SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, SPARC, one of San Francisco’s largest and most respected cannabis collectives, and Eaze, the tech-powered, on-demand marijuana delivery service, announced a new partnership to deliver medical marijuana to patients quickly, easily and professionally. SPARC now uses Eaze’s technology platform to automate deliveries of SPARC products to patients with great speed and accuracy.
“Making home deliveries to our patients has always been a goal of ours. With Eaze’s technology, we went from zero to hundreds of deliveries within 24 hours of making the decision to partner with Eaze. Clearly, the technology is key,” said Robert Jacob, executive director of SPARC.
Patients can now order SPARC medical marijuana products on the Eaze platform (www.eazeup.com) in just three clicks once they are verified and logged in. Eaze automatically dispatches the nearest driver carrying the requested strain of medicine. Patients are given an estimated delivery window that is updated in real time. Eaze’s proprietary technology platform automates the entire process from order to driver dispatch to delivery while tracking inventory in real time. The automation allows SPARC to execute deliveries with great accuracy.
“SPARC shares our vision to deliver marijuana to patients quickly, easily and professionally. We’re proud that our technology is already helping SPARC deliver medicine conveniently to hundreds of patients, many of whom cannot drive or take public transportation due to health issues. We’re looking forward to bringing more benefits to patients as we deepen our partnership with SPARC,” said Keith McCarty, founder and CEO of Eaze.
Eaze also announced today that the company raised $1.5 million seed round to expand its technology service. Press release is here.
