When receiving a transfer from Metrc or BioTrack, GrowFlow Retail can supplement the data for the transfer and packages when the transfer comes from a supplier that uses GrowFlow Wholesale. The data is then auto-populated in GrowFlow Retail.

Why use it?

The Metrc and Biotrack traceability systems frequently do not contain as much information about a package as GrowFlow Wholesale does. When you receive an incoming transfer through Metrc or Biotrack, supplementing the package details with more information from GrowFlow Wholesale can save you time and reduce manual errors.

Supplemental Data

The following data is auto-populated from GrowFlow Wholesale if it is not received from Metrc or BioTrack:

  • Test Result Unit of Measure

    • By default, the Unit of Measure for the package is used.

    • If the package does not have a UOM, GrowFlow Retail looks at all the test results for the package and the UOM for each result. If they are different, it determines which UOM is the majority and uses that. If a tie, % (percent) is used.

  • Transfer level Data

    • Supplier (in the rare case that this is not captured from Metrc or BioTrack)

    • Transporter ID

    • Transporter License Number

    • Transporter Name

  • Package Level Data

    • Cost per unit/total cost

    • Manufacture Date

    • Harvest Date

    • Batch ID

    • Expiration Date

    • Sell by Date

    • Use by Date

  • Lab Results

    • Lab Name

    • Lab License Number

    • Tested Date

    • Test Results: THC, THCA, TotalTHC, CBD, CBDA, TotalCBD, CBC, CBN, THC mg/g, THCA mg/g, CBD mg/g, CBDA mg/g, CBC mg/g, CBN mg/g

    • Test Results PDF URL
