Intermec introduces industry’s smallest, lightest mobile receipt printers

Retail technology provider Intermec, Inc. recently announced the new PR2 and PR3 mobile receipt printers – the smallest, lightest and most durable receipt printers in their class. The two-inch PR2 and three-inch PR3 mobile printers provide the ideal companion to Intermec’s broad portfolio of mobile computers with shared charging, docking, accessories and remote management capabilities.

Enterprises are able to tailor the printers to their unique business environments while also delivering significant competitive advantages. Built for all day comfort and reliability – easily worn all day using the included belt clip, optional belt loop or shoulder strap – the printers also have the fastest time to first receipt in their class.

 "Intermec is committed to providing fast, flexible solutions that offer mobile field workers the tools they need to transform business operations and reduce infrastructure costs, driving bottom line results," said Chuck Dourlet, Intermec Vice President of Printers & Media. "The flexibility of the new PR2 and PR3 mobile receipt printers offers businesses unique value and a future-proofed approach to managing their overall enterprise mobility solution."

Offering the ultimate in flexibility

Compatible with Intermec’s FlexDock system, the PR2 and PR3 offer a new level of efficiency to docking and charging. Additionally, the modular docking design can offer up to a 20 percent cost saving during initial roll-outs.

"VDC’s research shows that the impact of expenditures on device infrastructure, such as communication docks, battery chargers and the associated facilities, can be as much as 12 percent of the total cost of an enterprise mobility deployment," said Richa Gupta, Barcode Analyst at VDC Research Group. "By integrating the latest line of mobile printers with its FlexDock modular docking system, Intermec is directly addressing the growing need for end-user enterprises to reduce their current and ongoing infrastructure costs."

Providing innovative smart battery monitoring, the PR2 and PR3 offer valuable insight into battery usage and replacement needs before the battery runs out. Field-replaceable batteries can be charged independently of the printer to further maximize convenience and uptime – reducing battery replacement costs by as much as 50 percent over the life of the device.

The PR2 and PR3 also save enterprise customers time and money by fitting into existing infrastructures and interfacing seamlessly via secure Bluetooth® 2.0, USB or IrDA. In addition, the new PR2 and PR3 are the only printers to offer optional integrated PCI compatible MSR and AES encryption, enabling secure payment capture on the go.

With the introduction of the PR2 and PR3, Intermec has further extended its unique printer solutions designed specifically for field mobility customers.

The new PR2 and PR3 mobile receipt printers are available globally through Intermec distribution channels.
