PUEBLO, Colo.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Anna has announced the launch of their self-checkout solution for dispensaries.

Customers can browse in-store using anna’s touchscreen interface or utilize online ordering by scanning their QR code upon arrival, keeping the checkout process to under a minute. This allows dispensaries and CBD retailers to service customers while adhering to today’s social distancing guidelines.

“The retail technology available to dispensaries has inhibited the cannabis industry’s path to normalization. In many traditional retail industries, self-checkout transactions are standard,” said Matt Frost, Founder and CEO of anna. “With anna, our stakeholders will see very quickly that prioritizing retail efficiency improves store traffic, and allows associates to spend additional time with more inexperienced customers. anna epitomizes ‘Cannabis Retail for Now’.”

A typical anna setup involves three to four units placed on the dispensary or retail sales floor.

With each device serving as its own point-of-sale register, an assigned cashier or associate—the anna.agent—is responsible for authorizing sales and live monitoring transactions through a secure tablet connected to anna’s network, all while prioritizing compliance.

Anna launched at two Colorado dispensaries this week.

Planned rollouts with anna’s dispensary partners extend through the year and into 2021—including a September 2020 launch in Massachusetts, as well as an expanded Colorado presence. By 2021, anna is focused on bringing the company’s self-checkout solution to cannabis markets in Nevada, California and Canada.
