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.

    Great POS and Support Team

    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.

    KORONA is a very potential POS system for the future!

    Reviewed on 2020/06/24

    Pros

    I have been learning KORONA as my company is planning to move to this POS system. KORONA as first does not seem like a matching POS system for my wholesale company. However, the more I learn to use it, and with the help of awesome customer support, the more I believe this POS system could be a very good fit to many type of business out there. So I love the most about this software is the 24/7 customer service and reporting function that are very easy to use.

    Cons

    What I don't like is not too big of an issue. It was just the terminology that KORONA used that are not too popular compare to other POS system out there. If KORONA consider to add a function where we can customize the terminology across this system, KORONA will be on fire!!

    Response from COMBASE

    Hey Kevin! Happy to have you with us at KORONA. And thanks for leaving us such a kind review so soon. We'll be here for anything you need during your transition and for the duration of your subscription :)

    KORONA Review

    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 :)

    Fairly straightforward POS system that is evolving

    Pros

    Outstanding customer phone suppprt. Our account rep(s) are over the top attentive and eager to trouble shoot at any hour -this is always very reassuring

    Cons

    Still not every thing we need and difficulties expressing our needs. Updates often times remove functionality that is worthwhile and it's difficult to convey the importance of not losing functionality. The time difference has also caused some issues on pressing issues -and updates are not tested on all platforms and to the extent that I feel they should be.

    Response from COMBASE

    Thank you very much for your review! We try to make KORONA better with every update and are very sorry that some updates had the opposite effect for you. We will address this with the product team and do our best to not have updates affect any customers negatively in the future.
