RedDot Solutions Partners with Fraunhofer Institute FIT

Nov 05, 2004


RedDot Solutions, a provider of enterprise content management (ECM) solutions, has announced a formal partnership with the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Information Technology FIT to offer and continue development of the enhanced RedDot Web Compliance Manager. Created by Fraunhofer Institute FIT and available from RedDot, the new software solution is designed to help organizations comply with legal requirements and international guidelines. The software is an add-on module to the RedDot product line and is intended to ensure Web sites, portals, and intranets are easily accessible for professionals and for persons with disabilities. As content is updated, the RedDot Web Compliance Manager reads Web sites and style sheets and flags any non-compliance issues. Validation is based on the regulatory and international accessibility standards, including Section 508 of the US Rehabilitation Act, WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines), and the German BITV (Barrier-Free Regulation for Information Technology). Custom rules can also be set up to enforce and ensure consistent use of corporate elements, such as corporate color selection, logo usage, and product terminology.
