The over-reliance on Excel spreadsheets is a continuing issue. When it comes to harnessing the power of technology, supply chain digitization is vital to stay competitive for cannabis businesses in today’s age.

Unfortunately, despite the clear benefits of digitization, supply chain management has fallen behind.
