Operating a cannabis dispensary heavily binds to regulatory compliance, making that the number one priority for cannabis retailers intending to keep their doors open. In most US states, that includes reporting to the mandated traceability system—often Metrc. Currently enforced in 19 states, Metrc is a cloud-based reporting system that tracks cannabis production and products from seed to sale. Maintaining Metrc compliance could be daunting and complicated, but a cannabis POS system like Cova with cannabis compliance at the heart of its technology simplifies that complexity. Cova is beyond a Metrc-compatible POS and inventory management solution. Cova’s seamless two-way integration and best-in-class support make Metrc compliance a breeze for cannabis dispensaries.
How Does Cova Streamline Metrc Compliance?
Seamless Full Metrc integration
Cova seamlessly integrates with the Metrc system to report relevant data such as sales, returns, product disposals, and order intakes via an automatic API push. Unlike the manual approach requiring dispensaries to export data from their POS via a CSV file, configure it to the correct formatting, and then manually upload it to Metrc, Cova automatically sends all your sales transactions and inventory adjustments as and when they occur in real-time.
Real-Time Sync for Transactions & Adjustments
Cova integrates with Metrc via a 2-way API that automatically pushes all transactions, adjustments, and corrections to the Metrc tracking system. Unlike manual Metrc reporting, which forces retailers to wait until the end of the day to manually upload reports, Cova’s 2-way API syncs with Metrc in real-time and eliminates manual reporting that is not only time-consuming but also error-prone. Moreover, in states that mandate real-time Metrc reporting, only POS systems with live-sync Metrc capability can fulfill Metrc compliance requirements. Even if a connection issue comes up, all data is saved in Cova's offline mode and automatically syncs once you are back online.
“Although Metrc is an additional oversight for compliance, I endorse it as an inventory manager. And with Cova’s 2-way integration, I know that we are prepared for Metrc ”
Streamlined Compliance in Inventory Management
Manifest intake: Metrc compliance also involves syncing cannabis inventory data and purchase orders between your POS and Metrc account. Cova’s seamless integration allows you to easily import all received Metrc manifests to Cova without the need for making double entries, which again takes time and raises the risk of human error.
Metrc reconciliation report: Ensuring that all inventory data accurately sync with Metrc is simple via Cova’s Metrc reconciliation report. Cannabis dispensaries can generate Metrc reconciliation reports anytime to easily compare real-time data from their inventory in Cova and Metrc, spot any discrepancies at a glance, and quickly take necessary actions if needed.
