Star Micronics is proud to offer to the owners of our TSP100 futurePRNT printer a palette of tools that will provide them the ability to enhance the look of their receipts and also help them to solve issues that their standard POS software cannot.
Here are a few of these tools:
• Add Image
• Crop Receipt and Pre-View Tools
• Text Replacement
• Auto Text Reversal
The new IMAGE IMPORT TOOL simplifies the usual logo store set-up by eliminating the need for the usual image preparation work. An unlimited number of mono or colour jpgs, gifs and bmps can be accessed by the control panel, saved by name and even prepared for output with a choice of dither methods. There is no longer any need to pre-size or pre-save an image file as a mono bmp, as was so often required by other POS printers. The TSP100’s unique installation setup facility will allow PCs to be preinstalled (not necessarily with the printer connected) for multiple printer use across the whole store.
The new PRE-VIEW TOOL provides retailers and system builders with the ability to pre-check the overall appearance of planned receipts by using the pre-view tool during set-up. This simple tool, again a rare facility in the POS world, will save much time.
This revolutionary new tool has been designed to work completely independently from your current POS software and will allow any user to literally re-design their receipts without changingtheir software. Legacy software can have embedded text and graphics which you may have always wanted to change. Now you can, with the new RECEIPT CROPPING TOOL which will crop unwanted sections, thus creating space for new graphics and text. This feature can also save you many $$ by cropping unnecessary white spaces.The unique Star Selectable PRE-VIEW TOOL will make this task even easier.
With this tool, it is possible to replace the selected Keyword(s) with a new string. This could be extremely useful if there is an old phone number or address that needs to be changed on a legacy application that cannot be changed programmatically.
Auto Text Reversal:
All the TSP100’s printer features are available from the printer properties page in Windows, including unique features such as Auto-Text Reversal™ for wall mounted or vertical operation. Simply tick the box and all output will be automatically turned upside down for user comfort. All settings can be stored on the PC and “mirrored” across other TSP100 printers with a simple export configuration feature for mass system installations. No hardware configuration is needed at all!
