It is reasonable to assume that students will not be returning to campus in the numbers they did in previous semesters.  Many will take advantage of new “remote learning”  tools to participate in lectures and classroom discussions.  In addition to relying on tools like Zoom to participate in the lessons, students expect other online ways to “round out” the related needs of the learning experience.

But how will students get the essential supplies they need from local businesses that serve students, like bookstores and other campus services?  The answer for your bookstore is makes it easy for college & university bookstores to rent or sell textbooks online, providing students with easy access to the resources they need to get the most of their remote education.

From easy inventory management, a full-featured point-of-sale system and a complementary eCommerce website, provides everything that college bookstores need to prepare for students’ upcoming classes.
