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.
