Epson expands its market-leading POS printer range

02 January 2017 – Epson, Europe’s leading POS printer manufacturer1, announces the addition of the TM-T88VI iHub to its POS printer range. This state-of-the-art new receipt printer offers the same range of great new features as the recently-launched TM-T88VI, but with added connectivity options to allow the installation and charging of peripherals. The TM-T88VI iHub is designed to work with both traditional PC-based POS systems and increasingly popular web and mobile setups. This makes it ideal for shop, bar and restaurant owners who want to develop new ways of interacting with customers, and for those who want to run a combined or traditional setup.

David Gross, product manager at Epson Europe, says, “The TM-T88VI iHub offers all the outstanding features of the TM-T88VI, plus plenty of ways to connect and charge devices. With web, tablet and PC coexistence as well, there’s little else on the market that can offer retailers, restaurants and bars quite as many options to run their POS the way they want to.”

As well as versatility, the TM-T88VI iHub offers outstanding performance, with print speeds of up to 350mm/s, and Epson’s proven reliability. A backwards paper-feeding function helps save paper without affecting performance, reducing running costs and paper waste.

Server Direct Print functionality allows the TM-T88VI iHub to print direct from a web server.  

It also supports beacons, to help mobile devices identify the nearest printer, making it ideal for POS environments with multiple printer installations, while NFC support makes it easy to pair tablets, smartphones and other mobile devices.

The TM-T88VI iHub has exactly the same footprint as the TM-T88V iHub, allowing you to upgrade to a brand new system without having to rearrange your counter space, and is available in both black and white to suit any shop, bar or restaurant decor.

The TM-T88VI is available from 1 February 2017, priced at €442.
