Star Micronics Introduces WebPRNT

A Developer-Friendly Print Solution

EDISON, NJ--(Marketwired - Oct 31, 2013) - Keeping up with the emerging omnichannel business model and growing customer demand for mobility, businesses are turning to web-based applications as a cost effective way to stay agile. Web-based point-of-sale (POS) services are becoming more commonplace as businesses streamline their operations and create mobile friendly environments for their customers.

To support customers' use of web-based POS applications, Star Micronics delivers WebPRNT, an innovative device-agnostic receipt printing technology that supports HTTP requests used in web-based applications.

WebPRNT is currently available with Star's TSP650II thermal receipt printer, which is equipped with Ethernet connectivity. It is easy to read, maintain and modify for developers. Simply use the appropriate XML tags, or integrate Star's WebPRNT Javascript library into your web-based application, to begin printing from your application to Star's TSP650II WebPRNT thermal receipt printer.

In addition to web-based applications, Star's WebPRNT also supports HTTP requests from native applications.

BENEFITS

  • Ease of Use
    WebPRNT eliminates the need to install drivers or download software. It enables printing from any local device that hosts a web-based or native application to Star's TSP650II WebPRNT thermal receipt printer.

  • Low Equipment Cost
    Competitively priced, WebPRNT enables printing from any application compatible with all operating platforms -- without the need for expensive multiplatform development costs.

  • Integration
    Simply integrate WebPRNT by sending easy-to-understand and maintain XML tags from your application. Or, if you are creating a web based application, use WebPRNT's ready-made Javascript library, which can format and send the receipt data via a simple to use API. WebPRNT hosts an HTTP server that can accept HTTP requests, enabling printing from a web-based or native application on any device or platform.

  • Compatibility
    WebPRNT allows users to print from their application to Star's TSP650II WebPRNT thermal receipt printer from any device (Mac, PC, tablet, smartphone, etc.) regardless of its operating platform (Windows, iOS, Android, etc.).
