Please Note: ROBOTILL can work with any number of tills (POS Computers) and back office computers (ROBOTILL Manager) on a local network. Branch support and using ROBOTILL Branch Module is a more advanced feature and is optional. It is only needed if you want to manage multiple branches from one location.

Drive Head Offce Set-Up

ROBOTILL chose Google Drive for transferring branch data over the internet. The reason for this is that there are no additional costs involved to the customer and it is easy to set up. You can also use another cloud based file hosting system as long as it has the same features as Google Drive.

You will need a separate google account for the head office and for each branch (Note: All accounts are free).
Create a gmail account for the head office and each branch at www.gmail.com (You can use existing accounts).

Google Drive Head Office Set-Up

At the computer that you will use to manage the multiple branches (at the head office), log into your gmail account you will use for the head office and click on the Apps icon (top right) and select Drive. If the Google Drive app is not installed on the computer, there will be a message on your google drive page that will allow you to install it. Install the app.

After the google drive app installed, click on the Google Drive icon in your system tray.

Google Drive

Then click on the Google Drive Menu (see below).

From your Google Drive account in your browser, create a folder for each branch. If you are using Drive for other files you can create a 'Branches' folder and then create a sub folder for each branch.
