NEW ORLEANS, LA - 365 Connect, a leading provider of award-winning digital marketing, leasing, and resident service platforms for the multifamily housing industry, announced today the company has received three Vega Digital Awards for its industry-first ADA-Certified platform. These prestigious, international awards recognize 365 Connect’s dedication to digital inclusion across the rental housing industry and beyond.
The Vega Digital Awards is an international competition, crafted to celebrate and honor leading professionals in the creative fields of digital media. From broadcast and print to social media and emerging platforms, winners were selected in a broad scope of categories. Administered by the International Awards Associate, the competitors are juried by a select panel of industry-leading creative giants, under comprehensive and strict standards. This year's competition boasted entries from over 50 countries including Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, China, Denmark, Germany, India, Malaysia, Oman, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Singapore, South Korea, Switzerland, Turkey, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, the United States, and many more.
The Vega Digital Awards recognized 365 Connect’s dedicated efforts in certifying its entire platform as digitally compliant with the federally recognized Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 Level AA. The certification covers the entire 365 Connect Platform, including property websites, lead forms, tour requests, rental applications, portals, and payments. 365 Connect received third-party certification from Online ADA, a member of the International Association of Accessibility Professionals and provider of independent WCAG compliance audits.
“It is a great joy to see these talented individuals receive accolades for the work they had put forth. Certainly, there is no end to innovation and talent in the minds of people,” said Kenjo Ong, the CEO of the International Awards Associate. “IAA is proud to be a waypoint for this diverse group of talents worldwide, as we find ourselves with a wider audience with each passing year. With the scrutiny imposed during the judging process, we can be assured that those, who emerge victorious, deserve it.”
365 Connect CEO, Kerry W. Kirby responded, “365 Connect is truly honored to receive this highly acclaimed award. Our focus is to make services accessible to everyone, including individuals with disabilities. As physical buildings become more digitally dependent on their websites to interact with prospective and existing customers, we must close the digital divide.” He added, “We are excited to have our efforts acknowledged on an international level, as this award emphasizes our team’s unwavering commitment to deliver compliant solutions to the widest possible audience online.”
