Why Software is Important in the Cannabis Industry

It’s amazing that an all-natural, organic plant is leading the way for so many people to get the relief they need from illness, while also providing a living for those cultivating and dispensing it.
We talk to cultivation facilities all the time who want to emphasize what a monumental task it is to use quality ingredients and growing methods to produce the best medicine they can.  There is no doubt that some of these people are the very best “farmers” this nation has, and they are choosing to work in this industry so that they can produce quality natural remedies.

As great as it would be to keep the process simple - from cultivation to the patient - it just isn’t. There are complicated accounting mechanism that need to be addressed. What ingredients were bought, how many plants are in certain stages of growth, how much inventory a store is carrying, how many  products have been sold, how much revenue has been accrued over a day,  compliance and diversion reports, and on and on it goes.

These processes require a professional software solution. There is simply no way to manually enter all of these problems into a notebook and calculate it by hand. Regardless of state oversight, there is still the matter of general business rules. To run any business or non-profit, you must account for revenue and costs. You must do so in a way that IRS, Department of Revenue, and other entities approve. This is where software really comes in.

Using a professional POS and Inventory management system will not only help you account for all of your products, revenue, and costs which are the subject of general audits; it will also save you time, make your location more efficient, and provide you insight into where costs can be trimmed and revenue can be raised.

Even better, a software platform (like MJ Freeway) gives you the added benefit of integrated modules - which can help publicize your location, provide testing results, streamline your menus process, better serve your patients with Loyalty programs, and much more.
