PITTSBURGH (PRWEB) November 13, 2017

ADA compliancy ensures RediSite is accessible for all; calendaring app flexibility increases ease of use and improves school-to-home communication.
Hampden, MA (PRWEB) November 14, 2017
Rediker Software recently announced that its affordable, easy-to-edit responsive website, RediSite, is now ADA compliant, making it possible for any person with a disability to access information on any device. With the addition of a standalone calendar app and myriad advanced features, RediSite now stands out as a premier website design and hosting solution for PK-12 schools.
ADA compliance ensures that a school’s website is accessible and usable by all people with disabilities, and guarantees them the same opportunities as anyone else. For instance, assistive technologies like screen readers help the visually impaired navigate the school website, and site structure makes it easy for individuals with color-blindness to access information.
WCAG 2.0 standards include a checklist of conditions, among them the requirement that a website meet both content and markup areas. Content includes everything that site editors publish, such as color, text, images, videos, menus, forms and sounds. Markup is the site’s underlying code that is included in RediSite responsive themes and CMS tools.
At Rediker Software, the RediSite support team is also trained and ready to advise customers on best-practices for publishing content that meets ADA compliance and fulfills Section 504 of the rehabilitation act.
“With RediSite’s growing popularity, we continue to work hard to provide some of the best value in quality school websites,” Rediker President Andrew Anderlonis said. “With RediSite now being fully ADA compliant, it allows for schools to not only meet requirements but more easily share school information with its community.”
The new, full-featured RediSite Calendar App can be used to display third-party iCal feeds, including Rediker’s PlusPortals, the Google Calendar and Microsoft Outlook. The app can also be used as a standalone calendar by adding events directly to your website in the Events Manager Dashboard. Event pages can be created in the CMS (content management system) and content blocks can be used to add images, slideshows and sponsors.
Calendar management is flexible so that the user can have one or multiple calendars for each feed, and they can be sorted by categories, or multiple feeds can be merged into one calendar. Calendar events can also link to individual landing pages with more information like the when and where details, images, sponsor lists, and forms.
The added Calendar App and ADA compliancy are just two of the latest feature enhancements Rediker Software has added to RediSite. Additional front and back-end features include:
“The latest version of RediSite is even easier to use then before,” Anderlonis concluded, “with a new, fully responsive CMS enabling anyone to update their school website from any device, anywhere.”

For more than 35 years, Rediker Software has been a leader in school administrative software for private, public, international, religious and independent schools. Through its innovative solutions, Rediker Software helps schools in over 120 countries manage administrative tasks, maximize school-to-home communication and inspire student performance and success.

Apple is clear leader in supporting a conflict-free minerals trade; Walmart, Sears and Neiman Marcus are ranked worst; Rankings show steady advances on conflict-free sourcing from Congo, but urgent need for more action to ensure products aren’t linked to mass atrocities and human rights abuses
WASHINGTON (PRWEB) November 16, 2017
Apple, Alphabet (Google), HP, Microsoft, and Intel are leading the way, while Walmart, Sears, and Neiman Marcus are ranked worst, in the Enough Project’s 2017 Conflict Minerals Company Rankings, published today. The new rankings report examines 20 of the world’s largest consumer electronics and jewelry retail companies on their efforts to support a conflict-free minerals trade and ensure their products aren’t linked to a range of abuses in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Apple emerged as the clear leader with its consistent fulfillment of the rankings criteria indicating that the company has committed substantial resources to developing processes for sourcing minerals from mines that benefit Congolese communities. Alphabet, Google’s parent company, ranks second overall and HP, Microsoft, and Intel round out the top five companies. Signet Jewelers and Tiffany & Co. lead the pack in the jewelry retail industry with other companies from this industry lagging far behind.
Overall, 11 companies, including some of the world’s most recognized brands like Neiman Marcus, Sears, and Walmart were ranked in the red, indicating they were making little effort to combat the trade in conflict minerals from Congo. The rankings also clearly indicate that the consumer electronics industry as a whole is more advanced than the jewelry retail sector in corporate efforts to improve supply chain transparency and opportunities for conflict-free sourcing from Congo.
The 2017 rankings build on Enough’s 2010 and 2012 consumer electronics rankings and 2014 jewelry leaders review. The results this year highlight the steady advances that have been made since Enough conducted its first company rankings seven years ago and reveal some corporate trailblazers that are supporting a conflict-free minerals trade in eastern Congo. Many of the ranked companies have consistently improved the quality of their due diligence programs, including developing and implementing more sophisticated risk management processes and moving beyond annual reporting. Top-scoring companies are also enhancing their efforts with regard to sourcing conflict-free minerals from Congo and progress in Congo’s mining areas demonstrates tangible impact to which company efforts contribute. As of April 2017, 420 mines in Congo had been verified as conflict-free. In 2010, at the time of Enough’s first rankings, no mines had received this designation.
The rankings also expose the considerable need for more action – especially with regard to increasing the opportunities for conflict-free gold sourcing from Congo, and better supporting safe, legal, viable livelihoods in Congolese mining communities – spotlighting companies who do little to ensure they are not contributing to the devastating consequences of the conflict minerals trade.
Annie Callaway, report author and Advocacy Manager at the Enough Project, said: “Consumers deserve to know whether the products they purchase are linked to conflict financing, mass atrocities, and grave human rights abuses in Congo. The results of the Enough Project’s 2017 company rankings indicate that some companies are beginning to more thoroughly understand and embrace due diligence and responsible sourcing practices, but all companies that use these minerals should commit additional resources in support of a truly conflict-free minerals trade. That means actively contributing to collaborative multistakeholder and livelihoods initiatives in order to build long-lasting systems that benefit the Congolese people, consumers, investors, and corporate supply chains alike.”
The report highlights that, as a result of the unique leverage they have over their supply chains, multinational companies that profit from Congo’s minerals can help address the links between conflict and mining.
John Prendergast, Founding Director at the Enough Project: “Since the Enough Project’s first company rankings in 2010, many companies have bought in to the idea that conflict-free minerals sourcing from Congo is possible. Thanks to consumer activism, especially from students and conscientious university procurement departments, companies now know that if they do nothing about this issue they risk losing customers. This new rankings report will hopefully generate additional momentum from the leading companies and put increased pressure on the laggards so that global supply chains no longer contribute to Congo’s ongoing crisis.”
Holly Dranginis, Senior Policy Analyst at the Enough Project, said: “Amidst growing political turmoil in Congo, multinational companies that rely on these minerals have a role to play in promoting rule of law and security there. It’s critically urgent now to shine even brighter light on supply chains originating in Congo. Consumers, investors, and companies can all help ensure that there are costs imposed for the violent or corrupt exploitation of minerals, and contribute to growing opportunities for safe, sustainable livelihoods in Congo’s mining sectors.”
