27.04.23, High Wycombe: International POS solutions provider Star Micronics announces today that global financial technology company SumUp has integrated the Star mC-Print3 packaged printer into the recently launched SumUp Kiosk, designed by Melford Technologies Ltd. Transforming how businesses process orders across retail and hospitality, the kiosk responds to the growing shift towards contactless ordering with minimal but efficient interactions.
Enabling customers to seamlessly order, pay and collect orders via self-order kiosks at quick-service restaurants and retailers, SumUp required a printer that offered a compact design, ease of integration and installation within a kiosk as well as enhanced connectivity for an efficient ordering and transaction process. The mC-Print3 met all these criteria and, with Star CloudPRNT™ technology, is able to receive orders from multiple channels including POS, tablet, web and cloud.
Designed to increase the speed at which both small and large-scale businesses can process orders, the kiosk has the potential to improve customer journeys and reduce queues whilst providing the opportunity for merchants to lower costs and focus on other business operations. Fully customisable with integration options for payments and point of sale as well as remote management, the SumUp kiosk has been successfully rolled out across the UK in a number of stadiums and venues thanks to SumUp’s partnership with leading sports and entertainment caterer Levy UK & Ireland.
Simon Martin, Director & General Manager, Star Micronics EMEA, comments: “Star is pleased that SumUp has selected the mC-Print3 for its recently launched kiosk. This integration illustrates the true versatility of the printer and how it is ideal for kiosk applications. Reinforcing Star’s commitment to providing reliable and flexible printing solutions, the installation builds on an established partnership which has seen a range of Star printers successfully integrated with SumUp POS solutions over recent years.”
