The solution streamlines licensing workflow and integrates with the seed-to-sale system

Columbus, Ohio, Santa Clara, Calif., Pune, India


The Ohio Department of Commerce has selected Persistent Systems (BSE & NSE: PERSISTENT) to design and build the e-licensing system for tracking various industry licenses required by the Ohio Medical Marijuana Control Program. The system, expected to go live in early 2018, will integrate with the State’s larger eLicensing platform as well as the State’s payment gateway (CBOSS). Persistent will leverage its collaborative development center in Dublin, Ohio to set up the team.

Ohio Department of Commerce Release

The seed-to-sale system is mandated by House Bill 523, the enabling legislation for the Ohio Medical Marijuana Control Program. The eLicensing system will be used to track licensees and their employees and was selected after a competitive bid process. The entire statement can be found on the Ohio Department of Commerce website here.

Sudhir Kulkarni, President Digital at Persistent Systems

“The eLicensing platform is another great example of how smart government initiatives are embracing digital transformation for more efficient workflow. It also shows the high level of integration required to work alongside other existing systems and how an agile and innovative approach to development can bring speed to even the most stringent programs of the state.”
