Jane Technologies, a leading player in the cannabis industry, has recently unveiled its groundbreaking point-of-sale (POS) platform designed to enhance the overall cannabis shopping experience. By providing reliable online listings and personalized in-store recommendations, Jane Technologies aims to address the common frustrations faced by cannabis consumers.
One of the most common challenges faced by consumers is arriving at a dispensary only to find their desired strain out of stock. This often leaves them with limited options or relying on the advice of budtenders with varying levels of expertise. To tackle this issue, Jane’s new POS system leverages their extensive e-commerce data catalog to optimize the in-store retail experience.
The platform seamlessly integrates with Jane Technologies’ existing e-commerce and advertising solutions, which were initially developed to support dispensaries’ online operations. Unlike the centralized model of giant retailers like Amazon, Jane Technologies envisions the future of cannabis to revolve around neighborhood dispensaries that offer online sales. By empowering both online and brick-and-mortar stores, Jane aims to provide a comprehensive solution for the cannabis industry.
Jane Technologies’ POS platform goes beyond standard features and offers a range of benefits. It includes a convenient debit card payment system, custom hardware, and a personalized shopping experience. However, the real power lies in Jane Technologies’ commitment to clean data assets. With an extensive tracking system of 1.5 million stock-keeping units (SKUs), the platform ensures accurate and up-to-date product information. This allows dispensary owners to focus on sales while the platform efficiently handles inventory management.
Furthermore, the platform enables a deep level of customer personalization. Through the mandatory scanning of government-issued IDs before entering a dispensary, retailers gain valuable insights into shoppers’ preferences and purchase history. Jane Technologies’ system utilizes this data to provide budtenders with a list of previously purchased products and recommendations backed by verified reviews. This personalized approach enhances the customer experience and opens doors for tailored in-store displays, in a retail environment that heavily relies on recommendations.
Additionally, the integration of the POS platform with a dispensary’s inventory is remarkably quick, taking just a couple of hours compared to weeks required by competitors. This efficiency is attributed to the streamlined process of exporting vital product information, imagery, and government tracking IDs.
Moreover, the platform allows for the inclusion of stand-alone kiosks, resembling vending machines, that offer speed and efficiency. Customers can browse and purchase products using a large touchscreen interface, eliminating the need for direct interaction with retail associates.
Jane Technologies has been rigorously testing this system with three dozen partners across several states, including the Pacific Northwest, New Mexico, California, and Colorado. The company is confident that its new POS platform will be deployed in 400 retail locations by the end of the year.
Jane Technologies has the potential to revolutionize the cannabis shopping experience. By leveraging technology and data-driven insights, the platform offers a personalized and seamless journey for consumers while empowering dispensaries and the entire industry. With its commitment to innovation, and creating a model where everyone wins, Jane Technologies is poised to shape the future of cannabis retail.
