What is best-of-breed cannabis software?
Business owners have the option to hand-pick a customized cannabis tool stack that does exactly what you need, starting with your cannabis POS.
Best of breed means the best product of its type. Companies often choose a different software provider to solve a specific need for each part of the business. For example, you might choose to purchase cannabis cultivation software from one vendor and point-of-sale from another, depending on your unique requirements and pricing constraints.
With a single tool that does it all, you’re putting all your eggs in one basket. You may get locked into a long term contract.
Seed-to-sale tools are built for every possible cannabis business need. You might end up paying for features you won’t use.
