Success Story: eCommerce Implementation for Guide Dogs

We have a great success story from the Guide Dogs UK – the well known and well respected national UK charity which helps with providing mobility for the blind and partially sighted as well as supporting research, raising awareness and campaigning for the visually impaired.

Guide Dogs exists to provide life-changing services to the 360,000 people who are registered blind or partially sighted, and the two million people in the UK who are living with sight loss. Guide Dogs provides a range of services with and beyond the dog to help thousands of people with different needs lead confident, independent and fulfilling lives.


One of the services provided by Guide Dogs is a distribution of CustomEyes large print books for children with sight loss which means children and young people can have exactly the same books as their friends and classmates. This not only helps them keep up at school, but they can share books with friends too.

From Dr. Seuss to Shakespeare, from inspirational fiction to educational textbooks, there are over 4,200 large print books available – and counting. Each one is custom made with font size, spacing, color all tailored to a child’s individual needs.


To make the distribution of CustomEyes large print books easier and more flexible, Advanced Communities provided Guide Dogs with its eCommerce component for launching a slick and easy-to-use on-line shop on their site.
