March Networks Selected to Secure Retail Cannabis Dispensaries
One of Canada’s largest cannabis producers has selected March Networks’ complete cannabis video solution for its retail dispensaries.
OTTAWA, Ontario, Canada — March Networks, a global provider of intelligent video solutions, announces that one of Canada’s largest cannabis producers has selected its complete cannabis video solution to provide security, loss prevention and operational insights for its retail dispensaries.
The publicly-traded producer, with multiple brands and a global presence, chose the March Networks solution based on its reliability, ability to support thousands of locations and its Searchlight business intelligence software, according to the company.
Searchlight provides organizations with information on customer service, risk mitigation, corporate compliance and other operations through the integration of surveillance video, point-of-sale (POS) transaction data and customer data analytics.
“Early on, we recognized the security and operational requirements of the tightly-regulated cannabis market and evolved our offering to uniquely address those needs,” says Peter Strom, president and CEO, March Networks. “Today, we are proud to be the solution of choice for cannabis operators, including this leading Canadian-based producer in advance of the legalization of the country’s recreational marijuana market in October.”
The announcement comes on the heels of Ontario — Canada’s largest province by population — opening up the sale of marijuana to private retailers, reversing a previous decision that would have seen sales limited to government-run outlets only.
March Networks currently works with multiple cannabis operators across the United States, providing intelligent video solutions for dispensaries and cultivation facilities.
In states like Colorado, where radio frequency identification (RFID) tagging from seed to sale is mandated by law, the solution delivers a level of tracking and compliance by correlating video with the RFID data in the Searchlight software.
In addition to March Networks Searchlight, the Canadian cannabis producer will deploy the company’s hybrid network video recorders (NVRs) in each retail store, as well as integrated 3D analytics sensors to gather valuable metrics on customer traffic and wait times.
March Networks says the producer will be able to centrally manage the entire system and easily schedule software updates using its Command enterprise server software, which is well-suited for organizations with multiple distributed locations, providing capabilities such as mass device management and LDAP integration to enable secure multi-level user access and authentication.
