Crane Connectivity Solutions
We want to revolutionize your relationship with technology.
Crane Connectivity Solutions is an entrepreneurial joint venture between Crane Payment Innovations’ vending connectivity team and Crane Merchandising Systems’ Streamware team. By joining forces, CCS is able to combine the robust capabilities of Crane’s existing portfolios with the agility of a tech startup. The result is a comprehensive technology platform that extends beyond vending and an unprecedented focus on the connectivity solutions that will transform our customers’ businesses.
What is Connectivity?
Connectivity is the power to bring devices to life; it is the force behind the Internet of Things. CCS helps businesses integrate with the IoT and enhance their profitability with three simple steps:
Integrate sensory hardware into machines.
Connect hardware to networks to communicate machine data.
Use data to inform decision making, enhance business processes, and take action.
Simplify your Solutions
We believe that technology should make life easier. That’s why we design solutions that remove the barriers to implementation. And that’s why we’re with you every step of the way as you automate your processes and create a platform for growth, profitability and sustainability in a machine-connected environment.

Digital advertising not only engages consumers, but can increase same store sales by 23% above cashless alone, which helps offset the cost of the connection by paying you to advertise products already being sold in the machine.
