Section 508 Compliance

Section 508 Compliance Statement

Section 508 Electronic Information and Technology Accessibility Standards Compliance Statement

Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, mandates that when the federal government purchases most electronic information and technology, including software, it must ensure that the electronic information and technology provides access to and use of, information or data to federal government employees with disabilities that is comparable to the access provided to federal government employees without disabilities. Additionally, under the act, the federal government is also obligated to provide access to information and data to members of the public with disabilities that is comparable to the access provided to the public without disabilities.

Hurd I/T understands the importance of technology accessibility to our customers. The regulations adopted by the federal government to implement Section 508 generally require all U.S. government agencies to purchase software solutions that are most compliant with Section 508 requirements. In addition, other customers, including state governments and international bodies, increasingly require compliance with accessibility standards when making procurement decisions. Beyond the legislative compliance, Hurd I/T recognizes that universal design and accessibility are good business strategies.

Hurd I/T is committed to providing accessible scheduling software products and documentation through the ongoing evolution of its product lines. Recognizing that accessible software also provides ease-of-use, we incorporate universal design into our product planning process. As we develop our scheduling software products, we test them with assistive technologies and with operating system accessibility extensions to assess their compliance with applicable Section 508 accessibility criteria established by the federal government. The extent of compliance with the Section 508 accessibility requirements currently varies by product. Upon request, Hurd I/T will provide information and demonstrate our compliance of the applicable Section 508 accessibility criteria to the customer.

As accessibility guidelines, standards and methodologies evolve, our customers can be assured that they will continue to have access to the most current product evolution made available by AgilQuest in our efforts to meet current and future accessibility requirements for disabled users.

At Hurd I/T, our mission is to provide organizations around the world with workplace management solutions that make the workplace as agile as the workforce.
