Our systems are designed for the unique challenges college stores face every day. Taking a holistic approach to collegiate retail means you have the system functionality you need in one complete turnkey system.

With the MBS system:

  • POS hardware is included
    You do not have to source your own hardware or pay additional support fees for POS support. It is all included in our solution, making it easy to save time and provide fast customer support directly from the register.

    We offer three POS options, so you can choose the solution that best fits your store:
    Toshiba TCx™ 800 – This POS solution is a workhorse in retail. It is a powerhouse of efficiency with a swift Intel Core™ i5 processor and five years of onsite service.

    Toshiba T10 – This is a slightly smaller POS unit with an easy-to-use touchscreen interface. This elegant counter-top register has a smaller footprint.

    Microsoft® Surface Pro – This portable register is perfect for remote events, rush lanes and can be used for inventory, receiving and online order packing. It is also a terrific solution for stores looking to save money while boosting customer service with access to the MBS POS software application suite.

  • Add more functionality
    Third-party and campus integrations enable more functionality without having to manage disparate systems or undertake additional support costs. Integrations such as SFA, ERP and One Card, SIS, Apple DEP, shipping, and digital content (including integrations with Verba, VitalSource®, RedShelf® and CEI) make it easy for college stores to streamline operations and offer the best solutions for your campus. The vast array of potential integrations helps stores facilitate all facets of campus retail.

  • The faculty adoption tool is integrated
    Handling course material adoptions is quick and easy. The online adoption tool gives faculty a guided walk-through of the adoption process and allows for more flexibility in creating multiple courses and managing a large book list. There is no need for an additional faculty adoption management tool. This integrated solution allows for seamless faculty adoption management.

  • All support is included in the support cost
    With the MBS system, you don’t have to worry about being charged additional fees for support services like website changes or emergency POS support. The extensive MBS support team is always available to help.
