MJ Freeway Announces Tech Updates for MJ Platform
Updates will result in a faster checkout process for retailers, and let cultivators track batches instead of individual plants
New York, NY – November 9, 2018 – MJ Freeway, LLC (“MJ Freeway”), a leading seed-to-sale technology provider for the cannabis industry and developer of enterprise resource planning platform, announced a series of updates for its MJ Platform, a cannabis compliance tracking platform. The updates recently went live in the system.
“These updates include new functionality, which will simplify and improve many of the processes our clients complete in their operation daily,” says Jessica Billingsley, CEO & Co-Founder of MJ Freeway. “As the leading seed-to-sale platform having tracked more than $13 billion in cannabis sales through our MJ Platform® and Leaf Data Systems® we provide our clients with technology specific for their market and needs. We are also working closely with state regulators to advance the compliance standards and at the same time meet the needs of cannabis companies.”
At the heart of MJ Platform are features to deliver return on investment for cannabis businesses in efficiency and opportunity identification.
These features are part of MJ Platform’s seed-to-sale platform that connects cannabis businesses compliantly across the entire supply chain. We believe MJ Platform’s real-time data and visibility, along with features that enable businesses to save time and money, are hallmarks of next generation cannabis technology.
As previously announced, MJ Freeway has entered into a definitive merger agreement with MTech Acquisition Corp. (Nasdaq: MTEC), a special purpose acquisition company (“MTech”).
