Epson Launches Revolutionary TM-T88VI Series POS Printers
Multi-interface mobile connectivity, supports mobile, web and PC-based POS services and NFC Integration, faster transaction speeds, enhanced energy and paper savings

Sydney, 14 June 2017 – Epson Australia has significantly raised the bar in the POS industry with the introduction of its flagship TM-T88VI series, the latest addition to Epson’s growing family of intelligent POS printers. Offering a rich feature set for mobile POS and cloud services, the new TM-T88VI is ideal for merchants in high volume retail, hospitality, and financial institutions where advanced connectivity and speed of check out is critical. It maximises customers’ flexibility to deliver a high quality transaction experience. The company has also added the TM-T88VI-i printers, which extend connectivity to POS peripherals in mobile POS environments and improve storage capacity for local apps and web server support.

The TM-T88VI is designed to work with both traditional PC-based POS systems and increasingly popular web and mobile setups. This makes it ideal for shop, bar and restaurant owners who want to develop new ways of interacting with customers, and also for those who just want to run a combined or traditional setup.


As well as versatility, the TM-T88VI offers outstanding performance, with print speeds of up to 350 mm/s, and Epson’s proven reliability. A backward paper-feeding function helps save paper without affecting performance, reducing running costs and paper waste.

Epson Australia general manager Craig Heckenberg said, “The TM-T88VI gives businesses the ability to add web and mobile POS services in stages, or run systems alone or in parallel if they choose. Many businesses, especially in the retail and restaurant sectors, are keen to leverage web and mobile POS solutions to improve efficiency and customer satisfaction, but they don’t want to commit to an entirely new system straight away. The TM-T88VI can be implemented with existing infrastructure.”

Server Direct Print functionality allows the TM-T88VI to print direct from a web server. It also supports beacons, to help mobile devices identify the nearest printer, making it ideal for POS environments with multiple printer installations, while NFC support makes it easy to pair tablets, smartphones and other mobile devices.

The TM-T88VI has exactly the same footprint as the TM-T88V, allowing you to upgrade to a brand new system without having to rearrange your counter space, and is available in both black and white to suit any shop, bar or restaurant decor.
