LONG BEACH, Calif., Sept. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Epson America, Inc. a leading supplier of value-added Point of Sale (POS) solutions, today announced that MoblTabl, a provider of a mobile, cloud-based ordering management application for food and services, has selected Epson's Omnilink® TM-T88V-i and OmniLink TM-T20II-i intelligent printers for their unique ePOS™ Print and Server Direct Print technologies to facilitate the food and service ordering process and help stadiums, restaurants and convention centers capitalize on an added revenue stream. The solution is available from MoblTabl today.
According to the recently released National Restaurant Association report "Restaurant Industry 2020: A Snapshot of the Future," Industry competition will continue to intensify in the years ahead, and operators will have to focus on offering elevated levels of food and service in tandem with technological enhancements. The integration of MoblTabl with Epson smart printers is a prime example of recognizing this need and enabling improved service incorporating the latest technology advancements.
MoblTabl's application leverages Epson's ePOS Print and Server Direct Print technologies to manage tasks as well as orders that come directly from customers' smart phones and tablets. The OmniLink TM-T88V-i and OmniLink TM-T20II-i act as printer hubs and can also communicate with MoblTabl's cloud server to check on reservations and orders, which ensures the highest level of order processing. The data stored in the cloud and notifications tied to events improve staff mobility and efficiency.
"By providing a downloadable application that enables customers to place orders, request service and pay their bills with their own smartphones, MoblTabl is taking mobile online ordering to a higher level of performance," said Tom Kettell, director, commercial channel sales at Epson. "By integrating MoblTabl with our seamless and smart printing solutions, MoblTabl can further facilitate the way customers want to be served and expedite ordering while reducing operating delays. My personal favorite is how customers at a game can order food right from their phone so they don't have to miss any of the action."
"It's all about convenience for the customer and Epson provides the ideal addition to our mobile online ordering solution," said George Verghis, CEO of MoblTabl. "Epson's TM-i intelligent printer series' ability to communicate directly with remote devices without the need for a server or PC, was a key factor in the selection. Stadium and arena guest can now order food from the comfort of their seats, reducing long lines at concession stands and increasing the sales window."
