WIRE: Oregon approves four software providers for cannabis industry tracking

Portland, Oregon – The Oregon Liquor Control Commission and Metrc™ have approved four software solution providers whose products are compatible for integration with the Oregon Recreational Marijuana Program Cannabis Tracking System (CTS).

These products will allow OLCC recreational marijuana licensees to electronically transmit inventory and sales data into the CTS, a time-saving step that eliminates the need for additional updating by manual data entry.

The approved companies include: OMMPOS of Astoria, OR, Flowhub of Denver, CO, Greenbits of Portland, OR and Odava of Portland, OR. The four companies currently have clients using their software solutions in Oregon’s medical marijuana system.

Software solution providers can apply for certification in five inventory management categories: sales, packages, transfers, plants, and harvests; certification is also available for administrative functions: strains, items, and rooms/locations.

All licensees in Oregon’s Recreational Marijuana system are required to use the CTS. Licensees are not required to use POS or inventory management software and can enter their CTS data manually. The OLCC is not endorsing these software solutions.

More than 20 software providers are in the process of developing API solutions to enable their software to integrate with the CTS; the companies were required to prove their expertise and proficiency in this type of software development as a condition of their participation in the certification process.

Metrc is responsible for certifying software solutions. Companies that become certified will be added to the OLCC/Metrc Approved Integrator List. A link can be found on the OLCC Recreational Marijuana page under the section: Cannabis Tracking System [Franwell Metrc].

Approved companies are required to sign data use agreements with the OLCC. It is the responsibility of a licensee to enter accurate information into the certified system in order to comply with OLCC Rules. (503) 872-6366
