(DENVER) March 22, 2022 – PRESS RELEASE – Simplifya, a regulatory and operational compliance software platform serving the cannabis industry, announced it launched a suite of cannabis compliance solutions for businesses in Connecticut, expanding the reach of the company’s footprint to 25 states. The suite of services includes Simplifya Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), Simplifya Smart Cabinet and Simplifya Self Audit, which have been specifically designed to help cannabis businesses stay up to date and remain compliant under Connecticut’s laws, as well as manage risks in a cost-effective way.
Connecticut began its medical marijuana program in June 2012, a year after Gov. Dannel Malloy signed legislation decriminalizing the plant statewide. Then, after three separate bills for adult-use cannabis were proposed in 2018 but stalled out, the Constitution State passed adult-use in 2021. However, the state has yet to fully implement the system. Connecticut is aiming to commence retail sales by the end of 2022, and has opened its first application round for certain adult-use licenses.
“Our mission is to simplify regulatory compliance for Connecticut operators, especially during a time when the state is expected to see significant regulatory changes,” said Simplifya CEO and co-founder Marion Mariathasan. “As Connecticut prepares for adult-use cannabis, our suite of compliance solutions will help ensure new and existing businesses are running efficiently, effectively and legally, producing documents for an inspection at a moment’s notice and easily streamlining cannabis compliance efforts, so operators can spend more time on what they’re really passionate about: cannabis.”
Simplifya Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs): Simplifya SOPs are designed to help ensure cannabis businesses are efficiently, effectively and legally running. They outline best practices and processes for the clients’ entire organization. While creating the correct SOPs can be long and arduous, Simplifya’s team of analytical and regulatory experts developed both generic and license-specific SOP bundles, which include everything cannabis businesses need to immediately get up and running. SOPs also ensure cannabis compliance by providing a comprehensive base, which can be used as is or customized to meet the client’s specific needs. If there are changes, Simplifya’s team also automatically updates the specific SOP and sends clients a notification.
Simplifya Smart Cabinet: Ninety percent of cannabis compliance is documentation, including keeping and organizing documents, making sure no documents are expired and being able to produce documents for inspection at a moment’s notice. Simplifya Smart Cabinet is a user-friendly and convenient online document storage hub that helps eliminate the worry and stress of organizing and storing critical documents. Smart Cabinet provides businesses with a cheat sheet of every document needed based on their license, an intuitive interface, complete control over who has the ability to access these documents, the flexibility to assign documents to employees and reminder features for when a file needs to be updated.
Simplifya Self Audit: Simplifya’s team of lawyers and regulatory analysts review state and local regulations to create a checklist of simple “Yes” or “No” questions to help companies determine if they’re operating in compliance with all of the rules related to their license type. If the Self Audit finds an area where a company is not in compliance, an employee can create an action to fix the issue, assign it, track the task to completion and store the corrected results in a Remediation Report for future use or reference.
