We needed a system that could help us assign and schedule tasks, as well as see how long the life of a product is in terms of how long it takes to make, label, and shrink wrap. We needed this information by the item itself and a way to multiply it long-term so when taking on larger projects, we know if we need more help and can directly see the cost of materials and operations. We also wanted a better overview of our inventory, and Katana had all of that.
Production Lead at Essence One
At first, we approached work ad-hoc, mainly doing everything by estimations. But once we got started with Katana, we were able to formulate a schedule and get our stock under control. Before, we would quite often experience delays but, since using Katana, we've been able to be on top of our order fulfillment.

Maintain your cannabis inventory with a single platform and simplify production
You know you’re dealing and wheeling in the right industry when NBA’s (NBA is the world’s leading basketball league, not something silly like No Bros Allowed) most beloved coaches and influential players are openly advocating cannabis products. However, the competition is growing. Cannabis dispensaries and manufacturers need to be and remain innovative in their operations.
Your choice of cannabis software can have a significant impact on your business. It can help make daily operations run smoothly and give you extra time for devising a growth strategy for your company. Katana’s ERP helps you obtain a holistic view of your hemp business, as it automates daily workflows and has a reliable tracking system for your product inventory.
Keep oil and edibles production flowing with savvy management
When you bring your CBD oil or THC edibles production process into Katana, you will understand straight away what your business was lacking. Let’s give you an example.
Once you import product recipes into Katana’s cannabis software and change production statuses, Katana automatically updates the stock of raw materials. You’ll always know what materials are committed to production, and now you can make clearer estimations of when to reorder those materials.
In addition to standard bills of materials, you’ll be able to control your warehouses with batch tracking. You can complete the tracking process with barcode scanners for easier stock takes. All of these factors, when combined, allow for more intelligent production scheduling.
Use integrations to reach both loyal and newfound customers
If you want to skip managing cannabis retailers and instead desire selling directly to customers, find the simplest way possible. For hemp oils, cosmetics, and edibles makers, this might be a single physical medical cannabis store in Canada, California, or, heck, even North Dakota, or through an online shop. Just be 100% sure of what products are and aren’t allowed in your market.
However you choose to sell your weed, Katana’s cannabis inventory management system can be integrated into the process. Our integration with Shopify can be linked to your own cannabis store point-of-sales aka POS system. You can align sales data to both your accounting and manufacturing software. And speaking of accounting, Katana can integrate with QuickBooks Online and Xero, popular industry-leading accounting software options.

Cannabis inventory management that is systematic will help cannabis dispensaries operate safely, avoiding hefty licensing fines or suspensions from public officials.
Also, understocking, overstocking, or over assorting (having too many products in a specific category, such as vape arts or edibles) can have a negative impact on your cannabis business revenue potential.
The best way to stay updated with all cannabis laws in your country is to consult with public officials, a familiar lawyer, or other legal experts who specialize in cannabis law. You can also find helpful information on the websites of various government or state agencies that regulate cannabis.
