This was completed for a university assignment.
ReadBooks Online (RBO) went through a significant expansion in the past 10 years with ideas including adding the ability for users to request books and audiobooks. Although IT management is centralised in its head office, there are several other employees elsewhere. After a customer satisfaction survey, it was found that substantial improvements could be made to their current catalogue system. A survey was carried out to find current customer trends and desires. The result of this is that any client of RBO can request books or audiobooks not currently in the RBO catalogue to be added for purchase.
