Oct 18, 2023
Digital accessibility solution provider positioned with the highest score in the current offering category and best fit for organizations seeking a platform-first partner
ARLINGTON, VA, Oct. 18, 2023 — Level Access, the trusted provider of enterprise digital accessibility solutions, today announced it was named a Leader in Forrester Research, Inc.’s first-ever evaluation of digital accessibility platforms: The Forrester Wave™: Digital Accessibility Platforms, Q4 2023. In the report, Level Access is positioned as the provider with the highest score in the current offering category, receiving the highest scores possible in the Platform, Roadmap, Partner Ecosystem, Pricing Flexibility/Transparency, and Supporting Services and Offerings criteria.
According to the report, Level Access is the only solution to earn all superior or on-par scores for its current offering. Its unified platform is particularly strong in policy configuration, embedded learning, program analytics, and usability, all aspects of the product that enable an ongoing, continuous, and collaborative digital accessibility practice. Forrester also noted that the Level Access Platform is the best fit for companies looking for a vendor with a platform-first approach and strong enterprise-ready features.
“This first-of-its-kind report demonstrates that digital accessibility is evolving. It’s no longer a nice-to-have; it’s a priority. The strength of our solution supporting that priority is now backed by Forrester analysis,” said Tim Springer, Founder and CEO of Level Access. “Our position as a Leader on the Wave, with the highest score in the current offering category and the highest score possible in the product roadmap criterion, proves to us that we have anticipated both the tools that organizations need to make a sustainable impact on accessibility today and the product plan that ensures our solution is evolving to meet the needs of tomorrow.”
As a growing number of organizations understand the advantages of creating accessible digital experiences, their dedication to and investment in platform-first digital accessibility programming is on the rise. Specifically, the report notes that buyers are seeking platforms that enable them to proactively embed accessibility in design and development, rather than fixing accessibility issues after the fact.
The report also observes how reference customers praise Level Access’s willingness to listen to and innovate around their needs, as well as its platform’s ease of use for business owners, not just engineers.
“Level Access continues to evolve with the dynamic needs of our customers, from engineers and makers all the way to the C-Suite,” continued Springer. “We are honored for this recognition and would like to thank Forrester for acknowledging and researching the critical importance of digital accessibility in building a better world.”
Particularly after its strategic merger with eSSENTIAL Accessibility in August 2022, Level Access has set new standards in the digital accessibility solutions market. The company’s most recent innovations include a Figma plugin for designers and enhanced user management permissions.
