Coming Soon to NACUBO: How to Implement a Bookstore ‘Marketplace’ Model

The Akademos team is on the road again. This time, we’re headed to present a breakout session and exhibit at  NACUBO 2014 in Seattle. Be sure to stop by booth #1100 or set up a custom demo.

We hope you can join us for our presentation Implementing a Bookstore ‘Marketplace’ Model on Tuesday, July 22 at 9:45 AM.

Session Overview: 

We have all witnessed how third-party retail web sites have changed the way students shop for textbooks. Marketplaces, made popular by e-commerce sites such as Amazon, connect third-party sellers with consumers, usually at a lower cost to the consumer. Institutions that can implement this model, including processing financial aid payments, can gain a competitive edge in the textbook business without passing increasing costs on to their students.

In this session, you will learn practical steps to leverage the marketplace shopping trend, and ultimately, how to drive traffic back to your school-sanctioned bookstore. Discover how two institutions applied the ‘marketplace’ model to their bookstores with the goals of improving student satisfaction and recapturing lost consumers.

Featured Speakers:

 Joining us will be representatives from two of our partner schools: JayeLynn Bergers, Director of  Bookstores and Merchandising Operations at Davenport University and Labouré College’s CFO Mark Virello.
