Celebrating 20 Years of Innovation

Innovative Technology are celebrating 20 Years of Innovation within the automated cash handling sector this year. Founded in 1992 by David Bellis MBE, Innovative Technology Ltd (ITL) was the first company to manufacture low cost multi-currency validators, when it introduced the NV1 Smiley® to the market - making banknote validators affordable to the AWP market.

20 years on, the company’s philosophy of proving exceptional value validation products still remains as the Company Ethos today. Innovative Technology prides itself on providing exceptional value, intelligent validation products with an industry-leading acceptance
rate for multi-currency of typically 99.8%.

Later this year we will bring some exciting new products to the market. Currently in development these product will show that innovation is still the key part of our business. Innovative Technology – Intelligence in Validation
