Automated monitoring and an automatic plant watering system are fantastic ways to automate operations and save time and money. Monitoring software can detect problems and alert the cultivation manager remotely. It can even alert the cultivation manager to issues, such as overnight power outages or mechanical problems in the HVAC system. If a flower room is too hot, for example, it can cause the plant to die, or overheating can cause it to suffer serious damage.
Automation on compliance data entry
Several companies are now offering solutions to streamline compliance data entry for cannabis cultivators. One such company is GeoShepard, which provides mobile applications and wireless smart scales to help cannabis cultivators save time and labor. By eliminating redundant data entry and redundancy, this software solution has helped cannabis cultivators harvest more than 350,000 lbs. of marijuana in more than 82,000 batches. In addition, the company’s software allows operators to keep track of their compliance data from anywhere in the world.
As regulations continue to change and become more complex, compliance data entry can become a huge challenge for cannabis operators. Manual data entry methods have become expensive and time-consuming. In addition to resulting in errors, manual data entry methods make compliance management more difficult. To avoid these issues, cannabis operators should invest in data logging solutions, which automate compliance data entry. Automation can save a company time and labor by automating compliance data entry.
Besides saving time, automation can also help cannabis operators ensure product consistency. Because state regulations are so stringent, cannabis operators must ensure data accuracy to avoid penalties and license revocation. Automated harvesting machines can help cannabis operators save on time and labor by reducing the monotonous post-harvest grind. In addition to reducing labor and time requirements, automated trimming machines can also benefit workers. Unlike manual labor, these machines can help cannabis operators eliminate repetitive work and increase employee satisfaction.
For instance, automated harvesting processes can be retrofitted into existing cultivation sites. Before purchasing automation equipment, cannabis operators should decide the kinds and sizes of harvesting machines they need and allocate space for them. By identifying these needs, cannabis operators can choose the right combination of machines for their operation. Automation can save time and money for cannabis operators. Then, once the plants are harvested, the machines can perform their job quickly and accurately.
Using cannabis compliance software can help you save on both time and labor while staying in compliance with state regulations. A dedicated cannabis compliance software, such as ProCanna, will take the sting out of compliance. It promises to keep you up to date on all new state laws and regulations, train your employees, and audit your employees’ compliance with those rules. It will also allow you to input your internal policies and deliver customizable reports to specific end-user groups. For cannabis businesses that need more features, you can even opt for a low-cost guidebook package.
Automating reporting for cannabis compliance involves integrating cannabis-specific software with state-mandated compliance technology, such as Metrc. Without such software, employees must manually enter data at the end of the business day. An integrated system, on the other hand, allows employees to collect data as they move through their workflow, such as scanning plant tags and entering data into an integrated software system. This eliminates redundancy and errors caused by manual data entry.
Automation has several benefits for cannabis operators. For example, it can save time by ensuring consistency and throughput. This can also increase safety for the operators. And the added benefit of automation is that it can free up staff to focus on value-added aspects of the business. These benefits make automated extraction equipment an attractive investment for cannabis businesses. The following are some of the reasons to consider automated equipment for your cannabis operations.
As the industry grows and more states legalize marijuana, the demand for high-quality extracts increases. The stigma surrounding cannabis pre-rolls made with lower-quality trim will only increase consumer demand. Not all cannabis processing businesses wish to get into the extraction of oils and vape cartridges. However, those that do can greatly cut labor costs by focusing on flowers. And this allows them to build finer products.
