Maxatec Mobilises Apple iOS Printing for Major Retailer

January 6th, 2014
Product News

Altrincham, 06 January 2014 : Maxatec is responding to retailers who are looking for suitable wireless printing solutions to use with Apple iPad systems. With the advent of iOS in retail the obstacle has been the ability to print directly at the point of service. With the Maxatec MT-200E desktop WiFi printer, the bottleneck has been cleared enabling retailers to enhance service levels, which is increasing footfall and business.

“One of the issues with iOS retail applications has been printing a receipt or copy of the customer transaction at the point of service. The mobile devices run software applications that are detached from the main EPOS network, but we’ve solved the problem by working closely with our printer technology partners and we can offer a range of desktop and portable printers available with iOS software development kits,” says Steve Berry, Director, Maxatec.

Altrincham, UK 16 October 2013: Maxatec is forging ahead with its range of Android 4 compatible rugged portable computers that can provide rapid return on investment. The company now offers three devices that utilise the most popular mobile operating system worldwide.

Companies are realising Android’s power, utility and user-friendliness can make it ideal for deploying rugged handheld devices equipped with a familiar operating system that their workforce already understands because they use it with their mobile phones.

Among the Android 4 products are the Bluebird Pidion HM45 rugged smartphone, BP50 7-in tablet PC and larger BP70 10.1-in business pad.
