Contending that some local governments create obstacles in a system that requires mandated contracts between municipalities and cannabis businesses, proponents, past regulators and legislators are calling for a legislative committee to offer additional supervision over these required agreements, the Worcester Business Journal (WBJ) in Massachusetts reported Tuesday (May 11). Much controversy has surrounded so-called “host community agreements,” with industry members claiming for a long time that talks between municipalities and cannabis businesses are many times single-sided as local governments have all the negotiating might.
FinTech ENGAGE, which streamlines industrial workflows, has launched ENGAGE E2E (end-to-end) to help digitize the end-to-end financial transaction process, according to a press release. The new technology will merge eInvoicing with ENGAGE’s eTicketing program. That will allow companies to merge software, get rid of redundant processes, automate workflows and more, the release stated. The platform was developed through a partnership between ENGAGE and EP Energy, which has worked to do away with the industry’s old-style workflows, according to the release. The partnership will use ENGAGE’s eTicketing software to validate transactions. The two companies also worked on developing an eInvoicing software.
