Successful debut for Innovative Technology at Paris Retail Week

Innovative Technology (ITL) reported a successful show at Paris Retail Week that took place last week over three days in the French capital.  ITL, leading cash handling and biometrics solutions provider, showcased their latest innovations to delegates who gathered following several delays due to the pandemic.  

Thorsten Labusch, VP of Sales & Business Development said, “This was the first time ITL have been involved in the Paris exhibition and we are pleased we decided to participate. It provided the long-awaited opportunity to meet with new and existing customers allowing us to demo our retail and kiosk offerings to show how they can bring real business efficiencies. The retail sector is ever-changing, and technology-led so this event offered an important platform to network and obtain customer opinion to ensure we are providing the right solutions that the sector requires. We received positive feedback on our ICU biometrics range, especially the age verification and face covering detection functions, plus CashGenic – to enable hygienic cash payments, as well as classic OEM business potentials for our NV200 Spectral cash handling range.”

Stephan Rosseneu, dedicated Business Development Manager for the French region, said, “This was my first exhibition for ITL after joining the company only a few months back, so this was a great way to introduce myself to our customers and partners. We had a steady flow of people over the three days many showing a keen interest in our ICU biometrics solution. ICU Pro performs world leading accurate age verification & facial recognition-based functions to control access to entry points and premises. The more compact ICU Lite is used at machine level to ensure retailers prevent underage customers accessing age restricted goods, with no internet connection necessary and no reoccurring cost. Retail and kiosk delegates were particularly excited to see the live view – enabling them to visualise the technology in action. ICU successfully being able to detect face coverings was also a great advantage for many retailers as masks are still compulsory in many settings in the region.”

Concluding Stephan commented, “We had a productive time collaborating with our new Partner in France – IPM, and together we made plans to work with them to distribute our retail offerings, including CashGenic - hygienic cash automation, to French customers. This affordable solution enables customers wanting to pay by cash to do so safely and hygienically. The pay-in and pay-out is easily managed by staff via a mobile tablet device.  It was a hit on the ITL stand and we look forward to working with IPM over the coming months to provide this solution to end customers ensuring payment choice and helping businesses save time, money, and resources.”
