Wikileaf Launches New Products to Aid Cannabis Retailers Amid COVID-19 Crisis
The products include an online ordering feature and mobile app creation service for retailers
SEATTLE, June 2, 2020 (Newswire.com) - Wikileaf Technologies Inc. ("Wikileaf" or the "Company") (CSE: WIKI), a leading price comparison platform that helps consumers with finding cannabis strains products and brands, is pleased to announce the launch of two new products: Pro and Premium.
The two new products are part of the Wikileaf Business Suite, an initiative to help support cannabis retail growth in the U.S. and Canada during and after the COVID-19 crisis.
Pro unlocks the ability for licensed cannabis retailers to facilitate orders through the Wikileaf platform with a feature called Click and Collect.
Instead of requiring users to physically visit a store to place an order, users can now add products to their “bag” and visit a Pro-subscribing retailer to pick up and pay for their items.
In addition to Click and Collect, Pro offers every feature available in Lite, as well as better digital advertisement placements and a medium-sized icon for the platform’s “price comparison” map.
At launch, Pro will be available to U.S. and Canadian cannabis retailers at $500 USD per month.
Premium looks to expand on Pro by giving cannabis retailers more opportunities to differentiate themselves from their competitors with a service called Your Store App.
With Your Store App, Wikileaf will work with Premium subscribers to customize a white-labeled mobile application that is in line with each subscriber's unique needs.
Customers and Wikileaf users will be able to download the app on their Apple or Android devices and browse the retail store’s menu, make order reservations, and read store details including store hours and directions.
At an initial price point of $1,000 USD per month, retailers can use the service as a way to differentiate themselves from their competitors while avoiding the exorbitant costs and lengthy development cycles associated with creating their own application from scratch.
Premium subscribers will also receive every feature in Lite and Pro, as well as the highest digital advertisement available on Wikileaf and the largest and most prominent map icon.
Earlier this year, Wikileaf launched Lite, formerly “Bronze.” Lite offers licensed cannabis retailers limited ad space, a web traffic analytics dashboard, and a small map icon on the “price comparison” map.
Lite is currently available to U.S. and Canadian cannabis retailers for $200 USD per month.
“With the cannabis industry being declared as “essential” by many regional governments amid the COVID-19 pandemic, we believe it is crucial to deliver products that can help support and foster growth for legal cannabis retailers during such a turbulent time. Wikileaf’s Pro and Premium will do just that by providing stores more opportunities to increase revenue, improve brand presence, and differentiate themselves from their competition.” - Derek Firth, CEO, Wikileaf
