NB: we used screenshots from a 13“ notebook (1280 x 800)

The basic hardware requirements to run Cashier's application are the same as for running a web browser currently released in the market (Google Chrome, Opera, Mozilla, MS Edge and so on).

The application can run on any desktop or mobile computer (e.g. tablet, smartphone, notebook, laptop) as long as it has a stable internet connection and a web browser. Aardvark Betting System is a client-server application that runs on a web browser and is not a traditional software, which is required to be downloaded and installed.

However, we highly recommend using our application in a freeware web browser Google Chrome. Our updates are released first for Chrome users and our application works stable in this web browser.

Last, an account for the cashier's application is required. Cashier account with its credentials should be provided by a shop manager or SBI Support team.

Aardvark's Support team is part of Aardvark Technologies Ltd. working on 24/7 operational basis. The support team can be informed about errors or wanted the user interface updates through Skype™, account: SBI_support

On some occasions, our Support team may require to remotely connect to the Cashier's computer to assist with a reported issue, missing feature or training request and for that, the Support team uses Teamviewer application.

Aardvark Cashier's application processes financial data with a continuous client-server update. To ensure all data is securely transferred between the betting system components, a constant network connection must be established. If the network connection is disrupted or completely lost, the transfers between client-server are stopped until the internet connection is re-established.

After the connection is lost, the Cashier must immediately report this to the shop manager or any other personnel who is responsible for network connectivity. A cashier will not be able to carry out the functions the Cashier is responsible for (e.g. print and payout betting slips) until the network is re-established.

Cashier's application in Aardvark integrates all required features for the Cashier to carry out functions the Cashier is responsible for. This wiki page consists of descriptive articles about each user interface (UI) element as well as how-to instructions for other services and functionality of Aardvarks Cashier's application.

Aardvark was revised to ensure that all the activity done through the application is fast and smooth. This includes proper functionality regarding printing, paying out, revoking (canceling) Slips and so on.

Features, such as Last bet and reuse bets were added. Float operations functionality is provided with the ability to use Float PINs for the Shop managers or any other personnel. The app can be used in Full-screen mode so the workflow won't be distracted by other features accessible on the computer. Customer screen has been improved to show all information for of the betting slip to the customer as well as extra information provided by the HQ.

Cashier’s application user interface is designed to adapt its user interface based on the type of device being used e.g. desktop or mobile computer (tablet, laptop or notebook). The app is optimized for mouse and keyboard use.

Aardvark Cashier’s application has three core interface elements which are interconnected to make cashier’s work smooth and fast.

The article will cover each user interface element separately.

Cashier's app menu bar contains two drop-down menus, tabs with information and quick access buttons. Each graphical element can be accessed by moving the mouse cursor and clicking on them once.

This menu consists of all accessible elements to the Cashier, profile, shift list, settings, printer, help and full screen. After starting Cashier's shift, the main-menu will also contain all Aardvark products (games) list. Depending on the Cashier's style of work, this main-menu can be used as a quick-access menu to quickly swap between the games of Aardvark.

Calculator is a feature designed to assist Cashier when placing, paying out or revoking Slips. The Calculator displays the information about all the money being paid in and then paid out. If money is paid in - then it adds up to the number presented in the calculator, after money is paid out the number is then reduced accordingly.

A Cashier can use this feature per each different customer whenever they are placing and/or winning more than once to handle all the calculations easier.

All errors (e.g. exceeding maximum stake or exceeding maximum win limit) are presented to the Player in the Customer screen as well as all bets enter by the cashier. Also, an extra information window written by an Administrator can display extra text for the Player, e.g. rules of the Jackpot (Promotion) participation.

If the printer is offline please ask for assistance from the Shop manager since the Shop manager's responsibility is to ensure all printers are working.

However, the cashier can execute some changes in the Printer's application:

  • Rescanning printer button is used whenever printer is displayed as inactive (OFF)

  1. Help link accessed through the user interface leads the Cashier to the wiki page with information about the system. This is a primary help for the Cashier. If the Cashier still needs help after looking for information on the wiki page, then the cashier should go to level two of assistance and contact shop manager.
  2. Shop manager should assist the cashier with all the problems that are occurring in the cashier's work place during the shift. If Shop manager cannot assist the cashier, then the Shop manager should go to level three of assistance and contact Aardvark support.

Full-screen is a feature which allows Cashier to work in full-screen mode. This feature helps Cashier to work comfortably without the disturbance from other external computer sources.

Using F5 keyboard button to refresh a page will automatically sign out the Cashier and the Cashier will need to re-sign in again. Use Reload button for a convenient refresh of the application page.

Logout button immediately sings out the user from the System. A user may use the sign out button in the menu bar nearby the user icon, but on smaller screens, the logout button hides and the only way to sign out from the system is to use the logout URL from the drop-down list.
