Inclusive and accessible to everyone.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates (June 20th, 2022). According to the World Health Organization, 650 million people globally experience some form of disability. Hloov, a pioneer in human-centric artificial intelligence for the built environment, announced today that it will append the Digital Accessibility measures on all its products and services by Fall 2023. Hloov's initiative comes from the UAE's commitment to inclusion and accessibility. The UAE has made great strides in recent years to become more inclusive, and this move by Hloov will bolster these efforts. The company plans to implement a comprehensive matrix of accessibility measures as per WCAG and relevant guidelines across its platforms.

The UN and World Bank estimate that about 25% of the population is directly or indirectly affected by disability.  This number is expected to grow to 1.3 billion by 2050 as the population ages. Disabilities can include physical, sensory, cognitive, and neurological impairments. With the rise of digital platforms, it is becoming increasingly difficult for people with disabilities to access essential services. Hloov's initiative will go a long way in ensuring that everyone has an equal opportunity to participate in the digital economy.

"The digital world can be a great leveler, but only if we make it accessible to everyone. As a company constantly innovating and pushing boundaries, we want to make sure that our products and services are inclusive and accessible to everyone, regardless of ability." - Suhail Arfath.

Hloov has already begun implementing its accessibility plan and is on track to meet its goal of full accessibility by Fall 2023. The company plans to implement a comprehensive matrix of accessibility measures as per WCAG guidelines across its products and services. Hloov's accessibility efforts are part of its more significant commitment to inclusion and diversity. The company has a diverse workforce and is committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees. This latest move is yet another example of how the company is working to empower people.
