Saint Xavier University to Support Students Looking to Buy Textbooks Online
Norwalk, CT (PRUnderground) May 26th, 2021
Akademos announced today a new partnership with Saint Xavier University in Chicago. The university has made the forward-thinking decision to transition to an online model for course material and merchandise sales with Akademos as its new technology partner.
Using Akademos’ industry-leading platform for course content management, Saint Xavier launched the new online store beginning with the summer 2021 term. The school-branded platform features a wide range of low-cost course material options along with merchandise and branded apparel.
The move online will enable the private Catholic university to repurpose its existing store space. Akademos will supply a wide variety of SXU spirit wear items through their print-on-demand solution that is available for sale on its SXU Online Bookstore website.
“As a student-centered institution, Saint Xavier University is excited to provide our students with this affordable and more efficient option to order and receive their course materials in support of their academic success,” said Linda Moreno, director of Auxiliary Services at Saint Xavier. “This platform will also give us the opportunity to create engagement with alumni and donors, as we celebrate our 175th anniversary.”
“We are pleased about the opportunity to provide Saint Xavier a full-service online solution covering both textbooks and merchandise,” said Akademos CEO Raj Kaji. “This streamlines the retail operation and helps Saint Xavier generate excitement about the school brand.”
