Follett upgraded the cash register and point of sale system and recently completed a $100,000 upgrade to the facility. New features include a text rental program that saves students money.
An upcoming feature will be BookLook and BookNow which will provide students access while registering for classes to see the required textbooks for each particular class and the cost. It will also include an option to purchase the textbook online at the time of registration.
