SHOP

Supply.png Order the goods. To retail goods in your stores, you first need to purchase the goods you want from the manufacturers and arrange for deliveries to your store. We recommend that you focus on one particular category of retail products to get the most out of your sales area. Order several products from the selected category. Don't spend all your money buying a product. Because if there are difficulties with its retail sale, it can lead to bankruptcy. When buying wholesale from manufacturers, be guided by city average data on the cost and quality of goods in order to ensure yourself the necessary profit. You don't have to try to buy the highest quality product on the market - it can be prohibitively expensive. Retail sales in your store only on the next turn after ordering the goods from the supplier. One turn is required to deliver the ordered goods to the store.

Employees.png Hire shop assistants. The requirements for the number and experience of store personnel are determined by the number of visitors, the location of the store and the product range. For small shops up to 1000 sq.m. do not be afraid to hire all possible staff, for larger outlets follow the requirements to maintain the quality of service.

Advertasement.png Start advertising your store. The advertising of the store determines its popularity, and therefore the number of visitors - potential buyers.

FACTORIES

Equipment.png Buy equipment. The equipment must correspond to the level of established technology in your plant.

Employees.png Hire workers. The number and skills of employees must match the plant equipment. Set the salary in such a way that the quality of the hired employees is slightly higher than required. Overly qualified personnel can have low manageability and negatively affect the effectiveness of the top manager.

Supply.png Arrange supplies. The number of equipment and employees, as well as the level of technology installed, determine the production volume of your plant. Also, the required amount of raw materials and semi-finished products for production depends on them. These requirements can be seen in the "Supply" tab. Based on these requirements, order the required components for production. By signing a contract with a supplier, you will automatically receive the required amount of raw materials from him every turn. The supplier automatically fulfills its obligations to supply you with raw materials if they have sufficient quantities in stock.

Sale.png Set the selling price after production. After the ordered raw materials arrive and the finished products are produced (this requires one round for each operation), it is necessary to sell the manufactured products. To do this, you need to set a price in the "Sale" tab and set a sales policy ("To all buyers" or "Only to yourself").
