SAN FRANCISCO, CA/SCOTTSDALE, AZ (January 21, 2015) — Revel Systems, the world’s leading iPad Point of Sale platform, today announced it has expanded operations into Arizona through a new Scottsdale office. The company will create 160 new jobs during the next three years to drive its global sales growth. Revel’s Vice President of Sales, Bobby Marhamat will devote resources to create jobs and extend the local footprint in the Greater Phoenix market. Marhamat has been with Revel Systems iPad POS since June of 2014 and has successfully grown sales teams and business initiatives at companies such as Verizon Wireless and Sprint.
“Revel is building a world-class sales team here in Scottsdale, and we cannot wait to get started,” said Marhamat. “Thousands of food service and retail franchise operators and small-to-medium business owners worldwide depend on Revel’s POS platform to help grow their business. We expect 2015 will bring further interest and expansion in our offering and are excited to leverage Arizona’s vibrant talent pool to extend that momentum.”
“We’re excited to welcome Revel Systems to Arizona,” said Governor Doug Ducey. “Their decision to expand in Scottsdale is a strong testament to the pro-business climate, booming corporate base and highly-skilled workforce that have made the East Valley one of the most dynamic and fastest-growing areas in the country. I am committed to ensuring that great companies like Revel continue to look to Arizona as the premiere place to bring their business.”
“We thank Revel Systems for selecting Arizona to expand, and are excited to see its new Scottsdale operation, and innovative POS technology solutions for business, advance the growth of other entrepreneurs across globe,” said Sandra Watson, President and CEO, Arizona Commerce Authority. “Our state’s strategic Southwest location, proximity to key regional growth markets, and competitive cost of doing business continue to provide an attractive platform for today’s leading companies to thrive and achieve their corporate success.”
This Arizona expansion news follows Revel’s announcement in November 2014 where it secured $100 million in Series C funding to strengthen support and operations in order to meet rapidly growing demand and sales for its iPad POS solution. Additionally, last month Revel opened a UK sales and operations center in Belfast, Northern Ireland, and an IT division in Lithuania.
The Revel iPad POS platform includes complete front-end order entry, POS system and payment processing, back-end personnel scheduling, time clock and payroll, inventory management, comprehensive product/menu management and advanced reporting to successfully measure and optimize business performance.
“We are thrilled to continue Revel’s significant growth with our first office in Arizona,” said Lisa Falzone, CEO and co-founder of Revel. “Our ultimate goal is to empower business owners to start and grow their own businesses, making their lives easier along the way. As we continue to expand Revel’s global reach, scaling a talented team of salespeople will be critical to Revel’s continued success.”
