We are pleased to announce that Pratt Institute, a renowned New York City-based college that educates creative thinkers from around the world, has joined our rapidly growing list of partner schools.

Beginning this fall, Pratt students can shop for more affordable books in different formats, including new, used, rental, or eBook. Orders can be placed at any time through the new customized online bookstore and marketplace. Akademos’ mobile online shopping platform can save students an average of 30%-40% on the cost of their textbooks and course materials.

“We believe that our new partnership with Akademos will deliver an online bookstore platform  that will greatly benefit Pratt students and faculty,” said Cathleen Kenny, Vice President of Finance and Administration at Pratt Institute. “Akademos’ online Marketplace aligns with our students’ demand for competitively priced textbooks, and their innovative faculty resource tools and account management services will improve the efficiency of our textbook adoption process.”

“We look forward to partnering with Pratt Institute,” said Akademos Chief Executive Officer John Squires. “Our mission is singularly focused on providing the highest quality customized virtual bookstore services for colleges and universities across the country and we are thrilled to be working with Pratt to power its online storefront and to reduce costs and drive value for its students.”
