Brytemap Intros Handheld RFID Compliance Tool for Cannabis Companies

Brytemap, a provider of technologies for the legalized cannabis industry, has introduced the Scout, a new addition to its software solutions suite. The Scout is designed to help cannabis growers, processors and dispensaries leverage RFID for instant inventory audits and reconciliation.

"In the many conversations we've had with stakeholders in all areas of the industry, the thing we hear most consistently is that Metrc compliance continues to be a challenge and priority," said Bryan Lopez, Brytemap's founder and CEO, in a prepared statement. "We hear stories ranging from RFID tags being absentmindedly put in peoples' pockets, to substantial fines being assessed because a grower threw out a tag they believed to be damaged, or tags being applied to plants without having been assigned in Metrc."

"Brytemap's Scout RFID-based handheld device addresses those issues head-on by allowing instant inventory auditing and item location through our technology," Lopez added in the prepared statement. "Growers can better track plants, processors and dispensaries can prevent misplacing package tags, and everyone can stay in compliance much more easily."

Built on Android-based technology and residing on a Zebra Technologies handheld RFID device, Scout offers up-to-the-minute plant inventory and reconciliation for operators in states utilizing Metrc, as well as quick resolution of compliance inconsistencies that could lead to warnings and fines if left unchecked. In addition, Scout can locate missing tags through its triangulation feature.
