Hi there.

our company is structure the following:

- Head Office
- 3 stores in 3 different cities

Head office import
Stores place an order to the Head Office
Head office bills, prepares and dispatches orders to the stores
stores might buy locally in some instances
stores do not have warehouse (the stock is directly put on display after pricing is done by the store)

Questions:

1- Do i need to create 4 companies (1 for HO and 1 for each store)?
2- Is the inventory of the store (if a company) represent the store items on display/shelves?
3- Can above be handle by one database, one installation?

Thanks,
Joe
Based on what you have said in your description:
1- Do i need to create 4 companies (1 for HO and 1 for each store)?
No, unless you need to track financials separately (Payables, Receivables etc0
2- Is the inventory of the store (if a company) represent the store items on display/shelves?
Yes and you can setup multiple location inside 1 database. Location "HQ", "StoreA" etc. You can also setup user security by location (including view/update) limiting people in store A from seeing Store B for example. You can transfer inventory between location or between HQ and StoreA. People in HQ can purchase to ship directly to StoreA if needed as well.
3- Can above be handle by one database, one installation?
Should be able to
Hi Agaluski,

Will give it a try and let you know how it goes. Many thanks.
