Advantage

Elements of the program that have proven to be highly satisfactory are the testing of new titles to determine potential marketability and sales success, forecasting of timing and inventory needs, accurate and timely monthly reporting and an excellent payment history. We look forward to continued growth, success and involvement in this program.

WBDS Advantage


Software System


We work for you by determining what's best for your unique business.


Through a unique and dynamic proprietary software system, we are able to customize book selections based on the consumer purchases in each store.


On a nightly basis, WBDS’s system analyzes an astounding 1 million-plus rows of detailed sales information.


Our VMI software system enables us to analyze sales data by store across thousands of SKUs according to price point, category, sub-category, author, cover type, and region.


WBDS’s immense system resources not only enable us to provide our customers with the best possible selection of books available. They also allow us to recognize upswings or downtrends in specific sub-category areas.

As trends are realized, WBDS pinpoints important areas for growth and partners with our customers to build cross merchandised/in-line book departments that work to not only increase unit sales on top selling titles but also related product sales as well.
