About Deque Systems, Inc.
Digital equality. It's our mission, our vision, and our passion.
We take our leadership role seriously – our audits, our software tools, and our commitment to helping advance digital accessibility.
We have helped thousands of companies from technology leaders like Google and Microsoft, to many large US banks and insurance companies, retailers, airlines, hotel chains, and the biggest government agencies. We are humbled by their trust and praise.
Let us help your development teams make your website and mobile apps accessible. We can help them get it right the first time, even if they have never done it before. And when you are ready, your development teams can use our products and take Deque University Courses so they can build and maintain accessible websites and mobile apps on their own.
Let’s broaden your customer base and make practicing accessibility easy at the same time.”
