Joining modern software capabilities and accounting best practices tailored specifically to the cannabis space.

October 13, 2021: Elgin, IL PKF Mueller, an award-winning Chicago area CPA firm, announces a strategic partnership with Broadleaf Software, LLC., developers of a leading platform for cannabis cultivation management. This partnership will help operators produce standardized cost accounting and financial reporting and leverage a software platform designed specifically to capture the operational and financial data needed to improve decision-making, increase revenues, and maximize profits.

“Cannabis is still a young space, and there is no playbook for success. Our goal with this partnership is to bring best practices and proven strategies to help operators,” said Taylor Schuck, CPA and PKF Mueller’s Life Sciences Niche team leader. “Cultivators are operating primarily on manually compiled spreadsheets and hand-written logs. By automating those processes and producing key reports and KPI data, operators will have better data, more accurate reports, and will finally be able to produce real-time financial data.”

This platform aims to assist cultivators in improving efficiency across their teams, delivering a consistent, high-quality product and growing their operations.

Eldon Brown, CEO of Broadleaf, says, “Accurate financial reporting is impossible without operational data. Broadleaf captures that data and makes an immediate impact across every part of the business because every team gets better data sooner. It also ensures that timely and accurate data is reported to the State, avoiding fines and penalties. Leveraging the Broadleaf platform enables them to stay ahead of the competition.”
