CUE Marketplace Launches Industry-Specific Software Management Platform for Cannabis Businesses at MJ Biz Conference

November 13, 2018

BOULDER, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 13, 2018--CUE Marketplace, the leading business software marketplace, has announced the launch of CUE Cannabis, its cannabis business-focused software offering, which will be showcased at the MJ Biz Conference in Las Vegas. CUE Cannabis is the first software marketplace and dashboard purpose-built for small business owners in the cannabis space to help navigate the unique difficulties associated with the industry, and enabling them to more efficiently run their cannabis businesses.

Across America’s nascent cannabis industry, there is a marked lack of resources available to SMBs who are in need of proficient software solutions to more efficiently and compliantly operate their businesses. CUE Cannabis’ comprehensive portfolio of available dispensary business software includes but is not limited to POS, accounting, marketing, and human resources systems. CUE Cannabis looks to satisfy the unmet needs of the dispensary and other cannabis business owners who are in desperate need of guidance when it comes to selecting the right tools to meet their needs and excel in an increasingly competitive market.

“Until now, there were no resources available to dispensary owners looking for effective, compliant software solutions to help them run their businesses,” said Sean Glynn, President, and COO, CUE Marketplace. “The research and vetting processes to make these decisions in any industry are time-consuming and taxing, but particularly in the cannabis space, where the resources are fewer and the stakes are higher, selecting the right technology can mean the difference between growth and failure.”

CUE Cannabis empowers dispensary owners to make strategic operational decisions by providing them with the right software and tools. These tools allow dispensary owners and others in the marijuana vertical to identify business and process inefficiencies such as inventory management, client retention, and revenue maximization. Furthermore, unlike many other software providers in the space that struggle to broadly cover all needs, CUE Cannabis enables operators to choose from a short, curated list of top performing offerings in each of the most important business categories.

“Because this industry is still in its infancy, it’s no surprise that many of the technology offerings are either unreliable or unsuited to dispensary owners’ unique needs,” said John Svoboda, cannabis industry consultant for CUE Marketplace. “Particularly in track-and-trace markets like Colorado and Oregon, SMBs are looking for a source of truth to guide their decision-making process. CUE Cannabis makes this undertaking easy and worry-free so business owners can focus on what’s most important.”

Users can rest assured the software and tools available on CUE Cannabis have been vetted extensively, so owners are purchasing trusted, verified software. Apart from having access to best in class tools, CUE Cannabis also offers a business dashboard that allows users to manage software billing and updates all in one place and view insights into their business’ financial health. The dashboard also provides a marketing analytics page that aggregates data from social media and email marketing channels, so owners can quickly assess key data and campaign results from their digital marketing efforts.

Current CUE Cannabis software partners include:

Würk - a cannabis specific HR and payroll platform making it simple and easy to manage your employees Green Bits - a leading cannabis POS software for retail operations that helps owners stay compliant in their sales Flowhub - a compliant cannabis retail management system, complete with point of sale software, inventory management, and mobile solutions Best in Grow - allows dispensary owners to collaborate and connect with employees, other retailers, budtenders, and brands to share insights and feedback for others to learn from springbig - dispensary loyalty software and SMS messaging software Trellis - the leading seed-to-sale inventory tracking software for the B2B cannabis supply chain
