SECNY Federal Credit Union partnered with ACS Web Design and SEO for a redesign of their credit union website design. While SECNY FCU's previous website included state-of-the-art features for its time, SECNY FCU was looking to modernize their website to make it more user-friendly, both for their members as well as site administrators looking to make website updates.
In addition to a modernized look and feel, SECNY FCU needed a new website design to comply with newly enforced ADA website compliance regulations.
ADA Compliant Credit Union Website Design
Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) has been amended to include accessibility requirements for websites and software. ADA website compliance requires an organization to make the information on their site equally accessible for both people with disabilities as well as people who do not have disabilities.
What this means for businesses is that their websites must include certain accessibility features for potential customers or clients with disabilities.
Any organization whose website doesn't include these accessibility features may be subject to expensive litigation costs. Companies are increasingly facing costly lawsuits because their website fails to meet accessibility standards. This has resulted in what the Business Journal of CNY has described as "a drastic spike in lawsuits in what is arguably the fastest growing type of litigation in New York state."
The new SECNY Federal Credit Union was made with ADA compliant website accessibility features built in to the website's design and functionality. The ACS team of regulation compliance experts performed extensive ADA compliance audits throughout the credit union website design process, ensuring the new, final version of secny.org included ADA compliant accessibility features.
If your website isn't ADA compliant, don't wait until it's too late and you're facing costly lawsuits.
