Retail | Managing Product Categories with BioTrack

Product Categories are used to keep your inventory organized. Categories in BLAZE® can be customized to match your needs and can be as specific as you need or want to make them. Every product in your inventory will need to have a category assigned.

When managing your categories, you'll see the following descriptors:

    • Category Name: Chosen by the Retailer to describe the product group.
    • Category Type: Either Cannabis or Non-Cannabis.
    • BioTrack Category: Referred to in BioTrack as “Inventory Type”. 
    • Cannabis Type: Chosen by the Retailer to describe the product.
    • Category Unit: Description of measurement on how the products in the category are sold (i.e. pre-packaged unit or by weight)
    • Low Inventory Threshold (optional): A notification will be sent when the inventory count reaches the threshold value input.
