Discovering Seed to Sale SoftwareMay 18, 2017 • By Danielle
Want to streamline your business operations and ensure stress-free legal compliance?
Seed to Sale software describes cannabis tracking and compliance platforms that help a cannabis business owner or government organization track their operations from “seed to sale.”
This type of software is often referred to as an enterprise resource planning (ERP) software, which describes general business operation software that centralizes a business’s operations by syncing real-time data between all components of a business, including inventory management, eCommerce website, delivery management, point of sale, human resources, finances, accounting, and many more. If an ERP software is cloud-based instead of on-premise, it will be able to offer real-time centralized data that can be viewed on-the-go on your smart devices.
