SOMERSET, NJ--(Marketwired - May 17, 2016) - Star Micronics, a leading provider of point of sale and proof of transaction technology announced a solution for quiet and seamless restaurant printing which complements Meerchant's ChowBOT solution.

The ChowBOT app, available in First Data's Clover App Market, offers a complete platform for online ordering and delivery. Meerchant's ChowBOT™ solution for Clover lets restaurants maintain and grow customer relationships by easily creating their own online ordering and delivery site. Additionally, ChowBOT enables the "holy grail" of capturing 3rd party online orders (e.g. GrubHub, Eat24, etc.) and funneling them directly into the POS and to the restaurant printer, solving a major operational pain point for today's restaurants. 

Meerchant found Star Micronics TSP100III Wi-Fi printer to be a great option for restaurants looking for a printing solution, as it allows for a 100% wireless set-up. The TSP100III thermal POS printer prints at a high-speed and only requires a push of a button to integrate with its simple WPS "Push 'n' Connect" set-up.

"Our aim in integrating Star's TSP100III wireless printer was to simplify the workflow of orders to the restaurant," says Gerardo Capiel, Co-Founder and CEO of Meerchant. "Wireless printers are extremely convenient for our ChowBOT app customers because the set-up is simple and they can be dropped anywhere, making the TSP100III the perfect solution for us."
