Why Grackle for Business?

SEO Benefits

Many accessibility practices overlap with search engine optimization (SEO) techniques. For instance, using descriptive alt text for images and providing transcripts for audio content not only make content accessible but also improve its search engine ranking.

Innovation and Creativity

Embracing accessibility challenges businesses to think innovatively and creatively about how they design and deliver digital products and services. This can lead to new ideas, features, and approaches that differentiate a company from its competitors.

Employee Satisfaction and Productivity

Accessible digital tools and resources not only benefit customers but also employees with disabilities. Providing accessible technology in the workplace fosters inclusivity, boosts morale, and enhances productivity among all employees.

Cost Savings in the Long Run

While implementing accessibility features may require upfront investment, it can lead to cost savings in the long run. Addressing accessibility issues early in the design and development process is often more cost-effective than retrofitting inaccessible features later.

Expanded Customer Base

By ensuring that digital content, products, and services are accessible to people with disabilities, businesses can tap into a larger customer base. Globally, there are over a billion people with disabilities, and making digital assets accessible can help businesses reach this significant demographic.

Legal Compliance

Many countries have laws and regulations that require digital accessibility, such as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) in the United States and the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) globally. Compliance with these regulations helps businesses avoid legal issues and potential lawsuits.

Enhanced Reputation and Brand Image

Demonstrating a commitment to accessibility can improve a company’s reputation and brand image. Customers appreciate businesses that prioritize inclusivity and are more likely to support and recommend them.

Improved User Experience (UX)

Designing with accessibility in mind often leads to better overall user experience for all users, not just those with disabilities. Clear navigation, descriptive alt text for images, and proper color contrast benefit everyone, resulting in higher user satisfaction and retention rates.

A small sample of what our happy customers have to say about GrackleDocs

  • Columbus State University

    Dear Grackle Team, we are so grateful for your reaching out to share the Grackle product suite. At Columbus State University, we frequently recommend GrackleDocs to faculty members preparing their course content for online courses.

    Its design makes addressing accessibility issues clear and straightforward. When an issue is found, the interface provides a link to its location and methods for addressing it. Then you simply do a recheck. It’s so easy to use! We are looking forward to trying it out with all Google products. Thanks again!

  • Region 10 ESC

    As an educational non-profit with limited budgets, we looked for an affordable solution to implement Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 for our G Suite output and meet requirements for OCR compliance.

    We didn’t find anything else that would work as well, nor as inexpensively, as Grackle Suite to help us remediate our Google Docs, Sheets and Slides. My students who I teach accessibility to (Region 10 staff) like it and think it’s easy to learn and use. I highly recommend Grackle.

  • Association of Guide Dogs in Lyon

    Our organization provides guide dogs free of charge to visually impaired people to help them navigate independently.

    But despite persistent efforts, we haven’t been able to teach our dogs to read. So, to produce documents that are accessible and easy to read for our beneficiaries, we associate a grackle with the dog.

    This is a very user-friendly solution in our Google Workspace environment. The return on investment is excellent and the combination of Google Docs and Grackle works wonderfully.

  • The Simple Web

    The Grackle Docs’ interface shows document accessibility errors and guides you through fixing them. The process is very easy allowing you to create an accessible PDF at the click of a button.
    After exporting over 250 accessible PDFs in a month with Grackle Docs, I am impressed and relieved to have such a fabulous add-on to Google Docs. The Grackle Docs’ staff respond to support requests promptly, thoroughly and politely.
