Q & A

1. How does Cova POS simplify compliance for New Mexico cannabis retailers?

Cova's integrated ID scanner verifies customer age and flags invalid or expired medical marijuana cards. A purchase limit gauge helps budtenders keep an eye on legal limits, and won’t let them sell oversell. This automation greatly reduces human error and the risk of infractions, fines, or license suspension. The back-end Cova hub allows dispensary owners to set operational hours, establish limits on discounts, and set different levels of employee permissions.

2. What level of integration does Cova have with BioTrack?

Cova offers full API integration and 2-way sync with BioTrack, the state marijuana traceability system in New Mexico. All sales and refunds are reported as per state requirements. All inventory adjustments made in Cova POS are also synced automatically with BioTrack. Seamless integration means time-saving automation that reduces manual work and human error.

3. What hardware and operating system does Cova use?

Cova POS uses a back-end web-based hub and a front-of-house touchscreen sales tool for budtenders. The back-end management portion will run on any device you choose to access it from (PC, Mac, laptop, desktop). The budtender sales tools run on Android tablets, which can free your sales team from behind the counter to meet customers anywhere on the floor as they shop, and even take orders on the go, reducing the wait time for customers. Cova makes hardware recommendations rather than selling you a specific tablet, so you can shop for the best price and right fit for your dispensary. 

4. Does Cova POS integrate with online menus like Weedmaps and Leafly?

Cova has seamless integrations with menu and marketplace platforms including Weedmaps, Leafly, and I Heart Jane. Our POS integration allows you to showcase your menu, reflecting your actual up-to-date inventory, on the biggest cannabis websites around, where potential consumers are searching for dispensaries in New Mexico. Cova’s open API even allows for custom menu integration and e-commerce solutions. With Cova, you can manage all orders from all sources in one place.

5. What kind of training and ongoing support does Cova offer New Mexico dispensaries?

6. How does Cova POS help with inventory management and auditing?

Cova POS is optimized for inventory management with convenient features like batch scanning and bulk adjustments, saving New Mexico retailers a lot of time and improving accuracy. Cova’s reorder report forecasts days of stock remaining so you can replenish fast-moving products efficiently. Our innovative Rooms feature lets retailers assign inventory to different locations in the same store, like the back room and the sales floor, making it easier to manage FIFO and count products come auditing time.
