FloEnvy is a culmination of experience and industry need. Our team came together to offer an efficient solution to a growing problem.
With each client, we begin with the understanding that every team is different and that data is the best tool to unlock each cultivation's potential.
In June of 2016, Mike and Carol Steinmann visited several cultivation facilities and noticed employees utilizing clipboards, whiteboards, and other antiquated tracking methods. After conceiving a prototype, they reached out to cultivation owners to sit down and assess the viability of a new product specifically for labor ROI. Nobody had a reliable method for tracking their labor force using data. After years of running a tech company together, they knew the absolute importance of tracking labor costs and efficiency but found no solution that made it easy to do so for cannabis cultivators.
A few months later Mike and Carol reached out to a long-time family friend, Michael Gu, knowing he would be the perfect fit to lead the development of the production tracking system. He would later help FloEnvy become the first Seed to Data solution, tracking every action on the ground for true business intelligence.
The FloEnvy team is genuinely excited to be a part of the epic cannabis movement and is passionate about contributing their innovative platform to streamline operations and aid in the growth of the entire cannabis industry.
