Digital Echo and CityGrows announce partnership to improve accessibility and inclusion for local governments replacing PDF forms
CityGrows and Digital Echo are proud to announce a new partnership, created to provide complete document transformation and accessibility solutions for our clients. The partnership will provide a holistic approach that provides affordable, automated, digital workflow options for local governments to replace their ADA non-compliant PDF forms, as well as complete remediation and training solutions to ensure their other documents comply with accessibility standards. Digital Echo is adding CityGrows to its list of vetted "Solution Partners."
Digital accessibility is a core tenet of inclusive organizations and is essential to effective government. Services and information must be available to all residents. Unfortunately, most PDF documents and forms, even if fillable, are not accessible to people with disabilities. As legal challenges related to web accessibility exponentially increase, more governments are being proactive and replacing problematic PDFs.
“We haven’t seen a workflow automation or online forms tool that is as comprehensive, government-specific, or as affordable as CityGrows,” said John Mulvey, CPACC, Digital Echo Founder. “We’re excited to share it as part of our recommended strategies for improving local governments’ digital accessibility.”
Catherine Geanuracos, CityGrows’ CEO stated, “We are really excited to work with Digital Echo to bring more permits, licenses, and forms online for local governments. Their focus on inclusion and equity is really in line with our core values. Also, their in-house expertise and manner of working with clients is second to none. When governments transition from PDF forms to automated, digital CityGrows workflows, they see increased compliance, revenue, and improved efficiency, as well as accessibility gains.”
