LKCS Expands Digital Services Department to Meet Their Client’s Growing Web Development Needs(February 12, 2018)
PERU, Ill. (PRWEB) February 12, 2018
Banks and credit unions have recognized the critical importance of their web sites. They continue to adopt the latest techniques to remain competitive in an ever-changing technological landscape. LKCS has seen a huge growth in both their website development and the use of their knowledge, tools, and experience to assist these clients. In addition, LKCS' services have been in great demand to bring financial institutions' web sites into alignment with the practical standards of web accessibility to better serve people with disabilities.
“We are proud to announce the latest addition to our digital services team, Chris Guadiana, as a Visual Communications Designer. Chris brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to our team," says Karl Ribas, Director of Digital Services at LKCS. “We plan to build on this experience. We are growing as a company and continue to expand our list of design and digital marketing services. Hiring a designer with Chris' talents will allow us to better meet the ongoing needs of our customers."
Guadiana's background includes over 10 years of digital services experience. “I am excited to be working at LKCS," says Guadiana. “LKCS is a great company with great people. I look forward to expanding my skill set working alongside a talented team."
LKCS is helping financial institutions, across the nation bring their websites in line with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG) developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). Financial Institutions of all sizes continue to be the target of lawsuits challenging their websites' compliance with the Americans with Disability Act (ADA).
“The WCAG web accessibility guidelines were developed with the best of intentions. It is unfortunate that unscrupulous law firms are seeking to benefit financially through threat tactics. To avoid the high cost of a legal settlement, banks and credit unions must demonstrate that they are taking steps to make their web sites accessible to people with a wide range of disabilities and have procedures in place to maintain that accessibility as their web sites change and evolve over time. As financial institutions receive threat letters, they are requesting quicker turnaround times for our services to fend off having to settle their lawsuit. This has placed a growing demand on our digital services department to meet our client's needs and timelines," explains Sid Haas, LKCS Vice President of Business Development.
