Christopher Wirth, Manager, College Bookstore, Anne Arundel Community College
Glenda Lembicz, Manager, Learning Experiences, NACS
Jay Domagala, Mobile Developer, College Bookstore, Anne Arundel Community College
According to Student Watch 2013, 71% of college students indicate they own a smartphone-a 15% increase from the 2012 report. These devises are empowering today's students and changing the traditional path-to-purchase. If your college store does not have a mobile strategy - it should. While mobile websites and apps look similar, determining which is most suited to your store's needs depends upon a number of factors, including targeted audience, available budget, intended purpose, and required features.
This webinar will evaluate the benefits of a mobile website and an app, key differences between the two, and two stores strategies to engage students, drive sales, and ultimately, enhance the campus brand experience.

We will look at both sides of this argument with the goal of coming away with a well-rounded understanding of why a Card Transaction System makes good sense for many campuses.
