Riedel Crystal, an international company, turned to BoIA to make its website accessible for all
When Johann Leopold Riedel (1726-1800) laid down the foundation for the Riedel Glass Company a few hundred years ago, obviously he could never have imagined anything like the Internet and the challenges those with disabilities would face by being prevented from gaining full access to global websites.
Challenge and solution
Riedel Crystal wanted to be proactive in making sure its website was in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) as well as being accessible to all in the global economy. The firm knew it needed to achieve compliance not only for the sake of being able to fulfill online customer orders from around the world, but to mitigate legal risks and to avoid potential lawsuits that could result in costly legal fees.
