Seattle, WA, August 26, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- The Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) has approved WeedTraQR, industry-leading cannabis seed-to-sale tracking software, as a validated software provider for Oregon’s recreational marijuana program. The Seattle-based company has developed a platform that is compatible for integration with Oregon’s Cannabis Tracking System (CTS) to meet the inventory traceability needs of the state’s producer, processor, wholesaler, and research licensees. Operational for over two years in Washington with a rapidly expanding roster of clients, WeedTraQR lends proven expertise and hard-earned credibility to Oregon’s fledgling program.
WeedTraQR’s software will allow recreational cannabis producers, processors, and wholesalers to electronically transmit complete and accurate inventory and sales data into the state’s mandatory CTS, saving time and reducing the risk of error. All OLCC recreational marijuana licensees must participate in Oregon’s CTS; they can choose an approved third-party provider to integrate company sales and inventory data with the state’s system. One of only four providers validated for use by producers and processors, WeedTraQR pragmatically solves the inventory-tracking requirement in this early industry stage, turning traceability from burden to competitive advantage by supplying clients with data analytics and other operational resources. WeedTraQR also becomes the first ‘meta’ traceability software, reporting to the CTS in both Washington (BioTrackTHC) and Oregon (Metrc), making it an appealing option for companies with national aspirations and for those who currently license products in multiple states and want a consistent interface for all facilities.
Touted by Washington’s recreational industry as the easiest-to-use, most efficient and responsive inventory platform in the cannabis space, WeedTraQR will focus on producers and processors in Oregon and will also support wholesale and research licensees. “We like that we’re taking a platform agnostic, commodity equipment, agile SaaS model to the cannabis industry. It’s a major advantage to be able to run your grow or processing facility traceability from any mobile device, like a tablet or your smartphone,” says company co-founder, Eric Ogden, adding: “We’re technology disruptors. We’re unique in that we’re aligned with the industry first, while providing competent and reliable governmental support and reporting.”
WeedTraQR welcomes this opportunity to expand into Oregon’s exciting market and to bolster the state’s emerging recreational marijuana industry as it sets new standards for professionalism, compliance, and profitability. The company is seeking Oregon clients ahead of the full implementation of recreational marijuana regulations on October 1.
WeedTraQR develops software solutions for the legal cannabis industry and provides dramatically modernized and simplified traceability compliance. The company’s leadership team brings a commitment to excellence and decades of experience in technology, regulatory compliance, and process automation to their work in this nascent space. The WeedTraQR project is driven by high-level, big data analytics with an open-source ethic. Through a collaborative partnership with Straightline Analytics, WeedTraQR provides data analytics and business intelligence to clients and other industry players using an open-source data platform. In addition to Washington and Oregon, WeedTraQR’s mobile-ready software is integrated with medical cannabis traceability programs in New Mexico, Hawaii, and Illinois and will soon be compatible with recreational programs in Colorado and Alaska.
