What’s new in Greenline – purchase orders, barcode scanning and imports

Bulk cannabis product imports

Purchase orders – barcode scanning

The purchase ordering process is something that can take a very long time to fill out, especially in the province of Alberta where inspectors want stores to track via lots. We’ve received numerous requests to be able to scan products straight into purchase orders.

Now, when you have a non-complete purchase order, you will see a button called “Click to scan” next to the product addition input. Once you click it, there will be a popup that shows the last scanned barcode.

When you connect a 2D barcode scanner and start scanning, the products will automatically be inputted into your list. Even better, if you are tracking via lot numbers, the lots will automatically be inputted into the system for you! This can save upwards of half an hour for lot-tracked purchase orders!

Greenline is always looking for ways to speed up the purchase ordering process, so stay tuned for more updates!

BC product catalog updates

The BC wholesale cannabis store has added the ability to export product catalog information. In collaboration with our BC clients, we have expanded our BC product catalog dataset to include barcodes in addition to SKUs, something that wasn’t readily available before.

You can check out our BC product catalog by clicking “Import from BC LDB” when adding a product.

Inventory audits – bulk product imports

Stores have let us know that they wanted to save time in their inventory auditing process, in particular, when they are adding their list of products to count. Some challenges in the past were:

  • You have too many products that are inactive/irrelevant
  • You want to add products by category and/or vendor
  • You only want to count products that have sold in the past X days

To alleviate those challenges, we added the audit bulk product importing feature.

When adding products to count, you can now filter your products down by multiple categories, multiple vendors, active dates, and whether you only want on-stock products or not!

Initial observations indicate that frequently counting stores can save anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes per inventory audit, giving your team more time to focus on what matters.

Purchase order reports

To give store owners a sense of how much capital is going into their supply, we’ve built a series of purchase order reports.

WooCommerce product auto-sync

For WooCommerce users, it can take a lot of time to sync your new products on a periodic basis. In the WooCommerce API settings page, there is a new setting called “Sync all products”. Once enabled, every product creation and update will sync both product and inventory data to your website.
