One of the trickiest issues in any web development project is juggling the needs of different types of people who may visit and use the site. Evanston-based Inclusion Solutions provides products that help businesses and buildings open up to people with disabilities. But the Evanston-based company is also an energetic advocate for issues these people face.
Consider these different access scenarios:
- Is your aging aunt in a wheelchair but itching to roll to the polls and cast her vote? Election officials can see accessible voting machines, as well as ramps and signs via the web store.
- Are you deaf or hard-of-hearing and wish you could pick up a quick meal at a drive-thru restaurant as you come home from the late shift? Find out how Inclusion Solutions offers OrderAssist to streamline communications (and sales!) between customers and employees in several videos available on the web site and YouTube.
- Do you own a store in an old building and wonder if you might miss business if people can’t get in the door? See how their BigBell — an affordable, ADA-compliant system — can help seniors, people with disabilities and even moms with strollers come on in and shop.
The new site Grotto created not only sells a wealth of products, but it reflects the heart of the Inclusion Solutions brand by embracing their commitment to advocacy with links to resources and statistics. Check out the relaunch at www.inclusionsolutions.com and pass it along to fellow business-owners or people in your life who are looking for greater access.
