What You Need to Know About ADA Compliant Websites dives into the most highly discussed topic in the multifamily housing space and beyond, digital accessibility compliance.

“We live in an interconnected world, one that is reliant on the Internet to deliver information, services and resources through multiple online channels,” Kirby explained. “As physical buildings become more digitally dependent on their websites to transact and interact with both prospective and existing customers, these services must be accessible to everyone.”
Joining Kirby is property management expert Ernest F. Oriente of PowerHour an industry professional since 1988 and the author of SmartMatch Alliances. Oriente and Kirby have presented over 100 webcasts together, covering an array of topics from strategies on maintaining optimum performance of multifamily communities to the latest technology trends.

Oriente responded, “Kerry lives and breathes all things digital in the multifamily housing arena, and I am excited to join him in this discussion on the growing need for digital accessibility across the web. As with all the material we produce for our webcast series, we strive to deliver relevant, straightforward information to our audience, so they can better prepare for the newest wave of developments in the market.”
“Over a billion people, approximately 15 percent of the world’s population, have some form of a disability that makes accessing the web difficult,” Kirby concluded. “Given the immense size of the modern-day market and the highly regulated world of rental housing, multifamily housing operators must be willing to invest in and implement a comprehensive approach to digital inclusion. We are excited to share our knowledge of this subject with our industry peers.”
