Introduction

Guide Dogs provides 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.

Challenge

Guide Dogs wanted to enhance their distribution of large-print books (called CustomEyes) 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 share books with friends, too. From Dr. Seuss to Shakespeare and 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, and color all tailored to a child’s individual needs.

Solution

To make the distribution of CustomEyes books easier and more flexible, Advanced Communities provided Guide Dogs with its AC eCommerce for Non-Profits app to launch a modern and easy-to-use online shop.

Benefits and Results

AC eCommerce for Non-Profits provides numerous advantages for launching a beautiful, branded online storefront that allows customers to make completely secure payment transactions through credit and debit cards (as well as offline payment options). It also ensures flexible and carefree order, shipment, and tax management.
