With the current pandemic increasing consumers’ reliance on web and mobile as their sole means of banking, many organizations are realizing that barrier-free access has become more important than ever, and a website or app that’s not accessible to users with disabilities may be a bigger compliance risk than originally anticipated.
Learn how FirstBank’s commitment to best-in-class customer experience led to an organization-wide digital accessibility program. Melissa Alamo, Software Delivery Manager for FirstBank, discusses about the bank’s multi-phased, and multi-departmental, approach to ensuring their customer-facing technology is accessible, including:
- Assessing their customer facing technology
- Developing a prioritized roadmap
- Assembling a multi-departmental steering committee
- Training Product, QA, and Development Teams
- Implementing a protocol and supporting tools for sustainability
Whether you need to address accessibility in the short-term or are looking for ways to strengthen your overall accessibility program, learn from FirstBank’s experiences and get practical guidance on developing and implementing a plan that works for your organization.
