BookstoresWe are experts in providing a custom bookstore solution for your institution. We understand each school is different and the bookstore should reflect that.
The University of Central Arkansas is an institution with 10,000 students located in Conway, Arkansas. BBA handles every aspect of managing this business for UCA. When you are a partner with BBA, we will customize to fit the needs of the institution, not the other way around.
Just in Time
BBA has the capability to create a temporary textbook depot on your campus. BBA has found this model successful in situations where a full service bookstore was not feasible. One of the advantages of this model is that it provides boots on the ground during the critical beginning and ending segments of the semester.
Our satellite option is very similar to the “Just In Time” solution. We can fulfill textbook and supply sales at any number of satellite campuses. This offer is unique to BBA.
In situations where there is no other feasible option, BBA can provide an online store to satisfy the needs of the students on your campus.
Financial Aid Integration is the backbone of the bookstore operation. Our team is ready to make sure your students’ transactions are accurate, timely, and safe. You can have peace of mind knowing your bookstore is fully integrated with your student information system.
BBA has its own internal Information Technology department. Our proprietary Point-Of-Sale System will seamlessly link with any financial aid package on the market. In addition, our team will perform all the necessary programming needed to integrate without any cost to your institution.
