March Networks Targets Cannabis Market

By: Sean Patton, Published on May 10, 2018

Will the next March Networks customer appreciation event be held a steakhouse or at a Taco Bell at 2 am? Can March sell the types of systems to the cannabis industry it has for years to banking and retail?

In this report, we will examine the challenges selling to the cannabis industry, and March's potential strengths and weaknesses, based on a conversation we had with them.

ISC West Marketing

March's large display in their booth at ISC West proclaimed "Weed make great partners". They even had what appeared to be a live plant in the booth.
