nnovative Technology (ITL) has partnered with several suppliers in the UK to distribute their latest product aimed at making cash payments safer and more hygienic.
CashGenic was launched during the height of the COVID pandemic as a solution for those customers wanting to pay by cash safely during a time when coins and banknotes were being portrayed as high risk in terms of transmission.
Tony Morrison, ITL Group Sales Director, commented: “Whilst the World Health Organisation and other institutions found no evidence to confirm that COVID-19 can be transmitted through coins or banknotes, many retailers were strongly advising other forms of payment at the start of the crisis. We responded quickly as it is important for us to ensure that we give our customers payment choice. CashGenic technology makes cash transactions safer and more hygienic, eliminating the need for staff to handle cash while enabling social distancing during cash transactions. In addition to offering more hygienic cash payments, staff no longer need to count cash as the machine automatically does this, therefore saving time and generating greater efficiencies for the business. Another key benefit of CashGenic is that it also helps organisations eliminate shrinkage and accounting errors as cash handling is automated.”
“Following its launch back in May, we are pleased to announce that we have already teamed up with CC Dynamic, Maggi Electronics and Tag Retail to supply our Hygienic Cash Automation Kit to the UK. The technology has been developed by us and the complete system solution can now be supplied by CC Dynamic branded as £XCHEKKA and CashConnect from Tag Retail. CC Dynamic are working with Maggi Electronics, our UK Trading Partner, who will manage the installations,” Morrison added.
“Our first installation was completed in partnership with CC Dynamic at a local fish and chip shop, The Top Chippy in Manchester. The owners are delighted with the results as it has removed the need for staff to manage cash and is allowing them to follow social distancing advice. We have also installed CashGenic in more food take away establishments and cash and carry wholesalers in the North West of England," he continued. "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. It makes cash transactions safer in a single affordable kit, has a small footprint and is easy to set up with no software integration."
Concluding, Morrison said: “It is important that we give consumers choice and allow them to pay by cash safely, especially in these COVID times. This new development will allow customers to have that choice. We are delighted with the take up so far in the North West of England and look forward to many more installations both in the UK and Europe over the coming months.”
