About KORONA POS

KORONA POS cloud-based point of sale software comes with universal features applicable to general retailers. But KORONA POS 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 POS for wineries 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 POS 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 point of sale system and the cloud-based back office portal for running real time sales reports and statistical analysis, KORONA POS Menu adds a companion mobile app for iOS platforms. This extends KORONA POS to an electronic waiter's notepad for restaurants, bars, leisure clubs, cafés, etc., automatically connecting to a detected KORONA POS 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 POS also integrates with bLoyal, an advanced customer loyalty system that is primarily used by wineries. For ticketing and membership services, KORONA POScan 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.

    We transitioned multiple software solutions looking to find something that would fully integrate while also helping us dig deeper into our sales data and manage our inventory more closely. Korona has provided solutions for all of those things and made it so much easier to manage our business uniformly across all three tasting room locations as well as managing our Wine Club and online store.

    Of all the software solutions we transitioned to this year, Korona greatly exceeded the customer service of all others. While other solutions were hard to get in contact with (especially with a real person), Korona was always easy to reach, extremely personable, knowledgeable, and quick to help.

    Pros

    The reporting you are able to do in Korona is amazing. It helps us make decisions about store hours, staffing, products to re-order, etc. much easier. We liked being able to customize the buttons in a way that made the most sense for our business and staff. It is much easier to train new staff members on Korona compared to our previous POS software, which is great!
    Our favorite part of the software would be the Support and even Sales team though, they made the transition so easy and continue to promptly assist us with any issue or concern that arises. They work with us to ensure we are happy with the way things are operating and are just AMAZING overall!

    Cons

    We have struggled with getting the Quickbooks integration to work correctly for us. We also purchased a tablet from them that is extremely slow and frustrating to use the software on.

    Reasons for Switching to KORONA POS

    The pricing and features available from Korona was better than the others we had previewed. Plus the ability to adjust the quantity of POSs we have active seasonally to fit our business needs.

    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 POS

    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 POS

    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!

    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 :)

    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.

    Overall a great product for retail POS system. Integrates with my credit card machine so cuts down on the potential for human error. End of Day reporting is excellent. Employee time clock is great as well.

    Pros

    Value for the money is excellent and the customer service is the best I have experienced.

    Cons

    No ID scanning and no "Legal Birthdate" that shows on the POS screen.
