A marijuana or cannabis dispensary is a physical location inside a retail storefront or office building wherein a person can buy cannabis and cannabis related items for medical or recreational use. As of 2018, the medical use of cannabis or medical marijuana is legal in 31 states and the District of Columbia.
The recreational use of cannabis or recreational marijuana is legal in 9 states plus the District of Columbia. The amount of marijuana that can be legally bought by a person from a dispensary depends on the regulations set by each state where cannabis is legal.
Although many customers will directly walk into the marijuana dispensaries to buy their cannabis, there can be many situations wherein people would prefer to make an appointment with you first before they go to your dispensary. This is usually applicable for clients who want to reserve their purchases so when they come to your store, they can immediately pay their reserved orders and finish their transactions fast.
Just think of the large number of customers calling, texting or emailing just to book appointments with your business. You and your staff will certainly be overwhelmed! You need an efficient scheduling system that can automate the tasks related to making appointments with a large number of customers.
That’s exactly what GigaBook’s marijuana dispensary scheduling software can do for you! Our scheduling software has many features that will surely be beneficial to your business such as reducing redundant tasks, and improving efficiency and customer satisfaction.
Try GigaBook’s Marijuana Dispensary Scheduling Software
Our marijuana dispensary scheduling software allows clients to book appointments through your existing website or business page. Once the customers schedule an appointment, your GigaBook calendar, as well as your third-party calendars – Office 365, Microsoft Exchange, Outlook, Apple iCal and Google Calendar – are synced simultaneously. This results in fewer no-show appointments and eliminates the chances of double-bookings.
GigaBook also gives you the ability to automate much of the redundancy you come across everyday in your business. For example, keeping up with your dispensary’s invoice process has never been easier. You have the ability to create invoices, schedule when to send them and to whom, and monitor their statuses throughout the whole process. You can also search for specific invoices by invoice number, client information and business name.
If your dispensary accepts payments online, GigaBook integrates with payment processing platforms such as Stripe, PayPal, Authorize.net and Braintree. Your payment collection process becomes faster and easier for you. Integration with those platforms also expands the payment methods of your customers and keeps their eyes on your website. This leads to better client satisfaction and more repeat business.
