LONG BEACH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Epson America, Inc., a leading supplier of value-added Point of Sale (POS) solutions, today announced that ToGoTechnologies, a provider of affordable, best-in-class customer engagement and e-commerce solutions, has certified the Epson OmniLink™ TM-T88V-i smart printer for its mobile and online ordering solution, which is a great fit for single and multi-unit restaurant operators. ToGo’s solution leverages Epson’s ePOS-print and Server Direct Print technologies to create a proactive two-way communication channel between the OmniLink TM-T88V-i in the restaurant and ToGo’s cloud services, also known as OrderCloud. The bundled solution is available from ToGoTechnologies today in partnership with Heartland Payment Systems, who is bringing it to market nationally.
“Our partnership with ToGoTechnologies, a great innovator in providing customer driven-cloud services, provides restaurants with a simple and cost effective way to extend their brand and menu to their respective customers,” said Tom Kettell, senior manager of North American Sales for Epson’s Business Systems Division. “Our joint effort helps continue the adoption of mobile solutions by restaurants to better facilitate the way their customers want to be served.”
“Epson’s OmniLink TM-T88V-i allows us to deploy mobile and online solutions quickly and effectively without the requirement for POS integration,” said Dan Simpson, CEO and co-founder of ToGoTechnologies. “The intelligent technology Epson brings to the table allows for streamlined adoption of cloud-based applications by developers as well as restaurants. And while there is great value for merchants, the real winner is the restaurant consumer. Whether on the web, on Facebook, or on their smartphone, they are able to order anytime, from anywhere.”
Epson's OmniLink TM-T88V-i is platform-independent and already integrated with ToGoTechnologies OrderCloud solution allowing restaurants and hotel kitchens to accept mobile and online orders and payments directly, which enables them to prepare orders more quickly, more accurately and more efficiently than ever before.
“Combining best in class technology from Epson and ToGo gives our restaurant operators an easy and reliable solution that integrates into their current kitchen operations without having to make costly POS changes,” said Jamie Myers, director of Consumer Mobile Products at Heartland.
With its built-in processing power and unique ePOS technology, Epson’s OmniLink TM-T88V-i supports web-based printing from any mobile device with no print drivers, plug-ins, PCs or costly application changes. It also enables mobile devices to communicate directly with peripherals connected to the OmniLinkTM-T88V-i such as a bump bar, kitchen display or up to 20 slave kitchen printers.
