Standard operating procedures are simple yet powerful. They’re essentially step-by-step instructions on how to do something, often something you do on a repetitive basis, like checking out a customer at a dispensary.
Where things get tricky is this: a single cannabis business can have hundreds of SOPs. Plus, you will need all your employees to have easy access to them, to be able to find the right ones with ease, and to be able to sign off that they’ve read, understood, and will follow the required process. Finally, this is proprietary business information that you will want to protect from being altered, deleted or shared with your competition.
That’s where the Forte software platform comes in.
- SOPs boost efficiency by ensuring tasks get done the right way every time
- SOPs maintain consistency across all stores in your organization so that each and every location operates and communicates the same
- SOPs ensure consistent performance and customer experience across all locations, people, and time
- SOPs help you remain compliant
- SOPs streamline the training process by making the steps simple and more effective
- SOPs add an extra layer of protection for your business as you as an owner/operator can prove your employee has been trained on specific regulations
- SOPs required by law in many jurisdictions
Employees get a clear idea of what they need to do and how to do it. Managers get the tools and resources to support their training and development without having to reinvent the wheel each time they are onboarding a new employee. Execs get consistent results across all locations and ensure they are taking all appropriate steps to avoid compliance violations.
Most jurisdictions require you to submit thorough operations plans for all aspects of your business. If you are still in the licensing phase, Forte can help you put these plans together and then adapt them for your operational SOPs.
If you’re already in business and you don’t really have anything that you’d consider SOPs, you are putting yourself at risk of compliance violations and legal issues.
To Be the Best, You Have to Repeat the Best
There are times to get creative – in your marketing, branding, development of products, company culture, etc. Not with SOPs. We’ve worked with some of the largest and most successful cannabis businesses in the world, and we know how they operate. These are strong and proven practices that can’t be topped, only imitated.
