AAAtraq has formed a strategic partnership with California’s Independent Cities Risk Management Authority (ICRMA) to aid members and help them reduce the costs and time to understand, achieve and maintain ADA compliance. As the average age of populations in developed economies continues to rise, providing social and sheltered housing is a growth area for insurers and brokers.
ICRMA’s members are located throughout California and enjoy collaborative buying and other benefits as part of their membership. The partnership with AAAtraq is seen as a progressive move to add additional benefit in the face of increasing litigation against online discrimination.
“We’re delighted to form this new partnership with AAAtraq,” commented Beth Lyons of ICRMA. “Our members recognise the need not to discriminate by making their content ADA compliant but are often faced with a minefield of conflicting recommendations, vendor promises and software tools that leave them unsure where to turn and potentially exposed.”
AAAtraq provides a strategic approach to ADA compliance, allowing those responsible for managing risk to make an independent assessment of the situation their organization faces. The service puts the four cornerstones of a Compliance Identification and Management System (CIMS) in place to ensure effective compliance adherence, and replace the uncertainty felt by many with a high degree of control and confidence.
“AAAtraq’s analysis has shown that 94% of websites are failing compliance requirements, making the majority easy targets for aggressive lawyers. AAAtraq provides subscribers with a pathway to compliance, immediate insurance cover and access to top-level legal support in the event of a lawsuit being received,” said AAAtraq CEO, Lawrence Shaw.
The AAAtraq service is immediately available to ICRMA members through the partnership. “Receiving a lawsuit can be highly distractive at a time when organizations are struggling to cope with the fall out of Covid-19. ICRMA members will have more understanding and be more confident of meeting their ADA obligations knowing they have the support of a service that can help them not only initially become compliant, but stay compliant over the long term” concluded Shaw.
ICRMA has also negotiated three months complimentary access to Sitemorse, ensuring those members without services to test, check or measure their website have unlimited access to the Sitemorse service until the end of the year – an additional $600 of value to each member.
