handle deliveries and shipping in addition to payment processing. This allows Revel to compete with enterprise software like Micros System, which was acquired by Oracle for about $5.3 billion last year. Revel also recently added Ethernet connections for clients who want to use iPads to handle transactions but can’t rely on wireless connections, such as sports stadiums and government agencies.


2015. Revel adds Ethernet connection to its iPad POS system



Revel makes one of the leading iPad point-of-sales systems and was among the first to offer Apple Pay. Despite its focus on mobile payments, however, the startup is also trying to attract companies that are wary of handling financial transactions solely through wi-fi. To get more enterprises on board, Revel is launching wired ethernet connections, a move that it hopes will convince large retail businesses to replace their cash registers with iPads. Revel claims they are the first iPad POS provider to offer failover connections between wi-fi and cabled Ethernet, so if one falters, the other will take over. Called Revel Ethernet Connect, the hardware is now on sale for $250 and will be included with Revel’s iPad POS system after June 15.
