Mike Withrow, CEO of Abattis stated “This transaction enables the company to provide a valuable service and solves a problem to an unmet need for dispensaries of medical marijuana and other botanical medicines. The IPS cards and phone apps can be branded and loyalty programs can be used so the patients save money and can maintain a budget while managing their purchases of Medical Marijuana. The system also protects dispensaries from carrying cash as funds are automatically credited to their accounts. It is becoming clear that investors understand our comprehensive business model. We are not just about cultivation. We look forward to integrating this technology into our Washington State Lab model. We believe the use of this system by dispensaries will become the minimum standard requirement for dispensaries worldwide. We wished to thank the investment community for its support through our recent period of growth.”

Rene Babi principle of IPS stated “ We see a large opportunity to provide a secure and comprehensive process that meets the needed controls, reporting, and privacy needs of the dispensaries and their patients. We expect our system to set the standard for payment and patient tracking in this industry. We feel our strategic partnership with Abattis presents tremendous opportunities in this rapidly growing and important product industry. ”
