The Widen Asset Digest Remodeling Plan

by Michael Orear, September 21, 2022


Like many of you, I’m a proud homeowner. And while I’m content with my cozy abode, over the years I’ve identified opportunities for improvement — everything from small painting projects to a large-scale kitchen renovation.

Our Path to Building Accessible Software for All Users

by Molly Hamm, August 15, 2022

 

Empathy is central to our values and culture. It’s reflected in our exceptional customer service, respect for our teammates, and commitment to building quality software. Our General Manager, Matthew Gonnering is so passionate about the importance of empathy in business that he made it the focus of his TEDx Talk.

So our interest in building technology that’s accessible to all users is a natural extension of our corporate culture and mindset around empathy and inclusion. We have infused this passion in our digital asset management (DAM) and product information management (PIM) platform at Widen and are carrying this foundation into our user experience (UX) work on all Acquia products, too.

Because this work is so pivotal to who we are, we’d like to share more about our effort to meet accessibility standards across all Widen and Acquia products.
