Orchid eState Restrictions Software Protects FFLs from Violations

HARTFORD, CT (November 22, 2022) – The leader in FFL technology, payment processing, and compliance services, Orchid LLC is excited to announce new product categories to its state restrictions software, Orchid eState. In addition to a new ‘firearms’ category, the application now includes magazines and silencers, all three of which are accessible in the software interface or can be called electronically via an API.

“Compliance has never been more important, so it’s critical we provide licensees with the best software application possible,” said Philip Milks, attorney at FFL Law and Orchid VP of Regulatory Services. “Designed for all FFL types, eState can be used to prevent illegal firearm purchases, ATF violations, and revocation. Simply select the applicable location, product type, and related attributes to quickly view applicable restrictions before initiating a sale or processing an order.”

Available as a cloud-based application or API-driven integration, Orchid eState feeds state firearm restriction data directly into your point of sale (POS), enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, or ecommerce website by ZIP code, firearm characteristic, and product UPC. The application can also be accessed manually for as-needed research.

“Anderson is proud to offer a wide range of products to gun enthusiasts around the country,” said Jeff Bryant, ERP Manager at Anderson Manufacturing. “As our ecommerce business has grown, we needed help maintaining state-level compliance in the ever-changing regulatory landscape. That’s what drew us to Orchid eState.”

Orchid eState can integrate with popular POS and ERP systems, including Epicor, NetSuite, Fishbowl, Odoo, SAP, Sage, Oracle and others.

“Why risk managing compliance on your own?” said Orchid VP of Sales & Implementation, Shaun Phelan. “With our Retail Enterprise and Suite packages, licensees can implement eState and other Orchid software to better serve and protect their operations.”
