FlorPass is the perfect solution for us to deliver on our promise of exceptional user experience without sacrificing functionality or security."
FlorPass charges a transaction fee based on a percentage of sales through the system's e-commerce platform. Alternate Health anticipates strong revenues based on the growing patient base and Liberty's strong brand presence across the state.
"The Florida Department of Health's approval of FlorPass represents a turning point for accountability and compliance in medical cannabis sales throughout the state," adds Dr. Murphy. "FlorPass provides state regulators and health officials access to the most comprehensive data analytics, with transparent tax reporting and unmatched security protocol."
