Earlier this year, customers received an End of Life notification for Compliance Sheriff , a web accessibility compliance tool owned by Appgate. Service and support for both the commercial version of the platform and their free service, Cynthia Says™, will cease on December 31, 2021 and their customers will need to find an alternative to maintain their web accessibility compliance.

With the risks and rewards of digital accessibility of rising concern to global enterprises, it’s a great time to reevaluate your organization’s needs and assess the features and services you need to future-proof your approach, and deliver a truly inclusive, top-performing digital experience.

Crownpeak’s enterprise web accessibility compliance solution, Digital Quality Management (DQM) has you covered. Designed to help even the most complex organizations achieve WCAG and ADA accessibility compliance, we make it easier than ever to achieve your organization’s accessibility and digital quality goals. And we can get you going fast.

A smooth transition for accessibility compliance

Like Compliance Sheriff, DQM will automatically scan your website to identify accessibility issues. Our flexible dashboards make it easy to understand your compliance progress and simplify the remediation process across websites and teams.

A dedicated Customer Success Manager will help make the transition seamless. We care deeply about our customers’ success, which is a reason that we recently were named a top rated accessibility testing tool by TrustRadius , an independent third-party review website.

More bang for your buck

An important difference between Compliance Sheriff and DQM is that our platform is an end-to-end digital governance platform.

Alongside web accessibility compliance, DQM can also be used to manage a wide range of digital policies and standards. Instead of using piecemeal tools, you can gain central visibility into issues with SEO, brand standards, privacy and legal compliance, localization requirements, and more across your web presence from a central, unified platform. These additional features are available out-of-the-box and with no additional costs. DQM features also include:

  • Advanced scanning against WCAG 2.X guidelines: Check for accessibility issues on any HTML or JavaScript website
  • Prioritized, actionable fixes: Fix issues quickly with prioritized lists and easy-to-understand explanations
  • Progress reporting: Report on issues over time to demonstrate progress towards compliance goals
  • CMS integrations: Check for accessibility issues before publication right within your CMS
  • Page Checker: Use our browser extension to quickly check for issues on individual pages
  • Dedicated support: Take advantage of expert help to guide program management and deliver results
  • Manual testing: Services available to address the human element of accessibility

Future-proof your accessibility program

Using DQM can save you from ever having to go through a costly and complex transition process again. We continually update our accessibility checkpoints with WCAG standards, so you’re covered as standards evolve like the upcoming release of WCAG 2.2 later this year. The ability to add any custom criteria, such as your own brand and business standards, gives your organization flexibility as your compliance and marketing needs evolve.

Unlike any other solution on the market, you can also scan for issues on JavaScript websites. If your development team is exploring this technology, DQM is a must.
