Epson Showcases Range of POS Applications on OmniLink DT-Series

Today at the National Retail Federation’s 103rd Annual Convention and Expo (NRF), Epson America, Inc., a leading supplier of value-added Point of Sale (POS) solutions, shows retailers a wide range of partner solutions that demonstrate the configuration flexibility of its OmniLink™ DT-Series smart devices. Jam-packed with industry-leading POS printing, web server, print server, peripheral connectivity and PC computing power, Epson’s OmniLink DT-Series smart devices are powerful enough to serve as an entire POS system yet small enough to fit almost anywhere. With diverse applications such as POS replacement, thin client, web POS and legacy-system integration, Epson partners demonstrate how these devices are redefining POS systems, and allowing retailers to run smarter, more mobile and more connected stores.

“Mobile and cloud technologies are transforming POS architecture, footprint and functionality, and we – along with our partners – are leading the way,” commented Gregg Brunnick, Director of Marketing for Epson’s Business Systems Division. “With OmniLink, Epson provides the bridge between legacy and mobile POS, enabling retailers to evolve as quickly as they want to best serve their customers.”

Epson’s OmniLink DT-Series is designed for retailers looking to implement any number of POS configurations to gain the benefits of flexible POS functionality. The devices include a retail-hardened PC powered by an Intel Atom 1.8GHz processor. In addition, the DT-Series features six USB ports for connecting POS peripherals like scanners, keyboards, displays, and cash drawers. It also supports mobile POS deployments with the added capability of a built-in web server and Epson’s ePOS-print technology for driverless web-based printing. The following partner solutions, built on Epson’s OmniLink DT-Series devices, will be showcased in at NRF:
