Software Services for the Fearless, Intrepid, and Bold Cannabis Industry

One Connected, Global, Unified Cannabis Industry

At the Feb 2018 CannaCon in Seattle, We Announced:

Dauntless Software, Inc. and Retail Technology Services have joined forces and combined our software services to create a true origin to consumption service for the entire cannabis industry dedicated 100% to the cannabis industry.
Together We Are DAUNTLESS
With full cannabis industry focus, we will be rebranding our TraceWeed and Korona products as Dauntless and roll out the 2.0 version of our end-to-end, origin to consumption solution over the coming months.
This solution will enable seamless integration between producers, processors, distributors, labs, and retailers/dispensaries as well as integrate fully with our new Global Interoperable Application Network Technology. GIANT
The power of this combined suite of services enables industry businesses to connect to any service or state system on the GIANT network and gain unprecedented functionality, insight, and knowledge on the state of our industry, consumers, and market at any given time.

Where Do You Fit in the Cannabis Eco-system?

With our full origin to consumption suite of integrated products, licensees can use a single interface to access integrated features and support services within our platform. Interfaces, features and functionality will be enabled or disabled based on which type (or multiple types) of business needs you have.

Producer
young plants at an indoor grow

Growing, harvesting, and managing plants, genetics, and plant material.

Our current product for producers is TraceWeed (specifically designed, developed, and supported by Dauntless since 2013 for the legal cannabis industry) though over the next few months, we will be rolling out version 2.0 of our PC, mobile, and label applications as well as a new browser based version of the software.

Version 2.0 will be rebranded as DAUNTLESS Grow. Take a look at our traceability page to get more details and see the competitive, feature-based pricing structure.

Processor
manufactured products

Converting raw material into manufactured smokable, edible, medicinal, or other goods.

Our current product for processors is TraceWeed (specifically designed, developed, and supported by Dauntless since 2013 for the legal cannabis industry) though over the next few months, we will be rolling out version 2.0 of our PC, mobile, and label applications as well as a new browser based version of the software.

Version 2.0 will be rebranded as DAUNTLESS Processing. Take a look at our traceability page to get more details and see the competitive, feature-based pricing structure.

Lab
lab microscope

Testing plants, material, and manufactured goods for chemical/genetic composition to ensure product quality and safety.

We have been working on a software solution for labs and over the next few months, we will be rolling out a component of our software that will address the need for labs to be connected to the overall traceability workflow.

Distributor
armored car

Transporting raw materials, manufactured goods, samples, and payments between licensed cannabis businesses.

We are currently working with distributor companies in multiple states to determine the best way to create a cannabis traceability solution that will work across jurisdictions and give both the distributor and their customers the ability to track packages like the non-cannabis solutions we know today.

Retailer/Dispensary
retail terminal

Displaying and selling manufactured, smokable, edible, medicinal, or other cannabis infused goods to consumers or patients.

Our current product for retail is Korona though over the next few months, we will be rolling out an integrated, rebranded version that will connect to more services through the GIANT network.

Version 2.0 will be rebranded as DAUNTLESS POS. Take a look at our Point of Sale page to get more details and see the competitive, feature/lane-based pricing structure.

State Seed-to-Sale Agency/System
Dauntless Shield

Monitoring and managing the rules of law for the industry as it relates to compliance and payment of taxes and licensing fees.

We believe the industry should control the data we submit to state jurisdictional monitoring systems. Our focus has been to connect GIANT into the state systems that are in existence today (BioTrack, Metrc, Leaf) and those that will crop up over the next few years. Ultimately, we will shift the TraceWeed brand over to the state system level to offer the reporting functionality "out-of-box" for the states so they no longer have to create elaborate central systems in order to monitor the industry.

We will also continue to encourage new legal jurisdictions to learn from past industry mistakes in this area and encourage other providers to offer solutions connected to GIANT to alleviate the possibility of future issues like we experienced in Washington State, 2017/18

Check back in a few months to see our ultimate solution.

Green2Go Testimonial from Steve Lee

We shot this impromptu testimonial from Steve comparing his experience with Dauntless Korona with that of our competitors at the height of a busy day at his retail store on Feb 21, 2018. The ambient noise is a bit intrusive, but we think it is great to hear the happy consumers.

NFC Enabled App
TraceWeed is state-of-the-art, affordable, usable traceability for the cannabis industry focused primarily on the Producer and Processor functionality. Functionality for Labs and Distribution will be out soon and our 2.0 architecture will be launching within a short time with the Dauntless branding.
When you have TraceWeed as your traceability solution, you will more effectively manage your full plant and product lifecycle including seeds, tissue, clones, plants (and mothers), harvests, products, quality testing, samples, waste management, shipping, and receiving.
TraceWeed’s PC and mobile applications along with our custom label designer work together smoothly in a way that maps to your business needs and include time saving features and exceptional support.
Unlike most of our competitors, TraceWeed is designed to meet YOUR business needs and passes only the appropriate data through to state compliancy systems when necessary rather than reskinning the state offered system and using its backend for data storage (relinquishing control of your data).
TraceWeed Demo
TraceWeed Service Highlights
  • Intuitive mobile and PC integrated applications that do more than just compliance reporting so that you can be more productive doing what is most important: growing your business.
  • Central state compliancy system integration so that you can meet licensing traceability requirements with a lot less hassle and a lot more automation, giving you a better ROI.

  • Exceptional support services available when you need them. We answer the phone when you call and we work with you to resolve any issues that come up in a timely fashion as fast as we can and give you a time frame for when it can be done. You don't have to wait for days to hear from our team or talk to someone out of the country that doesn't know anything about the software like you will with some of our competitors.
  • TraceWeed was developed in conjunction with WA cannabis producers and processors in order to get the functionality flow to work how you actually do the work (not some flow thought up by techs).
  • Dauntless is an agile development company so new features and improvements are constantly pushed to our clients and automatically installed on your PC and mobile devices as they become available.

GIANT Connection Diagram

What is GIANT?

The acronym represents our Global Interoperable Application Network Technology platform.
  • A cannabis eco-system enabling a unified global cannabis industry
  • A connection to every segment of the cannabis industry including jurisdictional state systems
  • An open API to list, market, interop, and sell value-added services to licensed cannabis businesses and operations
  • A marketplace for licensed cannabis businesses and services across a variety of market segments

Why GIANT?

Because this is an industry with the potential to become the transformative model for every other industry around the world.
  • Because it saves cost by removing the need to create and manage multiple API connections across the industry
  • It creates efficiency in the Industry by enabling licensees to subscribe to GIANT services automatically
  • So cannabis can grow into a connected global industry through an automated subscription marketplace

Why Now?

Cannabis is the fastest growing multi-billion dollar industry on the planet and the current business environment is not controlled by the industry.
  • The industry needs to take control of the central data required by jurisdictional state systems
  • Disruption at the jurisdictional reporting level of the industry should not create disruption for ongoing business operations
  • A single interop system is needed to keep the data flowing throughout the network and across the eco-system
  • Licensees need to focus on creating product not on managing software
  • Rapid industry growth demands dynamic, expansive features and services that communicate, transact, and share functionality and data (selectively and securely) across multiple jurisdictions
  • The industry needs more comprehensive data to understand current ROI and make informed business decisions
  • Cooperation across the eco-system is critical for the industry to grow

Who can Benefit?

Every cannabis business with the desire to grow strategic partnerships and believe in our vision of: “One connected, global, unified cannabis industry”.

If you want to be connected, contact our team today!

Rolling out GIANT at CannaCon in Seattle (Feb 15-17, 2018) was fun!

Hardware
TapNTrace Logo
Dauntless Traceability Services (TraceWeed) may be implemented without additional hardware (other than a PC, a badge scanner, employee badges, and an internet connection) and will still provide more innovative functionality, security, and return on investment than our competitors.
However, we provide an automated capability our competitors can't provide, when you add an integrated mobile device, NFC and RFID tags, smart card login security, Bluetooth printers, and more.
Hardware is optional, you only need to purchase the amount of hardware you feel is needed, and you can always add more hardware and expand your automation as you grow your business.
For the POS, there is a hardware requirement in order to secure your cash flow, age verification, ringing up sales, and money drops. Much of the POS hardware can be leased through our hardware as a service method which brings down the initial costs of deploying a world class enterprise point of sale at your stores. Please email info@dauntlessinc.com to get more information about our POS hardware as a service feature.
Listed below (with purchasing links) is the hardware we recommend for TraceWeed because we feel that it provides the most value for the price and has been tested over a number of years with our various system components. All of it is off-the-shelf hardware that can be purchased from any seller and set up by you to work with our system with very little effort.

Chip Embedded Tags

Clients will need a minimum of 10 tags for user authenticated system login, otherwise, tags are an optional feature for increasing automated traceability.
Automation starts by adding tags to your service. We can tag virtually anything with NFC, RFID, or a combination of NFC+RFID tags.
In the past, we have sold the tags for up to $0.75 or $1.00 each. All of our tags are reusable 10,000 times or more, but we wanted to bring the price down even more by partnering with GoToTags to enable our clients to purchase tags directly through them and reduce the cost of the tags down to as little at $0.35 or even $0.25 each.
To ensure uniqueness, functionality, and integration into our system. You will need to have the tags encoded by GoToTags at a cost of $0.05 per tag and have the encoding file generated by our system at a cost of $0.05 per tag.
This will drop the cost of a box of 200 tags from $150.00 ($0.75/ea) to $90.00 ($0.45/ea) and as prices come down or your volumes go up, you will automatically be able to take advantage of the new price breaks from one of the primary tag suppliers in North America.
And you have all kinds of choices on form factors! Go to our Tag Encoding page to get more details and order tags at a huge savings!

USB NFC Reader for PC

Clients will need a minimum of 1 scanner for the main PC running our system (unless the PC has a built-in NFC reader).
We spent a lot of time working with multiple NFC readers on the market before settling on the Sony RC-S380 because it adhered best to industry standards, had the least number of compatibility issues, and mapped to all of our current and future needs.
In fact, Sony has an ipad version of the reader that has just released which will integrate into the Apple version of our software as we build it in the future (now that Apple has joined the NFC world).
To save you money, we recommend purchasing the Sony NFC reader through Amazon (or other outlets) directly for $32-$48 (You can get it through us for $55.00+tax/shipping).
You will also need to install this driver for the Sony reader (don't use the latest drivers, we are in the process of upgrading to them for Windows 10): Sony NFC Reader Driver for PC

Mobile NFC Scanning Device

For the 1.7 version of our TraceWeed product, clients will need a minimum of 1 mobile device for functionality available only on the mobile interface. For the 2.0 version of TraceWeed and all other TapNTrace products, the mobile device is optional for those that want to add mobility to their traceability solution.
When shopping for a mobile device, be sure it is NFC enabled (check the specs before purchase) and a Windows device (for now). The device doesn't need to be unlocked as our system uses your wifi connection. Our recommended model is the Lumia 640 as it has a nice sized screen, NFC, a decent camera, and can be upgraded to Windows 10.
To save you money, we recommend purchasing the Microsoft Lumia phone through Amazon (or other outlets) directly for $40-$150 (You can get a Lumia 640 through us for $150.00+tax/shipping).

Zebra QLn220 Bluetooth Mobile Direct Thermal Printer

Our system will work with any Windows compatible printer. This printer adds mobility with direct bluetooth connectivity but is optional.
When you want to print quickly and on the move, this is a fantastic printer that can hook on to your belt, connect to your mobile device, and print labels on the fly. The price on Amazon is about $750.00.
When purchasing this printer, please note that they don't sell the charging cable with the printer so you will need to get it separate and it will add another $20-$50 to your overall cost.
To save you money, we recommend purchasing the Zebra QLn220 Bluetooth Mobile Printer and charger through Amazon (or other outlets) directly for $800 (with charger) (You can get them through us for $900.00+tax/shipping).

Zebra QLn220 LD-R7BL5B 2"x1" PolyPro 4000D Labels (350 per roll)

A requirement for QLn220 printers.
Working in the environments we do, the PolyPro 4000D polypropylene thermal labels will hold up in temperatures of up to 131 degrees (F) and are resistent to water, scratching, and smearing. They will fade in direct sunlight after about 60 days so they are not recommended for outdoor grows without taking precautions to prevent fading.
To save you money, we recommend purchasing the 2"x1" PolyPro 4000D Labels through the zps store (or other outlets) directly for $3.12 per roll (You can get it through us for $3.98+tax/shipping per roll).

Zebra GX420t Bluetooth Thermal Transfer Printer

Our system will work with any Windows compatible printer. This printer adds direct bluetooth connectivity but is optional.
This printer was selected (along with the ribbons and labels listed below) to print for outdoor grows and still enable connection to mobile devices (through bluetooth). The price on Barcode Discount is about $640.00 (including shipping and taxes).
This printer will need both ribbons and labels to function and has the ability to print 4 inch wide labels as well as the standard 3 inch labels we recommend for tagging.
To save you money, we recommend purchasing the Zebra GX420t Bluetooth Thermal Transfer Printer through Barcode Discount (or other outlets) directly for $553. Be sure to order the bluetooth version of the printer if you want to connect your mobile device (You can get it through us for $700.00+tax/shipping).

Zebra GX420t 17154 2"x1" PolyPro 3000T Labels (2,100 per roll)

A requirement for GX420t printers.
Working in the environments we do, the PolyPro 3000T polypropylene thermal labels will hold up in temperatures of up to 200 degrees (F) for 1-2 years outdoors and are resistent to water, scratching, and smearing. They will NOT fade in direct sunlight and are recommended for outdoor grows.
To save you money, we recommend purchasing the 2"x1" PolyPro 3000T Labels through the zps store (or other outlets) directly for $17.87 per roll (You can get it through us for $22.86+tax/shipping per roll).

Zebra GX420t 6100 Wax/Resin 2.52" Ribbon (244 feet)

A requirement for GX420t printers.
Working in the environments we do, labels printed from this ribbon (especially PolyPro labels) will hold up in harsh outdoor environments and provide water, chemical, scratch, and smear resistance.
To save you money, we recommend purchasing the 6100 Wax/Resin 2.52" Ribbon through the zps store (or other outlets) directly for $2.50 each (You can get it through us for $3.20+tax/shipping each).
Dauntless POS (Korona)
retail terminal

Our current product for retail is Korona though over the next few months, we will be rolling out an integrated, rebranded version that will connect to more services through the GIANT network.

Version 2.0 will be rebranded as DAUNTLESS POS.

There is a lot more but we are still in the process of migrating our website and data to Dauntless, check back soon!

If you want a simple, automated, enterprise level POS for your retail store or dispensary, contact our team today!

Green2Go Testimonial from Steve Lee

We shot this impromptu testimonial from Steve comparing his experience with Dauntless Korona with that of our competitors at the height of a busy day at his retail store on Feb 21, 2018. The ambient noise is a bit intrusive, but we think it is great to hear the happy consumers.

We have over 100 clients using our products every day...

Dauntless State (to inherit the TraceWeed brand)
TraceWeed State System

We are currently focused on the industry data solution which is GIANT and will then roll our new State reporting system that pulls from industry data for States to monitor.

That system will be branded TraceWeed and will be a mechanism for legal jurisdictions to tell the industry their rules in a discoverable place, consolidate the licensees and manage active and inactive licenses within their jurisdictions, and monitor the data flowing within the industry between licensees. All on a thin web browser client that only the State has access to (and only the data required by the State).

About Us
The Original Dauntless Logo
The Original Dauntless Logo (2013-2016)

Dauntless was founded in 2013 by former Microsoft employees with a common interest and purpose in developing a customizable enterprise level traceability system and offer it at an affordable price.

Over time our vision evolved around the use of the latest emerging technologies to enable worldwide traceability.

Our goal is to provide an easy to use supply chain tracking system to trace goods from origin to consumption using RFID technologies.

or simply...

Tap. Tap. Trace.

Using RFID and NFC as the foundation, we have developed an end-to-end traceability service (TapNTrace) that can be customized and applied to virtually any industry around the world.

Initial efforts were focused on agriculture and livestock including free-ranging cattle, swine, tulips, cocoa, and coffee on three continents.

Eventually, the team expanded into the local (Washington State) legal marijuana industry and dedicated a significant amount of time and resources into adapting our TapNTrace service to provide the best traceability tools for the newly established and rapidly growing/changing cannabis industry (TraceWeed).

Our success in cannabis and our agile software as a service (SaaS) model has given us the opportunity to work in a number of other industries with the need for traceability over the years. To this end, we have spent time scoping, designing, developing, and deploying solutions for multiple clients and industries both big and small over the last four years.

Currently we are working to improve, develop, and/or deploy service solutions for cannabis, agriculture (both rural and urban), livestock, wildlife, and manufactured goods (like automobiles).

Our base TapNTrace architecture service (the base for all of our services) includes the ability to combine client needed functionality using NFC, UHF RFID, LF RFID, Barcode, and QR code technology in the following products:

  • TraceWeed Mobile
  • TraceWeed PC
  • TraceWeed Label Designer
  • TraceAgri Mobile
  • TraceAgri PC
  • TraceAgri Label Designer
  • Pilot Projects (to be announced)
