Star Micronics announced that more independent software vendors (ISVs) have incorporated mPOP, a all-in-one mobile point of purchase solution, into their retail and hospitality software.

Combining a 58mm Bluetooth thermal printer with a cash drawer, mPOP provides the ultimate space saving mobile POS system for retail and hospitality. Outstanding connectivity and compact design alongside intuitive functionality and simple integration define Star’s unique easily integrated mobile POS system.

AirPOS (AirPOS) offers simple to setup and easy to use POS and payments software for UK and Irish retailers. AirPOS helps its customers to sell efficiently both in their shops and online, control their inventory and analyse crucial business data like never before. “Star is really leading the field with mPOP.

ShopKonnect (ShopKonnect / Engage) delivers measurable results for Bricks & Mortar and Multi Channel Retailers throughout the in-store and online customer lifecycle. ShopKonnect’s Analytics dashboard provides an overview of all customer interactions, financial performance, effectiveness of programmes and shopping trends enabling you to know your customers and their purchase patterns. “It has been so straightforward to integrate mPOP into our software given the excellent technical support we have received from Star.” Sen Sampanthar, CEO, ShopKonnect

Shopwave (Shopwave Connect) empowers retailers to gain a deeper understanding of their day-to-day business across multiple stores by providing enterprise grade, real-time analytics through an easy to use iPad Point of Sale application that is powerful yet easy to use. It facilitates seamless retailer integration with the latest technologies including mobile payments, queue busting tools and live inventory order management. “We are always keen to integrate Star solutions and mPOP is no exception. This unique solution further extends Star’s leading position in terms of providing innovative, high performance mPOS solutions for retail and hospitality.” Ben Brown, Founder, Shopwave

mPOP has received Apple Inc.’s MFi (Made for iPhone, iPad, iPod) certification and works with all major operating systems including Apple iOS, Android and Windows to provide users with a versatile solution that is ready to work with a chosen mobile, software and card payment system.

Bluetooth connectivity results in only one mains cable being required for full operation while the mPOP LED display will quickly determine pairing status as well as any issues such as paper out, etc. With 4 USB ports, additional tablet, phone, scanner, etc charging is available from the one cable.

Simple and stylish, the lightweight and portable solution is just 10cm high and 30cm wide with a sleek design that will complement any counter top. Alternatively, mPOP with front feed receipting can easily be secured under the counter for enhanced space-saving. The system incorporates a reliable 100mm/second thermal printer with intuitive top loading and easy front feed as well as a partial cut guillotine that automatically cuts the 58mm wide receipt. mPOP can be purchased with a plug and play scanner or this can be added as a later option.

The multiple functions and connectivity associated with mPOP make processing customer transactions smooth and effortless for a range of outlets including bars, cafés, florists and pop up shops.

Annette Tarlton, Marketing Director, Star Micronics EMEA, states: “The high level of interest in mPOP among ISVs demonstrates the growing demand for a solution that responds to the needs of the emerging micro merchant. With its wealth of features and sleek design, mPOP represents a new era for mPOS.”
