Cannabis retail stores have unique challenges they have to overcome. With many moving parts such as inventory, staff onboarding, licenses, laws and hours and unique payroll processing challenges - things can get tricky.

In a unique setting like this, you need a unique dispensary payroll software, something that is flexible, and can integrate with other systems - or operate as a stand alone solution.

Using a dispensary payroll software that has the power to integrate with your POS and provide customized labor reports - or your time clock, or scheduling is going to be a game changer. With a flexible system, no matter where you are at in your software suite - you will have payroll covered.

2 - An integrated solution dispensary payroll solution.

Picture this, a system that integrates fully with all your back end operations, and just streamlines all the things.
From time & attendance, meaning your employee hours go directly into payroll - to your point-of-sale system meaning you can pull hours, and compare them against labor reports. This can also aid in speeding up data transfers of hours and sales!

You’re busy enough, so use a payroll software to your dispensary that allows you to spend more time to growing your business - instead of working on tedious items (like data transfers).

When it comes to compiling reports, your dispensary payroll software should be doing all the heavy lifting.

With the ability to look at meaningful reports, that are tailored to your business' specific needs, you'll be able to properly analyze your business at face value.

3 - Software that keeps you compliant.

In the wild world of cannabis, compliance is a big concern. It is key that you use software that helps you stay complaint with all the constantly changing regulation, but how? 

Our payroll software allows you to integrate with your time tracking, HR, and POS systems. Here's why that matters.

At a cannabis retail store, you may need to have your employees confirm their identity and age before punching into work. We created facial recognition software that does that - now streamline those hours to payroll, and voila.

Need to keep staff licenses on file? No problem, our payroll software also has an HR module, where you can keep all employee data on file, and secure.

And finally, our software integrates with top POS softwares for cannabis retail stores who  already ensure you are staying compliant in terms of inventory;  marry that with some top notch payroll software, and you are as compliant as they come! 

4 - An automated system to save you time.
