Crane Payment Innovations (CPI) Releases Video Footage Of Third Annual Technology Panel

Malvern, Pennsylvania, May 8, 2014- Crane Payment Innovations has released the recorded video footage of an EMV centered Technology Panel held during the 2014 NAMA OneShow. In partnership with Crane Merchandising Systems, CPI covered a burgeoning topic for the vending space in an engaging question and answer session between expert panelists and an audience of vending operators.

During the fifty minute discussion, cashless experts from CPI and Crane Merchandising Systems covered:

  • A definition of EMV and what its adoption brings to Vending
  • Transition dates for the United States and current global deployments
  • Clarification of the ‘liability shift’ and what it means to operators
  • Facts operators should consider when making cashless investment decisions
  • Where to find EMV solutions today

“CPI is proud of the work the MEI team already accomplished globally in the EMV space,” said CPI Cashless Product Manager Patrick Richards.  “As a unified company, we will continue to expand our reach in this market. To date, we have over 20,000 devices processing EMV transactions, which uniquely positions CPI as a lead educator in vending for the United States transition. For this reason we chose EMV as the topic for our 2014 Technology Panel.” 

The potential costs associated with EMV, risk assessment criteria for operators, and the components of the ecosystem were also covered during the Technology Panel.
