High Wycombe, UK, 17 March 2016
Star Micronics is pleased to announce that ePaisa, a nationwide point of sale solution provider digitizing local businesses across India, has incorporated Star’s mPOP™, a unique combined Bluetooth printer and cash drawer mobile point of purchase solution, into its software to provide the ideal affordable mobile POS solution for small and medium businesses.
Combining a Bluetooth thermal printer with a cash drawer, mPOP offers the ultimate space saving mobile POS system. Outstanding connectivity and compact design alongside intuitive functionality and simple integration define Star’s unique solution. Simple and stylish, the lightweight and portable solution is just 10cm high and 30cm wide with a sleek design that will complement any counter top. Alternatively, mPOP with front feed receipting can easily be secured under the counter for enhanced space-saving. With intuitive top loading and easy front feed as well as a partial cut guillotine, the reliable thermal printer automatically cuts the 58mm wide receipt.
ePaisa™ is a free point of sale and cloud-based app that transforms a smart phone or tablet into a complete business management solution. The smart phone or tablet is used at the point of sale to ring up sales, manage inventory and build customer loyalty while the cloud-based back-office tools provide access to the sales report and analytics thus enabling smarter business decisions to be made.
“India's retail is changing fast. Today's retailer expects both form and function.” Siddharth Arora, CEO & Co-Founder at ePaisa, commented: “ePaisa's integrated mobile point of sale solution brings these 'big box retailers' tools to SMEs. Our integration with Star Micronics takes our offer a step ahead by integrating the cash register, barcode reader and printer into one neat device. No more clunky hardware or cables! The simplicity and usage of this integration is especially appealing to service outlets and allows ePaisa retailers the opportunity to integrate and get started in minutes.”
mPOP has received Apple Inc.’s MFi (Made for iPhone, iPad, iPod) certification and works with all major operating systems including Apple iOS, Android and Windows to provide users with a versatile solution.
Annette Tarlton, Marketing Director, Star Micronics EMEA, adds: “Providing a simple yet powerful multilingual point of sale solution for smaller businesses, we are pleased that ePaisa has joined the growing number of software houses to integrate mPOP. Star’s unique mobile point of purchase solution combined with ePaisa software offers a cost-effective mobile POS system that successfully combines feature-rich business management tools with stylish hardware.”
