NASHVILLE, Tenn. (RetailNOW) – July 26, 2021 – As merchants are adapting to an ever-evolving industry with online ordering and ecommerce expanding in retail and hospitality, Epson, a market leader of POS printing solutions, today announced the fastest POS receipt printer in the industry1 – the OmniLink® TM-T88VII. As the latest model in Epson’s most popular POS printer line which has sold over 4.5 million units in North America,2 the OmniLink TM-T88VII offers lightning-fast print speeds and flexible connectivity between multiple devices to help merchants – particularly in high-volume industries such as hospitality, retail and grocery – deliver the best customer experience in virtually every environment.
“When it comes to completing customer transactions and keeping lines moving, we understand that time is money and merchants need a printer they can depend on for high-volume checkout environments,” said David Vander Dussen, product manager, Epson America. “The new OmniLink TM-T88VII was designed for incredibly fast print speeds, reliability, advanced functionality, and flexible connectivity to help merchants best serve customers. But this printer is not only good for merchants and customers, it’s also good for business.”
Fast, Flexible and Reliable
The OmniLink TM-T88VII replaces both the top-selling TM-T88V and TM-T88VI POS receipt printer models and is the easiest and fastest T88-series product to configure and deploy. The new model delivers fast print speeds up to 500 mm/sec1 and a high-speed auto cutter, as well as a long printhead and auto cutter life3 and a four-year limited warranty for advanced reliability.
The OmniLink TM-T88VII can be dynamically shared with fixed PC-POS terminals as well as mobile devices and cloud servers at the same time. With the vertical mounting kit, the printer has flexible configuration options and can connect to almost any system with built-in Ethernet and USB, along with options including Serial, Parallel, Powered USB, and Wi-Fi®.
Easy to Setup and Use
The OmniLink TM-T88VII has streamlined the setup process with an improved Epson TM Utility app – available on both PC and mobile devices – which includes a new simple set up tool for easy configuration and deployment of new printers. In addition, the Epson TM Utility app enables integrators to seamlessly upgrade from prior T88 models to the TM-T88VII without losing pre-configured settings and disrupting existing workflows.
As e-commerce and online ordering continues to skyrocket, the OmniLink TM-T88VII is online order ready and can retrieve orders from a web server and print from web-based applications using Epson’s ePOS™ Print Technology or utilize Server Direct Print technology without installing any additional hardware or POS software integration. Users can easily and securely print as the TM-T88VII offers support for the latest WPA3 Wi-Fi security standard.
Designed specifically with high-volume merchants in mind, additional features include:
- POS peripheral support – Supports POS peripherals including barcode scanners and customer displays
- Smaller, lighter power supply – New easier to manage power supply takes up less space on or under counters
- Easy to understand – Status LEDs and network diagnostic sheet improve on-site network troubleshooting
- Advanced paper-saving functions – Top-margin and character-height reduction features help reduce paper usage by up to 49 percent4
- Robust case – New enclosure is designed to be spill-resistant for the most demanding hospitality environments, and can be cleaned with isopropyl alcohol solutions without affecting printer performance
