Bi-Mart first implemented Orchid eBound™ in 2019 to drive compliance efficiencies and enhance the customer experience.
“Two years ago, we selected Orchid for their dedication to compliance, efficiency and industry-unique ownership,” said Bi-Mart’s General Merchandising Manager, Todd Watson. “Orchid eBound™ delivered an immediate compliance solution that improved the overall shopping experience in our retail stores and matched our commitment to providing real value for our customers. We are pleased to expand our use of Orchid software to additional Bi-Mart locations and continue growing our positive relationship with Orchid into the future.”
“Orchid eBound™ makes managing compliance easy,” added Donald Oldenburg, Bi-Mart Divisional Merchandising Manager. “The e4473 and built-in checkpoints make firearm transactions quick while limiting errors and compliance risk, and the Orchid team is always responsive to questions from our staff.”
Orchid eBound™ is a cloud-based FFL A&D Bound Book and e4473 application designed to improve operational efficiency and reduce costs. Integrated with Orchid eStorage™ and Orchid partner, 4473 Cloud, eBound enables FFL management to access serialized inventory, 4473s and other ATF-related documentation from any connected desktop, tablet or mobile device with ease.
