Denver, CO, July 29, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- Helix TCS, Inc. (OTCQB: HLIX) (the “Company”), the leading provider of critical infrastructure services to the legal cannabis industry, including seed to sale tracking, government traceability, and point of sale through its BioTrackTHC subsidiary, was identified by CannabizMedia as the leading provider of cannabis point of sale software by market share in the US for the 2nd time in a row. The point of sale report (the “Report”) states that BioTrackTHC is the leading retail point of sale provider in the US cannabis industry based on a 24% market share.
According to the report, market competition in retail point-of-sale increased markedly, with 43 providers in 2018 jumping to 68 providers in 2019. Despite this, BioTrack added 110 new customer locations, which is a 27% increase, the highest percentage growth out of the top 3 providers, demonstrating that BioTrack’s cannabis software sales are outpacing simple market growth.
“Opportunities abound in the software, data, and compliance space even as the competitive landscape sees rapid growth in new entrants in some segments, like retail POS. We still have generated significant growth over the last 6 months in this segment, and our other segments such as government traceability and cultivation have not seen significant increases in new entrants,” said Patrick Vo, CEO of BioTrackTHC. “The report shows that we were the only company in the space to grow by triple digits in customers and sustain market share leadership in the two largest emerging markets in the U.S., Oklahoma and California.”
Zachary L. Venegas, Executive Chairman and CEO of Helix TCS, Inc. added: “As we continue to grow our revenues and service offering, we are translating our market share into a unique competitive position to continually better serve our clients with an integrated platform, which allows our clients to mitigate risk and support their growth.”
