Star Micronics answers the call for a reliable, modern and customizable method of alerting kitchen staff to incoming orders
Somerset, NJ – July 24, 2019 – Star Micronics, a leading global manufacturer of mobile, point of sale (POS), and customer engagement technologies, is pleased to announce the arrival of the mC-Sound, an evolved model of the standard kitchen buzzer.
The new mC-Sound can be easily installed into the mC-Print3 kitchen and receipt printer, and is designed to further enhance the printer’s functionality by offering an ideal way to alert staff of incoming orders, even in the busiest, high-decibel kitchen environments.
The buzzer provides a high level of information, including order type, order source, and order urgency level. The distinguished sounds allow kitchen staff to instantly understand what is being ordered, if it is coming from in-house or a specific online ordering application, and what priority it is. Users can choose from a variety of sound types and volumes, and ISVs can assign individual sounds to different order types and playback sounds sent from a host device.
Capable of more customization than ever before, the mC-Sound comes pre-loaded with 16 sounds, and also allows for users to upload or record their own custom message.
The next-level buzzer is complete with a blue LED which illuminates during sound playback for an added visual notification, yet it features an unobtrusive design that blends in with the printer when not in use. The mC-Sound easily fastens on the outer surface of the printer, but can also be hidden within the printer itself for a smaller footprint without sacrificing sound quality.
“We wanted to address the issues of low sound quality, complex installation, and lack of various sounds that the optional BU01 buzzer had,” commented Christophe Naasz, the Director of Business Development at Star Micronics. “The mC-Sound offers the perfect solution to meet the needs of the industry and further improve the performance of the mC-Print3. Now kitchen staff can understand what food is being ordered, and from where – all from a single sound.”
