Streamlining the ordering process for cannabis operators, WM Exchange provides complete visibility into pricing, inventory availability and product information, real-time delivery and fulfillment information, and robust regulatory and compliance tools.
- Conduct transactions with total confidence. Because brands and sellers on WM Exchange can upload licensing and lab testing documentation to the platform, transactions can be conducted transparently and securely.
