WNA InfoTech, a leading provider of Web development and digital marketing, announced today a partnership with accessiBe , the #1 web accessibility solution for Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) compliance. Together with accessiBe, WNA Infotech offers a managed compliance service to help (clientele) maintain ADA compliance online, which is both affordable and easy to implement.
The American Disabilities Act of 1990 has been extended by the DOJ to include all business websites. Since 2017 there has been a 300% year over year increase in lawsuits and demand letters hitting businesses of all sizes and industries.
What does that mean? If your website is not accessible to people with disabilities, you can get sued for 5 or more figures.
What is Accessible? Technically speaking, accessibility is defined by the requirements laid out by Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and it’s often conflated with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
Despite the growing number of accessibility lawsuits, many businesses have been slow to adopt an accessibility strategy. Today, it’s estimated that companies without accessible sites are losing $6.9 billion a year to competitors whose sites are accessible. Until recently there was no reasonable option for anyone other than the largest enterprise companies to make websites accessible.
In recent months, more consumers are shopping online than ever before. With an increase in online shopping, ensuring eCommerce sites are fully accessible to people with disabilities is becoming increasingly important for retailers. Website accessibility not only protects online businesses legally, it enhances the businesses’ reputation and boosts sales by enabling retailers to serve people with a large demographic of shoppers that require additional assistance.
“With more customers shopping online, our goal was to find a solution that allows our retail clients to comply, and continue to comply regardless of how many ongoing changes they make to their sites, without any additional effort on their part. accessiBe provides exactly that. The solution is easy to implement, it’s affordable and helps online retailers mitigate the risk of lawsuits. But most importantly, it enables our clients to provide a better online shopping experience to those with disabilities.” The timing of this partnership couldn’t be better, as we have only just begun the process of becoming a B Corporation. We are passionate about business being a force for the well, and this service is aligned with our mission and core values.” – Amit Dudani, Sales & Marketing Director of WNA Infotech.
