Designing intuitive and effective user interfaces is both science and art. It involves implementing user- centered requirements into usable designs, integrating the focal points of visual design, and also being aware of how website and application design strategies differ and overlap. BCG excels at helping you design a system that solves the problems at hand to successfully meet business objectives.

Web accessibility:

Web accessibility is the inclusive practice of ensuring there are no barriers that prevent interaction with (or access to) websites by people with physical disabilities, situational disabilities, and socio-economic restrictions on bandwidth and speed. Web accessibility depends on several components working together, including web technologies, web browsers, and other “user agents,” authoring tools, and websites.
Bridgewater makes this process efficient and effective by incorporating accessibility from the start of projects, so you don’t need to go back and re-do work. Our accessibility staff and consultants are people who use a wide range of technologies and best-practice methodologies to meet web accessibility requirements. Our team is proficient with WCAG, Section 508.

User Test Bank:

Bridgewater Consulting Group provides test banks to support our Application Design Consulting service. We design our test banks to include end-users that will use our solutions. We also offer test banks made up of individuals with disabilities. Our testing aligns with WCAG 2.0 and WCAG 2.1 standards. Typical scenarios include Low Vision Users, Users with Mobility Impairments, Users with Cognitive Impairments, and Seniors.

Accessibility Audits:

If your organization’s site and applications need to comply with specific accessibility requirements, this is the place to start. Our experts will conduct a full assessment of your content and walk your team through a detailed issue report to determine what your next steps should be. Bridgewater bases our assessments on guidelines and standards that are outlined by WCAG and Section 508 of the US Access Board.
