Experience Retail Mobile Technology in Action
Here’s a snapshot of Brother business partner ProxToMe and other partners who will be on hand in Booth #653, along with the solutions they will demonstrate:
ProxToMe gives thermal printing solutions industry stakeholders - manufacturers, ISVs, VARs, brands, and operators - the toolbox to “pimp their printers” and easily create what wasn’t possible before: mobile cloud printing, real-time diagnostic and data collection, along with bridging printers with consumer tools like mobile apps and chatbots to turn each transaction into a two-way conversation. The ProxToMe toolbox is an Internet of Things (IoT) platform to add cloud intelligence and proximity interaction capability to receipt and label printers. In short, it makes printers smarter, and therefore more valuable.
The ProxToMe showsite demonstration will focus on its Mobile Device Manager module, a robust device-monitoring and diagnostic mobile app, which provides remote location visibility and real-time monitoring statistics. This innovative app will be demonstrated on Brother TD-2000 and RuggedJet® 3 Series mobile label and receipt printers. More at www.proxtome.com.
