Revel Helps Improve Franchise Operations for Focus Brands in
Largest Known Rollout of Cloud-Based iPad Point of Sale Solution
ATLANTA and SAN FRANCISCO – May 15, 2019 – Revel Systems, a cloud-based point of sale (POS) and complete business management platform, today announced the successful implementation of the Revel Enterprise™ solution in more than 1,300 Focus Brands franchise locations across North America including Cinnabon, Auntie Anne’s and Carvel. As one of the largest deployments of a cloud-based iPad POS, Revel Enterprise has markedly improved efficiencies for Focus Brands stores.
Revel Enterprise is a business platform that empowers organizations, such as Focus Brands, to streamline the performance of their multi-location businesses and access tools to scale and grow. As a result of the implementation, Focus Brands can more effectively manage its franchises—both centrally and at the local franchisee level—from one platform. The solution is specifically designed for merchants with more complex needs, and provides an intuitive, secure and flexible technology platform.
“We are impressed by how positively Revel Enterprise has impacted our franchise locations. The ability to now easily manage multiple locations from anywhere, as well as the platform’s cost-effectiveness, are significant,” said Michael Verdesca, CIO, Focus Brands. “The data we’re pulling is now real-time and actionable, enabling us and our franchisees to make decisions with a definitive impact. The modern architecture and open platform also future-proofs our businesses.”
Key platform features allow Focus Brands to perform important tasks, such as setting up groups of restaurants, centrally controlling menus, generating brand-level reports in real-time, analyzing and managing ingredient inventory, and managing employee time and attendance. Revel Enterprise also enables each franchise to operate more efficiently as an independent business, while still allowing corporate oversight.
“The technological architecture and professional services that underpin the Revel Enterprise platform are well matched to address the rapidly evolving digital commerce initiatives of a major foodservice operator like Focus Brands,” said Greg Dukat, CEO, Revel Systems. “We are proud to work on such a massive scale with Focus and to provide a complete enterprise solution that includes an open ecosystem, key partners, and a broad set of critical features.”
In partnership with the Focus Brands project team, Revel provided virtual and onsite professional services teams to manage the Revel Enterprise implementation and ensure a successful roll out over a six-month period.
Critical and value-add partner integrations were also essential to the Focus Brands deployment and easily enabled through Revel’s open API architecture. These include integrations with FreedomPay, which allows seamless, secure POS and payments processes, and Punchh gift card and loyalty programs.
