UserWay and ShortPoint Collaborate to Improve Intranet Site Accessibility
ShortPoint incorporates UserWay accessibility solutions into its platform, ensuring 100% accessibility for six million+ users with impairments.
Fremont, CA: "The UserWay + ShortPoint partnership is a powerful combination of enterprise-class intranet site creation tools and the world's #1 automated accessibility solution. The goal of ensuring rapid time-to-market for SharePoint site accessibility and ADA compliance is now easily within reach," said Allon Mason, founder, and CEO at UserWay. "With ShortPoint powered by UserWay, an accessible SharePoint site is not only friction-free and cost-effective but looks great while remaining aligned with your company's brand guidelines. This partnership allows all of your employees and users to access your digital content and services without barriers while sending a clear message of inclusion, diversity, and equality."
In light of the new agreement, ShortPoint will offer a special webinar on December 1, 2021, at 11:00 am EST with panelists Sami AlSayyed, Founder and CEO, and Mohamad Yahia, Product Manager of ShortPoint.
UserWay, the world's largest AI-powered web accessibility firm, and ShortPoint, the premier intranet design software provider, collaborated to ensure SharePoint sites developed with ShortPoint are completely accessible and ADA compliant. UserWay's accessibility solution guarantees that websites are WCAG and ADA compliant, making them accessible to the blind, visually impaired, and disabled users. The new collaboration is a striking demonstration of the necessity of accessibility and compliance not just for publicly visible sites but also for intranets and digital information accessed by employees and team members of businesses.
With over 60 million individuals living with impairments in the United States alone, web accessibility has become an increasingly tricky and crucial problem - in 2020, and there were over 3,500 accessibility-related lawsuits filed against commercial websites that violated ADA standards. The UserWay AI-Powered accessibility solution not only protects businesses against accessibility litigation but also offers a more inclusive user experience for the world's 1+ billion individuals who live with impairments.
ShortPoint aspires to enable its users to have easy-to-use and highly accessible intranet sites by providing them with innovative intranet design software that caters to millions of people globally. Teams can easily construct high-quality intranet sites to match the needs of a fast-paced corporate environment since there are no formal coding constraints on their inventiveness. ShortPoint's addition of the UserWay solutions gives all of their user's complete access to their intranet design tools, allowing them to create unified and user-friendly intranet sites with extensive integration possibilities. Most notably, intranet sites that are ADA compliant more rapidly and efficiently.
