Running your school bookstore from within has its advantages, including the level of service you’re providing your students and parents. It’s hard to beat that personal touch. However, it requires a substantial amount of personnel and time, not to mention the fact that bookstore managers are required to be operations experts and perform quite a bit of manual labor. From interacting with publishers, negotiating fees, and collecting funds to storing books, unpacking boxes and repacking boxes for returns, it all adds up to an inefficient use of staff time and school funds.
Maintaining inventory is costly, and in-house bookstores take up valuable space in your school. Isn’t it time for a change in how you manage your school bookstore?

“Our online bookstore with ClassBook.com has been a win for everybody. The school has saved money. The faculty no longer has to spend the first day of school handing out books. The administrators can go online and view the status and price of book orders. Our parents like being able to earn points by using their credit cards; our school bookstore only accepted cash. But the primary benefit is technology. Though we are still ordering some hard copy books, our school is on the cusp of moving into a digital learning environment. And ClassBook.com is the right partner to lead us in that transition.”
