ROBOTILL released new Restaurant Software Module

With version 3 of ROBOTILL, a new Restaurant Module was added that is ideal for Restaurants, Bars and Fast Food shops.


The Restaurant/Bar module can work with any number of tables and waiters. For a full list of features go to http://www.robotill.com and click on Features.

Other enhancements to the Retail module and the back office program (Manager) include the following:

The ‘More’ screen that opens up custom functions was improved. The custom function that allows you to select items from a specific category was improved.


This feature is useful if you want to incorporate a ‘Take-Away’ or other type menu in the Retail module instead of using the full Restaurant module. 

Some more enhancements that was done in the Retail Module and Manager (Back Office):
  • With certain tax percentages it was not possible to get to some specific price including amounts. This has now been fixed.
  • If more than one of the same item is scanned instead of increasing the quantity, the items was added to the till slip individually. In version 3 the Qty is increased instead.
  • Some regional settings that used a comma as a decimal delimiter caused problems. This is now fixed.
  • A problem that sometimes occurred when account payments was cancelled has been fixed. 
  • The reports where improved.
  • With stock take you can now count the sub items or the compound items. There is also a new Stock Count screen in Manager.
  • You can now do a price override with items where the quantity is greater than 1. 
  • Customer change is now displayed in the main screen and the ‘Continue’ button removed from the pay screen.
  • The label print screen has been improved to easier select items and quantities.
Please remember to do a backup before installing a new version.

  1. Hi

    I've downloaded the software and am really impressed! I just want to ask a quick question...Is it at all possible to hide the cash up totals from the cashier? The cashiers must still be able to do the count. The reason I ask is.. When they do the cash up they see exactly how much money they are suppose to have and then if they are over they pocket the money and if the are short the just put the difference into the till.

    Its a very tricky situation.

  2. Hi Heidi

    Not currently but we will add this feature to the next version of ROBOTILL. From Manager you will be able to specify if you want the cashiers to be able to see how much cash should be in the till.

    Thank you for the feedback/suggestion.

Upgrading to ROBOTILL Version 8

The ROBOTILL Version 8 release is a major release. If you are upgrading from ROBOTILL Version 7 (or earlier versions) to version 8 please take note of the following:

Normally you don't need new licence keys when upgrading, but we made some changes to our licencing system. You will need to follow the new registration instructions to get new keys (no need to pay again). We should email the new keys withing an hour or two (but allow for up to 8 hours). For this reason we suggest you do the upgrade after close of business so that you will have the new keys before you start working again.In version 8 you no longer log into the POS apps using a username and password. Usernames and passwords is used for ROBOTILL Manager and ROBOTILL Branch. For the POS Apps you now use a user PIN. With a new install the default pin is 12345. If you however upgraded from version 7 the PIN will be the user's card number. If card numbers were not used, then the user will have no PIN and you will first n…

If you get the 'Windows protected your PC' when downloading and installing ROBOTILL, click on the 'More Info' link.


In the next screen, make sure the Publisher is ROBOTILL (PTY) LTD and then click on 'Run anyway'.

Why you got this messageROBOTILL is registered with an international certification authority that have verified our business. They have issued ROBOTILL with a software certificate that helps protect our users as our software is signed with the certificate. 
Once a year (usually in November) we need to renew our certificate. That means we get a new certificate from the certificate authority and we sign the ROBOTILL applications with the new certificate.
The new certificate needs to build up a 'good reputation' with Microsoft SmartScreen before it will automatically bypass SmartScreen. This usually only takes a couple of days - but for some reason this year it is taking much longer. 
We are currently investigating why the SmartScreen trust is t…
