We plug in to their METRC account and download all the historical cultivation and sales data (usually in conjunction with our Cultivation Yield module). Then, growers enter (or we analyze from accounting records) the cost per grow day of cultivation.
From there, we set up a workbook where they enter what strains they are growing, how much they are diverting to manufacturing, and what products they are manufacturing.
Based on the strains grown, we know how much will be yielded. Then we also know the revenue and cost structures for flower and manufactured products sold, so we can model out the full end-to-end profitability of a full grow -> manufacture -> sell cycle. The model automatically adjusts and changes the numbers if you change the strain, number of plants, or products you’re making, so you can instantly see how adjusting anything in the plan impacts the bottom line.
Pretty cool tool and we’ve gotten some great feedback from growers!
