The Star Software Advantage

What makes a great POS hardware partner? Even with being a manufacturer of a proven line of receipt printers rich in high reliability and convenient useful features, Star understands hardware alone is not enough. A great partner must provide advanced solutions and full support for integrations in any environment.

Proudly and confidently standing behind all the products we manufacture, Star has invested an enormous amount of resources to developing the best drivers, software, utilities and SDKs available. Star consistently leads the way in software innovation, being the first to release POS Printer Linux and Mac drivers and introducing new concepts like the All-in-One futurePRNT and StarPRNT solutions.

Windows Drivers

Star provides drivers for all Windows operating systems and environments, including 32-bit and 64-bit support. Installing printers is a breeze with the digitally signed (WHQL) driver on the Installation CD included with most printer models. Printer configuration is also very convenient in the free Configuration Utility, also available in 32-bit and 64-bit environments.

The Star Windows driver range covers Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7, OPOS and JavaPOS.

As a respected industry leader and member of NRF ARTS, Star fully observes standards and offers developer and integrator-friendly support for UPOS. UPOS is the collective name for the OPOS, POS for .NET and JavaPOS standards, making the integration of multiple POS devices a quicker and simpler process for developers. Star has also joined in the development of WS-POS, a new standard that is now being defined and will be added to the UPOS collection in the future.

StarIO is the ultimate resource to implementing receipt printers into software including sample code and detailed documentation. The package is available in a variety of programming languages and environments including many flavors of Windows, Linux, Mac, Android, iPad™, iPhone® and iPod Touch®.
