Why You Need a Cannabis POS

by Kyana MinerOctober 27, 2016

Congratulations! You passed inspection. You're licensed. And you're ready to open the doors of your cannabis shop.

One of the most important decisions you will make in your cannabis business is what POS or Point of Sale system to use. You see, your point of sale system is the backbone of your business. It enables you to conduct your daily sales, and houses customer data and inventory. So you'll want to invest some time in making sure you choose the right one for your business.

Here are a few things you should look for in a POS system:

1. Industry specific system
You don't need just any POS system. You need a cannabis POS system. Cannabis is a unique industry. There's nothing like it. Our product is fragile and our compliance requirements are intense. With a Marijuana POS, you can ensure you're well positioned to grow your business. From tracking your inventory to adhering to unique state standards, a cannabis POS makes your daily data entry easier and business processes seamless. Specific needs for cannabis are built right into the software. You'll also be able to use integrated hardware like barcode printers, barcode scanners, receipt printers, which all help the process move faster and prevent margin of error.

2. Lots and Lots of Data
In cannabis, we need complete visibility into our products, clients, and sales. Genetic POS systems just do not have the capabilities to record and store the information we need. This could leave you wasting time filling out spreadsheets and manually recording information daily. Who has time for this? Choose a marijuana POS that helps you maintain state compliance and provides you with comprehensive data on your products and customers.

3. Client relationships
The most important part of your success will be how you nurture customer relationships. Imagine completing product sales for your customers and having a comprehensive history of their purchasing patterns. A cannabis POS also enhances your marketing efforts and helps you manage
customer loyalty programs. This keeps things easy for your budtenders and leaves your customers happy and coming back.
As you grow your business, your needs will change. Take the time to choose a good cannabis POS that can grow with you and provide the level of expertise and service you deserve.
