Retail Pro Certifies Brother Mobile Solutions’ TD-2000 Printers for Use with Retail Software

Designed for Retail Environments, the Powered Desktop Thermal Printers Combine Desktop and Mobile Functionality to Print Labels, Tags and Receipts from Virtually Anywhere in the Store

Broomfield, CO, Sept. 24, 2013 – Brother Mobile Solutions, Inc. (BMS) a wholly-owned subsidiary of Brother International Corporation and premier provider of mobile and desktop thermal printing products, today announced that Retail Pro International, LLC has certified the Brother™ TD-2000 Series powered desktop thermal printers for use with Retail Pro® signature software solutions. Retail Pro International provides industry-leading retail management software applications to specialty retailers worldwide.

“In this tough economic climate, retailers battle every day to increase efficiencies across all operational areas”

Mike Bishop, Vice President of Business Development for Retail Pro International, notes: “We certified the Brother TD-2000 printers because they are compact, and are expressly designed to provide optimal versatility, delivering a combination of desktop and mobile performance previously unmatched in a single printing solution. This means retailers can quickly and easily print receipts, labels and tags from any location in the store, without the inconvenience of cords and the need for proximity to a power supply.”

“We are excited to partner with Retail Pro International in supplying its customers with a line of printers we developed specifically to meet the challenges of the retail industry,” said David Crist, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing for Brother Mobile Solutions. “With IT spending expected to grow over the next two years and retailers even now preparing for the coming holiday season, the time is right to deploy next-generation technologies – such as Retail Pro software and Brother Mobile printers – that can help retailers boost speed, productivity and customer service.”

“In this tough economic climate, retailers battle every day to increase efficiencies across all operational areas,” Crist continued. “They are very interested in flexible, multi-functional technologies and devices that address more than one need or solve more than one challenge. They also appreciate solutions flexible enough to change and adapt as new technologies continue to emerge. That’s why our TD-2000 Series printers were enthusiastically received when they launched earlier this year.”

The TD-2000 Series printers are true hybrids that can be moved freely throughout the retail environment and still deliver the features and functionality of desktop models. With a compact footprint, the printers fit on counters or carts and produce clear, crisp direct thermal printed tags, labels, receipts and more, thanks to Wi-Fi® network or Bluetooth® wireless connectivity and battery powered mobile options, providing new levels of flexibility and movement to the retail world.
