4 Elements of a Valuable ISV-Hardware Integration Partnership

With so many hardware vendors to choose from — and many vying for you as an integration partner — it may not be clear which direction to take.

Available Tools

Star Micronics prioritizes supporting software development and ensures our printer SDKs, as well as drivers, manuals, FAQs, and troubleshooting information, are readily available on the Star Micronics Help Center website, including code-sharing platforms like GitHub.

Industry-Leading Technology

Our comprehensive portfolio of POS hardware – from receipt and label printers to scales and cash drawers – is made even stronger by its technology, including online order printing, cloud printing technology, web-based POS capabilities, SDKs for label printers, Bluetooth printers, and much more.

Solutions Partners

Partnerships are our priority at Star. We only succeed when our partners do. Our dedicated integration team is available to help you develop customized solutions, no matter which industry you’re in – restaurant, retail, cannabis, and beyond. Additionally, Star SDKs are easily accessible on GitHub.

Always Leading, Always Innovating

It’s not just a slogan. Innovation runs deep at Star. Star Micronics has been a leader in the POS space for decades. We are proud of our many industry-firsts, ranging from the first thermal printer in 1992 to the first printer with multimedia printing capability in 2023.

One of our most recent innovations, the next generation of our StarXpand™ SDK, is available for iOS and Android, and enables Star printer control for the popular cross-platform framework, React Native, with more to come!

Designed to shorten development time and reduce maintenance costs, its StarIO10 framework features asynchronous communication, an emulation-free design, human-readable command creation, faster printer search, and easy-to-use debugging log communications.
