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.
