Stock Transfers Improved

ROBOTILL improved multiple branch support and stock transfers between branches. Version 7.05 of the ROBOTILL Point of Sale Software system was just released and is is available for download.

Branch updates (new products, prices, etc) and transfer instructions are now received automatically throughout the day (with previous versions it was only downloaded automatically once a day or when requested by the user).

In ROBOTILL Manager it is also now easy to see when new transfer instructions are received.

Data can also be received and reports can be uploaded to the head office without needing any user interaction at the branch. This is useful when there is only a cashier at the branch and no manager to log into ROBOTILL Manager.

Other enhancements in version 7.05.00:
  • New Stock Sales report added to the Branch Module at the head office.
  • Logging of branch transfers and updates improved to help solve problems faster.
  • New Branch Updater added that runs as a background process at the branch.
  • In the restaurant module we added a setting so that unsent orders will automatically be printed if a waiter forgets to submit the order.
  • A problem in the Cash Up report that sometimes printed 'ERROR' has been fixed.

Note to customers using the previous version of the Branch Module

If you were using the Branch Module before version 7.05, please take note that the new version will require an additional install at each branch. Transfers and updates will not work at the branches until all the branches are on the new version.

When upgrading from an older version of the Branch Module please take note of the following:
  1. All branches and the head office needs to run on the same version of ROBOTILL. Please follow these steps to upgrade to the latest version.
  2. The Branch Module that is installed at the head office is now part of a separate install file that can be downloaded from the ROBOTILL Download page. You need to install ROBOTILL (see 1 above) and then the Branch Module.
  3. At each branch, you also need to install the new Branch Updater that is also part of a separate install file. Follow these steps at each branch.
Please email ROBOTILL support if you have any problems.

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:

POS Themes and Button Colours
