and Tenon

Nashua, NH – July 14, 2015 – TPGi (TPG) and Tenon, LLC today announce a sales and marketing partnership that delivers world-class automated testing for accessibility in conformance with governmental and web guidelines. These guidelines include the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines Version 2 (WCAG 2.0) and Section 508 requirements.

In today’s diverse environment, the Internet is becoming the dominant location for people with disabilities to find information and to transact business. It is vitally important for businesses, educational institutions, and governmental agencies to take appropriate steps to ensure their sites and applications are accessible to all visitors.

TPGi believes that the tool is the preeminent automated testing software to identify accessibility issues without the “clutter” of false positive reporting. Mike Paciello, founder and president of TPGi observes, “We have long believed that manual testing is the most effective method to uncover complex accessibility issues within web, mobile and software environments. Because our clients have come to expect a high level of integrity in TPGi’s quality assurance (QA) analysis, we have traditionally avoided automated testing tools. However, with Tenon, we now have a tool that integrates well with existing client installed QA applications, includes the flexibility of accommodating cross-platform plug-ins and complements the software quality assurance manual testing process. We are thrilled to partner with the Tenon team and to be offering to our clients.”

TPGi and Tenon are partnering to ensure the highest level of accessibility services. Tenon will continue to offer software as a service via their website, Partnering with TPGi allows Tenon to offer custom installations to select TPGi clients. “Our guiding principle has always been ‘Accessibility for All,’” notes Tenon co-founder Asa Baylus. “Partnering with TPGi expands our market and makes that a reality.”

About Tenon debuted in March 2015 and immediately garnered an impressive list of Fortune 500 customers. Founded by Karl Groves, an international leader in web accessibility standards and compliance, and Asa Baylus, a well-known developer and user-interface designer, Tenon’s industry-disruptive software seeks to establish a new standard for accessibility testing. Tenon’s guiding principle is and always has been “Accessibility for All.” This means integrating accessibility testing into developer workflow, reducing false-positives to maximize efficiency, benchmarking tests one step ahead of international standards, and finding ways to reach developers traditionally shut out of the automated testing market.
