Star Cloud Services, a subsidiary of leading receipt printer manufacturer Star Micronics, has received the 2015 IoT Excellence Award for Innovation presented by TMC and Crossfire Media.

The 2015 IoT Evolution IoT Excellence Award honors innovative products that support the availability of information being deduced, inferred and directly gathered from sensors, systems and anything else that is supporting better business and personal decisions.

Built to bring IoT solutions to retailers, Star Cloud Services turns point-of-sale (POS) receipt printers already being used in the store into cloud-connected devices. Retailers interested in better understanding who their customers are and what they want use Star Cloud Services to transform shopping receipts into digital transaction data to better engage, activate and retain shoppers.

“We are honored to have Star Cloud Services receive such a prestigious award, especially considering the caliber of all the other nominees,” said Star Cloud Services’ VP of Sales and Marketing, David Salisbury. “In the age of the ‘one handed shopper’ retailers are turning to IoT solutions to better understand their customers. Winning this award continues to validate our approach to helping retailers stay competitive.”

“It is my pleasure to recognize Star Cloud Services with an IoT Excellence Award for its excellence in innovation,” said Carl Ford, CEO & Community Developer, Crossfire Media. “As a leader in this rapidly evolving industry, I look forward to seeing Star Cloud Services’ future successes.
