BOURG-LÈS-VALENCE, FRANCE –  Datamax-O’Neil, a leading manufacturer of stationary, vehicle mount, portable label and receipt printers, announces the availability of a new version of its Apex portable printer series that is Bluetooth compatible with Apple® iOS 5.0 and 6.0 iPhones®, iPads® and iPod® Touch products.

The popular Apex portable printer is now available as an Apple® certified MFi printing solution to meet the growing trend of B2B applications that utilize Apple® iOS devices. "The 2, 3 and 4 inch printing capabilities offered by the Apex i series address the expanding presence of Apple® iOS products that are making their way into enterprises around the world that require a printing solution," said John Murphy, senior product manager for Datamax-O’Neil. "Mobile POS, route accounting and direct store delivery applications are increasingly seeing the benefits of utilizing Apple® iOS devices, and the Apex i, with its high reliability, ease of use and light weight, is a perfect complement. In particular, the Apex 4i will be useful printing reports that a technician can leave with a customer while retaining a copy for the main office."

The Apex i series printers come equipped with a D-O Toolkit that will help users quickly adapt the printers into their enterprise environment. The Toolkit offers several intuitive features including a "scan" module that will link the Apple® iOS device to the Apex i printer, allowing it to read and display various printer statistics, such as battery voltage, timer, temperature, remaining print buffer, and other important information. The kit also includes a "configuration" utility, a "presentation" module that includes demos for printing receipts, forms, logos and barcodes, as well as an “information” module, which provides information about Datamax-O’Neil and the Toolkit application.
