Mobile technology is becoming an integral component of point-of-sale retail technology. To keep consumers in store instead of shopping online, retailers are turning to wireless and mobile devices to improve and enhance the customer’s shopping experience.
Queue Busting has taken hold across a number of major retailers nationwide. To keep long lines to a minimum and speed up the checkout process, retailers are introducing mobile POS systems that allow sales associates to scan items, swipe credit cards and print receipts from anywhere in the store. Associates can’t be weighed down with multiple different devices for each part of the transaction, which is where multi-function mobile printers can help streamline the process.
Retailers are looking for small, wireless printers that can easily clip to a belt or an apron for associates to use with mobile transactions. A long battery life for all day use is needed to keep downtime to a minimum, and high capacity media rolls keep printers moving without repeated media changing or jamming. The Citizen line of CMP-20/CMP-30 mobile printers offer all these features and more to help retailers looking for on-the-go checkout solutions.
Citizen‘s CMP series of mobile POS receipt and label printers are designed for maximum wireless freedom, with up to 16 hours of active run time thanks to its Lithium Ion battery, that can also be recharged onboard or via an external charging station to keep sales moving. It also offers a magnetic stripe reader and IC card reader options, along with 128-bit encryption and non-discovery modes for secure credit cards transactions on the spot, reducing the number of devices employees need to keep on them.
These simple to use, easy to operate mobile printers are ideal not only for queue busting and mobile receipts, but also for delivery slips, price markdowns, labeling, ticketing, payments and even taxi and other mobile service support.
