What We Manage
Internet and Phone
Get Quick Support
at Any Time
We can start resolving any IT issue at any time in as little as 10 minutes. That's big in the cannabis industry, especially the retail sector, where 5 minutes can feel like 50 with an upset customer standing in front of you. Plus, it's just comforting knowing you have someone you can call and just get an IT issue fixed fully and quickly - you don't have to rush out and find a local IT person on Yelp or elsewhere that may or may not be dependable, all while your business is seriously disrupted.
Protect Your Business
Hackers are opportunists that go after low-hanging fruit. Even if you're a small business with just a few POS tablets or terminals and a laptop, they'll be happy to steal what data you have and/or hold you for ransom. With Cure8, you can get 24/7 monitoring and management from cybersecurity experts for a low cost per month - a fraction of hiring an in-house IT security specialist.
End the Worrying
With all the regulations involved and the increasing prevalence and complexity of cybersecurity threats, it can be impossible for anyone but a specialist to keep up. With Cure8 managed services cannabis business owners sleep better at night knowing that you've got a team of experts monitoring and protecting your IT 24/7.
Prevent Lost Sales
Ongoing management and maintenance is the best way to prevent security breaches and IT hardware, software, and network outages, all of which can seriously disrupt your business and result in lost sales and productivity. These events can prevent retailers from completing transactions and tracking inventory, prevent cultivators from moving, labeling, and processing plants and affect growing equipment, and prevent distributors from completing sales, staying in touch with their clients, and making deliveries. With Cure8 managed services cannabis businesses avoid these problems and allow you to spot and fix issues quickly if they happen to occur.
Focus on Your Business,
Not Your IT
Unless you're an in-house IT employee, you probably don't want to waste any of your valuable time troubleshooting and maintaining IT, and you probably don't want your employees doing so, either. You should be focused on high-level business initiatives like business planning, marketing, and hiring, and your employees should be focused on retail, cultivation, processing, or distribution operations - not fiddling with IT and Googling troubleshooting steps.
How One of Canada's Dispensaries Never Misses a Sale

As a result, the store never misses a sale, and the managers and employees all have someone to call to get support quickly in the event of a problem - even after hours.
