BloomCU partners with User1st to tackle growing ADA compliance needs
COTTONWOOD HEIGHTS, UT (April 5, 2018) — BloomCU, an award-winning credit union website design agency, recently partnered with User1st to better serve credit union’s needs for ADA compliance. ADA compliance is a growing concern because of the many demand letters and lawsuits brought upon credit unions in recent months.
Unfortunately, many credit union website designs are outdated and unusable for disabled visitors. As a design agency, BloomCU helps clients create better user experiences, but recognizes a need for compliance audits.
In accounting, third-party auditors verify a credit union’s books and check for potential errors. In ADA compliance, a third-party auditor offers a similar value proposition: the auditor verifies compliance work that has been done during the design, copywriting, and development of a credit union website and reveals any accessibility issues that need to be fixed.
BloomCU has partnered with User1st because User1st specializes in ADA compliance auditing. And beyond auditing alone, User1st’s services include a plug-and-play accessibility tool, automated scanning, live user testing, and remediation.
“ADA compliance has become a vital issue for credit union website design. Our purpose in partnering with User1st is to protect our clients by offering them a comprehensive solution,” said Derik Krauss, co-founder of BloomCU. “We carefully considered many ADA compliance services available to credit unions and chose to partner with User1st because they offer the best value: automated scans, manual audits, and remediation to fix issues, all at a better price than their competitors.”
BloomCU LLC helps credit unions design results-driven websites that increase loans and accounts. They work with credit unions in 25 states across the US, many of which have won awards or recognition for their websites from CUNA, MAC, The Financial Brand, Credit Union Times, CUES, and others. The company has a reputation for designing beautiful websites that feature intelligent technologies (e.g., personalization, chatbots, integrated origination experiences) and then optimizing those sites continuously to grow loans, deposits, and membership.
