Taking steps to ensure your textbooks last their intended lifetime can significantly reduce your ongoing textbook replacement costs and shift savings to other budget areas. Destiny® Resource Manager™ can help to reduce your textbook losses each year by supporting accountability for your textbooks at the building, teacher, and student level.
Resource Manager's capabilities also allow you to take the necessary steps to utilize your surplus inventory where shortages exist and forecast your needs - based on enrollment, student schedules, current inventory, and more - to help your district reduce unnecessary ongoing textbook purchases.
