You need a company that can supply the books you need and provide a state-of-the-art system which handles your workload and produces actionable data; a company that values relationships and grasps the nuances of the industry. A company like MBS.

Launch Into Success With MBSCourse material options

The benefit of partnering with a company of scale is that it has the foundation to provide your store with the attention, service and low-cost course material options required to continue to grow into the future.

Students today still prefer used textbooks, and the quality used textbook is the lowest cost to the student. Also, a used book can become a rental book at an even lower out-of-pocket cost,MBS Vice President of Sales and Marketing Jeff Miller said. “Savings and selection are what drive students to shop in our bookstore partner stores and websites.

Innovative techology

Changes in retail happen fast. Customer expectations continue to grow. Don’t get left behind with a slow POS system that cannot meet the real-life day-to-day challenges your store faces. Choosing a system that can give you an edge over online retailers, increase productivity and enhance your service through actionable data is a must.

“It’s getting trickier and trickier these days to look at what’s selling, what’s not selling, to know answers to critical questions. Arc presents the data to you in a way that allows you to make decisions on the fly,” MBS Systems Sales Consultant Victor Hoffman said.For instance, the buyers trend report in the merchandise area gives you a great overview of a product. You can get an overview of how a product is doing and how it has done. Therefore, you will be able to set up replenishment models that help you make sure the items that are selling stay in stock, and the items that aren’t selling stay out of stock.”

Customer experience

Getting the help you need, when you need it, makes a difference in your ability to support customers — your success is our success. We strive to provide exemplary service because each partner school is important to MBS. When you partner with us, you become part of the family.

“I think MBS takes — and if they don’t, they should be taking — great pride in the customer service to their store partners,” University Store Director at University of Central Missouri Store Charlie Rutt said. “We operate the same way [as MBS]. We both treat customers as if we were family. I think, generally speaking, we’re going to do more for our family than we are for strangers.”

Choosing the right course materials partner is an important decision. Find out how MBS can provide the course material solutions your store needs.
