DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - January 17, 2017) - GrowGeneration Corp. ("GrowGen" or the "Company") (OTCQB: GRWG) one of the largest specialty retail hydroponic and organic gardening store chains and New Frontier Data, the authority in real time business intelligence for the cannabis industry, has partnered to provide cultivators in the sector with the necessary data to help them better understand where their time, resources, and money should be spent to best align with product demand and maximize profitability at a critical time in this growing sector.
"Everyone in this industry is looking for that extra edge to take their business to the next level. As the state markets mature and the industry is becoming more competitive, especially for growers. Cultivators who do not properly understand their business, operating environment, and customers' wants will find it increasingly difficult to remain competitive, let alone profitable. GrowGen's vast data processed through our big data engine and made actionable by our analytics will help GrowGen to provide cultivators with the competitive edge they need to succeed in the changing cannabis space," said New Frontier CEO and Founder, Giadha Aguirre De Carcer.
"We are greatly looking forward to collaborating with New Frontier to develop market-leading data and analytics. Every grower seeks to accurately anticipate what products the market will demand and be ahead of the trends. By delivering this information along with their grow supplies, GrowGen is creating a model within our industry that just doesn't exist today and gives growers the tools to manage their business in real time and in the most efficient manner," said Darren Lampert, Co-Founder and CEO of GrowGen.
GrowGen will provide historical and real time sales data to New Frontier to create a "State of the Ancillary Market" report to be released for sale in the first half of 2017. This report, which will include additional industry data collected by New Frontier, will be the first comprehensive report to use ancillary market point of sale data to analyze trends and develop insights into the cultivation market. It will enable growers to understand product trends and identify opportunities to improve performance by benchmarking their cultivation inputs.
