Star Receipt Printer Helps Improve Customer Service at the Sunglass Shop

Posted June 16, 2011

The Sunglass Shop bills itself as a customer-driven establishment where shoppers come first. The family-owned “Mom and Pop” store offers 2,500 pairs of sunglasses in a wide range of brands, styles and prices, as well as sunglass-related items.

After installing a Star TSP700 thermal receipt printer, store personnel can quickly and easily generate receipts that show where, when and at what price shoppers bought their sunglasses and/or accessories. Customers who need subsequent assistance with their purchases or have general questions need only refer to their receipt and bring it to the store for assistance; there is, states Keel, no chance that they are dealing with a merchant that isn’t on the up-and-up. Two-color receipt printing occurs at a high speed of 7.09 inches per second, while such features as “Drop in & Print” paper loading and an easy-to-change, cartridge-type interface minimizes printing delays. A logo storage utility allows logos to be added to receipts without difficulty.

Not long ago, The Sunglass Shop upgraded its point of sale system and needed to install printer drivers in its TSP700 printer so that the two devices would interface with each other. Keel tried to do the job alone, but was unsuccessful. A quick telephone call to Star Micronics’ technical support department solved the problem. Tech support personnel walked Keel through the process, and everything was up and running within minutes.

“Again, we can print receipts on demand with no trouble,” Keel concludes. “That leads to better customer service”—just what The Sunglass Shop on Ocracoke is all about.

Star Micronics Introduces TSP143GT Gray Receipt Printer

Posted November 3, 2010

Star Micronics is answering the call of its customers with the introduction of the TSP143GT Gray. The new receipt printer option enables customers to leverage the high-speed GT version of the successful TSP100 series in Star’s standard Gray color, complementing the current GT color options of Ice White and Piano Black.

“Star Micronics introduced the TSP143GT Gray in direct response to feedback we received from our channel partners,” said Christophe Naasz, Director of Marketing for Star Micronics America. “Our reseller and software developer partners were asking for a faster version of our popular TSP100 series printer and to provide the current aesthetically pleasing and consistent POS system look. The addition of the GT Gray color offers more flexibility by enabling them to offer a receipt printer that matches the popular charcoal gray color used in many modern POS system setups.”

The TSP143GT Gray is fully compatible with the existing models and offers the same TSP100 GT benefits, including a high-speed print rate of 45 receipts per minute and the futurePRNT receipt design software that originally helped to define the GT series. The printer also features a standard USB interface, an internal power supply, drivers and software and a user-friendly “plug and play” installation.

The TSP143GT Gray comes with a 3-year full warranty with the first year featuring a complimentary Swap-A-Star. The TSP143GT is eligible for Star’s Extend-A-Star and Swap-A-Star enhanced service programs in the United States and Canada.
