Elo teams with Star Micronics to bolster POS
Star Micronics, a provider of point of sale and proof of transaction technology, has partnered with Elo, a supplier of touchscreen solutions, to provide a new hardware bundle for point of sale, according to a press release. This solution combines the Elo I-Series for Android and Windows tablets with a flip stand that houses a Star Micronics TSP100III, TSP650II or TSP700II thermal printer. This bundle provides a solution for hospitality, enterprise stadiums and other environments where space saving and durability are essential. The flip stand is designed to transform a point of sale unit into a self-service kiosk solution or a customer-facing display, and is suited for small counter spaces with integrated cable management.
"Elo and Star recognize that demand is growing for POS solutions with mobile architecture combined with the configurability of traditional POS systems," Sonal Apte, Elo senior director of product management, said in the press release. "With this new mPOS platform, customers can instantly transform a traditional POS station into a self-service countertop kiosk that integrates a best-in-class Star printer, an EMV payment device and a barcode scanner into one seamless design."
The bundle allows users to print receipts using their choice of WLAN, LAN, Bluetooth and USB connectivity with Star's TSP100III or TSP650II thermal receipt printers. In addition, Star's TSP700II offers a solution for receipt and label printing with the I-Series tablet and stand. With high-speed printing, "drop-in and print" paper loading and a receipt de-curl mechanism that allows receipts to print smooth and flat, Star Micronics' printers can be used in fast-paced environments.
