SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 4th, 2016 marked the first deployment of Grassworks Digital’s innovative Simple Marijuana Menu (SMM). Today, the company is pleased to announce its partnership with Fweedom Cannabis, a multi-location retailer in Washington, which marks the 100th deployment of SMM in the recreational marijuana industry.
In achieving the company’s rapidly expanding market position, Grassworks CEO and co-founder Ryan Porter leveraged strategies he formulated in the highly competitive arena of online automotive retail, adapting proven tactics to the burgeoning recreational marijuana space.
Grassworks’ automated, cloud-based SMM tool helps recreational marijuana retailers attract and retain clients by providing a transformative customer experience. It’s next-generation cannabis technology.
Greenside Recreational was the first Grassworks Digital client to use the SMM tool, and General Manager Josh Cornutt is an advocate. “Not only has Grassworks’ professional management of our online presence made Greenside more visible to the public, the automated menu has saved us uncountable hours of labor.”
In the past 12 months, the company has also launched its Order Ahead product, which allows cannabis customers to place orders from their laptops, tablets, or smartphones. Since the technology works seamlessly with SMM and a retailer’s POS, it’s always clear what’s in stock, and when Order Ahead customers arrive at a retail location, they can skip the line and go directly to check out.
“Right now,” says Porter, “we’re seeing market-leading companies like Starbucks embrace the order ahead concept, and our product allows high-traffic locations to thrive without risking turning away potential customers.”
Since initially launching in Washington, Grassworks Digital has rapidly expanded into Oregon, Colorado, Arizona, Illinois and Michigan. By the close of the next fiscal quarter, the company expects to be in several more markets. “The feedback from our clients has been incredible,” says Porter. “Going forward, we’re going to continue to deliver time-tested solutions to the exploding recreational marijuana space.”
