Cash Up and End Shift

A Cash Up can be done by the cashier from the POS Application (Retail and Restaurant) or by the Manager from ROBOTILL Manager. If a Cash Up is done by the cashier in the POS application, it still needs to be Finalized (confirmed) by the manager in the Manager application.

When you do a Cash Up, you count the actual cash in the drawer and declare it. You also close the Cash Drawer (shift). If you want cashiers to do the Cash Up but you don't want them to count the cash at the till, you can let them log out at the till, take their money bag and log into the POS application in the back office to do the Cash Up.

To do a Cash Up from the POS application, click on 'General Functions' > 'Cash Up and Close Drawer (End Shift)'.

Till Cash Up
  1. The cashier can quickly count cash by simply counting each money domination (not the amount, but the number). The amount will automatically be counted. Depending on your country, you might need to change your monetary units. This can be done in Manager > Main Setup > General Configuration > 'Monetary Units'.
  2. The amount cash required and the amount short can be hidden if required (Manager > Setup > System Configuration > 'Cash Drawers and Shifts').
  3. The description in the card payment system (and check) is optional. It will be included in the printed report but will not be saved in the system.
  4. The check payment section can be changed to another payment system or check can be renamed (depending on your country, the spelling might be incorrect) in Manager > Setup > System Configuration > General Settings.

Finalizing a Drawer

A drawer that was closed and counted by a cashier still needs to be confirmed (finalized) by the supervisor / manager. This can optionally be done in one step from ROBOTILL Manager. To finalize a drawer go to ROBOTILL Manager > Cash Drawers.

Cash Drawers

From ROBOTILL Manager the manager can choose to accept the counted totals and Finalize the drawer or he can recount the money, card payments and checks using the Cash Up screen.

Finalize Drawer

The variances (money short or in excess) will be calculated from the returned cash (counted during Finalize) and not the declared cash (counted during 'Close Drawer').
