Feb 28, 2017 –
Following the 2016 acquisitions of BookVolume and ValoreBooks, Follett B2B is bringing together best-in-class technology to serve as the ultimate resource for independently managed campus stores. CAMEX 2017 attendees will have an opportunity to learn more about how these businesses together offer a unique collection of sourcing, rental, management, buyback and liquidation solutions.
Looking specifically at sourcing, BookVolume’s aggregation technology enables stores to simultaneously source textbooks across multiple marketplaces while ValoreBooks offers one of the largest and most trusted online textbook marketplaces. Taking the best of what BookVolume and ValoreBooks have to offer, Follett B2B is creating the Follett Marketplace.
“Follett is focused on driving textbook affordability to help our customers achieve their inventory and sales growth goals,” said John Lausas, Senior Vice President of Strategic Sourcing & Distribution for Follett. “We’re excited to offer individual solution evaluations at the Follett booth, and we’ll also be sharing details on our Wholesale 2.0 pilot, which leverages BV technology to streamline each step of the course material process.”
