Every medical marijuana dispensary relies heavily on their POS system to make sales, manage inventory, stay compliant, and track expenses. This is why it's so important for a dispensary POS system to be reliable.
System Crashes and Security Breaches
Recent system crashes of MJ Freeway's point-of-sale system have crippled many cannabis businesses forcing them to keep track of sales by hand. This is not the first time the software has suffered performance issues and earlier this year the company had a security breach.
Below is a timeline of the issues MJ Freeway has experience over the past 12-months:
- Saturday, October 21st and Monday, October 23rd several dispensaries were reportedly having issues with MJ Freeway's POS software GramTracker.
- September 18th, Users received an email with the subject line, “DATABASES 4 SALE,” that turned out to be a phishing scam and unfortunately the company was unable to obtain any of this data.
- September 12th, Spain was affected with a huge system outage that left over a hundred cannabis clubs shocked as an entire day of sales data was lost. MJ Freeway was unable to retrieve any of the lost data.
- In June of this year, MJ Freeway suffered a security breach as online hackers posted important source code information on the web.
- In January, the company experienced a massive system crash due to online hackers that hendered more than a thousand businesses for several days.
Cannabis dispensaries affected by this system crash have been left reeling, and many have been forced to temporarily shut their doors. It's completely understandable to see why many dispensary owners are losing faith in the POS system.
