3-in-1 POS device cuts costs

With reduced power and paper consumption

1 March 2011 – Epson, Europe’s number one POS printer manufacturer , further develops its POS range with the launch of the TM-H6000IV, which combines greyscale receipt printing, slip printing and cheque processing in one compact device with a low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). Building on the success of the TM-H6000III, the TM-H6000IV features improved power efficiency and reduced paper usage to help retailers lower their overheads. It’s designed to keep administrators satisfied too, with a new remote management feature, easy installation and two interfaces onboard.

Retailers can shrink their paper usage by up to 31 percent with the TM-H6000IV’s paper save feature. Instead of squeezing logos and text, which causes distortion and can compromise legibility, the paper save feature automatically reduces blank spaces and barcode height. It also prints the top of the next receipt before cutting the current one to decrease the top margin.

Further reducing TCO, the TM-H6000IV lowers utility overheads with its ENERGY STAR-qualified power efficiency .

David Ormerod, market development manager for POS printers, Epson UK, says: “Managing a fleet of TM-H6000IV printers over a network couldn’t be easier with our new remote management feature. Administrators can monitor every printer’s status and usage from a single location, and carry out settings changes remotely. This saves time and hassle.”

Integration is just as simple, thanks to the TM-H6000IV’s wide interface compatibility. With USB included as standard in addition to the changeable second interface, retailers have the freedom to switch to a USB environment at any time.

Epson is the only POS printer manufacturer to offer true greyscale receipt printing, and can help retailers make a good impression on customers with high-quality receipts. The TM-H6000IV delivers eye-catching greyscale logos and graphics, ideal for reinforcing branding or communicating special offers more effectively.

Every transaction is fast and fuss-free with the TM-H6000IV’s improved print speeds of up to 300mm/sec for receipts and 5.7 lines per second for slips. To ensure customers are not frustrated by cheque processing failures, the optional MICR reader has an accuracy rate of over 99 percent.

Straightforward to use, even for inexperienced operators, the TM-H6000IV has a large paper slot to allow trouble-free insertion of slips and cheques.

The TM-H6000IV has a small footprint to fit easily into most environments, including counters with limited space.

The TM-H6000IV is available to purchase from 1 April 2011..
