Star’s WebPRNT Technology Changes the Game for Cloud POS

Posted January 30, 2014

ddfTo run a cloud POS, only an Internet connection and a browser are required to access the solution. However, in a typical retail environment, printing receipts is a must. Pairing a POS terminal with a receipt printerin a Cloud environment is a challenge. With traditional printers, the communication between the Cloud Application and the printer is achieved through the POS Terminal – that is – by installing a driver on the POS Terminal to manage the printer.

The way the traditional printers communicate with the POS and the Cloud solution means that the browser and the printer driver need to be set up together. And very often when the browser is updated, the drivers also need to be re-installed because of other conflicting updates.  When this happens, for each POS, the whole printer set up needs to be updated. Not only is this a costly and time-consuming process but it also means staff involvement is needed in each store.

Posted January 28, 2014

After more than a decade of stability using mobile computer operating systems based on successive versions of Microsoft Windows Mobile and its predecessors, the current situation is far more dynamic. Major players in the consumer smartphone market are migrating users to rich interfaces focused on screen interaction rather than keypads.

The tight integration of sensors, wireless connectivity, and application services frameworks are driving a new paradigm, allowing developers to easily integrate key functionality into their apps via standard system APIs. A large ecosystem has emerged to provide apps, resources, and tools to facilitate development.

But what does this mean for the enterprise? How does a changing user base drive new application interfaces? Which ecosystem should IT embrace for mobile devices? These are questions with no singular answer, yet multiple alternatives are offered for consideration.
