Automatic Daily Backups


You can now relax as ROBOTILL will do full database backups daily!

We all know how important backups are for your Retail Store or your Restaurant. There is a lot that can go wrong:

  • Hard Drive Failure
  • Theft or Fire
  • User error during a bulk operation like bulk stock import or updates.
If you don't have a backup of your Point of Sale System, you could loose valuable data (sales history and reports). You could also face a lot of downtime while you need to set up the system again. This will not only be products and prices but also the print layout of slips, users, employees, etc.

It always was possible to easily do a backup with ROBOTILL, but now with Version 5.1 you can enable automatic daily backups ... by simply checking one box.

The automatic backup feature is also available in the FREE Point of Sale Edition of ROBOTILL.
