David, navigating the selection of LIMS is a tricky process and I personally would not be willing to recommend a LIMS consultant because I have never used them. That being said, being informed is the best way to make any decision of course. So let me recommend that before you engage a consultant that you grab some of the resource guides that are on this site and browse them first and this will give you some better guidance. Try this book, if you have not already gotten it: https://www.limsforum.com/wiki_book/lab-information-management-lims-for-cannabis-quality-assurance/ and then take a look at this book: https://www.limsforum.com/wiki_book/the-complete-guide-to-lims-laboratory-informatics-summer-2017-edition/ We will have the 2019 edition out later this month.

You of course are already ahead of the game because you have a functioning lab and you have an existing LIMS and you know what you want. Maybe a LIMS consultant can help you and say with authority… Oh, such and such LIMS is great and does a great job in the Cannabis industry and is a great value… I doubt it but with any luck they may well steer you down a believable path that was a bit preordained 🙂 I know, that sounds cynical but everyone, including me always has an angle don’t they. So I guess I am advocating that you get well informed by talking to multiple vendors yourself but if you think a consultant can shortcut that process for you, check out this list: https://www.limswiki.org/index.php/LIMSWiki:Resources/Consultants There almost as many lims consultants as there are lims products.

Is there one that knows the cannabis industry? Maybe. They might have done some consulting to one or two labs but that certainly would not make for an authority. All the consultants I know only have first hand experience with the LIMS that have lots of opportunities for billable man-hours such as labware, starlims, thermo, lvs, etc. because those lims use outside consultants to do their implementations. Mind you, that is a generalization but then again…

So in summary, my advice is to check out the books we put together, contact some lims companies that say they do lims for cannabis and then dig in and get demos and proposals. At the end of the day, a consultant will end up at the same place but you can skip the cost and know that you have arrived at an answer that was driven by you.
