Included Features

Bright Buds gives dispensaries the ability to effectively, efficiently, and easily train staff through our shared Learning Management System. Our included features will create a hassle free experience for your dispensary’s training and compliance managers.

Self Paced, 24/7 Access

This course is an online virtual module, where employees will have 24/7 access. Your dispensary will no longer have to rely on in-person, or online training sessions, as our system allows those who are on-the-go to login to the Bright Buds site via smartphone or tablet. This course is self-paced, adding convenience and flexibility in the timeframe in which a user completes the course, where our member dashboard easily allows users to pick up where they left off.

Bulk User Enrollments

Bright Buds allows training and compliance managers to easily invite employees in minutes, directly through our portal. Simply log in to our site, and import employee emails in bulk. Employees will be automatically sent an invitation email, with login instructions and credentials. This saves time for training and compliance managers when creating employee accounts to our database, and is especially beneficial for dispensary teams over 50 people.

Tracking and Reporting

Most importantly, Bright Buds allows training and compliance managers to keep track of user progress and course completions. 
User reports allow manages to monitor progress each user makes in the course, and course reports gives a high-level overview of how many employees are assigned to your company, displaying course completions and course activity. Managers are also able to download and print final course completion reports for their own records.

Automatic Notifications

Each time an employee from your dispensary completes RVT, your training or compliance manager will receive an automatic email referencing the employee name, date, and time of completion. Bright Buds also allows customized notifications for your company. For example, we can send automatic notifications quarterly, reminding you to print and download your course reports for your records.

Automatic Re Enrollments

All dispensary agents in Massachusetts are required to take Responsible Vendor Training every year, and can be overwhelming for training managers to keep track of renewals for each individual employee. Bright Buds will automatically re enroll and notify each of your users every 365 days after their original enrollment date, eliminated the extra task for your dispensary training managers.
