    – New brand “mCollection™ –

    mCollection™ is the peripheral devices brand for mPOS, based on the concepts of ” Stylish Design”, “Compact Size”, “Easy User Experience” and “Common Software (*2)”. The core product of mCollection™ is “mPOP”, the all-in-one printer and cash drawer solution. Total sales have reached 30,000 since its launch in October 2015. The mPOS market is expanding to not only small-scale retailers but also medium/large-scale retailers. mCollection™ will have an extensive lineup including receipt printers, scanner, customer display and cash drawer, to offer the best peripheral devices for retailers of any size.


    – mC-Print2™ and mC-Print3™ –

    mC-Print2™. a 2-inch printer (receipt width of 58 mm) and mC-Print3™, a 3-inch printer (receipt width of 80mm) have a stylish and compact design and are equipped with multiple interfaces to support various environments. The original connection development kit allows you to control a scanner and a customer display through the printer from the host, reducing development time and cost. mC-Print3™ has a paper saving function to minimize the top margin of receipts as well as a splash- proof and insect-proof design for kitchen use.

    The new products are targeted to reach 100,000 units of sales by the end of fiscal year 2020, expanding the market from Japan to USA, Europe, Asia and other worldwide territories. We are already proud of a high market share in mPOS printers and aim to increase this share via this new product launch.


    We will exhibit these printers at “RETAILTECH JAPAN” held at Tokyo International Exhibition Center from March 6 to March 9, 2018.
