Cashiers sharing a cash drawer


One of the most important features of a Point of Sale System is the ability to tell if there are cash missing and who is responsible. This is done by linking a cashier to a specific cash drawer (the money in the till). But what do you do if your shop does not have a dedicated cashier per till and your employees share a till point and cash drawer?

ROBOTILL allows you to work with any number of cashiers during a shift(s). Each cashier however is linked to a specific cash drawer. This is the only way an employee can be held responsible for the money in the till. All the transactions done is linked to a cash drawer - and to the cashier linked to that drawer.

So what do you do when you want to allow multiple cashiers to share one cash drawer?

This set up is not recommended as you will obviously not be able to tell who was responsible if there is cash short during cash up. If however you trust your employees and you want to work like this, then you can do the following:

ROBOTILL allows you to link a salesperson to a sale (apart from the cashier). There is also a setting in ROBOTILL where you can force the cashier to choose a salesperson for each sale. You can then create a generic cashier that you use to log in at the beginning of the shift and then each cashier selects himself/herself as the salesperson for every sale they do.

The salesperson report will then become you cashier report.

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.
