Cova has been the fastest growing software solutions company in the history of the legal cannabis industry and is now the #1 POS in North America. After launching commercially less than 4 years ago, we surpassed over 50 other companies as the industry preference. Through constant product innovation, execution of a clear growth strategy and high integrity in everything we do, Cova delivers a premium service to its clients.
We design and build products on an open API architecture platform that elevates the dispensary retail experience. Our point-of-sale solution (POS) is purpose-built for cannabis retail and is based on years of experience in high growth/high complexity industries.
The legal marijuana market is on a fast growth trajectory with more new states legalizing every year. 5 more just passed in Nov 2020 and 2 additional states legislatively opted for retail operations in 2021.
Cova operates as a young company that spun out of a solid, well-established 20+-year-old software company called iQmetrix. Collectively, our software can be found in over 20,000 stores across North America in several verticals, and we support retailers with one location and others who have thousands. Cova has invested heavily to have the industry-leading platform for enterprises and is technologically ahead of where the industry is heading.
Let's shape the next generation of cannabis retailers together, and own it.
