The Green Market Report Tech Awards were presented following the first-ever Green Market Report Tech Summit on Sept. 8 at The Pearl event space in San Francisco. This week, we’ll be providing a closer look at the honorees.
Best Delivery Tech: BLAZE Solutions
When delivery started to become a key part of the cannabis industry, most cannabis software solutions didn’t address it as its own consideration. Instead, they tried to be everything to everyone, and as a result, they risked not being able to deliver for operators or consumers.
Enter BLAZE Solutions.
Cannabis professional Chris Violas founded BLAZE to meet the specific needs of the cannabis industry and correct the lack of resources to fulfill the needs of cannabis delivery operators.
BLAZE partners with leading cannabis industry experts and companies to take their delivery platform to the next level.
Their software pushes boundaries in three ways:
- Automation of daily tasks at a dispensary: Eventually, the technology will allow storefront retailers to automate the entire checkout process, eliminating the need for several budtenders.
- Centralized operations for its “ice-cream truck delivery” dispatch model: Previously, a dispatcher was needed at every hub or storefront, but with Dispatch Pro software, dispatchers can work from any centralized location.
- Integrated payment processing that allows customers to use debit cards to purchase products: This gives retailers the option to become a completely cashless business, eliminating some of the traditional risks of being an all-cash business. Offering digital payment options to customers also results in increased sales per transaction.
In August, the company received Service Organization Control 1 Certification from the American Institute of CPAs, which evaluates software’s practical application and function of data.
Congratulations to BLAZE Solutions for being selected as the Best Delivery Tech at the Green Market Report Tech Awards 2022.
