Cash handling and biometric technology solutions provider, Innovative Technology (ITL), are pleased to announce their first Biometrics Trading Partner in the Netherlands. Moneytronic will focus on distributing ITL’s biometric range of products for age estimation and will provide a direct link to retailers in the region. Innovative Technology have several age estimation solutions that are ideal for retailers selling age-restricted goods such as alcohol, tobacco and vapes.

Established over 20 years ago, Moneytronic specialise in cash management solutions supplying coin and note counters, closed payment solutions and smart safes throughout the Netherlands and Belgium.   

Commenting on the partnership, Business Development Manager for the region, Stephan Rosseneu said, “I would like to welcome Moneytronic onboard as our first distribution partner for our full biometrics range. Traditionally a cash management company, Moneytronic have embraced technological advances in the industry and are keen to promote the benefits that biometric technology can bring to their retail customers to assist them with the age check process.  They will initially focus on two key biometric products, MyCheckr and MyCheckr Mini and will concentrate on selling direct to the retailer. With five trial sites already live in tobacco, liquor and convenience stores, we expect this to be a very successful partnership.”

MyCheckr is a standalone solution equipped with an inbuilt camera and screen that quickly detects a customer's age completely anonymously. The LED above the screen turns green if the customer passes the age check, and red if they appear underage - providing a useful aid to help servers ensure compliance and reduce any potential confrontation when challenging customers for ID. And for those who don't need a screen, MyCheckrMini offers the same functionality in a smaller device.

Jordi de Weerd, Managing Director for Moneytronic commented, “I am pleased to secure a Trading Partnership with ITL who are highly trusted and recognised in the industry. The Netherlands is phasing out sales of tobacco from supermarkets and petrol stations, so this will inevitably divert customers to tobacco agents. Tobacconists are expecting a sharp increase in foot traffic and will need a solution to help them check age without queues building up. MyCheckr and MyCheckr Mini are the ideal solutions and I am looking forward to working with ITL to distribute age check technology to our customers across the Netherlands.”
