CONCORD, NH - August 23, 2001 - HiSoftware, Inc. announced today that its Web site accessibility products are now available to Department of Defense agencies through a Blanket Purchase Agreement with the Department of the Navy as part of the Department of Defense Enterprise Software Initiative. The Enterprise Software Initiative is a joint DOD project to develop and implement a DOD enterprise process to identify, acquire, distribute, and manage enterprise software. This Blanket Purchase Agreement was issued to DLT Solutions, a GSA schedule holder for HiSoftware's full product line. These solutions help organizations develop long-term strategies to achieve Web content accessibility, enhance usability, and comply with U.S. and international accessibility standards.

"We are pleased to offer our accessibility solutions to the Department of Defense through this special contract vehicle. Through a combination of our client and server software, DOD content providers will be well-equipped to achieve and maintain Web site accessibility," said Ted Chumas, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for HiSoftware.  

HiSoftware's Web site accessibility solutions allow multiple users to work collaboratively on Web site repair.
