POS Software for Windows 10


ROBOTILL Version 4.2 is Windows 10 ready!

ROBOTILL is Point of Sale Software for Retail Shops and Restaurants that uses Microsoft SQL Server as the database engine. This makes the ROBOTILL system fast and robust even when there are multiple tills and back office computers connected to the same system. Even the free edition of ROBOTILL allows an unlimited number of tills and back office computers to be connected to the system.

Previously ROBOTILL was using SQL Server 2008 R2 that is not supported in Windows 10. Version 4.2 of ROBOTILL now use SQL Server 2014.

If this sounds all to technical for you, don't worry - ROBOTILL can install SQL Server for you - you can just sit back and relax. Even if you need to use multiple tills (POS Points) and back office computers, the ROBOTILL install wizard makes the installation easy.

ROBOTILL Version 4.2 can be downloaded from www.robotill.com (Click on Downloads).

Already have ROBOTILL installed with SQL Server 2008?

Before you upgrade to Windows 10, remember to do a backup of your ROBOTILL database. Although you cannot install SQL Server 2008 in Windows 10, it does continue to work after you upgraded to Windows 10. It is however a good idea to upgrade in any case.

To upgrade, simply download the SQL Server 2014 install file from the download page on the ROBOTILL Website or directly from the Microsoft website. You can then run the install file directly and just select the upgrade option. 

If you have any problems contact ROBOTILL support.
