- A Front Systems POS with connection to the internet, and also user access, and a role that allows your user to print price labels.
The printing agent must be set up on the store's network and internet connection. The print agent comes in a form of a Raspberry Pi box that needs to be connected to a power socket and to the internet with a LAN connection/RJ-45 socket.
This printing agent receives commands from the Front Systems Portal (BackOffice) and sends the print signal to the designated printer. This means that wherever you are located, you can log in to the Portal and print out price labels from the printer that is connected to the print agent (given that the print agent show as active under Admin --> Print Agent in Portal).

The printers will get the same name that is registered by the manufacturer of the printer.
