Digital Lending Platform Provider Committed to Delivering Exceptional Customer Experience with Accessibility Initiative

Level Access, the global leader in digital accessibility software and services, announced that LendKey — the digital lending-as-a-service solution headquartered in New York, New York — selected Level Access as their digital accessibility compliance provider. With Level Access as its accessibility partner, LendKey will be able to better serve its growing customer base of all abilities.

LendKey provides white-labeled lending solutions to hundreds of banks and credit unions. Beyond a technical perspective to accessibility, the company required a partner with business strategy experience to build a sustainable accessibility advocacy program. Level Access’s expertise in the industry, particularly with banks and financial services, demonstrated a shared commitment to customer experience and security as engagement on websites and mobile applications become an increasingly significant part of everyday life. A focus on accessibility ensures people with disabilities and the growing aging population can fully participate in digital experiences.

Providing all of our customers access and the best experience on our platform is a core initiative for LendKey,” said Michael Hawkins, SVP of Engineering at LendKey. “Seamless accessibility for all is a concern as we continue to grow, and we found the right partner with Level Access to accomplish this goal.”

Access to technology is a profound enabling force in the lives of people with disabilities and the elderly,” said Tim Springer, CEO of Level Access. “LendKey’s proactive approach and commitment to providing all of their customers the same experience places them in a class we call the ‘vanguards of inclusion,’ and we are honored to be their partner in this journey.”

LendKey has deployed Level Access’s Accessibility Management Platform (AMP) software, audit, and training solutions.
