First ITL Trading Partner confirmed to distribute age check solution to UK vaping industry

Innovative Technology (ITL) have named the Dyflin Group as the first trading partner responsible for distributing their MyCheckr age estimation device to the UK vaping industry.  Innovative Technology is one of the world's leading cash handling and biometrics companies and the first company in the world to receive independent GDPR certification from ACCS (The Age Check Certification Scheme) for their AI-powered age estimation solution – MyCheckr.

Founded in 2015, Dyflin Group, based in London, is a business consulting company that offers bespoke advisory services within the vaping sector.

Commenting on the partnership, John Vallis, Senior Business Development Manager (Biometrics) for ITL, “We are excited to work with Dyflin Group who will distribute our age estimation devices –MyCheckr and MyCheckr Mini direct to the rapidly expanding number of vape stores in the UK. Both products are retail-ready, and require no integration so customers can quickly get started with biometric assisted age checks achieving results immediately.”

MyCheckr is a standalone solution equipped with a camera and screen that quickly predicts a customer's age completely anonymously. The device gives staff an extra layer of security when checking age and asking for ID. The screen can also double up as a way for retailers to show targeted digital advertising, saving valuable retail space and creating a potential revenue making opportunity.  And for those who don't need a screen, MyCheckrMini offers the same functionality in a smaller device.

Commenting on the partnership, Michiel Carmel, Industry Consultant for the Dyflin Group said, “Supporting our commitment to the vaping industry and passion for innovation, we are proud to be partnering with Innovative Technology to bring this highly affordable age-check device to the attention of vape retailers. Youth access to vapes is a major concern across many sectors that sell such products and is a big challenge for the industry.  Distributing MyCheckr will assist all reputable vape stores and stakeholders as they strive to adhere to the regulations in place to prevent minors accessing vapes. MyCheckr also offers the opportunity to generate income from marketing 3rd party products on the device screen.”

Concluding, John said, “We are already seeing many success stories from customers including 888 Vapour, Kwik Vape, Irresistible Vapes to name a few. These early adopters are reporting MyCheckr as a useful, low priced tool which is proving effective in deterring young teenagers and children from purchase vaping products. We look forward to working with Dyflin and their customers in the vaping sector to proactively prevent underage sales in retail stores throughout the UK.”
