Innovation doesn’t just happen. It takes time, investment, patience, and collaboration with the best talent. We put our principles into practice each year by investing more than seven percent of annual revenue in research and development initiatives that transform the industries we serve.

We promise to continually challenge the status-quo and pursue new ways to solve payment transactions across multiple markets in all regions of the globe.



A global player in Gaming

In Gaming, CPI’s Soft Count solution has raised expectations for payment systems by generating cash management efficiencies between the slot floor and the casino soft count room. Since 2008, it’s been installed in more than 150,000 games worldwide (including more than 100,000 in the US).  It is now rare when a new casino opens without this technology.
