The key benefits of using an ERP in the Cannabis Industry

Regulatory compliance and product traceability

In the cannabis industry, regulatory compliance is crucial. ERP systems tailored to this sector incorporate robust functionalities to track and ensure compliance with the strict regulations governing the production, distribution, and sale of cannabis products. From managing licenses to product traceability, these systems provide a comprehensive solution to minimize the risks of non-compliance and regulatory sanctions.

Moreover, product traceability is essential to ensure the quality and safety of products throughout their lifecycle, from cultivation to final sale. ERPs offer complete traceability, enabling companies to meet regulatory requirements and maintain consumer trust by ensuring the quality and origin of products

Recent advances in skills management and barcode technology further enhance this approach. Skills management has been adjusted to align with METRC training, now incorporating specific Odoo actions for METRC alongside industry-specific training videos for the cannabis industry.

Regarding barcode technology, integration with QR codes now enables the generation of COA reports based on site-printed labels, while also providing the capability to store and generate GS128 labels for internal use within the cannabis industry.
