Industry leading Procure-to-Pay Platform continues accessibility to people with disabilities
Cleveland, Ohio - August 14, 2017 - BuyerQuest, a leader in enterprise procure-to-pay technology, today announced the continued compliance of the BuyerQuest platform with web content accessibility guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. The technology’s continued adherence to the guidelines published by the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) ensures that users with visual impairments, such as those who are blind or have low vision, can access the BuyerQuest platform to perform procure-to-pay functions associated with their roles in the organization.
WCAG 2.0, originally published in 2008, provides website guidelines based on four principles: that the site is perceivable, operable, understandable and robust. The document includes testable success criteria that designers can use to verify compliance.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, more than 3.4 million Americans aged 40 years or older are either legally blind or visually impaired. Blindness or vision problems are among the top 10 disabilities for adults aged 18 years or older.
“Because BuyerQuest simplifies the buying process for everyone in an organization, it must be available to all users.” Said Nick Cron, Chief Technology Officer of BuyerQuest. “Having had the opportunity to work with the visually impaired throughout my career, I know the critical importance of continued support for WCAG 2.0 to assure broad access to our technology”
