MEXICO CITY, June 18, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — QPAGOS (QPAG: OTCQB), a leader in self-service electronic payment solutions, today announces that it has selected Crane Payment Innovations (CPI), the world-wide leader in providing cash payment solutions and a Crane Co. company, to integrate CPI’s cash management technology into QPAGOS kiosks to be deployed in its recently announced joint venture Innovative e-Payment Solutions, LLC.
Through this partnership, CPI becomes the technology of choice for QPAGOS’ initial 1,000 kiosks planned to be installed in California. CPI’s CashCode one™ is a universal banknote validator offered in a singular universal design regardless of the country, currency, mounting or protocol helping reduce logistic and inventory costs. This unit includes value-added product configurations and extensions such as sleep mode, a bulk note loader option and a 3,000-note cashbox, which is optimum for bill breaking machines.
“We have been working with Crane in Mexico for the last 4 years and selecting Crane for this critical component of our solution as we plan to expand our footprint into the United States should assure the highest level of reliability in our kiosks,” said Gaston Pereira, President and CEO of QPAGOS. “Our experience with Crane’s excellent customer acceptance rate, security against counterfeits, field-proven reliability, and built-in unique service support features give us great confidence in this selection.”
“We are very excited in partnering with QPAGOS in this important milestone as they seek to expand into the U.S.,” added Boris Guitline, CPI Director of Financial Services Americas. “We have been very impressed at QPAGOS’ evolution in the Mexican market, for which we have been their exclusive supplier of similar solutions and look forward to being the vendor of choice for their US expansion.”
