Q & A

1. Does Cova provide cannabis eCommerce and online menu solutions?

Cova integrates with popular online menu platforms like Leafly Pickup, I Heart Jane, and Weedmaps to help Montana dispensaries display their current menus on major cannabis marketplaces.  However, if you choose Cova eCommerce, you'll have a fully hosted website dedicated to online sales, and it comes with advanced search engine optimization (SEO) capabilities. When customers place orders through Cova eComm, they will be instantly sent to the POS system, and inventory will be automatically updated. This ensures that your customers always have accurate information about what cannabis products are available at your dispensary.

2. How does Cova help Montana dispensaries with compliance challenges?

Cova’s dispensary software seamlessly integrates with Metrc, meaning all your sales and refunds are reported in real time, adjustments with Metrc reason codes are automatically synced, and manifest imports are an easy process with no need for double entry. Cova’s POS system has built-in ID scanning to verify age and purchase limit alerts to prevent over-selling. All edible and concentrate equivalences are automatically calculated to reduce human error.

3. Which POS features help Montana cannabis retailers operate more efficiently?

Cova’s highly intuitive user interface helps your budtenders access product info on the fly and create orders quickly. Fast transaction speeds and a backup Offline Mode ensure your dispensary team can keep up with peak volume even if Wi-Fi fails. The robust back-end management gives retailers complete control over employee permissions and access to reports-on-demand (plus mobile dashboards) that provide the insights you need to make confident business decisions.

4. Does Cova work for both a Provisioning Center and a Recreational Cannabis Dispensary?

Cova offers true high-volume and multi-location management. With our robust system you can control inventory, pricing, promotions, and permissions across multiple stores all from one central location. Our POS is made for operations of all sizes; it’s easy to use first first-time retailers, and ready to scale when you are. Open APIs, and plug-and-play integrations with top cannabis retail tech partners—analytics, security, ERP, CRM, e-comm, delivery—make it a top choice for multi-location retailers across the U.S.

5. What sets Cova apart from other POS systems?

Generic POS systems aren’t going to help Montana dispensaries with the critical challange of staying compliant, or provide a competitive customer experience. A built-for-cannabis POS is important, but not all are created equal. Beware of companies that are tech startups with limited resources; they can’t always keep up with a rapidly evolving industry or survive challenging times. Cova has the entrepreneurial spirit and agility needed to keep pace and respond to customer feedback, along with the experience and resources of an established retail tech company. We leverage proven, enterprise-capable infrastructure to provide the industry’s most reliable and secure platform.

6. Does Cova offer any digital or cashless payment solutions?

Cova Pay offers cashless payment solutions like PIN Debit, ACH, Credit Cards (Canada), and branded Gift Cards. These offer convenience and various other benefits for cannabis businesses. Customers can easily pay with trusted methods, and dispensary businesses can maximize revenue by allowing customers to freely add to their baskets without worrying about cash. Customers tend to spend 25% more when they are not limited by the amount of cash they may be carrying on them. Cashless payments also enhance safety, efficiency, and the overall shopping experience by reducing robbery risks and inaccuracies and offering faster transactions.

“The experience Cova brings to the table makes a big difference, from launch and ongoing support, to the user-friendly design and the reliability of the POS.”

Eleanor Gomez, General Manager California
