Enabling Kiwi Organisations to grow better businesses through accessibility.
Access customers are one of the largest untapped markets in the world. Today, 24% of the world's population lives with a disability of some kind. Add older people, families with young children and overseas visitors to this group and you are potentially excluding a huge proportion of your market. In New Zealand alone, the lost opportunity associated with better education, engagement and employment of Kiwis with disabilities, is estimated to be billions of dollars.
On top of this, consumer and employee needs and expectations are changing, driven by new technologies and worldwide trends around social and environmental values. Organisations positioning themselves for the future understand a workforce that reflects the diversity of an organisation's customer-base not only enables better business decisions, product design and service, but also builds brand equity.
