Monsido is a complete web governance SaaS solution. It provides a premiere accessibility scanning tool that has a keen ability to locate and provide detailed information to fix issues. Monsido also includes an enhanced quality assurance tool to deal with broken links, misspellings, SEO issues and statistical analysis.

CommonLook, which has been laser-focused on PDF and document accessibility, is also cognizant of the fact that many customers require a one-stop-shop for digital content compliance.

CommonLook is the only PDF scanning tool, aside from Adobe, that has been recognized by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3), an international community that works to develop standards online.

Monsido customers will be able to upgrade their accounts to include the PDF scanning tool. The scanning results will be imported directly into the customer’s account and available through the dashboard. PDF tracking will allow users to see which files have been remediated and those that have not.

“We are excited to add this new tool to our solution. By offering one of the most robust PDF scanners on the market, we ensure our customers’ continued success with digital accessibility.”
