High Wycombe, UK, 7 March 2017 - International POS printer manufacturer Star Micronics announces that intelligentpos, the UK’s leading cloud based point of sale solution for shops, bars and restaurants and Gold member of Star’s VIP Club for software developers, is set to join Star on Stand 6 / E41 at EuroShop 2017 (5 - 9 March 2017, Messe Düsseldorf, Germany).
This will be the first time intelligentpos has attended EuroShop, following its merger with iZettle in October 2016 and subsequent launch in Germany.

Together iZettle and intelligentpos provide an integrated payment and point of sale solution that allows small businesses to take card payments and use hundreds of different features on the point of sale app to help them manage and grow their businesses. On the Star stand, intelligentpos will be displaying and demonstrating their product for a complete epos, printer and cash drawer solution.
Graeme Horsfall, general manager of intelligentpos, commented: “Being at EuroShop is hugely exciting for intelligentpos. Following our launch into Europe and our continued relationship with Star, we’re looking to keep on innovating and growing to continue to deliver EPOS solutions to SMEs and start-up companies across Europe.”
