he massive rise in delivery-based business over the pandemic has transformed how customers interact with their favorite brands across the United States and the world. Consumers now expect everything from alcohol to toiletries to be available at their doorstep. As legalization spreads across the country, that expectation of seamless delivery is extending into the cannabis industry. Currently, fourteen states permit regulated cannabis deliveries, but that number is expected to rise over the next few years.
For most dispensaries, however, the idea of quickly implementing online purchasing and delivery is daunting, to say the least, if not downright impossible to navigate safely, efficiently, and legally. That’s where Blaze can step in, offering state-of-the-art delivery software and POS systems designed to provide seamless solutions to cannabis purveyors.
“We feel that delivery is going to be a key piece for retailers who are looking to grow their business,” says Chris Violas, the CEO of Blaze. “We think it’s here to stay and we’re doubling down on that market by continuing to develop new features to streamline and scale delivery operations.”
Blaze’s software addresses back-end logistics and the tracking and managing of drivers. It also creates a delivery service that will pass each state’s regulatory status, avoiding legal headaches. Designed by industry veterans, the delivery software integrates directly with a store’s POS system to allow accurate inventory tracking. It features signature capture and ID verification, and it provides delivery drivers with a complete manifest and inventory ledger.
To enhance the consumer’s experience, the Blaze Delivery app easily captures customer signatures, verifies IDs, and tenders orders—customers can even pay ahead. Plus, it offers the ability for drivers to communicate securely with dispatch or with the customer for last minute changes.
A recent report from Uber showed that delivery revenue grew 103% in 2020, a number that is expected to continue to rise moving forward. There is no reason why cannabis businesses cannot get in on that trend and expand too. They just need the proper framework in place to make it happen.
BLAZE announced this month that they now support BioTrack integration. Learn more by clicking the link below.
