ROBOTILL V6 is here!



ROBOTILL Version 6 has arrived and is ready for download. The biggest change in Version 6 is that ROBOTILL now has 'Branch Support' that allows you to manage multiple branches or shops remotely over the Internet.

ROBOTILL Branch Manager
ROBOTILL Branch Module allows you to do the following:
  • Manage multiple shops using ROBOTILL Point of Sale Software over the Internet - no local network or VPN required between the shops or branches.
  • Receive reports from the branches remotely.
  • Update branches remotely with product setup, prices, print design and more.
  • Do stock transfers between branches or shops and view the progress of the transfers (dispatch, delivery and quantities).
Please note the following regarding the licensing of the Branch Manager:
  • The ROBOTILL POS System has free editions of ROBOTILL Manager, ROBOTILL Retail and ROBOTILL Restaurant modules but not of the ROBOTILL Branch Manager.
  • When you purchase  ROBOTILL POS License you get a the full edition of ROBOTILL Manager, ROBOTILL Retail and ROBOTILL Restaurant but not of the ROBOTILL Branch Manager. 
  • You need to purchase a separate license for the ROBOTILL Branch Manager.
  • The ROBOTILL Branch Manager is optional and you only need it if you are planning to manage multiple shops or branches from one location. 
  • You can still use any number of tills and back office computers in one shop without needing a ROBOTILL Branch Manager license. 
Other changes in Version 6:

ROBOTILL Manager was also improved. It has several smaller enhancements and improvements but the most noticeable is the main screen:

ROBOTILL Manager Version 6

The menu in ROBOTILL Manager was also 'cleaned up' and more logically grouped. All configuration settings are now done from one 'easy to navigate' Configuration screen. 

New Configuration Screen

With previous versions the retail and restaurant configurations where done separately and some users found it difficult to find the correct place to update a setting. With the new screen it is very easy to find the correct place to make a change. 

The new version can be downloaded from the ROBOTIL Website.

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.
