Setting up a kitchen printer


ROBOTILL allows you to set up department printers. An example of a department printer would be the kitchen printer.

You can have multiple department printers, for example:

  • Kitchen Printer
  • Bar Printer
  • Pizza Printer
  • etc.
In the Restaurant module, if the waiter clicks on 'Order' an order slip will be printed to each department. Each order slip for each department will only contain the items that needs to be prepared by that specific department. For example the food items will go to the kitchen department while the drink items will go to the bar department.

More items can be added to the sale and only the new items will be printed to the department printers to prevent duplication (a full order can be resubmitted if needed).

In the retail module department printers can also be used. Examples would be:
  • Storage Room - An order slip can be printed to the storage room to notify the storage room personnel to retrieve a specific item for a sale.
  • Take-out - If your retail store as a take-out section the retail module can also print orders to the kitchen in the same way the restaurant module does.

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:
