This article gives the process for integrating RAI with DRS 6.8 only. Stores with more current versions of DRS should follow the instructions in Integrate DRS with ResaleAI.
ResaleAI integrates with the Winmark DRS point of sale system. This integration is necessary for the RAI Buy process, for the automatic nightly email, for RAI reports and journal entries and more. ResaleAI connects to DRS with a software app called ResaleAI for DRS. ResaleAI for DRS must be running on the POS at all times.
In order to install ResaleAI for DRS you will need to be at a POS in your store. You will also need the username and password for your Owner account (usually based on the owner's first initial and last name).
Install ResaleAI for DRS Step-By-Step
- Log into a POS with your Owner account.
- Open a browser and go to http://resaleai.com/install
- If you have DRS 6.8 or below, click the link Download ResaleAI 1.16.
- Pop up windows will appear during the process asking if you want to download and install. Click Yes each time. Windows often takes this opportunity to download and install necessary updates so it may look like you are downloading and installing twice. Just wait. It shouldn't take long.
- When the installation is complete, a small AI icon will appear in Windows system tray at the bottom right of the screen. (see screen shot below).
- If you want to leave this POS logged in with the Windows Owner account all the time, every day, your are done! If you want to keep the Windows Store account for this POS logged in all the time, everyday, then log off Windows. Log back in with the Windows Store account and repeat steps 1 through 4.
Important information about ResaleAI Sync:
- ResaleAI Sync must be running in the background all of the time on at least one POS. We recommend running on at least two POS for redundancy. It is perfectly ok to run it on all POS.
- One reason you might want to run ResaleAI Sync on every POS is that it includes a web browser that your staff can use to access ResaleAI without having Chrome installed on that POS. The ResaleAI Sync Browser can only open one window, and that is for ResaleAI. So the Browser may not serve all of your needs. To open the RAI Browser, click on the AI icon and choose Open ResaleAI.
