SimpleSource is a great way to procure dynamically priced used books from MBS.
"We really like how we can set up different ‘shopping’ cycles and see the big picture for our wantlist by checking on marketplace status, order fulfillment from MBS and adjusting how our list is being worked — daily if desired."Cindy Hawk, M.A., Assistant Director, Book Division, The University of Arizona BookStores
We decided to make the switch to MBS in November of 2014.
"It has been a great decision for our store. Our used book inventory and sell-through continues to climb through our partnership with MBS."Julie Banks, Bookstore Director, University of Dayton
Used books have always been in demand in our industry – now more than ever.
"Our partnership with MBS has allowed us to save our students an additional $95,000 over the past year because of the increase in the number of used copies we’ve received from MBS."David Abrahamson, Manager, Milwaukee School of Engineering Bookstore
The MBS Rental program has been instrumental in allowing our store to grow our rental program into one of the largest in the nation. It has brought lower prices back to the bookstore, which was a big relief for students and professors alike. Even though we drastically reduced prices, our store maintained the same margin. Now we can give students the options they deserve, and let them decide.
