While there is an increasing amount of focus on customer service there is growing dissatisfaction among customers with the service that they receive. Organizations that have seen customer satisfaction and customer loyalty rise are those that are focused on customer experience. For successful organization it is not about a service transaction but rather an experience transformation. This session will provide the opportunity to learn about organizations that have created outstanding customers experiences. The experience difference helps organizations realize it is not just about meeting everyday client expectations; it is about creating value for the clients that goes beyond just satisfaction. Creating outstanding clients experiences offers organizations the ability to differentiate themselves from other competitors. Every organization works on quality and service- only a few know how to offer great experiences.

As the course materials landscape changes, you might ask: “Couldn’t we save money by eliminating textbooks from the store and just selling general merchandise?" Participants will gain insight from colleges and universities who made the decision to remove their textbook departments and partner with a vendor to meet the needs of their students. This roundtable, consisting of higher ed decision makers, bookstores, and vendor partners will discuss: What led the college/university to the decision to take the textbook operation virtual? The positives and negatives of their experience. What has been the financial impact of this decision on the sales of the remaining product categories?

When new auxiliary buildings or athletic fields are being planned, bond funding may be an option. But you will need to know that you have captured all of the expenses for your project and also assured that enough revenue will be generated to pay the debt service.
Through this session, attendees will be able to better plan expenses for new construction financing and be able to understand possible sources of revenue and whether revenue will be adequate for debt pay-back.
