In this post, we’ll discuss some of the critical considerations involved in comparing cannabis seed-to-sale software and systems in order to help cannabis growers, processors, distributors, and retailers choose the perfect ERP for their operation.
In today’s world of data technology, seed-to-sale software has become the nervous system of the vast majority of business operations — especially in the heavily regulated cannabis space.
Seed-to-sale software falls under a category of systems known as a cannabis ERP. ERP stands for enterprise resource management. Essentially these systems provide the capability of tracking all aspects of a business including supply chains, production, human resources, customer service, accounting, and, of course, in the case of cannabis operations, seed-to-sale tracking and regulatory compliance.
Choosing the right ERP is one of the most important decisions a cannabis entrepreneur will ever make over the lifetime of their company.
Let’s take a look at some of the most critical requirements of a cannabis-focused ERP, seed-to-sale tracking software, and cannabis regulatory compliance solutions.
Here are some of the important questions for which you should be looking for answers as you undertake your search for the ideal seed-to-sale system for your cannabis-touching operation.
1. Who is involved in the development of the seed-to-sale system, and what are their past experiences are their qualifications?
Before you choose a seed-to-sale system you should become intimately familiar with the team that’s developing and supporting the system and not just your friendly sales rep.
Who is the mastermind behind the system? What experience do they have in developing ERP systems? What experience do they have in cannabis operations? What are their past successes/failures? Are there any security limitations that could potentially shut down your cannabis business? All these factors will give you a much better idea of who you’re dealing with. Ask your sales rep for as much information as they are willing to provide on the individuals involved in the development of the solution.
