Founded to Meet Your Demands
In 1994, Park University asked MBS to manage the textbook distribution for their extended learning program. Park University was faced with the daunting task of supplying course materials to their main campus in Parkville, Missouri as well as to 28 military bases throughout the United States. They were losing money due to high operational and shipping costs. Running a textbook program from their main campus became too overwhelming due to the excessive amounts of unsold, misplaced, and returned inventory. MBS was excited by the challenge and created an all-encompassing, customized, and streamlined textbook fulfillment program that assumed all responsibilities—student sales, inventory acquisition and management, and distribution. Park University's administrators saw great value in MBS's proactive response to their student demands and turned a textbook resource into a partner in education. The program was a success, and eventually lead to the formation of MBS Direct.
