Cannabiz Media started tracking point-of-sale (POS) software usage in the U.S. cannabis industry five years ago with the release of the Point-of-Sale Software in the Cannabis Industry – 2018 Report. We conduct fresh research and update the report on an annual basis. The fifth annual report will be released next week (subscribe to our newsletter so you don’t miss it). In addition, Cannabiz Media License Database subscribers can conduct their own analyses using the POS software vendor data we collect through our research efforts. All of the data is available in four premium POS Dashboards, which are accessible directly within the Cannabiz Media License Database.
Subscribers who add POS Dashboards to their subscriptions get immediate access to all of the information from the most current annual POS software report as well as five years of historical data for trend analyses. When you use the POS software data, combined with your own analyses, you’ll have more of the information you need to make strategic business decisions.
The Cannabiz Media License Database offers three distinct POS Dashboards as well as a Cannabis Software Stack Dashboard. Details about each dashboard follow.
The POS Analysis Dashboard provides tables and charts filled with data about POS software vendors in the cannabis industry, so you can examine market share at the state level as well as by market, and by METRC (USA). You can also filter down to specific states, POS vendors, and more to slice and dice the data further. You can also access detailed data about the number of POS stations in both U.S. and Canadian storefronts by state/province, vendor, and more. This Dashboard is updated as data changes.
The POS Analysis Dashboard is extremely helpful for sales research, particularly to determine which licenses use a specific POS software. In addition, the POS Analysis Dashboard can help with market research (e.g., learning which POS vendors have penetrated a certain state) so you can identify potential customers, business partners, or growth opportunities.
The POS Timeline Dashboard provides a timeline of U.S. and Canadian POS software vendors by state or province since October 2018. You can also drill down to the state or province level to see yearly market penetration by vendor.
The POS Dashboard is very useful for strategic planning and partnering. You can use it to track the history of various vendors and how market penetration has changed for each vendor on a state-by-state and year-by-year basis. The Dashboard reflects a snapshot in time, so the data is updated annually.
The POS Switches Dashboard provides information about customer gains and losses by POS software brand as well as a table comparing POS brand switches in 2021 to 2022. You can view the data in a graph or table format, access details about switches, and drill down by year or vendor.
If you want to see which vendors gained and lost customers, then the POS Switches Dashboard is the quickest way to get the information you need. This Dashboard is highly effective for partnership analysis and market analysis. It provides a snapshot in time, so it's updated on an annual basis.
