Accessibility in Visma

Create better, futureproof products and reduce risk

Creating accessible products not only benefits users with disabilities but gives a competitive edge, and reduces financial and regulatory risks.

Visma must be known by peers, customers and clients as best-in-class of accessibility to attract talent, business and public tender contracts.

Dedicated to be inclusive

In Visma, the way we work and the products we deliver are rooted in our core values, one of which is to be inclusive. Being inclusive when it comes to our users means that no-one is excluded from using our products, e.g. by having a disability or impairment.

As one of the leading software companies in Europe, Visma is in prime position to be the change leader for accessibility friendly workplaces. Together, we can contribute to the important change and we can lead that change.

The product team

Below are typical product team roles and what they are usually responsible for, when it comes to accessibility. Not every product team has all these roles, and in those cases it is important to talk about the different tasks and who is responsible for what.
