Dutchie becomes tech partner for New York's first weed dispensaries
Dutchie will be providing tech services for free to New York's first legal weed stores.
Dutchie, a company that has provided technology platforms to cannabis businesses since 2017, will offer point-of-sale software and ecommerce software free of charge to CAURD license holders who have secured storefronts through the state’s Social Equity Cannabis Investment Fund. Anne Forkutza from Dutchie's strategic growth, said, 'This is an enormous win for Dutchie'. She stated that New York is a major and important market. This state will be the model for the rest of the cannabis industry when it becomes federally legal. Dutchie employs more than 700 people across the country, and 50 more in New York. "This is something that we have not seen other states do." Forkutza stated that this social equity program is unique in the cannabis industry. He said that it is free software and he wanted to be part of a great cause. She stated that she would learn a lot about New York's cannabis industry, as well as about her customers and customers. "We will have the first-mover advantage."
