Star revolutionises POS terminal Device Choice with DIRECT iPad Receipt Printing
via standard iPad /iPhone / iPod USB - lightning cable
Today retailers and restaurateurs have the choice of the traditional POS terminal or new and
innovative tablet POS providing the flexibility and mobility increasingly required within retail and hospitality
environments. However, concern for communication and connectivity issues has resulted in retailers being
reticent to take advantage of the cost-savings of mobile tablet POS.
Managing a large estate of multiple tablets and paired Bluetooth devices means that it can be operationally
difficult to maintain the right connection between the right peripherals and devices. The TSP143IIIU changes
all this. As well as working with a traditional POS terminal, this printer can also connect directly to an iPad or
iPhone using the Apple supplied lightning cable for reliable USB communication. As a result, the usual
Bluetooth or WiFi / wired LAN set-up issues around pairing, network infrastructure, connectivity etc. are
eliminated. No other stand-alone POS printer can achieve this today!
