365 Retail Markets Certifies Epson Receipt Printers for its Self-Checkout Technology

Joint Solution Delivers Turnkey POS Platform that Allows Merchants to Improve the Customer Experience and Increase Sales

Epson America, Inc., a leading supplier of value-added Point of Sale (POS) solutions, today announced that 365 Retail Markets, a rapidly growing self-checkout technology company, has adopted the Epson TM-T70II and TM-U220 receipt printers for all the features that are important to their customers in the vending, foodservice and hospitality industries. Available today from 365 Retail Markets, the joint solution delivers a turnkey POS platform that helps deliver more efficient operations and lead to increased sales.

365 Retail Markets designs and builds self-checkout kiosk software, including cashier POS applications for foodservice and vending machine bezels which accept credit cards and account payment. The company needed dependable and durable printers, especially for the foodservice business where it is essential that a consumer’s food order gets reliably printed in the kitchen.

365 has bundled Epson’s mPOS-friendly TM-T70II POS printer with its MicroMarket (an unattended store, utilizing a self-checkout kiosk as the payment station) and Cafeteria POS solutions for kiosks. The printer’s small size and low height (only 4.49″ high) provides an ideal fit for kiosks and other small spaces. It features fast printing of up to 250mm/second, impressive reliability, dual interfaces and more. The company chose Epson’s TM-U220 impact printers to streamline kitchen operations. Since these impact printers do not use thermal media, the integrity of the receipts is maintained when exposed to a hot kitchen environment. In addition, these printers are compact, reliable, optimized for high-speed throughput and designed to work right out of the box with mobile POS applications. 365 also appreciates the versatility of the Epson line of printers allowing them to mix thermal and impact printers together in an environment with little to no code changes required.

“Epson has been a valued partner of 365 Retail Markets for several years,” said Ryan McWhirter, director of Product at 365 Retail Markets. “As we continue to deliver our industry-leading Connected Campussm, our platform that seamlessly connects MicroMarket, OCS (office coffee services), Vending and Dining products with one Global Market Account (GMA) for our customers, reliable printing from the MicroMarket to the Cafeteria is critical. Epson helps 365 maintain the reliability our customers expect and deserve.”

“365 Retail Market delivers one of the best-in-class self-checkout solutions,” said Tom Kettell, director, Commercial Channel – North America, Epson America, Inc. “We are proud to partner with such a forward-looking company. Through our joint solution, we are able to offer a turnkey POS solution, benefiting self-checkout as well as kitchen management, resulting in increased efficiency and customer satisfaction.”
