Epson adds intelligence to receipt printing

Epson has added intelligence to create its TM-T88VI POS receipt printers that needs no drivers – it will print via any HTML5/XML enabled browser or mobile device as well as via Ethernet, USB, and serial ports.

Receipt printers are traditionally “dumb” requiring drivers and a direct USB or Ethernet Lan connection. Epson has added intelligence to its popular TM-T88V printer that enables browser-based printing from virtually any mobile device, with no drivers to install.

ePOS technology provides communication between the receipt printer and iOS and Android mobile devices anywhere in the store. For more information on Epson’s ePOS technology please read the Epson ePOS technology brief.

Epson Australia general manager Craig Heckenberg said, “The TM-T88VI gives businesses the ability to add Web and mobile POS services in stages, or run systems alone or in parallel if they choose.

"Many businesses, especially in the retail and restaurant sectors, are keen to leverage web and mobile POS solutions to improve efficiency, but they don’t want to commit to an entirely new system straight away. The TM-T88V-i can be implemented with existing infrastructure.”
