Ready. Set. Upgrade: S4 version 9.0 is Here.

While you were out enjoying the holiday last week, CFM was putting the finishing touches on our latest work of magic. We’re very happy to announce that S4, our flagship core integration solution, has been updated to version 9.0 and is now available for installation.

For those not familiar with our innovative core integration software, S4 is our zero-footprint, enterprise-level solution that universally drives and manages all major cash automation machines. S4 gives you complete choice in hardware, full functionality and a real-time integration with your teller application and enables branch of the future initiatives like Universal Associates and open branch designs.

news4splashscreen-iqThis update is more than skin-deep—Version 9.0 of S4 is chocked full of productivity and interface enhancements and includes a major interface redesign. Here’s a list of the major changes:

Extreme Makeover: An Overhaul of All Screens and Dialog Boxes
The new, responsive interface covers every screen and all dialog boxes and will look great on any size computer monitor or mobile device. It’s also easier to use and more intuitive for front line staff.

IT Geek-Out Alert: Enhancements for CFM S4 administrators
Version 9.0 gives IT staff and administrators new tools and enhancements, including a network troubleshooting page and a built-in network test tool. These new tools will allow IT/admin users to proactively test the quality of the network connection, without impacting end-user performance or functionality. We’ve also added enhanced logging for CDR tests performed from the S4 admin portal to allow for more accurate troubleshooting of communication issues.

Better Than Ever: Improved Device Drivers and Certification of Additional Cash Recyclers and Dispensers
S4 version 9.0 improves existing hardware drivers and adds two new cash recyclers and a new dispenser to the list of certified hardware—the ARCA CM18 Solo, the CIMA AST7016 as well as the 5 cassette Diebold ECD. Improvements to existing drivers include support for compression with the Glory Vertera 6g recycler and refinement of the Glory RBU11 driver’s communications.

Shorter, non-techie version: it works seamlessly with even more cash recyclers and dispensers.
