This report describes the analysis of the information system used at Guide Dogs for the Blind Association (GDBA) at the time of this project and the recommendations made based on the information gathered from surveys and interviews. Taking into consideration what information the staff needed and how they used the existing services, we developed recommendations to expand the use of information at GDBA. Usability, time to implement, and cost of the system were kept in mind during the entire process.
