Custom buttons in POS Retail


The ROBOTILL Retail Point of Sale Module allows you to add custom touch screen buttons. These buttons can be accessed by pressing the 'More' button in the Retail Module. The buttons can be shortcuts to POS functions like 'Convert a sale to a quote' or shortcuts to products that are frequently used but don't have barcodes (for example a plastic carry bag).


There are 4 types of functions (buttons) that can be added:

  1. Shortcut to a POS Function like 'Open Drawer'.
  2. Shortcut to a Product. 
  3. Shortcut to a Product Category.
  4. External programs can be called with various parameters so that ROBOTILL can interact with other 3rd party software or custom add-on's. 

If a Product Category button is added and pressed in the retail module, a product selection screen for that category will be opened.


The cashier will be able to add multiple items to the sale without needing to scan the items. Normally you would add a category of products that are often purchased but don't have barcodes that can be scanned.

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.
