Many cannabis growth systems are being approved to integrate with state traceability systems Metrc. These Metrc integrations allows cannabis growers and retailers to electronically transmit inventory and growth or sales data into the state traceability system; eliminating the need for manual data entry and reducing the chance of compliance infractions.
Metrc integrations are extremely time-saving for cannabis retailers, here are the 3 kinds of different Metrc Integration.
Guardian CanabisTracking saves time with a lightning-fast track and upload process while automating compliance.It gives business owners and their employees the freedom to focus on the most important part of the business - their own business and customers.
Every state that has legalized recreational cannabis has strict compliance laws that cannabis growers and retailers have to abide by. Managed Compliance is truly the only way to stay compliant -- automatically. Only after we're compliant can we grow our business, delight our customers, streamline operations, and rest easy.
Lack of time and resources are restraints on any business, but marijuana growers and retailers have an pain point - compliance. At the end of every day, marijuana growers and retailers have to report info in their state's traceability system. This means logging into the system and uploading something like a .csv file. If there's an error, the retailer will have to go through their info for the day and make sure everything matches up. Unfortunately, this happens a lot when you manually handle compliance. In the worst-case scenario, they could lose their license. So, how do you avoid receiving penalties or losing your marijuana license? Guardian CanabisTracking ensures you're always in compliance and that you never have to enter your state's traceability site. This means no .csv uploads and no reconciling info at the end of every day.
A detailed look at METRC
Inventory : In METRC there are 2 types of tagged inventory: plants and packages. Plants are immature, vegetative, or flowering, and must first be entered as un-tagged immature plant batches. Packages are what are created from immature plants, harvest batches or other packages. Once you have a flowering plant, you can make a harvest batch out of it, which only needs a unique name that you give it, not a new tag. From there you cut it, weigh it, trim it, and package out of it. The harvest batch is uniquely identified by a name you give it, from which you can create a package and add a package tag before you transfer it.
How CannabisTracking works?
Tablets or cellphones are becoming the preferred hardware because of their durability, simplicity, and aesthetic appeal. Plus, if you plan on hiring (or have already hired) budtenders, they're most likely twenty-something year olds who are familiar with tablets. In fact, at least 50% of people between the ages of 18-29 own and are already familiar with tablets.
The necessities are: Mobile Devices, Barcode Scanner, RFID Reader, RFID Tags.
For modern Guardian systems, you can use your laptop and/or desktop as your "back office" to access more administrative information like reports and labors managements.
