Three Greens Collective Powered by Meadow Case Study

Since 2021, Three Greens Collective was powered by Meadow’s cannabis POS software, but switched briefly to a different point of sale system; they were promised new features, but after just a few months on the other system, they were frustrated to learn that those new promised tools were still in beta testing, or were simply not yet built.

They quickly decided to return to Meadow.

In this Q&A with Creative Director Oscar Valles, we will take a closer look at how Three Greens thinks about POS functionality and workflows, and the importance of compliance and maintaining inventory accuracy.

Q: What were the pain points or issues you experienced on the other cannabis POS system you tried?

A: “When we started using Treez, the transition from Meadow’s iPad based Mac OS software to Windows was a challenging and expensive process for our business. Many of our existing equipment was not compatible due to incorrect driver settings, which added to the overall cost of the transition. Setting up the new system was a significant undertaking. I had to take matters into my own hands and configure every computer, scanner, receipt printer, and register individually. The process of installing drivers for each device was time-consuming and cumbersome."

“We also experienced difficulty with the Treez METRC integration and keeping our business compliant. The point of sale system didn’t meet our needs. We missed the simplicity of using Meadow and wished we had never switched.”
-Oscar Valles, Creative Director, Three Greens Collective

Q: What was your experience with the Meadow switchover onboarding process after making the switch? How long did it take?

A: “Onboarding with Meadow was simple. The switchover process only took 2-3 days with Meadow’s implementation team. Since I had the hardware set aside from before, the setup was simple. Plug and play. Download the iOS app. No troubleshooting required.”

When you switch from one point of sale platform to Meadow, you will work with our expert implementation team to ensure you start fresh on Meadow with accurate data.

Here’s what the onboarding process looks like:

  1. Our team will evaluate your Metrc health, and help you rectify any compliance issues before importing your product and customer lists. Look for compliance red flags using this easy checklist.
  2. To avoid downtime in sales, after your dispensary closes, we’ll import your inventory and connect your Metrc account to Meadow to get you set to begin operations the next day.
  3. Quickly train your team using self-paced video courses and robust support from Meadow’s customer service team.

Not all cannabis software systems are created equally

After launch, Meadow’s support chat provides live agent responses in less than 5 minutes. Schedule personal follow up calls, join regularly scheduled webinars for ongoing education and best practices, refer to our constantly growing help center and view new updates in Meadow’s Changelog.

Q: Would you recommend Meadow’s cannabis POS to other dispensary operators?

A: "Meadow takes care of all the work to ensure that you don't get in trouble for any minor mistakes. This is important because not everyone in the dispensary is as tech savvy as others. The user interface is well-organized, making navigation simple. There are video tutorials for almost everything in Meadow. The hardware requires little to no maintenance. The marketing and CRM platform are important to us and one of our favorite features.”

"In the cannabis industry, mistakes can be costly. Meadow ensures that you are METRC compliant, reducing the risk of errors. By doing the heavy lifting, Meadow guarantees our safety and compliance. We no longer feel like we have to tread carefully. When compared to alternative systems, compliance management is much easier with Meadow." -Oscar Valles, Creative Director, Three Greens Collective
