In the banking market, it sells printers that are used by banks, credit unions, and other financial institutions to print and/or validate receipts at bank teller stations. In the POS market, the company sells various models of printers utilizing inkjet, thermal, and impact printing technology. The company’s printers are used primarily by retailers in the restaurant (including fine dining, casual dining, and fast food), hospitality, and specialty retail industries to print receipts for consumers, validate checks, or print on linerless labels or other inserted media.
