New mobile printers are allowing busy salespeople and retailers to print receipts and labels on the move, removing the need to be tied to a desk or printing station.
Brother International recently launched a range of two-inch mobile label and receipt printers. The devices enable the likes of retail employees to print updated pricing labels on the go, while roving sales and service professionals can print receipts and quotes for customers on the spot, in their client’s home or workplace.
“A 2016 industry survey of 500 retailers revealed that about a third are planning to invest in mobile printers for in-store, warehouse and supply chain operations this year,” says Stefanie Dixon, marketing specialist at Brother International (Australia).
Among the top must-have features cited in our follow up survey are speed, size, reliability and connectivity. RJ-2 mobile printers raise the bar by fulfilling these and many other mobile marketplace needs.”
“Clearly, any business that is equipping a mobile workforce wants the printers they purchase to be compact, durable, easy to use and truly mobile. They also want power options, connectivity options and smooth interoperability across diverse operating systems ‒ all at a competitive price. We believe the new RJ-2 series more than exceeds those expectations.”
The four models support Bluetooth and Wi-Fi technology, and are capable of operating on a range of systems including iOS, Android and Windows.
It comes as part of a wave of innovative new printing products from Brother specifically aimed at the SME sector.
The company also recently unveiled a range of next-gen colour laser printers and multi-function centres aimed at delivering much-needed efficiencies to time-poor businesses.
Features of its new Professional Colour Laser Series include faster printing at up to 31 pages per minute, ultra high-yield cartridges capable of printing up to 9,000 pages, user authentication for added security and mobile capabilities, allowing jobs to be accepted from a range of mobile as well as desktop devices.
