Wabash College Continues to Raise the Bar on the Student Bookstore Experience
Norwalk, CT (PRUnderground) July 15th, 2021
Akademos announced today a partnership with Wabash College to launch a new online bookstore and course content platform this July. The private men’s college in Crawfordsville, Indiana, nationally ranked for best classroom experience and most accessible faculty, will continue to focus on affordability, support, and providing students with increasing value at the on-campus store.
The move to the Akademos platform provides Wabash College with broad booklist coverage and sophisticated integration capabilities, delivering added convenience through a strong technology platform.
Akademos’ industry-leading software will provide the college with a Wabash-branded eCommerce bookstore, a faculty adoption portal, and a suite of administrative tools including comprehensive data and analytics reporting. Addressing the growing need for affordability, the online store features low-cost new, used, digital and rental items, along with a third-party seller Marketplace with over 100 million titles.
Akademos technology directly integrates with institutional registration and learning management systems, creating a personalized experience for students and faculty.
Wabash, which competes in 13 varsity sports, will continue to run an on-campus retail operation for emblematic merchandise and apparel. Akademos will help promote the on-campus store across its digital communication channels.
“We’re thrilled about our new partnership with Wabash College,” said Akademos CEO Raj Kaji. “We know their students will benefit from the convenience and affordability built into our eCommerce platform.”
More than just an online bookstore, an Akademos technology-driven solution is the bookstore experience every college and university with unique needs deserves. Whether the bookstore is a service for students or a revenue generator, the platform supports prioritizing textbook affordability with all models including Student Choice, Inclusive Access, Equitable Access, or a combination. All aspects of textbook and course material purchasing and delivery are taken care of so you can focus on what matters – student success. We believe a true partnership provides unmatched customer support along with access to tools and analytics needed to take each student’s college experience to the next level. And if you aren’t ready to go “all in” with one model, transitioning from IA to EA at your pace is possible with our institution-focused Crawl, Walk, Run, Fly program. Learn more at akademos.com.
