Milestone’s Galexi™ CMS is the world’s first CMS that enables the creation of websites conforming to ADA guidelines

Santa Clara, CA | November 29, 2016:  Milestone announced today that its Galexi CMS is the first in the hospitality market to provide the necessary framework and technology to allow for the development of ADA conforming websites. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was enacted in 1990 by the US Congress, and it mandates that electronic and information technology must be accessible to people with disabilities. “US courts have interpreted ADA conformity for websites per the guidelines established by World Wide Web Consortium (W3C)” said Anil Aggarwal, Milestone’s Chief Executive Officer. “Milestone’s Galexi™ CMS system can now create websites that conform with the W3C’s WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) Level A and AA guidelines,” continued Mr. Aggarwal.

“Catering to those with disabilities is not just a mandate of the law, it’s the right thing to do and it makes good business sense” said Mr. Aggarwal.  Milestone’s Galexi™ CMS supports the technologies necessary to allow for the required changes in design, site programming and content modifications that allow websites to become conforming. By providing conforming access, businesses can expand their ability to cater to the approximately 20% of Americans who suffer from some form of disability.

Beyond catering to those that have disabilities, however, this technology can also protect Milestone customers from possible legal challenges. “Several businesses in New York, California and Pennsylvania have faced legal challenges in the past year due to their lack of conformity,” explained Mr. Aggarwal, with the new features, Milestone’s CMS system is now able to create websites that will conform to both WCAG Level A and AA guidelines, “we will be working closely with all Milestone clients over the coming weeks to enhance the usability of all sites powered by Milestone’s CMS system,” continued Mr. Aggarwal.

 Anyone interested in creating a website that conforms to ADA standards, or upgrading their current website, should reach out directly to Milestone by contacting its sales department at (866) 615-2516 or at sales@milestoneinternet.com.
