Background

Alden Linn knew the cannabis industry was for him. “While in college, I developed a passion for the plant that just continued to progress.” After a career that began in technology, Alden eventually found his way to Washington’s legal cannabis industry. “When the opportunity came about, I just had to jump in and do it,” says Alden.

In July 2015, Alden turned his passion into a commercial reality with the opening of World of Weed in Tacoma. The store was designed around a “comfortable coffee shop kind of feel.” Alden wanted a store that was approachable and accessible to people. “I wanted a design that was very comfortable and that people were already accustomed to.”

Challenge

While Alden describes his store as “just standard retail,” he confronted the same – and many more – challenges facing a retail small business owner in any industry. Alden knew he needed to run an efficient retail store and automation was a key ingredient.

Without the right set of tools, Alden knew his staff would be forced to spend time on activities like compliance management and menu updates – necessary tasks but administrative in nature, particularly in a constantly changing environment. Rather than managing manual processes, Alden wanted the ability to focus his team on delivering a great customer experience.

"Green Bits’ integration with the state system keeps us us compliant. Reconciling and tracking sales is so easy."

Green Bits Solution

Alden nearly selected another vendor. But then Alden found Green Bits. And with Green Bits, Alden found automation. “With the integration to the state traceability system, we could just see that Green Bits was better than anybody else.” 

For starters, Alden saw how Green Bits would help World of Weed remain compliant without investing hours of staff time every day. “Our inventory must be 100% aligned with the state each day. Green Bits’ integration with the state system keeps us compliant.”

And with Green Bits’ automated menu integrations, Alden reallocated staff since the business no longer had to manually update three different menus each day. “Making our menu available online is critical as it gives us better SEO [search engine optimization], bringing us to the top of search listings. With Green Bits, we get the benefit but don’t have to constantly manage the updates.”

Since selecting Green Bits to run World of Weed, Alden has never looked back. With all the time savings, Alden and his staff focus on the business instead of software and manual reporting.

“It’s just so easy,” says Alden. “I’ve become accustomed to submitting my state taxes with the click of a button.” 

Green Bits makes life easier for Alden. And with automation, he is able to get more out of his staff. “With the automatic updates, I got half a guy’s time back to focus on stuff that actually counts, like driving traffic to the store.”
