Tracing Inventory Discrepancies

  It is the job of point of sale software to keep track of your inventory so that you know how much stock you have at all times. But what happens when the actual stock on hand, or the quantity that you think should be there, is different to what your POS system says? With earlier versions of ROBOTILL you had to look at several reports to figure out how the system came to the quantity it says should be there.  The reports included: Stock take report Stock receiving Product sales Discarded stock Returned stock You then also had to keep in mind that if you use compound items that the sale of one product can affect the quantity of other products. ROBOTILL now made it easy with a new 'Stock On Hand Trace' report. It will allow you to look at a specific product to see how the system got to the current stock on hand quantity.  The report is available from version 9.02.00 that can be downloaded from ROBOTILL .

Working with multiple branches

  ROBOTILL just made it easier to work with multiple branches. The ROBOTILL Branch Module has been replaced by our new head office functionality that can be enabled by toggling a switch and entering a key - no other set up required! What Changed? Our ROBOTILL Branch Module was a bit of a mission to set up. It used Google Drive and each branch needed a Google Drive account. You had to install Google Backup and Sync, the Branch Module and Branch Updater. All that is now gone. The new head office support is built into ROBOTILL Back Office - nothing extra to install. It makes use of our own ROBOTILL Head Office Cloud Server.  Cost? If you want to enable Head Office Support to work with multiple branches you will need to purchase an additional licence - only one licence per organization to manage all your branches - the same price as a licence for one till! Have a look at our amazingly low prices! If you already have a ROBOTILL Branch Module licence, we will convert it into a ROBOTILL Hea
