Setting up Cocktails in your Restaurant POS System


Setting up most items for the Restaurant module of ROBOTILL is quick and easy. Some items like cocktails is a bit more tricky. You need to set it up correctly to accurately keep track of how much stock you have left.

For this example, we will set up a Springbokkie (a popular  cocktail shooter in South Africa)

As you will receive Cape Velvet as a 750ml bottle and you would like to sell it as a bottle or break it up into smaller units you can use for cocktails, you set the Cape Velvet bottle up as a normal stock item.

You then create another stock item and call it 'Cape Velvet 30ml shots'.

After you created the 30ml shot item, add it as sub items to the Cape Velvet 750 ml bottle item.


As you can get 25 units from a 750ml bottle, change the qty to 25 and remember to Update the item.

The bottle is now set up correctly and can be sold as a bottle or as 30ml shots. The 'stock on hand' will be updated correctly.

Now do the same for the other ingredient for a Springbokkie, the peppermint liqueur. After you have set up the bottles, you can do the cocktail shooter.

You create the 'Springbokkie' as a compound item and add the units used to create the cocktail as sub items.


The cocktail will use one unit of Cape Velvet 30ml and one unit of Zappa 30ml. When you add both as sub items, all your stock counts will be updated correctly when you sell a cocktail.

Below are the stock items you had to set up for the Springbokkie cocktail:

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.
