Vancouver, WA – The Hemp Industries Association today announced a new partnership with Bear Cognition, an analytics company that helps the hemp industry with data driven decisions, reporting, and evaluation from seed to shelf. A new business member based in North Charleston, South Carolina, Bear Cognition specializes in Unified & Gap Analytics and Data Science & Optimization Tools delivered via their innovative Software with a Service (SwaS™) model.
As HIA’s official analytics partner, Bear Cognition will be providing actionable intelligence to HIA members and the hemp industry nationally via two applications already under development.
A free-to-use dashboard will provide visual national and state-based intelligence using the data published in the USDA’s annual Hemp Acreage and Production Survey, which collects large amounts of raw data on the acreage, yield, production, price, and value of hemp in the United States. “This project will provide a clear national picture of where hemp is grown and for what purposes, along with the ability to drill down into the state data to compare and identify trends. In many ways, hemp is being forced to pull itself by up to agricultural commodity status by its own bootstraps, so this is going to be a useful asset for everyone in the industry.”
The second project under development is a comprehensive dashboard of current state hemp laws, regulations, and resources, that will be available as a benefit of membership in the Hemp Industries Association. The partnership also delivers significant value to HIA members through a 40% discount offered by Bear Cognition, which can collect, organize, manage, and visualize data on the hemp supply chain, PoS, e-commerce, regulations, finance, advertising, inventory, and much more. Hemp enterprises of all sizes can take advantage of their innovative SaaS-based Decision Support System Perceptivity®, which leverages greater than 250 data connectors to deliver unified and gap analytics, as well as gaining access to the Data Lab™ —a team of Certified Data Professionals who utilize cutting edge techniques and technology in Data Science and Optimization deliver actionable business intelligence that can improve your bottom line.
