ROBOTILL Version 8.02 Released

Version 8.02 of the ROBOTILL Point of Sale Software system is available for download. All upgrades are free including for the users using the Free POS System.

What's new in Version 8.02:
  • The Bulk Import from Excel (or other spreadsheet programs) have been improved. More fields were added and the export is now adding text delimiters when commas are used as part of the description.
  • Product Sales Report was improved. The report can now be filtered by Top Sellers (by quantity) and Top Sellers (by value).  Additional filters and sort options were also added.
  • More fields were added to the Stock Receiving report. The additional fields are only available in the CSV export due to the space limitation in the main report.
  • You can now delete Suppliers, Departments and Categories. The delete operation will not affect the history.
  • An 'Aisle-Bin' field was added to the product set up. This is useful if a customer asks a cashier where a specific product is. The cashier can do a Product Look up that will display information about the product including where the product is located within the store.
  • The 'Automatically print orders if a waiter forgot' setting only worked when selecting another table. In version 8.02 it will also print the orders when a waiter logs off and forgot to submit the order.
  • The customer balance is now also visible for viewing before an account payment is done (if the task security allows the user to access the information).
  • Minor quality fixes and enhancements.
We would like to thank all our customers for their feedback and suggestions. Together we are making ROBOTILL the best!

Thank you!

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…

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).

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…
