Moscow will host Vend Expo’s 14th International Vending Technologies and Self-Service Systems Exhibition on 25-27 March at the Expocentre. Innovative Technology will demo their range of vending products designed specifically for this market.

Georgiy Frolov, Business Development Manager commented, “Vend Expo is an important event in the ITL calendar as it gives us an ideal platform for us to network with our customers in the region and get a real feel for the needs of this developing marketplace going forward. This new era of self-service is fast moving, technology-led and presents exciting opportunities for the future.”

Georgiy continued, “This year we will focus on highlighting the NV9 Spectral note validator which boasts fast note to note processing and can be mounted vertically making it ideal for vending applications. The NV9 Spectral is a more technologically advanced version of the well-established NV9 with the added benefit of Spectral Technology. State of the art sensors ensure the full note is scanned and verified along with stained note detection technology which guarantees the rejection of stolen banknotes.”

ITL will also show how their age verification device (ICU) can prevent access to age restricted goods sold in vending machines.  ICU automatically checks age with no need for manual intervention and access is either approved or rejected, with changeable age limit settings. It’s fast and gives a 96% accuracy rate when identifying under 18’s.

Georgiy concluded, “The BV50, a popular validator with Russian customers, will also be available on the stand for visitors to demo. This space saving bill validator fits easily into the standard vending plate. It has the option of up or down stacking and four cash box capacities making it ideal for vending machine applications. Come and see the ITL team on stand A302 to find out how our solutions can create efficiencies and improve cash validation security for your vending fleet.”

Rebecca continued, “KMA Membership opportunities include networking with kiosk manufacturers and software providers as well as access to; member resources such as market research and trends, regulatory guidelines as published by the government and technology solutions such as AI and biometrics. Most importantly, together with other members, we will support an industry-led association which promotes the industry on an objective basis.”

Concluding Rebecca commented, “Our retail, kiosk and self-service offering is continually expanding, and we have developed many new products with our Spectral Technology designed specifically for this market.  Our core business is all about automating transactions in the most business efficient and cost-effective way. Our suite of highly secure cash validation, recycling and smart safe products offer numerous advantages such as, fast bulk note processing speeds, multi-denomination recycling and reduction in overall operation costs. We are particularly excited about our new ICU Age Verification and Facial Recognition device which can helps users manage the sale of age restricted goods to ensure compliance, plus intelligent AI algorithms can identify faces to control access.  ICU does not require pre-registration or human intervention and quickly and accurately predicts age and identifies faces so is ideal for automated self-service and kiosk markets.
