TUCSON, Ariz. – November 4, 2019—AudioEye, Inc. (NASDAQ: AEYE), a leading and trusted provider of digital accessibility solutions for individuals with disabilities, has announced a new partnership with BentoBox, a hospitality platform that empowers restaurants to own their presence, profits and relationships, directly through their website. This marks AudioEye’s first and only partnership specifically for restaurant websites.
BentoBox supports 5,000+ restaurants and their websites worldwide with a certified accessible platform. With this partnership, BentoBox customers will now have the option to include AudioEye Managed as part of their website. AudioEye’s comprehensive digital Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessibility solution delivers automated Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) compliance coupled with manual fixes made by a team of digital accessibility experts. Together with AudioEye, BentoBox will provide restaurants with tailor-made websites that have been certified to meet the most up-to-date accessibility guidelines.
“At BentoBox, accessibility is at the forefront of our platform, and we are proud to expand our offerings with AudioEye,” said BentoBox COO, Brian Cotlove. “Unlike competitors, AudioEye Managed provides a robust accessibility solution with 24/7 website monitoring, manual and automatic fixes, and website certification.
