Q & A

1. How does Cova POS help with monthly federal and provincial compliance reports?

Cova tracks all the required data and easily generates 1-click compliance reports in the correct format for both Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries (MBLL) and the Liquor, Gaming and Cannabis Authority (LGCA). Manitoba cannabis retailers can also use Cova’s diagnostic report to review details and avoid or investigate any discrepancies.

2. Which Cova POS features help Manitoba cannabis retailers simplify compliance?

Cova’s built-in compliance protocols include an integrated ID scanner that confirms customer age and verifies each ID is valid. A purchase limit gauge monitors cannabis quantity being sold (including product equivalencies) and prevents overselling. Managers can control operational hours, employee permissions, and security system integrations. Cova has all the automatic functionality you need to combat fraud and reduce the chance of human error.

3. How does Cova POS help streamline my cannabis store operations?

Cova’s easy-to-use sales tools allow your budtenders find product info quickly and complete transactions seamlessly. The tablet-based POS is highly intuitive and processes sales with remarkable speed. The system has an offline mode that ensures even if you have unreliable Wi-Fi, transactions can continue uninterrupted. Detailed reports-on-demand and real-time mobile dashboards help owners make fast, informed decisions to improve efficiency and store profits.

4. What support is available for first-time cannabis retailers in Manitoba?

Cova offers the most comprehensive and reliable support in the industry. We've helped hundreds of retailers across Canada launch successful stores, and we’re happy to go above and beyond to share the industry best practices and insights we’ve learned along the way. Our premier launch team does more than set up your POS system and train your staff. Me make sure you know how to leverage our tech to run an efficient, compliant operation with confidence. Our in-house ongoing support team is available with remarkable response time via phone, chat, or e-mail. Cova is always on call for emergencies.

5. Why do most retailers choose Cova over other cannabis POS systems?

Beware of tech startups with limited experience and resources; they may not be able to keep up with frequent changes or survive challenging times. Cova has the agility and entrepreneurial spirit that suits the cannabis industry, and the retail tech experience to back it up. Question any system that claims to be the leading or #1 POS without the numbers to back it up. Cova has worked with hundreds of Canadian cannabis retailers, big and small; the experience we’ve gained is reflected in the service we provide, and the best practices we share when we help you launch your store.

6. What sets Cova apart from POS systems that are not built for the cannabis industry?

POS systems optimized for restaurants and other retail stores may be cheaper, but they aren’t built for cannabis compliance. The manual work you’ll have to do compiling provincial and federal reports will cost you hours. Human error, without purpose-built automation to keep it in check, could cost you your license. Cova is a compliance-first company. We know Health Canada and LGCA regulations inside and out, and we always stay on top of changes to rules and reporting.

“The time Cova saves us and the resources it frees up make a real impact. Inventory and product management take no time; 5-10 minutes to complete what took a week with our old system. Compliance reporting in real-time means we don’t have to push reports out at the end of day. Data governance and record keeping are simpler. Even making a sale is quicker. Cova’s system is efficient.”
