With the pandemic leading to closure of businesses due to low demand and many others operating their businesses online to adhere to the social distancing regulations, there is no better time than now to automate your cannabis business. Automating your business ensures both you and your employees are not recklessly putting themselves in harm’s way while also increasing the efficiency of your business.
The margins in the marijuana sector are growing tighter as the sector gets more competitive. To survive, businesses must adapt and adopt automation.
Below are reasons why automating your business is the best way to go.
Allows one to control quality
To increase sales and achieve consumer loyalty, one’s product has to consistent, be of high quality and the integrity of the terpenes should be maintained. Implementing automation ensures that if a high-quality raw material is used, the end product is of high quality as well. The precision automation offers will be essential in the coming years in order to remain competitive.
Helps increase production
Implementing automation in harvesting and post-harvesting processes increases production, cuts down on employee hours and maintains product quality. Automation increases overall efficiency, giving a company an edge in a highly competitive market.
Less staff are required
Additionally, automation eliminates the need for employees, making it the less costly and far better option as it allows businesses to employ only highly trained individuals for the long term. This saves businesses a lot, especially in terms of income for employees, money spent on training and is generally less time consuming to oversee; an added advantage.
Automation also decreases the risk of contamination of a product, as no workers will be physically handling the product. The machines made of high-grade stainless steel are easy to clean and sterilize, making them safer for product handling.
Furthermore, automation also minimizes the risk of financial loss caused by errors made by workers, which may be fatal for small businesses.
Improves workplace safety
Utilizing machines in one’s facility ensures that the workplace has minimal accidents and workers can observe social distancing at work. Using conveyors to move the products between different stations also eliminates the need to have workers in close proximity to each other. The safety this provides allows the workers to focus on their current tasks without the fear of getting infected.
Automation promotes a healthy working environment as it shows employees that their safety and health is valued in the business. Socially distanced production and automation is the future and we are living in it. There is a likelihood that it will endure long after the pandemic ends because of the many benefits it offers not only to a business’ production process but also to the employees of the business. It may therefore not be surprising to learn that cannabis companies like Sugarmade, Inc. (OTCQB: SGMD) have automated most of their operations.
