Star Micronics and MMF POS Cash In on mPOS Solution

EDISON, NJ and WHEELING, IL -- (Marketwired) -- 03/20/14 -- MMF POS, a leading supplier of cash drawers and accessories, has chosen Star Micronics to help strengthen its mobile POS (mPOS) cash management solution. Star Micronics' DK-AirCash units will enable wireless control of MMF cash drawers, including the Advantage® ADV-INABOX Drawer as well as the VAL-u Line® Series drawers.

MMF's Advantage® ADV-INABOX Drawer is a robust printer-driven 24V Cash Drawer with Star® Interface Kwick Kable bundled all INABOX. This package also comes standard with the patented LockIt™ feature, a hidden locked compartment beneath the currency till for safe storage of larger bills. In addition to its Advantage® ADV-INABOX Drawer, MMF's VAL-u Line® Series 13"x16" and 13"x13" drawers (Electronic 24Vdc version) offer customers a cost-effective and compact cash management solution with durable construction and high-quality standards.

"We chose Star Micronics because of their progressive mPOS technology," Phil Oyos, Sales and Marketing Manager, MMF POS, said. "Integrating the DK AirCash enables us to offer a complete, robust mobile solution and empowers our customers to keep pace with the rapidly growing trend towards mobility."

Once integrated, Star's DK-AirCash enables communication from a tablet device and mobile printer with the cash drawer. Traditionally, cash drawers are controlled manually (key operated), by a wired connection to a PC or through a wired connection to a printer. The DK-AirCash enables the control of the cash drawer either directly through an Ethernet, Bluetooth or MFi certified Bluetooth connection. Star's DK-AirCash makes wireless operation of cash drawers possible. With MFi certification from Apple®, Star's DK-AirCash is compatible with popular Apple® devices such as iPhone®, iPad® and iPod touch® in addition to devices running on Android and Windows platforms.

It often just shifts the burden sideways (e.g., to PMs, SQA, InfoSec, DBAs, NOC, etc.), upstream (to the PMO, Controller, Business Liaison, etc.), or downstream (to TechPubs, Service Desk, Traini...
