Onvi teams up with Star Printers
Onvi has partnered with Star Micronics EMEA to enable remote printing directly and securely from a business’ webserver to connected printers in a pub, bar or restaurant without complicated network configurations.
Enabling remote printing can be a massive benefit for order and receipt printing. To make this possible, Onvi has teamed with Star for its CloudPRNT™ technology, which is available on the Star mC-Print™ series and Star TSP654II HI X and other printer models.
The mC-Print3 with CloudPRNT is a cost-effective printer providing a range of connectivity options for future-proof solutions that cater for orders from any channel, whether in-store POS or tablets, online or kiosk. The versatile mC-Print series provides intelligent printing for cloud applications and unparalleled flexibility for remote receipt and order printing.
Featuring a 300mm/second print speed alongside high quality 203 dpi print output, the TSP654II HI X with Star CloudPRNT offers a high-performance compact solution that can be used in either vertical or horizontal mode. With a built-in interface for Cloud functionality, the printer provides the ideal solution for businesses keen to integrate a flexible ordering system.
David Pearce, Technical Director, Star Micronics EMEA, explains: “We are seeing strong demand for Cloud technologies that can pull orders directly from an online ordering system at defined intervals and print these remotely in a shop or a kitchen without needing an additional tablet or device to key in the order. Auto-printing simplifies operations, and staff do not have to worry about anything other than receiving the orders.
Furthermore, it is extremely straightforward to set up.”
Gavin Peters, Chief Strategy & Marketing Officer at Onvi, says: “Quite simply when effective and reliable Order & Pay solutions are in place, customers appreciate the ease of use. They don’t have to wait for someone to take their orders, and they can instantly get another round in with the touch of one button. This leads to an uplift of more than 30% compared to traditional ordering; several customers see their sales double.
“While some solutions have been set up purely to allow contactless ordering out of necessity, the best technology offers much more, and now operators and customers are seeing those benefits, this will now continue and evolve. Mobile Order & Pay will sit at the heart of the next generation of sales platforms – enabling operators to service customers whenever and wherever they choose, use data to better target and connect with them, optimise their menus, and ultimately increase sales and reduce costs.”
