Again, we want to remind you that Cale WebTerminals needs upgrading to
CWT Software 4.0 by September 30, 2018.

After that, terminals with the wrong software will not be able to communicate
with WebOffice. This is a change already required by PCI and we need an approved system scanning during October which is not possible with the wrong software version. 
Please make sure to upgrade the remaining terminals (not that many left)
by September 30, 2018.



This information below has been posted in previous mailing.

CWT Software 4.0

The CWT software 4.0 release aims to meet PCI requirements. To be able to meet the PCI requirements on the CWO side, all communication must fulfil TLS 1.2.

  • Terminals running CE5 will not reach PCI/PA-DSS 3.2 because the lack of security patches from Microsoft, who has ended its support for CE5.
  • The standard UI B and E, are updated to follow standard UI A for 7” and 9” colour screen. This will help our customers easily make customer-friendly user interfaces.
  • The software will be the final release that contains support for the 2G Enfora modem. New functionality in the CWT will not support this 2G modem any longer.

For more information read the Release Notes on the Partner Area
or contact Global Support.

Kind Regards 
Global Support

City of Fort Worth Amends Agreement to Include Cale MAX Single/Dual Space Meters

The City of Fort Worth, TX, a long-time customer of Flowbird’s Parkeon brand products, has recently amended their service contract to include Flowbird’s Cale MAX Single/Dual Space Meter. This addition is the first dual contract of its kind, thanks to the recent merge of parking and transit leaders, Parkeon and Cale, allowing the new combined company to offer both product lines for customer convenience and ease.

Installation of 57 Flowbird Cale MAX Meters will begin in early July of this year. The installation comes with an additional 19 of Flowbird’s Parkeon Strada Kiosks. Both meter types will address the issue of Fort Worth’s recent expansion along the West 7th District, an entertainment and residential region, that hold both large and small areas for parking.

The City was looking for a single/dual space meter solution that also integrated with existing back office systems. The solution needed to be compatible with remote programming changes, including rate adjustments and download functionality across all units within the West 7th Urban Village Core. By adding the single-space MAX meters, the city is now in the process of reducing operation and maintenance process time. 

The Cale Max single and dual space meter is solar powered and comes with an extended battery life. It accepts coins, credit/debit cards and is compatible with mobile app payment.

The original Parkeon contract was amended to include Cale Max Single/Dual Space Meters on January 19th, 2018. Installation of the meters will be completed by September 15, 2018.

“The merger of Parkeon and Cale allowed the company to expand its product offerings, allowing clients to mix and match as needed,” said Benoit Reliquet, President of Flowbird North America.  “We appreciate this opportunity in Fort Worth to showcase our broader product range.”
