Explanation:
Of the sugestions so far, I like the 'proves its worth' the best, but not all that much... The difficulty for me is that 'convince' is normally used transitively in English, and bearing in mind that this is a bit of marketing mumbo-jumbo (no offence intended), it seems worthwhile to try something else. Perhaps ' its highly developed, internationally proven techlology offers a multitude of impressive advantages'?

Yes, I wasn't convinced by "convince" in this case. Your marketing mumbo jumbo sounds much better!

the worth of this . . . technology is proved by its many advantages


Explanation:
just another option - i wasn't such a fan of 'convinces', 'multitude' was fine though.

so i just re-arranged the sentence, putting in 'proves its worth' for 'überzeugen'

... impresses with its array of advantages.


Explanation:
I agree with the statement that "convince" is normally used transitively. However, I think it is possible to substitute "impress" for "convince" and thus remain closer to the original construction without sounding awkward. "Impress" as in "influence favourably".
