The Paciello Group has launched the Accessibility Resource Center (ARC), an accessibility platform designed to let retail managers and teams access analytics, issue reports, eLearning modules, a knowledge base of developer techniques and support. All these tools are available from a single location, helping retailers optimize their accessibility-related assets and activities.
Collecting these resources under a single portal can help retailers manage and measure their initiatives more effectively and accurately against the needs of the business, developers and compliance offices. The solution regularly scans digital assets to highlight violations and unearth insights about the underlying causes of accessibility defects, and allows for greater insight into the impact of business goals.
The core components of ARC include:
- Monitoring: A dashboard allows retailers to compare performance over time, prioritize remediation and measure the progress of accessibility efforts;
- Document Library: A repository for accessibility audits and reviews, including both manual and automated tests;
- KnowledgeBase: A continuously updated self-serve library of accessibility techniques, including desktop and responsive web; and
- Tutor: A series of self-paced accessibility eLearning modules.
