Getting the score keeping right -
Most people hate accounting and dealing with the issues and organization required to keep track of their business.

Internal controls -
It is always good to trust employees, but it is always best to have procedures, checks and balances to make sure what you earn stays in the store.

The medical marijuana industry is rife with internal and external theft and cash diversion at rates much higher than regular retail outlets; make sure you have to best practices in place to keep on top of your earnings.
Cost Accounting -
How much does it really cost to make a gram? Many producers use outside metrics to guess at what their costs are for each unit of product sold, but every production facility is different, depending on state laws, technology used and grower technique. To flourish in a crowded market, you need to remove as much cost from your products while maintaining quality in the finished product. We come from a manufacturing background and can help identify cost centers, bottlenecks, optimal payment terms and allocating capital investments in order to lower production dollars and increasing gross margin.
