Industry-leading benefits enrollment software meets WCAG 2.0 accessibility guidelines

WEST DES MOINES, IOWA (March 27, 2018)—Businessolver®, a leader in SaaS-based benefits administration technology, announced today that its online benefits enrollment software, Benefitsolver®, is compliant with applicable Section 508 V2 and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 A and AA guidelines.

“One size does NOT fit all,” said Businessolver Chief Strategy Officer Rae Shanahan. “Empathy is a guiding principle at Businessolver and it would be insincere if we did not ensure our platform is readily available and accessible to all our users.”

Businessolver spent the last year enhancing the Benefitsolver system to ensure assistive devices such as screen readers and special keyboards are able to navigate the platform. Beyond assistive devices, the user experience was enhanced for those with cognitive disabilities or those who require more time in the system to make their way through their benefits enrollment.

“As we continue to grow and evolve, it’s extremely important that we make accessibility a priority for all,” said Shanahan. “Every person deserves equal access to their benefits information and enrollment options. By investing in our site’s accessibility, we ensure all employees have the opportunity to enroll in the health and welfare benefits that will impact them today, tomorrow, and beyond.”

As an industry-leader in innovative benefits administration solutions, Businessolver will continue to prioritize accessibility in future product development. Learn more at
