A college store, armed with modern technology, can put more content into student’s hands at a lower price than anyone else in the world. This fundamentally changes student access to content and the courses they are most passionate about, and increases the chances they’ll succeed. Of all the things that matter, this matters above all.
More important than what we have built, is knowing how we build. Here’s some insight into how we build Pro.
A COMMUNITY OF USERS
A community of users adopts Pro because it is simple, beautiful, smaller, less complex and less expensive than other options. This community provides feedback which benefits all other users of the community.
PROVIDES FEEDBACK WHICH TURNS INTO RAPID PROTOTYPES
Feedback is run through its paces. Some feedback makes the cut. Some doesn’t. Ultimately the most compelling insights and most persistent needs for improvement are prototyped.
AND THE MOST VALUABLE RESULTS BECOME SOFTWARE
The community feedback which is most valuable becomes features in the software that we hope delight your team and deliver real results.
HOW PRO BRINGS SUCCESS TO YOUR STORE OVER THE LONG TERM
Pro is following in the footsteps of other modern software, staying on the leading edge as a community driven product. It will succeed as a community of users use the baseline functionality, while allowing it to progress and improve based on the needs of the community at large, not the individual store alone. Reducing software overhead that accumulates through extensive and expensive customizations is key. The cost of Pro can remain modest by keeping the software simple and extending the benefits of cloud architecture and feature sharing to the community.
Does Pro do that? Take a look:
- Adoptions Management
- Course Materials Discovery
- Open Market Sourcing
- Cloud Based Architecture
- Split Transactions
- AR and Store Credit
- Gift Cards
- Physical Inventory
- Promotions Management
- Ecommerce Website
- General Merchandise
- Charge When Ship – eCommerce
- User Accounts
- Multiple Tracked Registers
Is it true Pro pays for itself?
Pro’s default sourcing module sources textbooks from the open market through innovative and fully integrated partnerships with the used online textbook market and leading logistics partners. Sourcing through Pro results in a savings of between 15 and 35% off of traditional wholesale. At times, even more! Sourcing just $250,000 per year can save in excess of $50,000! This far and away pays for all of Pro, and more.
