Before you can launch with ROLLER, there are some key hardware audit tasks you must complete for your point-of-sale (POS) systems and card terminals to make sure that you can process payments successfully.
Audit your POS hardware
Whether you're purchasing new physical POS devices or planning on using existing POS devices with ROLLER, make sure that the POS hardware you want to use meets minimum hardware requirements.
- If you’re purchasing new hardware, share the minimum hardware requirements guide with your supplier so they can work with you to make sure the POS devices you order are compatible.
- If you’re planning on using existing hardware, refer to the guide Audit your existing POS systems to make sure the specifications of your existing POS computers or tablets meet minimum requirements to run ROLLER POS.
POS hardware FAQs
My POS computer or tablet specifications are below the minimum requirements, can I still use it?

Are iPads compatible with ROLLER?
No. This is because iPads do not run a compatible Windows operating system. If your venue uses waivers, iPads can potentially be used as Waiver Kiosks.
Can we use ROLLER without the internet? What happens if my venue experiences frequent internet dropouts?
No. ROLLER is cloud-based and requires the internet to work. Clients who have frequent internet dropouts should purchase a backup 3G/4G wifi dongle in case of emergency.
Can I set up a cafe POS station to print dockets to my kitchen or coffee area?
Yes. See Set up production docket printing in ROLLER for more information.
