POS Cash-Up Screen Improved

ROBOTILL Version 2.8 was released and is ready for download.

The POS Cash-UP screen has been improved (click on the image below to enlarge it).

The Cash-Up Break Down can now also be printed on the Till Printer. The layout of the print out can be designed in Manager in the Print Layout Section.

The ‘More’ screen that contain your custom functions, shortcuts to stock items and other programs has been improved. Click on the image below to enlarge it.

The screen now uses buttons instead of a list box. This makes it easier for touch screens.

Other changes include:
  • Stock levels can now go into negative. This has been requested by customers and would be needed if you didn’t have time yet to import the new stock into the system.
  • A bug was fixed in the Account payments and the password is now hidden as some shops let their customers type the password instead of the cashiers.
ROBOTILL can be downloaded from

Note for existing customers

When upgrading to a new version please do the following:
  1. Do a backup of our database (From ROBOTILL Manager click on Tools > Database Backup and Restore > Backup)
  2. From your Control Panel, select uninstall programs and uninstall ROBOTILL (This will not uninstall the database server).
  3. Install the new version. No need to restore the database, all your data should still be there. The backup was just as a precaution.

Workshop and Job Cards

ROBOTILL now has a new Workshop module. The Workshop module is ideal for shops that does repairs and various other kinds of 'jobs'. 'Jobs' are booked in by the Retail Point of Sale Module. The workshop can then work on multiple open jobs with the new Workshop Module and add items like labour, parts, etc. to the various jobs. Once a job is marked as complete, the job can be invoiced by the cashier (Retail Module).

The Workshop Module can run on the same computer as the till (Retail Module), the back office computer (ROBOTILL Manager) or on a separate dedicated computer in the workshop.

The good news: It's FREE! You require at least one registered POS Point to use the workshop module, but you don't pay extra for the workshop modules and you can use as many as you need.

Other new enhancements included in Version 5.8:

Workshop module was added as a separate module and added to the ROBOTILL program group (icon on your desktop and available from All Apps > ROBOTIL…

Restaurant Bill Split

It is easy to split bills in the Restaurant Software of ROBOTILL. The waiter/cashier can split a bill (sale) at a restaurant table into several bills (sales). The split can be done at any time - at the end of the sale when the customers want to pay - or even in the middle of service when more items will still be ordered.

To split a bill, the waiter selects the table in the Restaurant module of ROBOTILL and then selects 'Sale Options' > 'Split Bill'.

The waiter can then choose the items that should be moved to a separate bill. This process can be repeated multiple times if a bill needs to be split into several smaller bills.

For more information about the split of bills, see the ROBOTILL Online Help:

You can also download the Free Edition of ROBOTILL from the ROBOTILL Website.
Note that the bill split feature is not available in the free edition.

ROBOTILL Licensing System Upgraded

ROBOTILL upgraded its Point of Sale Software Licensing System. Customers of the Free POS Software Edition and new customers will not be affected. Existing customers will need to register again.

For this reason it is suggested that customers of the Full Edition with version number 5.80.04 or earlier, upgrade and email the new registration codes directly after close of business to allow the ROBOTILL Support team enough time to generate new keys for them.

There where two main reasons for the licensing upgrade:
Unlike the old licensing system, the new licensing system will not require new keys after a major Windows upgrade or a computer name change.Due to the fact that ROBOTILL is becoming a very popular Point of Sale System, it has become the target of hackers and crackers.  To see how the new ROBOTILL Registration works, see our online help:
