ARLINGTON, Va., Jan. 28, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Bureau of Internet Accessibility (BoIA) has announced that it will now offer its clients a first-of-its-kind accessibility customer support line, where a live agent is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

When customers visit a website supported by BoIA, they now can be sure that if they have any issues using the site, a representative is waiting to take their call to help them.

“This innovation offers a glimpse into the real-time accessibility solutions that companies should be offering to their customers,” said BoIA President, Mark Shapiro. “It’s exciting to announce, not only because we’re driving this positive change; website visitors deserve to benefit equally from digital products and services on their time, and this service finally helps deliver on that goal.”

The dedicated toll-free number will be provided to clients for use on their website’s accessibility page. Clients will get notified of all calls and their results. BoIA will then review each issue to determine its root cause and whether a long-term resolution needs to be implemented to prevent it from happening again.

“What better way to show customers you value their time and business?” Shapiro added, “Every effort is made to help our clients offer their visitors full and independent use of their digital platforms. But, good intentions don’t necessarily mean people won’t ever run into an issue, so if they do they can call and reach a real person in real-time, committed to helping them do what they came to the site to do.”
