Book Systems, Inc. is proud to announce that Herzing University is now using Booktracks to distribute and collect textbooks. Booktracks was needed to replace the previous paper-and-pencil or Microsoft Word document method of tracking textbooks.

Herzing University was one of the first post-secondary institutions founded to prepare students for careers in the computer industry. Since 1965, business and computer-related education has been the focus of Herzing, even as it grew to encompass campuses in eight U.S. states and the founding of its Online Division, Herzing University Online. Using Booktracks to manage their textbooks is another example of the administration's foresight.

With Booktracks, the university is working to save money by reducing the replacement cost of textbooks and the ordering of un-needed textbooks by automated distribution and collection. Booktracks Textbook Management encourages accountability by all persons dealing with the textbooks.
