Innovative Technology reported a successful debut at INTERNORGA – the Leading Trade Fair for the Hospitality and Restaurant Industry, held in Hamburg last week.
Commenting on ITL’s first appearance at the exhibition, Thorsten Labusch, VP of Sales & Business Development said, “It was great to network and showcase our latest products to the hospitality industry which is relatively new to us. We spoke to many end users from hotels, restaurants, bakeries, and confectioneries and our cash handling and biometric age estimation solutions were both of particular interest.”
ITL’s CashGenic - hygienic cash automation solution - automates the counting and handling of coins and notes. It basically creates an automated cash register and works much like a self-service payment kiosk with payments managed by staff via a mobile tablet. 
Commenting on the solution, “With a small footprint and easy integration, it can be added to your pre-existing cash drawer and is ideal for retail and hospitality venues. We are currently working with several distribution suppliers in Germany who are using this technology to develop complete system solutions.”
Representatives from Innovative Technology’s biometrics division were also at the show to demo their range of products that enable automated age estimation. 
Thorsten continued, “Visitors to the booth were impressed with our age estimation solutions ideal for anyone selling age restricted goods such as alcohol. Businesses can choose either MyCheckr for a standalone solution complete with display screen or ICU Lite for integration with existing point-of-sale systems. Both provide accurate and unlimited age checks for a one-off fee – all completely anonymous. Our biometric solutions can also be used to display targeted digital advertisements and collect anonymous customer analytics to aid effective marketing to different consumer segments.”
Concluding Thorsten said, “INTERNORGA was a great opportunity to talk to businesses from several different industries that are new to us. The team learnt about the latest technologies utilised in this dynamic industry, and we look forward to extending our reach in the sector.”

Innovative Technology Ltd (ITL) reported a successful show at EuroShop 2023 which took place last week in Düsseldorf, Germany. The cash handling and biometrics solutions provider showcased some exciting new innovations set to transform the retail technology industry.  
Commenting post show, Thorsten Labusch, VP of Sales & Business Development for ITL said, “This was one of the busiest and most productive EuroShop exhibitions for some time and it was fantastic to see visitor numbers back to levels seen pre covid times. The booth this year was split in our two divisions with our cash handling and biometrics solutions having equal presence.  Not only was our booth packed with visitors demoing our latest products over the five day show, we were also delighted to see so many of our products on other exhibitor booths too within their machines.”
Christian Czeskleba, Senior Business Manager for ITL’s biometrics range commented, “A significant proportion of the ITL booth showcased our biometric solutions offering age estimation, targeted advertisements, consumer demographics analysis and secure access control.  ICU Lite was the standout product with many retailers interested in installing this compact device directly into self-checkout terminals or kiosks to perform age accurate age estimation to prevent the sale of age-restricted goods to those underage. This clever device can also be utilised for targeted advertisements personalising content for particular cohorts as well as for consumer demographic data analysis. Both functions appear to be attracting huge interest in the retail sector as an effective marketing technique driven by AI technology. MyCheckr also attracted much interest for manned checkout operations.  This stand-alone device gives an extra level of assurance for till operators checking age ID, as well as doubling up as a digital signage screen to display targeted adverts and collecting valuable, yet anonymous customer intelligence for the retailer.”
Thorsten continued, “On the cash side, the new NV4000 was the key focal point. We designed this high performance, large volume mixed note recycler specifically for the retailer to accelerate customer throughput and EuroShop visitors were particularly impressed with its large capacity, speed and automated float management. Our other note recycling solutions, such as the Spectral Payout, were also popular on the booth.”
Concluding Thorsten said, “Thank you to everyone who took the time to come and visit the ITL booth. The international sales team are busy following up with all the customers we spoke to at the show and we look forward to many successes stories as a result.”
