”Ulyngo is providing a service that is long overdue – allowing College campuses to create a unique marketplace tailored to their needs. I can think of no Campus entity (College Bookstores) better positioned for the implementation. They already have working relations with Campus IT, Student information, housing, etc. This could be a big move for the College Store Industry. As textbook sales have been on the steady decline, new ways to generate revenue is a must.Carlo ChavezAssistant Director of Course Materials, UC Davis Stores
