Expo Milano 2015 will be open for 184 days from May 1 to October 31, 2015 in Milano, Italy under the theme "Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life". Over 140 countries and international institutions will participate in Expo 2015, expecting to receive more than 20,000 visitors.
Japan Pavilion in the Expo will be jointly open among the following institutions in Japan: Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF) / Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) both as chief-coordinator; Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism as vice-coordinator; Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO) as an associate. The pavilion will include a Japanese restaurant and a food court for visitors to experience the excellence of Japanese food and culture. GLORY's CI System will be used to increase the efficiency and strictness of cash handling operation in the food court.
GLORY's CI system, which is used in overseas retail stores such as supermarkets, consists of the following three devices:
1)CI-10: Compact Cash Recycling System that allows users to pay and receive their change
2)CI-100: Cash Recycling System used for the settlement of daily sales and preparation of
cash used for change at the back office.
3)CI-SERVER: Cash Management Software System for CI-10 and CI-100.
The ticket vending machine specially designed for the Japan Pavilion at the Expo, which incorporates CI-10, allows for an unmanned operation at the food court. The banknotes received from ticket sales will be stored in a so-called "interface cassette"※1 to go directly into CI-100, without the need for the operator to withdraw the banknotes from the cassette. The cash used for change withdrawn from the interface cassette from the CI-100 can also go directly into the CI-10.
The CI System designed for Expo 2015 can also handle Japanese banknotes in addition to Euros, and is also available for payment by credit card.
While we hope our CI System will increase the efficiency and accuracy of the cash handling operation in the food court at the Japan Pavilion, we also aim to find potential needs in the market.
*1:Interface cassette is used for banknotes only, and designed for using multiple types of GLORY's cash handling machines.
