“Start-ups can be challenging. Cannabis Start-ups take stress to a whole-other-level. When it came to seed-to-sale software we couldn’t take the risk of reinventing the wheel. We were in a unique situation of being experienced business people immersing ourselves in an industry that was still in infancy here in Puerto Rico.

We asked for a reliable, user-friendly software to serve as our compliance and business solution. BioTrack has met and exceeded expectations as a solid platform that allows us to operate our dispensary network. Their customer service literally like calling that high-school friend that knew how to solve all your IT issues. We’re glad to have them as co-authors of our success story.”

Jason Dey-Chao Zorrilla, Director of Operations, Clinica Verde, Puerto Rico

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr. Tolentino and the rest of the BioTrackTHC Staff for giving me excellent customer support from the start.  Before we opened our doors, up until the present, I’ve always had someone there for me at the other end for support questions regarding the software. They go beyond their duties by pointing out possible compliance issues as well as providing ideas on how to better run my operations. The Software helps me keep track of sales and inventory and the people behind it are second to none. I recommend BioTrackTHC because of their software and service.”
