Medical marijuana clinics seed a homegrown software industry
Start-ups offer cannabis clinics tailored software tools for compliance and financial management
California's medical marijuana
industry has sprung up so fast it has attracted
firms offering compliance and financial software to help clinics stay on top of
all the rules surrounding the budding industry, IDG News Service reports.
The cannabis clinics have "an unbelievable number of unique requirements" due to changing
government regulations, Mark Goldfogel, founder of Colorado-based MJ Freeway, told the
wire service. The company offers a Web-based system that helps the dispensaries
with financial audits, inventory tracking, compliance and security issues.
Most of his customers had
been using simple spreadsheets and other office software, Goldfogel said.
