Akerna has tracked $20 billion in cannabis sales over 33 states, 14 countries, and three languages since its inception in 2010, and remains at the forefront of the cannatech space.

MJ Platform achieves SAP Certification
The company is proud to announce that MJ Platform has reached SAP Certification, in integration with SAP NetWeaver.
To reach this point, MJ Platform’s custom developed ABAP add-on was confirmed for deployment on SAP’s own enterprise resource software, SAP ERP 6.0. The compatibility between the two softwares ensures solutions for multi-state operators, and brings the best of Akerna and SAP together. ABAP is a high-level programming language created by SAP that allows large corporations to customize the SAP ERP. This customization allows for company-specific workflows, including financial management.
MJ Platform’s shiny new SAP certification significantly increases its ERP offerings, which include finances and traditional compliance tracking. Users of the platform will be able to examine financial data points, such as the cost of goods sold across multiple facilities and states. The software generates reports at an organizational level, and makes data easy to review.
“To see Akerna being recognized by SAP and being granted this certification is exciting for us at Cresco Labs. At Cresco Labs, we are going down the path of deploying SAP ERP as a critical platform that enables our growth. We know that a vital aspect of meeting this objective is integrating with the Akerna seed-to-sale platform in some of the key states we operate in,” says Cresco Labs Chief Information Officer, Mo Dastagir.
Akerna announced the launch of MJ Retail in November 2020, and CEO Jessica Billingsley said: “MJ Platform is integral to the success of our clients’ business. Launching MJ Retail was the next logical step to support our growing number of clients who are focused on delivering an exceptional customer experience no matter how customers shop,” said Jessica Billingsley, chief executive officer, Akerna. “As the in-store experience continues to evolve MJ Retail has been designed to help our clients accelerate and streamline customer checkout, creating an optimal customer experience.”
Billingsley was equally excited about the SAP certification, and said: “Earning this SAP certification sets us apart from our competitors and confirms our status as a leader in enterprise-level cannabis software solutions,” says Akerna Chief Executive Officer, Jessica Billingsley. “With this SAP-certified integration, we can provide our clients with in-depth ledger information that helps us stand out from other seed-to-sale software providers.”
Akerna also offers a complete suite of professional consulting services and data analytics for businesses as well as solo sciences, MJ Freeway, Leaf Data Systems, Trellis, and Ample Organics.
