In late 2015, BBSAC began looking for an alternative to MMJMenu. They required a solution that could accommodate limitation for purchases for residents and nonresidents, organize tax categories on receipts and finally, a solution that they could purchase software only. They already had their hardware and didn’t want to spend additional capital on something they didn’t need. After comparing multiple software options they went to Cafe Cartel for a demo. The following video demonstrates their first desired feature by utilizing CCS software.
As you can see, this feature prompts the budtender when the order exceeds the max gram count whether it be for residents or nonresidents. The POS calculates this amount based on the flowers, oils, edibles, etc. The ease of setting up this feature is equally as intuitive. CCS also routinely updates their software for Oregon’s requirements for scales, reports and receipts. Thus they also accommodate the categorized receipts. After discussing these needs with a CCS consultant, it was clear to Banana Belt that Cafe Cartel was a software company that not only understood the industry but adapted to it as needed - proving it to be the best, long term solution.
BBSAC was also able to purchase software only from CCS and install it on their own hardware. They gained access to a powerful inventory system which included item location, grow tracking and item details that lists the THC/CBD content, to name a few. Though there are many features CCS provides such as age verification, CRM, employee time clock, reconciling and reporting - there are always features or modules dispensaries prioritize more based on their needs.
