To guarantee inclusivity, your business applications need to suit the requirements of each employee – now and into the future. That means the importance of accessibility cannot be overlooked.

Inclusion by Design

It’s been 25 years since accessibility in technology started to be legislated for and although the legislation may have changed, the objective has not.

As a Microsoft Gold Partner it is essential for CPS to not only share with our customers the importance of inclusivity and accessibility, but to demonstrate this within our own workforce with the tools and systems we use.

Microsoft’s mission statement is “Empower every person and every organisation on the planet to achieve more”.  In truly considering the word ‘every’ and ensuring this really does apply to every person, Microsoft implemented “Inclusion by Design” as a design principle to ensure accessibility of all its solutions.
