Product Import - Small Market Example

One of our users wanted to know how they can import products using Excel from various suppliers for a market. It is small local suppliers that do not have proper product codes (PLU, SKU, barcodes, etc). They also want to allocate all the products of a supplier to a specific department in ROBOTILL. We have decided to give an example of how this can be done on our blog to also help other ROBOTILL users with a similar requirement.
Deciding on how to use unique product codes When you import products using the Bulk Product Import feature of ROBOTILL it is important to use unique product codes or barcodes. When importing products from various suppliers that don't have international unique product codes, you can do one of the following:
Allocate product codes yourself - this can work but will be time consuming.Ask the suppliers to allocate their own unique codes - the problem is that there might be suppliers that choose the same product code (by coincidence).You can use the option above …

POS Customer Loyalty Program

Loyalty programs are very popular these days. A good loyalty program will help you retain customers and increase sales. ROBOTILL now has a flexible, points-based loyalty program.



When a customer card is scanned/swiped and a customer has earned enough points the new reward button will become visible to the cashier.


The customer will be able to choose from a list of rewards or even have the option to convert the points to cash to help pay for the sale (the cash reward is optional and can be turned off).

The customer details and points earned can be printed on the receipt to encourage the customer to come back and spend more.

The loyalty program is very flexible and can be set up to work for your specific requirements. To see how to set up your loyalty program, see Loyalty Program in our online help.

The loyalty program is available in the POS Retail Module and the POS Restaurant module. It is not available in the Free Edition.
