Epson has announced that it has further strengthened its POS range in the Middle East with the launch of the TM-H6000IV, which combines greyscale receipt printing, slip printing and cheque processing in one compact device with a low total cost of ownership (TCO). Building on the success of the TM-H6000III, the TM-H6000IV features improved power efficiency and reduced paper usage to help retailers lower their overheads. It’s designed to keep administrators satisfied too, with a new remote management feature, easy installation and two interfaces onboard.
Retailers can shrink their paper usage by up to 31 per cent with the TM-H6000IV’s paper save feature. Instead of squeezing logos and text, which causes distortion and can compromise legibility, the paper save feature automatically reduces blank spaces and barcode height. It also prints the top of the next receipt before cutting the current one to decrease the top margin.
Further reducing TCO, the TM-H6000IV lowers utility overheads with its ENERGY STAR-qualified power efficiency.
Khalil El-Dalu, General Manager, Epson Middle East, said: "There is a growing need for more powerful POS capabilities in the Middle East as business enterprises in the region seek to capitalise on the latest technological advances to enhance business performance. Epson has developed and introduced the TM-H6000IV to address this emerging demand. Among its new features, the TM-H6000IV offers a new remote management functionality that saves time and helps simplify network management.”
Integration is just as simple, thanks to the TM-H6000IV’s wide interface compatibility. With USB included as standard in addition to the changeable second interface, retailers have the freedom to switch to a USB environment at any time.
Epson is the only POS printer manufacturer to offer true greyscale receipt printing, and can help retailers make a good impression on customers with high-quality receipts. The TM-H6000IV delivers eye-catching greyscale logos and graphics, ideal for reinforcing branding or communicating special offers more effectively.
Every transaction is fast and fuss-free with the TM-H6000IV’s improved print speeds of up to 300mm/sec for receipts and 5.7 lines per second for slips. To ensure customers are not frustrated by cheque processing failures, the optional MICR reader has an accuracy rate of over 99 percent.
Straightforward to use, even for inexperienced operators, the TM-H6000IV has a large paper slot to allow trouble-free insertion of slips and cheques. Changing consumables is a safe, one-handed job, with no sharp edges or exposed parts.
The TM-H6000IV has a small footprint (186 x 278 x 181mm) to fit easily into most environments, including counters with limited space. Other key features of the TM-H6000IV are fast thermal receipt printer with dot matrix printer for slips and cheques, ribbon lasts up to 3 million characters, and optional endorsement printing at up to 4.0 lines per second.
