One of the biggest challenges in web development is to implement modern technology without sacrificing performance, usability and most importantly, accessibility, a key requirement for an institution in the education industry like Msacroa.org
When Msacroa approached us, their goal was simple: We need a sustainable, efficient and most importantly, ADA-compliant site for the next 10 years.
The challenge, however, was to complete the project before their annual conference and then migrate their legacy system into the new one so it could be available during the event.
scope & timeline
A key feature in the new Msacroa.org was to make the site fully accessible to people with disability.
The Americans with Disability Act (ADA) prohibits discrimination based on disability. Online, the ADA compliance is not fully defined, however, ADA-based complains can already carry penalties for the owner or operator of a non-ADA compliant site.
The accepted standard for ADA compliance is implementing the W3C WCAG 2.0. For this project, we implemented Level AA across all front-end interfaces.
Msacroa organizes a meeting conference each year, so we created a system in which system administrators can create “sub-sites” for each conference.
Sub-sites are all managed from the same backend and their deployment can be done in 10 minutes.

We received a very detailed and realistic scope of work and estimate and communicated with me the whole time to ensure the project was completed successfully.Autumn W. - Vice President For Information Technology
