Why ex-Revel retailers are falling in love with Lightspeed

Our integrated eCom actually does it all

Don't settle for Revel's third-party eCom. With ours built in-house, run your entire store from one centralized interface, the way it should be.

Track service and work orders

With Revel, you can't track work orders, so you can't easily offer services like tailoring or tune-ups. With Lightspeed, you can.

We give you full control of your inventory

Unlike Revel, Lightspeed offers a complete inventory system. Sell serialized items, create bundles and organize products with many variations.

Process special orders / layaways for free

Revel simply doesn't support this. Lightspeed lets you order products that aren't in stock and put them on hold for customers, all for free.

We help you get to know your omnichannel customers

Revel only provides half the equation. Lightspeed tracks in-store and online customer activity and information from a centralized interface.

Free onboarding and 24/7 support

We don't believe anyone should pay for support. Get free personalized training and 24/7 phone, email and chat support included with any purchase.

Get going with Lightspeed faster.

Migrating from Revel to Lightspeed Retail? No problem. Transfer your data using Doosync by Enkidoo so you can pick your business up where you left off. No compromising your data—just business continuity with your brand new Lightspeed POS system.

“What I like about Lightspeed is that it offers the simplicity an average cashier would like to see. And in the backend you have enterprise depth to the data.”
