Period. while lowering the cost of attendance. Everybody wins. BILL MUSE VP for Administration YOUR CAMPUS STORE IS STRUGGLING TO BE PROFITABLE. & Finance, Schreiner University Some say the campus bookstore, as we know it, may be a thing of the past. Bookstores at higher education institutions are struggling to serve the needs of their campus with low-cost course materials. In turn, students are choosing to go online for their textbooks, or deciding not to purchase books at all. But the reality is that bookstores can still fulfill a critical need on campus with convenient, inexpensive access to course materials. And if your campus has already closed the doors on your campus store, you likely still need an effective solution for providing your students with affordable course materials. The problem? Many other current solutions are limiting, and aren t providing the affordability you need. Rafter360 provides a simple and comprehensive, cost-effective solution for your campus. YOUR CURRICULUM IS GETTING MORE COMPLEX. Campuses face increasing curriculum complexity with changing technology trends and sourcing supply issues. Unprecedented challenges have arisen like publishers competing with bookstores and emerging digital content and formats. Campuses need a better and more innovative solution a solution that enables you to adapt to the rapidly changing landscape of course materials. Rafter360 provides a new approach to course materials management, a new way of thinking, and one that helps you adapt to the changing educational landscape.
