Advanced Capabilities Empower Institutions to Transform the Online Bookstore Experience in a More Personalized and Productive Way

Through Ambassador's advanced supply chain technology, flexible fulfillment processes, and support services, ordering course materials is intuitive, delivery is automatic and reporting is seamless.

"We're empowering colleges and universities to determine exactly how the Online Bookstore can work best for themselves and their students," said Blicht.

Ambassador Education Solutions, the innovator in course materials and content integration programs, today launched its new Online Bookstore solution. Having always focused on a simplified and tailored approach to course materials management, the enhanced Online Bookstore takes customization and flexibility to an entirely new level, giving institutions more opportunities to adapt the system to their unique requirements, while also providing students with an even more intuitive way to connect with resources.

"Making the education experience as effective and efficient as possible for administrators, faculty and students is the cornerstone of our development efforts," said Steven M. Blicht, COO of Ambassador. "By delivering an even higher degree of customization options specific to each institution, coupled with a smarter user experience that students can relate to, our Online Bookstore delivers unprecedented levels of personalization and ease-of-use. We're empowering colleges and universities to determine exactly how the Online Bookstore can work best for themselves and their students."

The new Online Bookstore can be custom fit to meet the specific needs of each school, from enhanced visual and navigation options, to tailored announcements and links, to the entire workflow progression. Institutions can determine exactly how students move through the ordering, payment and fulfillment process. Additionally, advanced business rules management allows institutions to modify functionality based on their own models and requirements (tuition inclusive, credit card and voucher payments, parameters around what students can and cannot purchase, and more).

Data analytics also have an even more meaningful presence under the new and more simplified infrastructure. It is easier than ever for institutions to capture relevant information to assess course materials selection, usage and trends, including students' advanced purchasing behaviors and preferences. The new Online Bookstore can even assist schools with student retention analytics, providing seamless access to results through Ambassador’s proprietary client portal SourceOne.

The more configurable user experience is not only logical, but also highly convenient. Navigation is more instinctual, saving students valuable time. The enhanced mobile experience gives students on-the-go access and its advanced single sign-on functionality is LTI compatible with Learning Management Systems, Student Information Systems and Digital Content Platforms. Additionally, backed by a new help center, students have access to improved support tools and information is readily available at their fingertips for a more personalized and productive experience.

Ambassador's Online Bookstore service model continues to allow students the opportunity to easily login 24x7x365 to view a list of required materials, place their order, pay for their purchase, and access order history. Materials, including textbooks, eBooks, custom content, access codes, Print-On-Demand, supplies, kits, devices, logo merchandise and more, are shipped to each student's preferred address, which is verified prior to shipment. Additionally, Ambassador offers other service models to distribute course materials, including its Auto-Fill Solution (students automatically receive all required materials without any involvement on their part), Brick & Mortar Bookstore and Fulfillment.
