Adaptable dispensary inventory management is critical for evolving cannabis stores. Everyone wants to expand and grow their brand. Some dispensaries want national distribution via a sleek online store, others want brick and mortar locations in every major city center. Excellent management software will scale with dispensaries and relieve growing pains. Never have business growth be confined by technology.
How can dispensaries tell if a POS solution will grow with their business?
- Unlimited locations. Yep, that’s right. A POS provider should be able to handle as many locations as you can.
- Visibility and inventory management throughout every location with custom reporting locks. Inventory and transfers of a product should be manageable throughout every location, at any location. This means that there should be two tiers of inventory management available to you:
1. At the company level, where the entirety of your business operations can be viewed on a single screen for executive access.
2. At the individual location level, where store managers can see the data for their location and no other location.
Many POS companies will operate on a growth first model. This means that they focus on client acquisition and often cannot provide high-quality service consistently to their existing customers. Good software providers should always give excellent one-on-one customer service.
Look for live chat widgets integrated into the POS and website. These can provide instant help with your problems. One of the most important factors in quality service is how quickly dispensaries get a response from support staff. Nobody wants to wait around for their POS company to answer a question when they could be doing more productive things.
