KORONA

A all-in-one cloud-based POS and inventory management system

About KORONA

KORONA cloud-based point of sale software comes with universal features applicable to general retailers. But KORONA also offers tailored solutions for specific business types, including convenience stores, pet shops, gift shops, and liquor stores, along with quick service options for bakeries, coffee shops, museums, and amusement parks. The KORONA winery POS adds specific hospitality features associated with the general sale of wine, while also able to manage wine tastings, club membership, and hospitality/service requirements. Wineries can leverage table management and process tip payments while the inventory management software is accurate enough to track wine stocks by the glass. Promising an intuitive and configurable POS interface that eases employee training, KORONA is adjustable to meet established retail workflows with button and screen layouts customizable across compatible touchscreen checkout terminals, tablets, and smartphones.

Aside from the main POS system and the cloud-based back office portal for running real time sales reports and statistical analysis, KORONA Menu adds a companion mobile app for iOS platforms. This extends KORONA to an electronic waiter's notepad for restaurants, bars, leisure clubs, cafés, etc., automatically connecting to a detected KORONA terminal.

Broader standard POS features include integrated payment processing, inventory tracking, multi-store and warehouse management, employee time/activity reports, commission tracking, cashier permissions, product analysis, automated ordering, vendor management, and more. KORONA also integrates with bLoyal, an advanced customer loyalty system that is primarily used by wineries. For ticketing and membership services, KORONA can provide customer profiles, ticket printing, eCommerce integration, and turnstile integration. All software updates are included in the monthly rate and applied to every software subscriber on an automatic, monthly basis.

    Best decision I ever made

    Reviewed on 2022/05/10

    I feel the inventory is much better than my previous system.

    I feel the inventory is much better than my previous system.

    Pros

    I like the cloud part the best. I can do ordering when I am away from the store. I am a single owner/user of the system and I was in need of a new POS system due to my previous system was no longer going to be available and I searched out a lot of new POS and I found Korona to be very similar to my previous system. I just had to learn new verbage to understand what I wanted to do. My previous system it was hard to get ahold of anyone to help with any questions and the support staff at Korona has been outstanding! Any question they know what I need and it doesn't matter who I talk to. They all know what I need and explain it or fix my issue in no time. It was the best decision I ever made!

    Cons

    The hardest part for me is the reports. I know what I want to do but I have a hard time remembering where to get the reports because where I think they should be, they are in a different spot. there are a few things that are confusing but I just figure it out or call support.

    Extremely positive. The software interfaces correctly and well with all of the equipment we need it to, the reporting is extensive, the inventory management works well, and the customer service is the best of any of our vendors.

    Pros

    How fully featured it is. There's nothing I've needed to do that Korona couldn't handle one way or another, which cannot be said for literally any other POS I've used in my career.

    Cons

    The user interface leaves a good bit to be desired. It's not unusable by any means, but it does feel as though the UI was designed by developers, not designers. Can be confusing and unintuitive at times.

    KORONA Review

    Reviewed on 2019/07/31

    Pros

    Software was good and features designed

    Cons

    Cost to much should have cheaper price for people

    Response from COMBASE

    Hi Steven, thanks for the feedback. Glad to hear that you liked our product, but sorry to hear that it wasn't in your price range. We strive to provide reasonable prices for each of our POS software solutions.
    KORONA's software-as-a-service always comes as a flat monthly rate with no extra fees or expenses. Often, "cheaper" solutions end up being more expensive once all fees are added on.
    Please don't hesitate to reach out again if you're interested in setting up a demo with your free trial so you can see each of the features that KORONA comes with. Our support and customer service team members are pretty great :)

    I had such an antiquated system before, implementing Korona has been a huge game changer for my overall profitability. Implementation was seamless and painless! The support staff is great and always ready to help. Had I known it would be this easy, I would have made the switch sooner!

    Pros

    Korona makes it so easy to manage my business remotely. I can easily update pricing, enter stock receipts and view all my sales data from the website. All the POS features are customizable based on your business and the reporting is pretty endless.

    Cons

    My only "want" at this point is more features available from the mobile version of the back office.

    Reasons for Choosing KORONA

    Running reports and accessing the data I need to make business decisions was a nightmare. The software was not web-based and does not run on a Mac computer. Working in that system was so time consuming.

    Reasons for Switching to KORONA

    I ran a custom software development company for 12 years prior and the second I set up a demo account, I knew the interface would meet my high expectations. My account executive got right to the point and answered all my questions. There was no "selling" me, which I loved. The software did that already, working with a team like Korona is exactly what I was looking for!

    Response from COMBASE

    Thanks, Kristen! We're always working on improving the product and service, and the mobile side of the back office will have new features soon. We'll keep ya posted!
