Star Micronics, leading provider of point of sale and proof of transaction technology has introduced cloudPRNT, an innovative technology enabling users to print to Star printers directly through a cloud service.
The first product to be released, the TSP650IIcloudPRNT thermal printer retrieves and prints orders from any online ordering service integrating Star's communication protocol. cloudPRNT will work with the online ordering service to store and create print jobs, and communicate status with the printer. Cloud ordering services will post orders using a JSON format while the Star cloudPRNT printer will pull these orders on a defined interval.
Star's cloudPRNT technology provides benefits to both restaurant and retail stores alike by eliminating the need for an extra tablet to send an online order to the printer. Instead, the ordering service will be able to communicate directly to the printer. In addition, this product allows payment providers to deploy a very simple payment solution with printed receipts at any mobile point of sale location.
By offering online purchasing options, retail stores and restaurants will be able to grow their business to expand to a larger market. Using cloudPRNT, online ordering systems have a new and easier solution to offer businesses, allowing them to seamlessly integrate online purchasing into their stores.
