POS Product Cost

ROBOTILL Version 5.45 was released and is available for download.

Product Costs (Unit Cost - the cost to your company for manufacturing or purchasing) can now automatically be calculated when you are using compound items.


There are two different calculations:

1) Applying compound cost to sub items
Applying compound cost to sub items. If you receive stock as a compound item (example a box of 24 cans), then the cost for individual cans will be calculated and applied to the sub item (the can).

2) Applying sub item cost to a compound item
If you have a complex compound item like a breakfast that has multiple sub items (2 slices of toast, 2 eggs, etc), then the cost of the breakfast will automatically be calculated.

You can also choose to let ROBOTILL automatically adjust compound item cost prices if a sub item cost price changed. For example, if you have various items that uses a slice of cheese as a sub item, and the cost of a slice of cheese changes, then ROBOTILL will automatically recalculate all the items that uses a slice of cheese.

See Product Cost in the Online Help for more information.

This feature isalso available in the FREE Point of Sale Edition of ROBOTILL.

Other changes in version 5.45:
  • Barcodes of deleted stock items are now freed up and can be used again.
  • Minimum stock level fix (check used a '<=' check instead of a '<' check).
  • If a cashier logged into two different computers at the same time and voided a sale that was open on both computers it caused problems - this is now fixed.

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…
