"Deque has gained the trust of many government agencies in supporting their goals of web compliance and increasing their President's Management Agenda scores, thus enabling agencies to deliver a more citizen-centric eGovernment," said Preety Kumar, president and CEO of Deque Systems, Inc. "By establishing methods to inventory, measure, audit and report on the OMB guidelines, government agencies can quickly progress toward achieving compliance."
