In this article we explore Cultivera POS and Dispensary Point-of-Sale (POS) systems: what they are, the most important features, and an introduction to our all-in-one retail solution built for Dispensary success.
What Is Cultivera's Dispensary Point-of-Sale Solution?
One of the most important parts of any retail operation’s toolbox is their Point-of-Sale (POS) system. For any retail business, few tools are as indispensable as a reliable point-of-sale system. In the legal cannabis industry, a good Dispensary point-of-sale can be especially critical to ensure seamless transactions and continued legal compliance.
This is particularly true when it comes to licensed Dispensaries: a good, cannabis-specific point-of-sale platform can be a game-changer.
In fact, in an ever-changing regulatory landscape like the cannabis industry, a streamlined Dispensary POS with seamless integrations, automations, and reporting can make or break a business.
What Is A Dispensary POS System?
A Point-of-Sale (or POS) system is the term for a retail sales software used to conduct consumer sales transactions. For any retail business operations, the management of your team, inventory, and sales is a critical piece of success. Licensed cannabis stores and medical Dispensaries in states with legal marijuana are no exception.
After all, efficient Point-Of-Sale systems are an essential part of running a sales-based operation. These critical software tools allow businesses to conduct, process, track, and report on all sales transactions across their business.
Unfortunately for many up-and-coming operations, cannabis-specific point-of-sale platforms built for Dispensaries are not as common as their more general counterparts.
What makes a Dispensary Point-of-Sale system different from the average POS?
Dispensary POS systems include additional features and workflows to account for the complex sales and regulatory landscape of the legal cannabis industry.
This means Dispensaries know they’re staying on top of everything their store needs! From their customer interactions, team performance, inventory auditing, sales reporting, and traceability compliance, to product intake, promotions, and final consumer sales.
Key Features Of A Good Dispensary Point-Of-Sale
On top of day-to-day sales transactions, the most valuable Dispensary Point-Of-Sale systems offer additional tools to help manage retail operations. These may include customer check in and profile management, staff clocks and budtender performance reporting, inventory management systems, and Point-of-Sale systems.
Here are a few of the most essential features of a good Dispensary Point-of-Sale system:
- Simplified Workflows – maintain complete control over your supply chain with user-friendly workflows and automations.
- Intuitive Dashboards – see everything you need to know, at a glance.
- Budtender Management – from time clocks to Budtender reports, manage your team all in one place.
- Detailed Reporting – rest assured in your continued traceability compliance with a combination of business intelligence and in-depth report generation.
- Seamless Interoperability – no specific equipment requirements, so you can bring your own hardware.
- Menu Integrations – connect with digital menu accounts like Leafly.

What About Dispensary Hardware?
On the other hand, what kind of hardware do Dispensaries need to run a cannabis point-of-sale? A given retail store typically requires four pieces of hardware to run a point-of-sale system: a terminal, receipt printer, cash drawer, and scanner. Dispensaries selling weighted inventory will also need a scale and label printer.
Another critical tool, for any business, is a reliable wireless internet connection. Dispensaries will often find that a stable WIFI designated for shop devices is very important. In the case of WIFI and power outages, Cultivera POS offers Offline Mode for peace of mind. With Offline Mode, Dispensaries can continue conducting business during periods of internet instability.
But one of our favorite things about Cultivera POS is that you can bring your own hardware! This is true whether you’ve got a preferred brand, or have an expensive sales terminal purchased for a previous POS platform. With Cultivera POS, you can BYOE (Bring Your Own Equipment). In addition, Cultivera also offers POS Web, and the ability to even run Point of Sales through your laptop!
