VIENNA, VIRGINIA — Level Access (formerly SSB BART Group) announced a new endorsement by the American Bankers Association (ABA), through its subsidiary, the Corporation for American Banking. The announcement was made on Monday at the ABA’s Regulatory Compliance Conference in Orlando.
The suite of products offered by Level Access helps financial institutions test, fix, and maintain their websites and mobile apps to ensure they are compliant with accessibility standards and accessible to users with disabilities. The ABA chose Level Access after a lengthy review process, citing the company’s history in—and single focus on—digital accessibility.
“Level Access’s product set offers banks several ways to address their accessibility process,” said Bryan Luke, chairman of ABA’s Endorsed Solutions Banker Advisory Council. “Member banks can mitigate potential legal risks while ensuring website accessibility compliance for those customers with disabilities.” Luke is also president and COO of Hawaii National Bank in Honolulu.
Level Access CEO and Founder Tim Springer said, “Online banking is a great convenience for all, but for many people with disabilities, it can be a critical service that allows them to stay independent. We are delighted to partner with the American Bankers Association to help its members achieve more accessible websites and mobile apps.”
ABA member banks will receive discounted pricing by Level Access.
