For SaaS market companies and software providers, digital accessibility has become critical to their success. It is simply impossible for any company wishing to do business with large, global corporations or public sector clients to not prioritize digital accessibility.
If you’re trying to market your SaaS or software solution, it’s crucial to understand how accessibility standards have evolved because not focusing on removing accessible barriers and officially documenting that process can block your digital asset from becoming successful.
Your customers, whether using your application directly or integrating your product into their business, require full compliance to all digital accessibility standards… and if you cannot provide clear, professional documentation stating your level of accessibility, your business can simply not compete.
Whether your target customer base is global corporations or the public sector, they will insist you provide a VPAT (Voluntary Product Accessibility Template) and an ACR (Accessibility Conformance Report).
We can get you accessible and prepared. When they ask, be ready to provide positive, accessible documentation. Don’t let accessibility barriers block the growth of your business.
VPT : Voluntary Product Accessibility Template
ACR : Accessibility Conformance Report
WCAG : Web Content Accessibility Guidelines
ICT : Information and Communications Technology
ADA : Americans with Disabilities Act
A VPAT is as it sounds, a template for which a company documents compliance with accessibility requirements — as is outlined in both Section 508 and the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). A VPAT can cover product accessibility for e-learning, websites, mobile apps, remote access tools, documentation, software, or hardware. No matter what they are for, a VPAT will always fulfill the same basic purpose: to serve as a template to both evaluate and demonstrate that your product or service is up to requirements when it comes to being accessible for all.
Once completed, a VPAT will be used to create your ACR, which will state what accessibility standards your digital asset has to meet. This process is critical to organizations to evaluate and credibly prove their content is accessible.

Digital accessibility lawsuits are skyrocketing, forcing thousands of businesses to work toward becoming accessible. It is not a simple process, and it takes time. However, the longer a platform or software program is non-accessible, the more exposed it becomes for a lawsuit.
The best way to avoid such lawsuits is to get proactive and get your digital assets accessible. Too many companies hesitate to do so and get sued. Why not cut out the costly judgements and legal fees and get your digital products accessible?
Organizations have realized the benefits of compliance and the consequences of non-compliance with the ADA guidelines. They are holding SaaS companies and software providers to high standards before considering purchasing or integrating their digital assets.
Removing barriers can not only save a company from costly penalties and time-consuming legal responses, but creates savings and profits as well.
