HP Jumps Into Cannabis With Flowhub

Flowhub, a provider of compliance software for cannabis companies, announced today that it had entered into an agreement with technological giant Hewlett Packard (HP) to provide the company’s clients with HP’s ElitePOS Retail Point of Sale Terminal.

The ElitePOS Retail Point of Sale Terminal is currently on sale now and can be purchased online through Flowhub’s website. Integrated with the metrc compliance and business management platform, the terminals will help assist dispensary owners in keeping accurate records and staying compliant with state cannabis laws.

“HP is one of the largest and most innovative retail hardware manufacturers in the world,” said Kyle Sherman, CEO of Flowhub. “As we expand to new markets like California, we couldn’t think of a better partner. Retailers in this industry are bombarded with hobbyist software solutions with consumer hardware choices that cause compliance and operation headaches. Flowhub is excited to offer professional retail standard solutions that you’d find in other industries.”

As more states begin to legalize cannabis, the need for hardware and software to track cannabis sales and transportation records has become an ever-increasing concern. Flowhub’s partnership with HP is just the latest in a line of tech companies that have begun working with the cannabis industry.

Tech Giants Join Cannabis Industry

In 2016, Microsoft announced that it would welcome Kind Financial, which is also a cannabis compliance company, onto its Azure Government platform. A little more than a year later, news also broke that IBM had submitted a three-page proposal to the Canadian provincial government of British Columbia endorsing the idea of using blockchain as part of a seed-to-sale tracking system.

“HP is delighted to have our ElitePOS point-of-sale system selected by Flowhub for this comprehensive solution targeted to the growing Cannabis industry,” added Aaron Weiss, HP Vice President and General Manager for Retail Solutions. “Flowhub is one of the original metrc™ approved vendors with years of compliance experience, and HP is delighted to be a key part of the solution in this exciting new regulated industry.”
