Common Accessibility Challenges for Small Businesses
Lack integrated development team
You worked with a contractor to build your application or website but don’t have a dedicated dev team
No ticketing systems in place
You don’t have bug-tracking and ticketing systems to manage dev requests so code updates seem unmanageable
Your website uses off-the-shelf CMS
You may use a CMS or sitebuilder like Elementor, Divi, or Wix and can’t access the underlying source code to make modifications
You lack a concrete accessibility program
You are likely the only individual at your company thinking about accessibility, much less have a program in place
Digital accessibility-related lawsuits are a real threat. You need to improve your website’s accessibility and document conformance to reduce legal risk.
You want to open your business to more customers by ensuring an accessible experience while reducing your legal risk of an accessibility lawsuit.
What’s Keeping You from Achieving Those Goals
- Knowledge – You lack knowledge about what and how to make your site accessible. Chances are your site has accessibility issues if it was built using an out-of-the-box CMS. You aren’t sure what to do to make it more accessible.
- Cost– You need a solution that is affordable. You don’t have a big budget or a lot of time to dedicate. You need a fast and cost-effective way to make it more accessible and reduce your legal risk.
- Unable to Access Code – While you may not be able to fully rebuild modules and templates, there are a lot of things you can do to make improvements and document those efforts. ARC Platform will surface many of these issues that you can address.
