Non-profits often struggle with managing their resources as a result of underfunding. Our project attempts to address the SYDRC’s growing clientele base by providing the staff with a new digital management system. We achieved this goal by analyzing potential cloud-based systems and determining the needs and requirements of the SYDRC. Our team then iteratively developed a software-based solution. To get the staff acclimated to the new system, we conducted in- person training sessions and put together a user manual that details how to use and maintain the system. Ultimately, we provided the centre with a new data management system and room booking web application that catered to the specific needs of the SYDRC while being both cost-effective and intuitive to use.
