Leading Florida Medical Cannabis Provider Selects D2L

Trulieve Selects Brightspace as their New Learning Platform

Global learning technology leader D2L announced today that Trulieve Cannabis Corp (CSE: TRUL & OTCQX: TCNNF) (“Trulieve” or “the company”) has selected D2L’s Brightspace platform as their learning platform for onboarding and training of their retail employees.

Trulieve is a leading medical cannabis company in Florida. Their comprehensive “seed-to-sale” operation has approximately 55% of the Florida market and their patient base is expanding by 10% month over month. Trulieve’s widespread dispensary network and large delivery fleet provide much-needed access to medical cannabis for thousands of patients daily.

“One of the challenges of a rapidly growing company is the need to train and retain good employees,” said Tim Morey, Director of Retail Operations at Trulieve. “We were attracted to Brightspace because of their solid track record with other cannabis companies, demonstrating that they truly understand our business. Additionally, Brightspace addresses our business needs given their expertise in social learning, video learning, and employee engagement. The Brightspace learning platform accelerates new employee training and helps us keep everyone on the retail team fully engaged as we adapt and continue to grow with our industry.”

Trulieve was also exploring how to replace multiple existing learning systems across different departments with a more robust and easily managed combined solution.

Morey added that, in selecting Brightspace, Trulieve found a learning platform that features:

  • Video Capability: Engagement over video was a key selling point, as Trulieve was looking for innovative and effective ways to communicate with their retail employees
  • Mobile Responsiveness: To meet the expectations of their workforce, a mobile responsive platform was critical.
  • User-Friendly: Ease of use was top of mind in order to create a frictionless learning experience for their staff.

“We’ve worked with other cannabis leaders too, and we’re excited to partner with Trulieve, Florida’s leading company in this new and rapidly-growing industry,” said Shawn Dean, VP of Enterprise Sales at D2L. “We’re confident Brightspace is the right platform for Trulieve to further develop their strong retail team and build engagement in the retail organization, in order to serve their patients with the optimal customer experience.”
