THE OBJECTIVES

The company in question was facing an uphill battle as their seed-to-sale software didn’t have the flexibility to give them a full view of their multifaceted business. Without full visibility of their customer, inventory and order data between technologies they were not able to complete many of the objectives that require a higher level of compliance or automation. Efficiency wasn’t optimal, and It was slowing down their growth as the company began to scale fast this year.

THE SOLUTIONS

The first task was to run a security and compliance audit to identify key issues and roadmap items. Next, we implemented various caching layers to reduce latency at checkout and reduce the burden on third party APIs. These projects gave the dispensary a fully compliant infrastructure that provided them a foundation to work on a host of new projects to push the business forward while remaining compliant.

WHAT WE´RE WORKING ON NOW

Streamlined order & fulfilment process

Expanding seed-to-sale printing methods for better ticketing and receipt methods. Allowing for more efficient back of house processes.

Automated in-store experience

Incorporating in-store ID scanning system with web app for fully automated compliant in-store experience and check out system.

Revolutionary Dynamic Delivery

The integration work and addition of real time inventory manifests mean we have laid the compliance groundwork for Dynamic Delivery. Think Ice Cream Truck vs Pizza Delivery.
