BarrierBreak Launches the SAAS Accessibility Toolkit – a Guide to Implement Accessibility in SAAS Products
The “Why” and “How” of Accessibility of SAAS Products.
BarrierBreak, the leaders in offshore digital accessibility testing and consulting firm, launches the SAAS Accessibility Toolkit – a guide to implement accessibility in SAAS products. The toolkit has been launched marking the International Day of People with Disabilities 2021.
The Software as a Service (SAAS) market is growing rapidly, with over 20% of the Fortune 500 companies using software as a service. But what makes this market so unique? A competitive advantage that SAAS products have is their accessibility from any device, anywhere in the world.

As per the Global Market Report 2021, the SAAS market is expected to reach $436.9 billion in 2025 at a CAGR of 12.5%. Looking at trends in the market, it is clear that SAAS will continue to grow in popularity for business and start-ups.
However, most of the SAAS providers are unintentionally leaving out a segment of potential customers as they have not considered incorporating accessibility in their products.
More than 1 billion people worldwide have a disability of some kind and despite this, most SAAS products are not accessible to people with disabilities. This is a problem because disabled users can’t use these products at all or have to put a lot of effort into using them.
As a leader in offshore Digital Accessibility testing and consulting, BarrierBreak believes that technology creates a limitless future for people with disabilities by providing accessible solutions. And with this belief, we have launched the SAAS Accessibility Toolkit that would facilitate and support SAAS providers to incorporate accessibility in their solutions.
Having a good SAAS product doesn’t mean that your customers will procure it. For organizations focusing on Inclusion, the accessibility of your SAAS solution will be a key point in their decision making. Organizations today want to ensure they are promoting an inclusive culture and it would be plain wrong to discriminate against people with disabilities and deny them equal access.
The SAAS Accessibility toolkit aims to facilitate better understanding of how to implement accessibility and where to start. It will give you a roadmap to work towards and implement accessibility in your SAAS products in the most efficient manner.
“When building a SaaS product, you should always ask yourself whether your product is accessible to people with disabilities. If the answer is no, you have two options: either make it accessible or find a reason why it shouldn’t be. The SAAS accessibility Toolkit designed by BarrierBreak shines a light on the need for accessible SAAS solutions and scaling your business.” Shilpi Kapoor, CEO & Founder, BarrierBreak.
