Only 1 in 4 Top US Credit Unions Are on a Path to Web Accessibility Compliance
A new report by Monsido, a leading software company, shows that out of the top 50 US Credit Unions, only 24% score over 70% compliance to WCAG 2.1 AA standards.
SAN DIEGO, October 13, 2020 (Newswire.com) - Monsido, a leader in website optimization and management software, released a report analyzing the websites of the Top 50 Credit Unions in the US (by asset size) to reveal the best performing websites across key elements including Web Accessibility, Content Quality Assurance, Response Time, and SEO.
Landmark Credit Union (WI), Police and Fire Federal Credit Union, Navy Federal Credit Union, Kinecta Federal Credit Union, and VyStar Credit Union were listed as the Top 5 Best Websites Overall.
With 26% of the US population living with a disability, accessibility is paramount to any website, especially those conducting core functions to daily life, like banking. Coupled with more financial organizations migrating their services to digital platforms, there has never been more of a need for these organizations to offer an accessible online presence to all their users. Yet, Monsido’s benchmarking report shows only 1 in 4 Top US Credit Unions are on a path to ADA compliance with Web Accessibility.
“A focus on proper website health and user experience, including web accessibility should be the norm for any organization,” said Robert France, Sales Director, North America at Monsido. “Yet in our experience, while banks and credit unions are no strangers to financial regulatory compliance, website accessibility and ADA compliance is still lacking in many organizations. We want to help change that and we hope this report helps shine a light on this issue.”
