Aloha Environment & Licensing Requirements


Updated

Audience:

Technical Teams, Engineers, & Product Teams.

Description: 

There are required Aloha POS versions and licensing requirements required to allow Olo to integrate to Aloha POS. This article lists and explains them and their associated terms.

Terms:

COM - Component-Object-Model (COM) interface, introduced by Microsoft in 1993 used to allow authorized third party companies to interface to a software application.

Aloha Connect - the NCR Branded use of COM that bridges the communication gap between Olo and Aloha POS.

External Interface Terminal (EIT) - Virtual POS Terminal that is configured within Aloha’s local store database and runs in the background on the server to allow order entry via Aloha Connect. 

Interface Server - Virtual Server that is used to launch iber on the Interface Terminal that is configured within Aloha’s local store database and runs in the background on the server.

EIT License: One EIT designated for each hardware device that is integrated (kiosk, mobile device, etc).

 

Versions

  • NCR has minimum Aloha POS versions that support communication for Olo thru the Aloha Connect. If you are running a lower version than the minimum requirement, please contact your NCR/Aloha reseller for upgrade information. These minimum versions are as follows:
    • 6.7.38.138
    • 12.3.25.14
    • 14.1 - any version
    • 15.1 - any version
  • For versions above 6.7.64+ and 12.3.31+, there is an NCR provided radacctl.lic file that must be manually copied into your bin directory on AlohaBOH. 

 

Licensing

  • Aloha Connect with at least one External Interface Terminal license must be enabled on your Aloha Security Key.
  • If running more than one External Interface, you are required by NCR to obtain a license for each.
    • Example: If Olo were to run in a store that also has another SDK API running (let’s call it LoyaltyProX for our example), then the site would be required to have 3 EIT’s if LoyaltyProX runs on the server + on one handheld terminal. This is how that would break down:
      • 1 EIT for Olo on the server
      • 1 EIT for LevelUp on the server
      • 1 EIT for LevelUp on the handheld
  • EIT's are specified in a line item on the Aloha Key Sheet as Interface Terminals: ___
