Fresh off the largest-ever deployment of an iPad point-of-sale system, Revel Systems announced Tuesday that it has secured more than $90 million in Series C funding.
Led by Welsh, Carson, Anderson & Stowe, the funding round includes $65 million in direct investment and a $25 million equity line.
In September, Revel was chosen as the point-of-sale system for Smoothie King's 700 retail locations around the globe.
Revel Systems CEO and co-founder Lisa Falzone told CNBC the funding would be used to make the company "the standard in the industry" with investments in its infrastructure and R&D.
The addressable market for its iPad-based point-of-sale system could total $60 billion, she added.
"That's also another reason why a lot of these big chains are looking for a new solution," Falzone said.
Chief Technology Officer and co-founder Chris Ciabarra said Revel does not hold customers' information in its database. Instead, it directly transmits encrypted credit card data from the iPad app.
"The only key to unencrypt it is with the processor," he said.
Ciabarra also said that Revel's integration with the new Apple Pay "was pretty seamless."
"It's going to be the leader in mobile payments going forward," he added.
