The company adheres to Section 508 guidelines, ensuring that WebFOCUS solutions promote maximum accessibility to the widest range of users, including those with disabilities.
Section 508 requires federal agencies to meet specific accessibility standards when buying, developing, maintaining, or using information technology. These standards ensure that electronically delivered information is available to as many people as possible, including those with special needs. Information Builders designs and maintains Section 508-compliant functionality in its application development and reporting solutions. Those features will be regularly tested to meet accessibility standards.
Additionally, Information Builders' consulting organization will conform to appropriate regulations when developing and maintaining applications for customers who are subject to the provisions of Section 508. Documentation can also be provided to assist customers in using WebFOCUS to build their own Section 508-compliant applications.
"Our compliance with Section 508 demonstrates Information Builders' commitment to providing high-quality products and services that can be accessed and leveraged by all potential users, including individuals with disabilities," said Gerald Cohen, CEO of Information Builders. "Our robust solutions empower federal agencies to meet their critical compliancy standards, while sharing valuable information among their employees, their partners, and the citizens they serve."
