Crane Merchandising Systems is making it easier for vending operators to install cashless with the latest firmware update for the Navigator telemetry platform. Installation is now truly “plug and play” — no phone calls, no handhelds and no USB sticks required.
Upon power-up the Navigator will configure itself and be immediately ready to accept credit cards – driving an average same store sales increase of over 20%. Also included in this update are diagnostic tests that ensure the solution is working properly.
“The new firmware has already been pushed over the air to every Navigator device online in the field at no charge and is available for immediate use,” said a Crane spokesperson. “We designed the Navigator from the beginning to last. These capabilities are available in the first Navigator ever shipped in 2010 and the ones shipped yesterday — demonstrating the power of the Navigator platform. This is the key to being truly future-proofed.”
“The Navigator’s diagnostic capabilities will assure operators that their device is working correctly as soon as installation is completed without needing to carry a test card. We are focused on making it as easy as possible for vending operators to take advantage of the demonstrated benefits of cashless – most importantly same-store sales growth. We are also making it easy by offering a variety of pricing and financing options to help customers Get Connected.”
