Star Micronics and Elo Partner to Provide a Modernized All-In-One POS Solution
Star Micronics combines thermal receipt printers with the Elo I-Series for a compact and reliable POS solution
Somerset, NJ – May 08, 2017 – Star Micronics, leading provider of point of sale and proof of transaction technology has announced their partnership with Elo, a global supplier of touchscreen solutions, to provide a new hardware bundle for point of sale. 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 perfect solution for hospitality, enterprise stadiums, and other environments where space saving and durability are essential. The flip stand is designed to seamlessly transform your point of sale into a self-service kiosk solution or a customer-facing display, and is ideal 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,” said Sonal Apte, Senior Director of Product Management at Elo. “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 are easy to use in fast-paced environments.
“Star Micronics is very excited about this new partnership and can expect this bundle to gain a lot of popularity in the hospitality and retail markets,” says Christophe Naasz, Business Development Director of Star Micronics. “There has been a major increase in the use of tablets in these markets over the past few years. Star Micronics and Elo have worked together to create a POS bundle that still has a sleek and compact look, but provides a durable solution for high-volume point of sale environments.”
