Star’s New AllReceipts Cloud-based Digital Receipt Solution

Posted April 28, 2015

PrintStar has announced the launch of its new free of charge digital receipting service,  AllReceipts, offering the retailer a low cost and fast route to providing the customer with a digital copy of a printed receipt as well as access to analytics, an in-store customer survey and device management tools.

With zero development required, AllReceipts is enabled with the Star printer driver (TSP100 Series initially with more printers to follow) and works independently of a retailer’s POS software. Being stored and organised in the AllReceipts App on the customer’s mobile device, it eliminates the issues typically associated with email receipting including spam, taking a high quality photo of the receipt and privacy issues. The immediate advantage perceived by the customer is the choice to remain anonymous and yet still receive a digital copy of the receipt.

Star Receipt Printers an Great Match for LOCFOOD Point of Sale Software

Posted May 6, 2014

LOCFOOD is a modern point of sale (POS) software designed to connect consumers and merchants. Combining the functionality of POS and online ordering, the sleek, multi-purpose solution allows establishments in the hospitality industry to improve order accuracy, increase order turnover and streamline food preparation.

Using LOCFOOD’s solution – which has been developed for web, iOS and Android – customers can browse menus and restaurant information, place their order electronically and be notified when it is ready for pick-up.

The problem

When LOCFOOD began working with restaurant owners, they explained that because their tabled-based POS solution lacked a printer, it would be greener, eliminate paper waste and reduce printing costs. However, merchants explained that it is actually more practical for them to use a POS printer. They expressed their need to print order tickets to the kitchen and receipts to present to the customer. Restaurant owners explained that the kitchen area is too harsh an environment for tablets, as the device can easily come into contact with water, food and high temperatures.

Posted April 10, 2014

2014-04-10_0906No detail goes unnoticed when it comes to image and brand. Many stores go to great pains to create a specific aesthetic with their layout or design to convey the mood of the store.

To help retailers make a lasting impression, Star is excited to announce the release of its new white color option on select printers. With clean lines and smooth white tone, Star’s white printers emulate the look of tablets and other mobile devices commonly used by retailers operating in a mobile point of sale environment.

Sound Choices Recording Services Adds Star Printer and WiFi Power Pack to Speed Checkout and Enhance Operations

Posted July 1, 2013

Sound Choices Recording Services of Mobile offers premier location recording services for concerts, festivals, musicals, recitals, cd recordings and more. Since 1997, Sound Choices has been passionate about audio and video recording at local, regional and state levels. Along with location sound recording, the company offers a full range of services to musicians, choirs and groups looking to record their music to produce their own CDs. Sound Choices specializes in digital editing, mixing, audio mastering, cd design and artwork and cd production.

The Alabama-based recording company works primarily on location, where they sell both DVDs and CDs, depending on the venue. The mobile studio was using the e-mail feature of Square Register to generate receipts, but it was taking too long to complete each transaction and the long lines were driving customers away.

The studio’s management decided to purchase a receipt printer that would allow them to generate a printed receipt at the time of checkout as opposed to only offering e-receipts. But the company’s onsite network is completely wireless, and the mobile studio lacked the infrastructure to connect to WiFi, which would allow them to use a printer with their mobile POS solution.
