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.

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…

POS Card Reader for Cashier and Waiter Login

ROBOTILL now supports a card reader for logging in users (cashiers, supervisors, waiters). If this option is selected, it will replace the default login where a user needs to select his name from a list and type a password to log in.

Other new features in version 3.31 of ROBOTILL include:

A refund can now be allocated to an account (previously only cash refunds were supported). The customer account will be updated and the customer statement will reflect the refund.New stock items can now be created during stock receiving.Tier prices can now be updated in the price maintenance screen and during stock receiving.Payment screen improved to speed up payments.

POS System with Cloud Database

ROBOTILL is a Point of Sale System that comes with a SQL Server database that can be installed as a stand-alone system (one computer) or on a local network with multiple computers (POS Points and Back Office computers). Now, with ROBOTILL Version 5.5, you can also connect to a database server in the cloud like Microsoft SQL Azure.

Advantages of using a database in the cloud:
You don't need to setup a local network to connect all your till points and back office computers.Distance between points is not an issue as you connect over the internet and not through a local network. You can manage and monitor your shop or restaurant from home (or any location).
Things to keep in mind (disadvantages): All your POS Points (tills) and back office computers will need an Internet connection.Your Internet connection will need to be fast and stable as you will not be able to work if the connection goes down. The performance (speed) of ROBOTILL can go down depending on your Internet connection spee…
