SAP Business One: the gold standard for Cannabis ERP


In this post, we’ll introduce you to an enterprise resource planning system SAP Business One, the gold standard ERP for agriculture, and the backbone of Viridian Sciences cannabis ERP software. We’ll go over the advantages of using a robust ERP system in agriculture and talk about specific advantages that are provided by SAP Business One for cannabis companies. 

So you want to succeed in the cannabis industry. Whether you’re growing medical or recreational marijuana or hemp for CBD or industrial use, you need seed-to-sale software. These systems provide powerful tools not only for seed-to-sale tracking, but also for tracking variables related to cultivating, manufacturing, testing, distribution, and selling of marijuana and hemp products. Without these tools, cannabis operations will find it difficult if not impossible to maximize return on investment. 

But there’s also another set of tools that can make or break a cannabis enterprise that has little to do with growing cannabis and everything to do with all other aspects of running a successful cannabis operation. These tools are referred to as enterprise resource planning systems, or ERPs. 

Viridian Sciences offers a cannabis ERP that not only includes seed-to-sale software but also provides the information technology required to run a business from end to end. How do we do this? We partner with the world’s gold-standard ERP developer.
