By Mark Steele, Spiro Papathanasakis, and Simon Dermer, Co-founders of eSSENTIAL Accessibility
Since announcing the completion of the merger between eSSENTIAL Accessibility and Level Access, for the past several weeks we have been working together combining our teams, technologies, and processes in order to deliver even more innovative solutions and improved value to our customers.
Today, we’re very excited to announce the next step in this merger journey: the eSSENTIAL Accessibility name is retiring, and our new, consolidated company will be known as Level Access.
We came to this decision after a great deal of research, analysis, and introspection. We interviewed customers and non-customers, conducted market research, and analyzed the best foundation from which to communicate our values in the market. Level Access provides this solid foundation. And while we can’t help but feel nostalgia and gratitude as we retire the eSSENTIAL Accessibility name, our innovative approach and proud Canadian heritage will shine through as we bring the storied and valued Level Access legacy forward as a global solution provider. Our Canadian operations and team will continue their excellent work under the new name. In fact, we are looking forward to continued expansion and growth in the Canadian market—both in business and employee count.
To our existing customers and partners, thank you for trusting us on your journey to make the digital world more accessible. This is just another step on that journey to work with you to deliver great digital accessibility results for your organization. This name change does not impact our current product offerings, your existing contracts, or change the great customer service you’ve come to expect. We will only continue to build upon and extend the capabilities of the eSSENTIAL Accessibility Platform, coupled with the strength of Level Access’ expert services and solution.
In the coming days and weeks, we’ll be communicating this name change and preparing to update our merged company’s website, which will reflect our unified identity under the Level Access name. We expect this process to be complete in early 2023.
Once again, thank you for your support through our years as eSSENTIAL Accessibility. We are eager to continue to bring together the best of both brands to transform digital accessibility as the next iteration of Level Access.
