Crane Payment Innovations (CPI), a Crane Co. company, is pleased to announce their participation at the Balkan Entertainment and Gaming Exhibition (BEGE) on 20 and 21 November in Sofia. CPI can be found at booth #N2.5 together with partner TransAct Technologies.

This year, CPI will demonstrate their cash and cashless portfolio during the show. As players demand greater flexibility and the gaming market evolves to meet the trend, CPI is positioned to offer solutions that go beyond traditional cash payment devices. With more than 500,000 live cashless connections in the field, CPI is seeking ways to deliver this value to gaming operators and share their insights on the future of payment technology with visitors.

“At CPI, we are committed to anticipating the needs of our customers, embracing new technologies, and designing the solutions that will shape the future of payment,” commented Anette Jauch, CPI sales director for EMEA Gaming. “Our mission is to remain at the forefront of innovation and help transform the industry with solutions and partnerships that deliver greater flexibility and profitability to our global customers. Our portfolio at the upcoming BEGE show will reflect this commitment.”

Among the products that will be showcased this year are the Ticket Purchasing Kiosk featuring CPI cashless technology – the eChoice card reader and the Alio all-in-one cashless payment device, the SC Advance banknote validator, the SCR Advance banknote recycler, and the Easitrax Connect software platform.

The newest addition to the CPI cashless portfolio, the Alio card reader enables all forms of electronic payment, including magnetic swipe, chip reading and NFC, as well as Apple Pay, Google Pay and Samsung Pay. Alio is built to last with a Gorilla® glass screen and tough housing, as well as high-resolution 3.5” and 4.3” touchscreen displays. The Alio device is supported by CPI Network services and the cloud-based Simplifi software platform to deliver a complete payment package to customers. Equipped with Alio is the Ticket Purchasing Kiosk which enables players to conveniently purchase a TITO ticket.

With more than three million units in the field worldwide, the SC Advance and SCR Advance offer low maintenance performance with one of the lowest jam rates in the industry. The SC Advance is the best-in-class banknote validator that offers access to the all-new Easitrax Connect platform.
