Kasasa® Partners with AudioEye, Inc. to Provide Accessibility & Web Enhancement Technology Option to Community Financial Institutions

FinTech provider’s proactive approach positions CFIs for stronger
competitive advantage, drives deeper relationships with customers

AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Award-winning financial technology and marketing provider, Kasasa®,
formerly BancVue®, announced a strategic partnership with AudioEye,
Inc., a provider of technology designed to optimize the user experience
for individuals with disabilities.

The AudioEye Technology will allow FIRSTBranch clients to reach the
broadest audience possible, including the 5 to 10 percent of the
population with a disability or physical limitation otherwise denied
full access to websites and digital content. Through the partnership,
AudioEye’s patented and flexible technology will now be fully integrated
into Kasasa’s FIRSTBranch® websites for new community financial
institution (CFI) clients. Additionally, existing FIRSTBranch clients
will have the option to add the technology to their current websites,
providing a strong competitive advantage over megabanks, as well as an
opportunity to drive even deeper relationships with customers.

“Our mission is to help organizations of all kinds provide full access
and usability across their digital infrastructure,” said Sean Bradley,
Chief Technology Officer of AudioEye. “By partnering with Kasasa, we’re
now extending that accessibility to financial institutions. Not only is
integrating this technology into their clients’ websites the right thing
to do, but it’s also good for customers, which makes it great for
business. We look forward to this relationship.”

AudioEye provides publishers with a single solution that not only
presents end-users with a compliant and accessible version of their
digital assets, but also with a free assistive technology, ultimately
eliminating access barriers and providing tools for enhancing the
customer experience.

“Many industries outside of ours are already being held to new
accessibility requirements for websites and other digital content,” said
Gabe Krajicek, CEO of Kasasa. “We’re being proactive in this. Kasasa
believes it’s critical that banks and credit unions empower individuals
with disabilities to engage with their institution online, and we want
to make sure our CFI customers have the means to do so. We’re excited
about our partnership with AudioEye and believe it will be of huge value
to our clients and their account holders.”

Currently, Kasasa has a client base of 779 signed and launched CFIs
across all product offerings, representing more than 6,700 branches in
all 50 states as well as Guam and D.C. The corporation more than doubled
the number of new clients acquired in 2015 compared to 2014.
