Record numbers for ITL at EuroCIS retail show in Düsseldorf

Innovative Technology (ITL) reported a successful EuroCIS in Düsseldorflast week, where the organisers announced record visitor numbers. EuroCIS provides an exclusive hotspot for Retail Technology in Europe, attracting both exhibitors and industry professionals from the retail sector.

Thorsten Labusch, VP of Sales & Business Development for ITL said, “This year’s show was without a doubt our busiest EuroCIS ever, with a crowded booth especially the first two days.  The booth was split equally between cash and biometrics, and the self-checkout (SCO) demo showing our note, coin and biometrics solutions integrated and working together, was a real hit with the visitors.”

Thorsten continued, “Age verification is now clearly on the retailer’s agenda after talking about this technology for a number of years. At the show self-checkout manufacturers were actively asking to trial and implement our age check solutions to provide age verification as standard for their customers. The most popular solution on the booth was ICU Lite which can be easily integrated with self-service checkouts to automate age checks for retailers selling age-restricted goods.  Seeing this fully connected with our partner’s POS system, retailers could clearly see how this could benefit their business and how easy it is to install. MyCheckr offers the same functionality but comes complete with a screen and camera for manned checkouts to help staff with the age check process.   With no fee per age check and no monthly subscriptions, plus all processing done locally with no internet required, our age verification technology is affordable and available for all.”

Innovative Technology have two main divisions - traditional cash handling equipment to automate cash payments worldwide,  and their biometric technology range for age verification and facial recognition.

Thorsten reported, “On the cash side, our latest multi-note recycler, the NV4000 was the key focal point on the booth. Using this with the SMART Coin System (SCS) we can now offer retailers with high volume transactions faster customer throughput with fewer refills for both notes and coins. We also showed the new coin elevator module for the SCS in Germany for the first time. This minimises the gap between coin entry and exit points, improving accessibility and the overall customer experience.”

Thorsten concluded, “It was great to see our products displayed on so many of our customer and partner booths at the show this year too.  The sales team look forward to following up on the high volume of leads we achieved to bring new customers on board, and supply both cash handling and biometrics technology solutions to fit their business.”
