CR Software Awarded Section 508 Certification

Fairfax, VA, USA - 5 May 2011

CR Software, the world’s leading collections and receivables management software supplier, today announced its collections and receivables management processes have been certified as Section 508 Compliant by the Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board (“Access Board”). This is in accordance with the U.S. Rehabilitation Act which was amended by Congress in 1998, requiring federal agencies to make electronic and information technology accessible to people with disabilities.

CR Software is now fully compliant with Section 508, satisfying the provisions for the visually impaired. These conditions include the requirement of alternative keyboard navigation, essential for people with vision impairments who cannot rely on viewing screens or pointing devices.

“Section 508 increases the availability of accessible technologies, providing the estimated 49 million people with disabilities in the United States with better employment opportunities in the IT sector that fit their talent, skills and interests,” said Ed Wallen, CR Software CIO. “We’re pleased to make our technologies accessible to a much larger percentage of the population.”
