HAMDEN, CT., April 18, 2013– TransAct Technologies Incorporated (NASDAQ: TACT), a global leader in market-specific solutions, including printers, food safety terminals, software and other products for transaction-based and other industries, announced today that they will demonstrate their innovative Ithaca® 9000 printer and Ithaca® 9700 Food Safety terminal at the Southeastern KFC Franchisee Association Spring Meeting. This year’s meeting takes place April 21 – 23 at the Renaissance Waverly Hotel in Atlanta, GA.

The TransAct team will provide hands-on demonstrations of these revolutionary new products that significantly contribute to operational efficiency.

The Ithaca® 9000 thermal printer provides flexibility to print receipts, sticky grill labels or sticky custom beverage labels all from the same printer. This versatile multi-purpose printer uses wither 40mm, 58mm, or 80mm paper as well as plain or sticky thermal paper and automatically senses what paper has been loaded. In addition, it is the industry’s fastest receipt printer at 12 inches per second.

Ithaca® 9700The Ithaca® 9700 Food Safety Terminal features an 8.4 inch easy to read color touch screen with a choice of one of two printer configurations to print food labels that are needed when food items are opened and then put back into refrigerators, freezers or on shelves. These items have specific shelf life and the labels clearly indicate when the item expires. In addition, the Ithaca® 9700 also prints labels for grab-and-go items such as salads, sandwiches and soups and will allow food establishments to print ingredients, calories and sell-by dates.

It has an easy snap-in/snap-out printer mechanism for flexibility and serviceability and each can be used for multiple width labels, making drop-in label loading simple. In addition, the terminals can be sold with a PC-based software companion utility for quick menu and inventory updates.
