SUNY Polytechnic Institute Launches Online Bookstore, Reducing Textbook Costs

SUNY_Nanotech_CenterNew York State’s high-tech state university is launching an online bookstore to enhance student experience and improve affordability. Our newest partnership with SUNY Poly, one of U.S News & World Report’s Best Value Colleges and Best Colleges for Veterans in the Regional Universities-North category in 2021, is part of a new initiative to reduce the cost and increase the accessibility of course content for its nearly 3,000 students. After a thorough competitive bidding process, the university selected Akademos to create a new online bookstore operation that will offer all required textbooks and course materials through an integrated eCommerce experience.

“As colleges continue to seek new and creative approaches to enhance value and improve the student experience, optimizing the use of physical space and digital and on-campus resources represents one of the most effective ways to not just improve the student experience, but ultimately control costs,” said Raj Kaji, CEO of Akademos. “The launch of this forward facing approach to course materials and textbooks is reflective of SUNY Poly’s commitment to driving value, affordability, and a high-quality educational experience for its students.”
