ICU – Intelligent Identification from ITL offers three functions; age verification to automate to control access to age restricted goods and services, facial recognition to accurately verify and identify individuals and face covering detection to reject or allow safe entry into premises.

Dr Andrew O’Brien, ICU Product Manager announced, “We have been continually improving and adapting ICU since it was launched in 2019. Our latest version includes several new features all designed to bring additional benefits to customers.  One of the key upgrades is the introduction of the non-intrusive spoof detection which can be used to prevent various fraudulent presentation attacks using videos or photographs via mobile phones and even stolen selfies which have recently been reported for sale on the internet for biometric spoof purposes.  The great thing is no specialised cameras are required for our spoof detection; it can be easily integrated with a standard camera to create an intelligent identifier. Rather than depending on limited information from just one image, ICU has the added benefit of using a series of images which give a more accurate and stable result for both age verification and facial recognition. The multi-layered spoof detection approach takes places in the background without affecting user experience and gives an extra level of intelligence which greatly enhances the performance of the product.”

This edge solution from ITL gives customers an immediate response as both age verification and facial recognition system processes are performed locally providing a more reliable output and faster response.  The device only requires an internet connection for set up and updates so it can be operated in areas without permanent internet. ITL have also included face covering detection as an extra feature which comes as standard. Ideal for those organisations where face coverings are mandatory.

Christian Czeskleba, ICU Business Development Manager for ITL commented, “This upgraded version of ICU also boasts more memory which allows for a larger database of faces to be stored locally. It delivers a fast output ensuring seamless, quick and secure customer transactions. We are also exploring new developments to enable further demographic data to be identified.”

Revolutionising cash payments with CashGenic

CashGenic, the cash automation solution from Innovative Technology, was launched in May 2020 as an affordable solution for those customers wanting to pay by cash safely and hygienically and to enable businesses to adhere to social distancing measures. The solution is a compact, all-in-one counter-top device ensuring easy customer access, with pay-in and pay-out managed by staff via a mobile tablet device with no software integration required.

Commenting on the first UK CashGenic success story, Andy Bullock, Senior Business Development Manager said, “Our first installation was completed in partnership with our UK supplier CC Dynamic (branded as £XCHEKKA) and installed by Maggi Electronics at a local fish and chip shop, The Top Chippy in Manchester, North West England. The owners are delighted with the results as it has removed the need for staff to manage cash, allowing them to use their time more efficiency. Helping them to follow social distancing advice is another positive effect.” Chris Woodall, Managing Director of CC Dynamic said, “The Top Chippy are really pleased with the unit especially as staff do not need to keep changing gloves or washing hands when taking cash. They are also seeing an uptake in cash takings which is great news! We are now an approved strategic supplier for the National Federation of Fish Friers, so will be collaborating with them to introduce £XCHEKKAinto more outlets up and down the country.”

In the first Spanish install toy shop staff are saving 30 minutes a day counting cash by using Cashgenic.

Antonio Rodriguez, Business Development Manager for ITL Spain said, “Our first Spanish install was at EurekaKids in Barcelona. The toy shop is utilising CashGenic to eliminate the need for staff to handle cash and was installed at the beginning of July.   The shop is finding a number of benefits, but the key advantage is the significant reduction in time counting cash, saving them around half an hour a day. Also, they have seen a big reduction in the number of times they have to go to the bank for change per week.”

Mireia Cairó,manager & owner of the toy shop commented, “Not only is CashGenic being well received by our customers who have accepted the new machine very quickly, it is also benefiting our employees who are happy to spend less time ensuring an accurate cash balance at the end of each day or when there is a changeover of staff.”

CashGenic is also being utilised in butchers in Germany, with the first install having started at Peter Raabe in Pinneberg.

Thorsten Labusch, VP of Sales & Business Development in Germany commented, “In a recent customer survey conducted bythe butchery Peter Raabewe have seen that customers like to pay with cash and want to pay with cash.They found that 78% of customers pay with cash and more than half thought that separating the goods and money handling made sense from a hygiene point of view.  They are pleased with customer feedback with 86% finding CashGenic easy to use.”

Peter Raabesaid: “As well as the hygienic benefits CashGenic can bring we can really see the added value because it releases the staff from money counting so they can use the time more productively serving customers.”

ITL are working with organisations across many vertical sectors throughout the whole of Europe showing how CashGenic can protect staff, customers and payments. Suitable for many applications including convenience stores, bakeries, butchers, pharmacies, petrol stations. Their partners offer full solutions and lease options.
