Sept. 26, 2013, Concord, ON – Crane Payment Solutions released a new software upgrade for their currenza SMV Bill Validator in preparation for the new Canadian $5 and $10 polymer bills.

“As part of our standard practice, we have been working directly with the Bank of Canada to develop software updates which will be available in advance of the new bills. The early release of the new software upgrade will provide operators the necessary time to update their field base of SMV bill validators well before the release of the new bills,” states David McLaughlin, vending product manager for the Currenza, in a media statement.

Upgrading the SMV bill validator is designed to be quick and inexpensive. First purchase a BlueChip SIM card with the number of downloads you wish to pay for, insert the BlueChip SIM card into the validator and cycle power. In 10 seconds, the validator is updated and ready to take the new bills.
