Retail Hero has introduced a new online game designed especially for retailers. The interactive game familiarizes retailers with the essentials of retail management right from the first step. The game uses the example of a simple hot dog stand, to educate retailers in the importance of technology for success in retail business.
The player starts at the first level where he/she is a hot dog vendor and works up his way to the higher levels becoming a pawnshop retailer, a grocery store owner, and finally a national franchise. As the retailer conquers each level they win advanced technologies like a POS system, barcode scanners, pin-pad's, weigh scales etc.
These technologies assist in boosting revenues. The game also spices up the retailer’s journey by presenting ever-new challenges to overcome.
Retailers also have the option of borrowing and investing money. Also, the graphic and sound effects included as part of the game create a realistic experience. The game is expected to get a rave response from the retail sector.
