Our team recently returned from the National Retail Federation’s NRF 2022 Retail’s Big Show in New York City. This event is how we usually have started our year prior the pandemic and it sets an exciting tone for what’s to come. Although this year was smaller, the quality of attendees and knowledge was still at the level of what we expect from NRF. We are proud to be one of the 725 vendors that exhibited at NRF 2022.
After not interacting in person at exhibitions for nearly 2 years, it was good to hear from customers and learn about the new challenges they are facing. There was a sense of excitement among retailers and vendors about being back in person.
We showed our Touch-LiveSafe cash management solution at NRF for the first time. It offers the functionality of a recycler, with nearly 1/16th of the cost, maintenance, and physical space requirement. Retailers of all sizes were intrigued by the product because it was a new solution to meet their needs for security and accountability around cash at the point-of-sale.
As vendors at these events, we take on a new role in a post-pandemic market when it comes to selling to retailers. Their world has changed rapidly over the last two years. The most valuable thing we can do is listen to them and hear about not only their challenges, but their innovations. So many retailers have reinvented their processes out of necessity. It’s important for us to learn what they are doing and then see how we can better support our customers.
Our interactions with retailers also solidified our purpose of making sure retailers can accept cash with ease. We know that many individuals rely heavily on cash payments for things like groceries, medication, and essential services. Making sure all customers have the option to pay with cash is something we are passionate about, and we’re committed to helping retailers continue to accept cash despite the pushes from card companies to go cashless.
We look forward to exhibiting at more events in 2022. Up next is the Retail Technology Show in London at the end of April and EuroCIS in Düsseldorf, which was recently moved to the end of May.
