Akademos, Inc., a leading provider of integrated online bookstore and marketplace services for educational institutions, announced today that Life University (LIFE.edu), a thriving university rooted in innovation and purpose with the largest single-campus doctor of chiropractic program in the world, has joined its growing list of partner institutions.
Starting this month, Life University students can shop for textbooks in the format of their choice across new, used, rental, or eBook options and place orders anytime, anywhere through an institution-branded, mobile optimized eCommerce platform. With Akademos’ proprietary Marketplace, students can save an average of 50-60 percent off the list price on their textbook and course materials.
Using Akademos’ new state-of-the-art Adoption & Analytics Portal, Life University’s faculty will be able to speed adoptions, reduce errors, and help lower course material costs—all while preserving academic freedom. Enhanced reporting and real-time analytics will give administrators valuable insights into the relationship between timely adoptions, course material cost, sell-through, and academic success.
“I am pleased to welcome Life University to Akademos,” CEO John Squires said. “We look forward to working with Life University to deliver our innovative bookstore services to students, while also assisting faculty with their textbook adoption needs.”
“We believe that our new partnership with Akademos will deliver an online bookstore solution that will dramatically reduce textbook costs and create a more convenient shopping experience for our students,” said William Jarr, executive vice president of finance at Life University. “We are confident that their user-friendly, mobile-optimized marketplace will also greatly expand their access to choose between a wide variety of textbook and course material options.”
