Compound Stock Level Fix

ROBOTILL released an urgent fix for their Point of Sale system. Version 3.24.4 is available for download.
The urgent fix was for compound stock levels that where not calculated when selling compound items. A compound item is a stock item that consist of one or more sub items. For example a 6 pack of cokes is a compound item. It can be sold as a unit (6 pack) or the cokes (sub items) can be sold separately.
Follow these instructions to upgrade to the new version.

If you were using compound items you also need to do the following step once to fix any problems that where created with the previous version:

Open Manager, from the Tools Menu select Database Tools and then ‘Recalculate Compound Stock Levels’.



Other changes included in the new version:

  • A fix was done in the Export Manager (used to export data to scale software and other programs).
  • In the Restaurant Module, users sometimes accidently double clicked a button causing the item to be added twice. A new rule was added to ignore a button click if the same button was clicked less than 300 milliseconds apart. The user will be warned and asked to check the quantity for the specific item.

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.
