Epson Launches New OmniLink POS Receipt Printer Designed to Bring Reliability, Efficiency and Convenience for Safe Shopping, Dining, Online Ordering, and Pickup
With the continued emphasis on social distancing, buying online for in-store or roadside pickup is likely to be the trend for the foreseeable future. This migration to online business requires reliable and flexible POS solutions so customers can check out and check out their items quickly. With some of the most advanced features available today, the new Epson OmniLink TM-m50 thermal POS printer has been designed to meet these needs and is an ideal solution for client businesses of all sizes, from small specialty stores to delis, bars and and fine dining for hotels, retail and restaurant chains and large department stores.
“True to our strong history of innovation and our commitment to the latest market trends and requirements, we are continuously developing our POS product solutions,” he said Aileen Maldonado, Product Manager, Business Systems, Epson America Inc. “Customers want efficiency and want to order online. Therefore, retailers need to adapt by using the best solutions to meet these needs. The new OmniLink TM-m50 extends the capabilities of the existing mPOS Product line that maintains the compact, sleek, modern industrial design while increasing print speed, reliability, and connectivity for traditional PC POS systems, critical for today’s merchants who need their receipt printer to handle the stringent requirements of high volume transactions to meet. ”
The OmniLink TM-m50 combines the slim and compact design of Epson’s mPOS line of receipt printers with the intelligent features of the OmniLink receipt printers, offering retailers the best of both worlds. The 3-inch printer has a modular chassis that allows easy change from a top-load to a front-load configuration and solves issues such as space constraints, environmental locks, and peripheral specifications.
An extensive range of functions helps retailers to serve their customers in the best possible way, regardless of whether they shop online, collect in-store, collect at the roadside or order for home delivery. The OmniLink TM-m50 offers great flexibility and can be dynamically shared by tablets, smartphones and PC-POS or cloud POS systems. The printer has connectivity options with multiple interfaces to help future-proof growing businesses. It has built-in Ethernet and USB, serial, Bluetooth® and wireless options. Important functions such as online ordering and remote printing are supported by Epson’s Server Direct Print technology. Merchants also benefit from access to the latest cloud applications through OmniLink Merchant Services, giving them more options to support their business needs.
This printer also enables transactions anywhere in the store or restaurant with iBeacon and NFC connectivity. With Epson beacon support1, mobile devices can identify the closest printer. This makes it ideal for POS environments where multiple users send data to a central printer to create receipts, and NFC2 support makes it easy to pair tablets, smartphones and other mobile devices. With a print head service life of 200 km3 and a service life of the automatic cutter of 2.2 million cuts, 3 customers benefit from a remarkable printer security. Ideal for busy retail and hotel environments, the printers can quickly print receipts at speeds of up to 350mm / s. In addition, the innovative paper-saving technology enables environmentally conscious retailers to reduce paper consumption by up to 49 percent
The new OmniLink TM-m50 has new features that allow smart devices including tablets and smartphones to be charged, data communication between the printer and a tablet over a single cable5 (cable not included), and network connection of the printer for the tablet selection enables USB network tethering, 6 for the retailer’s need for reliable wired networks. These features are ideal for wholesalers who want to prevent their POS system from going offline, which can lead to poor customer experiences and lost sales.
The OmniLink TM-m50 POS thermal receipt printer will be available from the end of the year from Epson authorized sales partners January 2021. Please visit www.epson.com/m50 for more information.
