We believe one of the best ways to help independent college stores succeed — and stay independent — is to offer access to one of the largest inventories of used books in the industry. Over the years, new connections and new partnerships have widened our network, and company-wide, our mix of new, used and digital course materials is unparalleled.
What does it take to offer a total store solution? Is it superior support? State-of-the-art hardware? Software that continually delivers? All of the above. A complete solution has to fit the needs of stores of all sizes and that's what MBS Systems has been supplying since 1984. Continually evolving products and services, and the training to put them to use makes operating your store easier than ever before.
MBS Direct has led the industry, partnering with over 700 schools since our direct-to-student course material fulfillment model launched in 1992. In 2017-2018, we served 169,829 K-12 students and 440,855 higher education students. Our numbers grow each year. Over the years, our network has expanded to include more than 2,100 vendors and publishers of all size, allowing us to provide our partner schools with the security of knowing their students will receive the course materials they need, before class begins.
