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 (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.

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:
