Benchmark my performance
“As we take the lessons learned from our first cultivation site, Eco Firma Farms, and apply them to a large and growing network of cultivation assets across multiple states and countries, the PowerScore is the only tool that enables me to keep a handle on the relative performance of my portfolio. It’s essential for profitability tracking.”
