Nashua, NH and Woburn, MA – HiSoftware, a leading provider of Web accessibility compliance and SharePoint security solutions, and Percussion Software, a leading provider of web content management (WCM) software, today announced the companies have signed a strategic technology alliance. The partnership will allow Percussion to offer HiSoftware products to their customers, providing complete solutions for ensuring content created in the WCM system is accessible.

“Managing web content should be easy,” said Jeff Gore, Senior Vice President of Sales at Percussion Software. Adding, “Your web content management software should leverage engaging content and full accessibility to create a great experience for your visitors, not create more work for your team.”

Percussion provides WCM software that helps businesses increase traffic, drive conversion, and improve social engagement. It gives marketers full control over their content and increased agility to adapt to an ever-changing digital marketing landscape. HiSoftware Compliance Sheriff® gives organizations an easy, cost-effective way to integrate a comprehensive and automated solution for Web accessibility testing and monitoring. It enables organizations to easily validate their websites, intranets, and portals, including attached documents, for compliance against US and International standards for Web accessibility (WCAG and Section 508).

Using Compliance Sheriff, users can test content as it is created in Percussion CMS for accessibility issues to pinpoint the location of errors and provide information on how to remediate the issues prior to publishing. It also can audit existing sites to identify accessibility issues and provide ongoing monitoring to ensure web content remains compliant.

“Building best practices for accessibility into the development lifecycle is the key to making sure your content starts and stays compliant,” said Kurt Mueffelmann, President and CEO of HiSoftware. “Pairing Percussion and HiSoftware’s products together make it easy to create quality websites and reap the benefits of increased reach and minimized risk.”
