Where did the POS license that does not expire go?

ROBOTILL used to have a Point of Sale License that did not expire. The license was more expensive than the yearly license that is currently available, but it was a once off payment.

The license was linked to a specific computer (hardware). So if you replaced your computer, you had to purchase another license (these conditions where clearly stated on the ROBOTILL website). On average computers gets replaced every 5 - 7 years, so it was still a much better deal than a yearly license.

ROBOTILL however decided to discontinue the 'once-off' license for the following reasons:
  • Although the conditions above where clearly stated on our purchase page, some customers where still unhappy if they needed to purchase another license when replacing a computer. 
  • If the computer was stolen or you wanted to replace the computer after a couple of months, then it would have been better if you purchased the yearly license instead. 
  • ROBOTILL offers FREE support and FREE upgrades. When you have a look at our Point of Sale Software Blog, you will notice that we are continually busy improving ROBOTILL and bringing out new versions all the time. For us to be able to do this, we need to have a sustainable business.

Remember that ROBOTILL also offer a 2 year license at a reduced price.
