Hamden, CT – June 18, 2014 – TransAct Technologies Incorporated (Nasdaq: TACT), a global leader in market-specific solutions, including printers, terminals, software and other products for transaction-based and other industries, announced today that the Company will appear at the Texas Restaurant Association (“TRA”) Marketplace 2014 on June 22-23, 2014. Held at the George R. Brown Convention Center (Booth #2017) in Houston, Texas, TRA Marketplace 2014 is the second largest foodservice trade show in the U.S. and features a wide variety of industry-leading technologies and solutions for foodservice operators of all sizes and across all markets.
Headlining the Company’s display at TRA Marketplace 2014 will be the many consumable products and services offered by TransAct Services Group. Through a dedicated website (www.transactsupplies.com) and team of phone representatives, TransAct Services Group provides easy, one-stop shopping for restaurant operators’ consumable needs – including ink cartridges, ribbons, receipt paper and other printing supplies – and offers its customers spare parts sales and aftermarket repair services.
TransAct will also demonstrate at Booth #2017 its industry-leading line of Ithaca food safety terminals. The Ithaca® 9700 food safety terminal features a large, easy-to-read 8.4-inch color touch screen display, allowing users to quickly print easy-to-read food rotation labels and “sell by” date labels thus mitigating food spoilage. It allows operators to quickly change their menu items, print accurate calorie counts on food items and generate accurate “prep” and “grab-and-go” labels via an internal real-time clock. The Ithaca 9700 is an industry-unique offering that saves time, cuts food waste, reduces labor costs and reduces the risk of food spoilage. Available in 1- or 2-printer configurations, the Ithaca 9700 offers simple drop-in label loading and can handle a variety of label widths and lengths.
The new Ithaca 9800 food safety terminal, the foodservice industry’s first fully-integrated terminal to offer direct Internet connectivity, allows for seamless integration with several of the industry’s most widely used restaurant management systems. Designed as a complement to the Ithaca 9700, the addition of Internet connectivity makes it the ideal choice for casual restaurants, schools, hospitals and hotels where menus change more frequently. The new Ithaca 9800 food safety terminal helps reduce food waste, improves kitchen efficiency, outputs food rotation labels, is easily updated with daily specials and can perform inventory actions when connected to back office management systems, allowing it to assist in the management of food waste and reduce the over ordering of food.
In addition, the Ithaca 9000 is a highly versatile, multi-function solution that allows foodservice vendors to print receipts, sticky grill labels and sticky custom beverage labels from a single printer. Featuring the industry’s fastest print speed at 12 inches per second, the Ithaca 9000 accommodates plain or sticky thermal paper of three different sizes and can automatically sense the paper size loaded and reconfigure itself accordingly.
