Did you know business Internet and telephone are not the same as home services? There are many more options for speed, bandwidth, connection type, shared services, equipment, and more.
Once you have established services at your location, it will be important to make sure you have a firewall, router, and wireless with appropriate capabilities for a business along with computer, phone, and tech options.
Cannabis point-of-sale (POS) systems are crucial to the industry. Not only will the right POS system integrate with track and trace systems, but it can also provide valuable business intelligence. Cannakins can help integrate your POS with industry established leaders so you can view, sort, and slice your business analytics to make real-time, data-driven decisions. Our partners will help make sense of the data for you as well, let our technology do the work!
Adding value to your business is what Cannakins is all about. We can also provide your business with retail networks adding real-time customer data as patrons visit your location side-by-side with product sales data. Be able to see guest activity and shopper profiles. See detailed reports on mobile devices, web traffic, and popular smartphone applications, such as price comparison apps! Track users’ locations in retail environments. Use shopper sign-on events to trigger loyalty rewards, send promotional messages, and even alert staff to VIP customer presence.
Before cannabis makes it to a retail or other outlet, it must be grown of course! Agriculture technology brings several benefits and competitive advantages to be utilized in the grow space. Cannakins can assist with rural internet services and physical security systems to protect your grow. We have experience in rural wireless options that can solve many hassles of being “off the grid” or being too remote for traditional service methods.
Technology is great and all but what happens after choosing your initial solutions? Don’t worry, Cannakins and our partners won’t disappear after you get up and running. We want to facilitate your business growth and security for the long term.
Security patching for all devices including firewall, router, wireless, office computers, cannabis software, and business software must happen.
Device monitoring to make sure all essential equipment is up and running becomes a major focus. This is the IT operations phase where tuning and tweaking along with continued security diligence is addressed.
Cannakins works with companies during mergers and acquisitions so you have someone familiar with corporate business in your corner.
Do you see an opportunity to work with your peers as partners in a B2B arrangement? Cannakins also handles non-disclosure agreement (NDA) negotiations with other businesses so you can share your ideas freely. Partnering with other companies on ideas is an excellent way to grow your business and share the load with trusted partners.
Business planning, growth, and scaling is a key to success. Cannakins will help build your business strategy and develop/document the processes and procedures your business needs to maintain consistent performance. Standard operating procedures (SOPs) for your POS, track and trace, business computers, and other technology is included with our technology solutions as well.
Staffing can be quite the thorn in a business owner’s side. Our partnerships with recruiting services focused in the cannabis markets will help you find the right staff for your needs. But filling office seats and getting budtenders behind the counter is only the first step in a staffing model. Have you as a business owner or supervisor given thought to employee training/development, performance reviews, when to give raises and how much, and promotions? Cannakins has experience staffing many different business models and will assist you in selecting the right candidates for your business goals.
