Build a better POS solution: Why your customers need accessories
What comes to mind when you think point-of-sale (POS) hardware? For many, the first thought is printers, but a complete, beneficial solution requires more. For example, peripherals like antimicrobial products and handheld scanners are in high demand as consumers expect faster service, extra buying options and safer indoor spaces. These shifts have pushed offices, healthcare providers, retailers and schools to upgrade their POS solutions or augment existing ones with new hardware and accessories that fit their needs.
 
As a reseller, you know that so many choices and disparate products make it difficult and time-consuming to pull together the POS solutions that best serve your customers. That’s why Star Micronics offers a variety of POS hardware and accessories, all in one place, making it easy to build a customizable, comprehensive POS solution specific for each use.

Accessories complete the POS solution

Without the right POS accessories, your customers are at a disadvantage. No barcode scanner? Workers are forced to type in a long product SKU, wasting time. No antimicrobial cover? Consumers and employees risk exposure to germs. With a full range of POS accessories, Star Micronics can help you determine which products belong in your customer’s solution.
 
Along with a variety of thermal, portable and kiosk printers, the company offers:
 
  • Cash drawers
    Three cash drawer product lines for any use or budget
  • Barcode scanners
    Desktop, handheld and wireless scanners available
  • Scales
    Bluetooth compatible and NTEP certified
  • Stands
    Durable printer and tablet stands
Safeguard high-touch spaces
 
It’s no surprise that the demand for health and safety products has skyrocketed since early 2020. If you sell into healthcare, office supply or education environments, you’ve no doubt seen the need for POS-specific products that protect consumers and workers from viruses and other germs. Many solutions on the market help, but Star Micronics offers exclusive antimicrobial covers that are 99% effective in reducing the spread of germs in high-touch areas.
 
Created with NeverGerms*, these FDA-compliant covers prevent the transfer of germs on numerous surfaces, including:
 
  • Door handles/push bars
  • Restroom surfaces
  • Checkout counters
  • Elevator buttons
In addition to antimicrobial covers, Star Micronics offers POSShield sneeze guards and other safety-specific products designed for certain industries.
