You’ve heard about Playbox and see the word “POP” often but don’t know exactly what it is yet? This article is here to enlighten you.

“POP” is an abbreviation for the Playbox Online Platform. The POP is an ecosystem that brings together different components such as the client portal (which will be useful in your case), the administrator portal (allowing us to add content to the game catalog), the tablet (allowing you to launch your games on your Playbox), the cloud and the service behind it allowing us to link all the components together.

With the purchase of a Playbox unit, you get access to the POP and more precisely to the customer portal and tablet application.

This article will deal with the customer portal, if you want to know more about the features of the tablet you can go to the following article “What exactly is the POP (Part 2 – Tablet)”.

The client portal

In this platform you can find different information about your Playbox units, consult your data and download game licenses.

Dashboard

The dashboard is your homepage. You can see some key performance indicators such as the number of rounds played, the number of players, the number of different games played and the most played game. These key performance indicators can be analyzed over a day, a week, a month, a year or over a period of time that you have selected.

The analysis can be done for one Playbox or all at the same time (if you have several Playbox units).  You can also filter to have a more in-depth analysis for a specific game or a specific unit.  

A complete report can be downloaded with the raw data to be able to draw observations if you wish.

My library

My library is the place where you can find all the games that you have installed on each individual unit.

The status tells you whether the game is ready to be started for the first time, active or inactive. Depending on the business model you select, your license may be valid for life. If it is not, you will be given an expiration date indicating when your license ends, with the option to “auto-renew” where you will receive an email telling you that your game is about to expire and is in your cart for the next purchase.

The “My units” section is where you will find all your Playbox units with all the necessary information about the physical unit and updates.
