Orchid and NASGW Celebrate SCOPE CLX and State Firearm Compliance

Hartford, CT – Orchid, the leader in FFL technology, payment processing, and firearm and explosives compliance services, proudly announced that the National Association of Sporting Goods Wholesalers (NASGW) has honored the company for its support of the NASGW SCOPE CLX program. The award was presented during the NASGW Expo’s annual awards dinner, which took place last week in Columbus, Ohio. 

Jon Rydberg, Orchid’s Chief Executive Officer, expressed the significance of NASGW’s SCOPE CLX solution, stating, “Our customers have long-awaited retail business intelligence as robust and accurate as SCOPE. CLX uniquely offers independent data capture and integrity of information reporting that is led and widely adopted by leaders of the firearm supply chain.  We are honored to be one of the few retail Point-of-Sale providers to receive an award for standing by NASGW’s continued pursuit to identify actionable consumer trends.” 

The NASGW Expo annual award dinner was one of many events held last week and for the benefit of the entire firearm supply chain. In attendance were the majority of NASGW’s wholesale distributors, leading manufacturers and technology and compliance leaders such as Orchid. Retail business intelligence and NASGW supported state compliance was one of the many topics of conversation accompanying the promotion and purchase of firearm products.

Orchid’s onsite team held several meetings with its distribution partners, focused on expanded integrations designed to put inventory at the fingertips of its retail POS customers and firearm shoppers. Together with the leaders of SCOPE, the group also discussed how manufacturing, distribution and retail customers could further benefit from access to the SCOPE platform via Orchid POS or the firm’s Orchid eState which offers no-cost state compliance services to all wholesaler members of the association.
