Technology is used in a variety of industries but recently has made strides among manufacturers, wholesalers, and retailers in the tobacco plus event industry. This industry includes everything from cigars, vapes, hookah, CBD, and much more. There hasn’t been much technology used in the tobacco plus event industry in the past, but that is changing as the way we do business continues to evolve.
What New Technology is the Industry Using?
- Age Checking Technology
- Electronic Business Cards
- Business Texting
Age Checking Technology
There are certain age regulations when it comes to the tobacco plus industry. In the United States, you must be 21+ in order to purchase tobacco or tobacco-related products. Retail shops are required to check your ID before you purchase tobacco, alcohol, etc and online retailers are required to verify age.
AgeChecker.net is a customizable age checking technology that verifies customer information at check-out with their identity network. Nearly 90% of customers are verified in seconds and can continue to purchase on your site. This technology helps you stay compliant with FDA age requirements, merchant account policies, and state laws.
Electronic Business Cards
An electronic business card, also known as a virtual or digital business card, is becoming a popular way to share contact information. It’s an easy, fast way to share or receive contact information by tapping the card on a mobile device. Businesses are slowly moving away from paper business cards to these electronic business cards.
Not only do electronic business cards save you time and money, it’s also a great alternative to using paper business cards. Electronic business cards are great for events like tradeshows. As people come by your booth, just tap the card to their phone and they will receive your information.
