Role of Barcode Scanners and Thermal Receipt Printers in a POS System


Summery : Barcode scanners are used in retail business for a myriad of different reasons. Warehouse owners and
retailers use barcode scanners to keep a tally of several items and keep aneye on their prices and stocks.

Nowadays, point-of-sale systems have become an integral part in retail stores. The sole purpose of
POS system is to make the process of sale and purchase easy and organised. Ideally, a point-of-sale hardware
includes a POS computer, keyboard, cash drawer, POS monitor, customer pole display, barcode scanners and
receipt printers.

Barcode scanners are used in retail business for a myriad of different reasons. Warehouse owners and retailers
use barcode scanners to keep a tally of several items and keep an eye on their prices and stocks. These scanners
read barcodes printed on various surfaces of the products with the help of decoder circuitry which converts the
barcode into a number.

Types of barcode scanners include hand-held scanners, cordless laser barcode scanners, Omni directional desktop
barcode scanners, area imager, USB scanners, wand scanners and PDA scanners.

Like barcode scanners, thermal receipt scanners are also vital to the POS system. Thermal receipt printers are
better than inkjet printers because they can be used by the sales personnel on the field and even without
electricity. Thermal printers use heat-sensitive receipt paper to create an image through a chemical reaction. The
initial cost of thermal receipt printers is higher than that of inkjet printers, but in long-term it comes out be a
good investment decision. There are some models of thermal receipt printers that can print 2-color as well.

Thermal receipt printers are beneficial for retail stores that need faster operation. They are not suitable for heat-
intensive environmen.


Some of the benefits of a thermal receipt printer include-




i) Faster print throughput- The technology used in a thermal receipt printer facilitates the printing speed.
ii) Leads to shorter checkout time and shorter lines of customers- An efficient thermal receipt printer helps
in performing quick transactions at the sales counter resulting shorter checkout time and lesser time
spent by customers in the waiting lines.
iii) Improved receipt durability- The quality of receipt produced through a thermal receipt printer is better
than that of others, making them more durable.
iv) Almost silent performance- Unlike inkjet printers that are noisy, thermal receipt printers produce the
receipts quietly.
v) Cuts cost- With the help of a thermal receipt printer, retail owners can save cost generally spent on
traditional receipt printing.
vi) Allows payment through credit cards- Receipt printers facilitate payment through credit cards, making it
a sound investment.
