ONTARIO CANNABIS RETAIL POS & INVENTORY MANAGEMENT

 

The POS Trusted by 88% of Ontario Cannabis Stores

Built for Canadian cannabis retail, Cova’s POS & Inventory Management platform is recommended by AGCO and used by nearly 90% of the province’s cannabis stores. The robust software suite offers industry-leading performance, automated compliance, and world-class customer support. Cova has helped Ontario retailers pass inspections and launch stores and against tight deadlines and adapt their business to overcome pandemic restrictions. We work continuously with the AGCO to stay on top of evolving regulations. In addition to streamlined sales tools and advanced inventory management for retail stores, Cova POS offers fully integrated online ordering, online payment, and delivery.


Q & A

1. How does Cova help with monthly AGCO compliance reports?

Cova POS tracks sales and inventory and produces 1-click compliance reports that contain all the data required each month by the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario. Cova also offers diagnostic reports so retailers can easily investigate what’s going into their provincial compliance reports in more detail.

2. What POS features help Ontario cannabis retailers simplify compliance?

To ensure compliance with Health Canada and AGCO regulations, Cova features several automated safeguards. A built-in ID scanner verifies customers are of age and using a valid ID, preventing sales otherwise. The integrated purchase limit gauge shows budtenders precisely how much they can legally sell, with product equivalencies automatically calculated for edibles and concentrates. Operational hours can also be set to prohibit sales outside of regulated times.

3. How does Cova POS help with e-commerce solutions like online ordering, curbside pickup, and delivery?

Cova POS has the built-in workflows and existing partner integrations to make a variety of end-to-end e-commerce solutions easy. Cova plugs in to leading online menu and payment platforms like Dutchie, Shopify, Super, and Buddi, so you can sync your inventory automatically and manage orders from multiple sources all in one place. Whether you’re fulfilling orders for in-store pickup, curbside pickup, or home delivery, Cova makes the process seamless as you expand and adapt your business to thrive.

4. How does Cova help first time retailers open their store and pass AGCO inspection?

Cova has worked with hundreds of cannabis retailers across Canada. We strive to go above and beyond to help new retailers launch their store. Not only does our premier launch team help you set up your POS and train you and your staff how to use it with confidence, we share cannabis retail best practices and insights gained from our hands-on knowledge of the Ontario market. Cova provides our customers with the AGCO inspection checklist, complete with details on how our software solves for a variety of compliance requirements. We ensure our retail customers are well-prepared, and 100% pass their AGCO inspection.

5. How can Cova POS help streamline my cannabis store operations?

Cova’s intuitive user interface is easy to learn, and the streamlined sales tools allow Ontario budtenders to create and complete fast transactions. The system’s offline mode ensures that the convenience of mobile tablets isn’t undermined by spotty Wi-Fi, and sales can continue uninterrupted even if the signal drops. Detailed reports-on-demand and mobile dashboards allow store owners to make fast, confident decisions on staffing, sales, stock reordering, and more. Advanced inventory tools like Rooms segmentation, batch scanning, and bulk updates make auditing easier and improve store efficiency.

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

POS systems that work well in restaurants and other retail establishments may be cheaper, but they don’t help you remain compliant or run a competitive cannabis operation. Cova is a compliance-first company; we work closely with the AGCO to understand Ontario regulations and keep our system updated as they change. We offer 1-click AGCO reports and built-in automation to help retailers reduce human error and simplify compliance.
