Connection to HubRise

The setup process for connecting PixelPoint Windows API to HubRise is typically performed by Slowey Systems, and is completely transparent to the user.

If you plan to integrate your PAR PixelPoint EPOS with Deliveroo, you need to check that your Deliveroo products are correctly mapped in your EPOS. To learn more about the steps required, see Integrating with Deliveroo.

Setup

To set up the PixelPoint Windows API integration, follow these steps.

  • Create a C:\HubRise folder at the root level of the store server.
  • Copy all the relevant files needed for the connection inside this folder, including a configuration file called HubRise.ini.
  • Remove any token that might be present in the configuration file.
  • Run the HubRise.exe program. This will populate the token in the configuration file and create the store in the Slowey database. Then, it will connect the server with HubRise and start fetching orders.

Sample Configuration File

The following code shows a sample configuration file. The parameters are grouped under different sections, with the relative name in square brackets. A complete description of each section is given below.
