5 Reasons Your Dispensary Needs a Cannabis POS

Running a dispensary or vape shop without a modern cannabis POS is like trying to smoke marijuana without fire- you can give it a try but it won’t be anywhere near effective. Now that 23 states have legalized medical marijuana with Pennsylvania looking to become the 24th, more dispensaries and vape shops will be looking to set up shop, meaning competition for those that are currently in business will be tight. To set yourself above your competitors, you’ll need to use an easy-to-use yet modern cannabis POS like ours. Here are 5 reasons why:

1. Your Modern Cannabis POS Will Keep Your Inventory Organized

When your business becomes too popular (and trust me, it will), you’ll want to spend more time developing new products and interacting with customers rather than manually tabulating your sales and inventory. Your easy-to-use yet modern cannabis POS will count your stock automatically while allowing you to check inventory in real-time and receive instant reminders about your stock level.

2. Get CRM and Effective Loyalty Programs on Your Cannabis POS

When your store starts getting a lot of customers, you won’t be able to remember every single one of your customers. Having a modern cannabis POS will make that easy for you and will tell you which customers are buying which type of marijuana (or marijuana accessory) through which type of channel. You can even integrate all the information collected into an effective loyalty program right on your modern cannabis POS.

3. Sell Your Products Through Different Channels

Your modern cannabis POS will need to enable you to sell marijuana through different channels. But not all cannabis POS can do this so you have to look at solutions such as Bindo which will connect your store to online and mobile platforms. As more states continue to legalize marijuana and more dispensaries and vape shops begin to pop up, you can’t just attract the customers that walk by your store. You need to attract those who shop online and through mobile as well. A more-advanced modern cannabis POS should be able to do this for you.

4. A Modern Cannabis POS Should Be Able To Handle Multiple Stores

As marijuana usage becomes more and more popular, you’ll want your vape shop or dispensary to reach more customers through more locations- possibly meaning more store openings. Your modern cannabis POS should be able to handle this while also giving you the option of diversifying your product catalog.

5. Better Support with Your Cannabis POS

A legacy POS will not give you the customer support that you need in case your current cannabis POS breaks down. Your POS is the gateway to all your transactions, customer information, and inventory lists. Losing all of that will seriously damage the business of your dispensary or vape shop. Some modern cannabis POS companies will solely use rich forums as their “customer support.” That’s not enough. The modern cannabis POS that you’re looking for should provide you with 24 hour customer service, 7 days a week. That’s how we operate here at Bindo. Anything less just doesn’t cut it.
