The Western Associated Students Bookstore is excited to share we have completed migration of our Inventory Management and Point of Sale system.
Background: The Bookstore received an end-of-life notice from our current vendor that our system is going end of life as of July 2021. This system is the backbone of the operations of the Bookstore. The system includes our electronic point of sale (ePOS), website, registers, inventory management....everything! Through an official RFP (request for proposal) process, Prism|RBS was selected as our new vendor.
The Go-Live occurred on 7/2/2021!
What this means for you:
The biggest change you’ll notice is the Bookstore website. The new site will have the same URL www.bookstore.wwu.edu and will have an updated look and enhanced accessibility functionality. When in store shopping resumes, the new system offers the option to keep a record of your purchase history for easy returns and exchanges. There will be new capabilities to support offsite events, such as commencement, when those activities resume.
Where we are now:
- Continued work will occur with campus partners and PRISM to test and close out the project.
- The Bookstore team will be diving deep in utilizing the system, updating standard work, and identifying any remaining issues.
- Instore shopping resumes at the Bookstore as of 7/6/2021! Store hours for the Summer are Monday – Friday, 8:30am-4:30pm.
