Star Spotlight with Green Bits

What does Green Bits do?

Green Bits is an inventory and point of sale system for recreational cannabis retail. Unlike a standard point of sale system, Green Bits is directly integrated into their customer’s state seed-to-sale tracking system. Green Bits is designed from the ground up to integrate seamlessly into any store’s workflow and is built for speed, simplicity, and security.

How is Green Bits working with Star Micronics?

Green Bits has added support for Star Micronics TSP650II BTi receipt printer and CD3 crash drawers. With Green Bits being an iPad-based software, the Bluetooth receipt printer allows customer to print receipts without needed a physical, wired connection. Green Bits customers find the Bluetooth connection between the iPad and receipt printer to be very strong and easy to troubleshoot should any issues arise.

What key benefits do Green Bits and Star Micronics bring to the cannabis retail market?

Green Bits currently runs over 50% of cannabis retail stores in Washington and also supports Colorado and Oregon, all of which use Star Micronics’ TSP650II BTi printer with a CD3 cash drawer. As recreational cannabis legalization continues to grow, Green Bits and Star Micronics will continue to dominate that market. The bundled solution allows retailers to keep track of their sales and analytics by budtender in one, easy-to-use platform. The wireless connection between the device and printer also helps to reduce clutter, making it easier for retailers to increase their impulse sales at the POS.
