A job well done brings many rewards, and if you’re in the business of developing and installing POS software, rewards can come in the form of customer referrals. Such was the case when Revel Systems got an inquiry to replace the cash registers at a San Francisco craft beer store with an iPad-based POS solution and APG cash drawers.
Open since 2006, City Beer models itself after wine bars, but for beer lovers. The business stocks more than 300 labels of beer for retail and in-store bar sales, but had trouble keeping track of the stock. “Inventory management was a major concern for City Beer,” says Patrick Donnelly, director of marketing at Revel Systems. “They needed a way to track which ones were selling and which weren’t, but they were using old-school cash registers and therefore had no inventory control or monitoring capabilities.”
On a referral from a microbrewery in the city’s Castro District, City Beer owner Craig Wathen contacted Revel Systems. A big fan of Apple products, Wathen wanted an iPad POS solution, but it had to be able to handle the 15-employee business.
