Technology Adapts to Minimize Impairments

By February 22, 2023No Comments

Often when organizations embrace new technology, the goal is to realize a new competitive advantage or improve the bottom line. However, some technology deployments serve a far more altruistic purpose. Consider, for instance, the new technology helping the visually impaired workers at North Central Sight Services (NCSS), a manufacturer that provides employment opportunities to the blind and visually impaired.

NCSS’s mission is to provide exceptional products, services and employment opportunities to the blind and visually impaired. The organization employs 29 visually impaired workings including its CEO, and it needed a flexible platform to accommodate worker needs. NCSS workers count, package and ship AbilityOne office supplies, flash drives, labels and CD/DVD packs as part of a program under the U.S. AbilityOne Commission.
