ROBOTILL Version 5.4 Released

Version 5.40 of the ROBOTILL Point of Sale Software is now available and can be downloaded from the ROBOTILL Website (www.robotill.com).

The following is new in Version 5.40:
Sale Orders was added

The Lay-By (Lay Bye) section in ROBOTILL was improved to also cater for 'Sale Orders'. You can now use 'Lay-By / Sale Orders' for any sale that requires a deposit and one or more additional payments.


Examples that you can use this for would include:
  • Lay-By's (Lay Byes).
  • A sale that required a deposit before an item is ordered or manufactured.
  • To order an item for a customer with or without a deposit.
With the start of each sale contract (can be Lay-By or Sale Order), two slips are printed:
  1. Slip for the customer.
  2. Internal slip that can be attached to the goods (for lay-by) or given to the manufacturing / ordering department (for a Sale Order).
Both slips can be customized for any requirement. For more information on how to use Lay-bye and Order Slips see the help file

Custom Functions / Menu Improved

It was possible to add custom functions and give it the names you wanted, but you can now also give internal POS functions any name you want. This can be used to customize your menu even more.

An example would be with the new 'Lay-By / Sale Order' functions. If you will not be using Lay-By's, but you want to use Sale Orders as you manufacture custom orders, you could rename the buttons so that it makes more sense to your cashiers (see below).


Ingredients and Supplies used for Manufacturing

In the Restaurant POS module you could have hidden the 'ingredient's categories from the menu. The stock items would however still have popped up when you did a stock search. 
In version 5.4, these items are now completely hidden from both the Restaurant POS module and the Retail POS module.

Other Changes

Other changes include:
  • Quotations was improved - when converting a quote to a sale you can now search by Quote ID or customer account number.
  • Stock Sales Report was fixed (a blank page printed on every second page).
  • It is now possible to delete users.

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:

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…
