WILLISTON, SC -- Crane Merchandising Systems, a Crane Co. company, has announced the commercial launch of Get Connected, a cashless vending program offering credit card processing fees of 5.4% per transaction. The program follows a field trial in which Crane partnered with a new payment-processing company.

Get Connected features no long-term contracts, low monthly fees with quantity discounts and no required hardware purchase. Funds are securely delivered to customers via daily deposits directly from the payment processor, without the need to pass through Crane.

Additionally, whether connecting through Crane's new Media vending machines or retrofitting existing machines (Crane or other), operators who choose Get Connected for cashless transactions will receive MDB alerts by email, as well as daily DEX reads that can be sent directly to any VDI-compliant vending management system.

Customers will also gain access to the company's new Streamware Connect online customer portal to review cash and cashless sales, and obtain deposit records. Additional functionality is already under development, according to Crane.

"Get Connected is a low-cost, simple and safe way for customers to increase their sales and operating efficiencies, while offering consumers the payment conveniences that modern technology affords," said CMS online solutions product manager Poch Ceballos.
