Star Micronics Printer Receives RICS Software Certification

SM-T300 Printer Garnered the Certification After Testing

EDISON, NJ--(Marketwire - Apr 2, 2012) - Star Micronics America, a leading worldwide manufacturer of point of service printers, announces that the SM-T300 has been tested and certified to work with RICS Software.

The rugged, weather-resistant SM-T300 is designed for mobile point of sale applications, such as outdoor events like fairs, flea markets and seasonal shops, where a traditional point of sale system is not practical.

The RICS Software Development and Quality Assurance team were able to certify Star Micronics' SM-T300 Mobile Bluetooth receipt printer by verifying the printer is capable of printing receipts for different POS transactions, such as regular sale, special order or layaway. The SM-T300 receipt printing capability was also tested with RICS Software credit card gateway software. RICS credit card processing partners include Accelerated Payments, Shift4 and SlimCD.

RICS Software also verified that the Star Micronics Driver installation was compatible with their POS installer for various Windows platforms they support including Windows XP Professional, Windows Vista Business and Windows 7.

"We are very excited to announce that the SM-T300 printer is now certified by RICS Software," stated Christophe Naasz, Director of Marketing at Star Micronics. "With the increased interest in mobile solutions, this certification will allow RICS users to seamlessly deploy portable printing solutions."
