Just 3 clicks: new online bookshop for IE University students

The IT Department has been working on IE University’s online book purchasing platform for students, developed by the IE Publishing Department.

In line with IE’s digitization and innovation strategy, IE Publishing reached an institutional collaboration agreement with Amazon last June to boost IE University’s online book sales. For this, the IT team has developed a web page as part of a campaign called Just 3 clicks.

The website includes a catalogue with every book used on an IE University degree course. More than 2,300 students now have at their disposal the nearly 700 titles they need to pursue their studies, in either digital or printed format, and can choose when, how and where they want to receive their orders.

In the six weeks since its implementation on September 1, we can confirm that this platform is proving a resounding success, with the 40% (and growing) of students who have used it saying they are 100% satisfied with the service. Our conversion levels are much higher than most e-commerce platforms.

Thanks to coordination and excellent collaboration and teamwork between IE Publishing and Faculty, the IT Department team developed this website between July and August last summer in record time! The IT Department is now working on extending this project to other IE Schools as of January 2017. We will keep you posted of further developments.
