Important changes in ROBOTILL

Existing customers of the popular Point of Sale System ROBOTILL should take note of the following two important changes in Version 3.41:

Change in how Cash Drawers work in ROBOTILL:


If a cash drawer (shift) has not been opened for a cashier and the cashier logs in, the system will now automatically open a cash drawer (shift) for that user and allocate a default float. This feature can be disabled in Manager if required. The default float can also be specified in Manager. 

When a cashier does a Cash Up, the drawer will not be closed (shift will be ended). The cash drawer can alternatively be closed from Manager. 

In Manager, a Cash Drawer now needs to be Finalized. A Cash Drawer is Finalized to confirm that the cash counted by the cashier is the actual cash returned. 

Change how 'Quantity Change' work in ROBOTILL:

To change quantity of an item, the item now first needs to be scanned (or selected) before changing the quantity. With previous versions it was needed to first change the quantity and then scan the item. 

It is also now possible to change quantities of any item in the list (previously scanned items in of the same sale).

Quantity change has been added to the Task Security in ROBOTILL so that it is possible to decide what security level is required to do a quantity change.

What else is new in version 3.41:
  • Cash Drop added. Cash Drop and Cash Withdrawn added to drawer report.
  • Problem when printing long till slips was fixed.
  • Quantity change via short cut keys and Quantity Change Screen added to Restaurant Module. 
  • Measured items (scale items and items measured in time or other unit) has been improved.
  • Drawer report of POS applications (Restaurant and Retail) was improved and a Drawer Report was added to Manager (back office application).

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:
