TUCSON, AZ--(Marketwired - Aug 27, 2013) - AudioEye, Inc. (
"On an international basis, government offices are adopting mobile and Internet technology at a rapid pace," stated Michael Axelrod, President of Grant Park Global and a member of AudioEye's Advisory Board. "These government publishers can benefit greatly by enhancing the utility, accessibility and compliance of their websites and other online interactions with the populations they serve. Grant Park has already begun to consult with public sector Internet publishers within the 50 U.S. States and government agencies in Puerto Rico and Latin America to advocate the adoption of AudioEye as their comprehensive mobile and Internet content accessibility solution. The initial response has been encouraging and indicates that AudioEye is a highly effective solution that addresses the demand for comprehensive Internet and mobile initiatives accessible to all constituents, including those with vision and hearing disabilities."
With years of international government, business, and political affairs experience, Michael Axelrod has worked with clients around the world. He founded Grant Park Global in 2009 to provide expertise in high-level strategic positioning, development of corporate growth strategies, and political consulting. Axelrod relies on one of the highest-level networks in the world to leverage significant benefits for Grant Park's clients and their interests. Ranging from Fortune 50 companies to startups and non-profits, clients gain top business and personnel access opportunities in both the private and public sectors. Grant Park Global has significant experience working in Latin America.
"Grant Park Global is a knowledgeable and trusted partner that can help our sales organization gain access to key decision makers in state and international government agencies which need to communicate with their constituencies more efficiently," noted Nathaniel Bradley, Chief Executive Officer of AudioEye, Inc. "Given our initiatives in Latin America, we are pleased to note that Grant Park has developed a strong presence and network of contacts that can bolster our sales and marketing efforts in that region of the world."
On October 8, 2010, President Obama signed into law the Twenty-First Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act (CVAA). The CVAA updates federal communications law to increase the access of persons with disabilities to modern communications. The CVAA updated accessibility laws enacted in the 1980s and 1990s to include access to 21st century technologies, such as digital, broadband, and mobile communications. State governments throughout the U.S. are now assessing their options for compliance with the federal mandate. AudioEye's Audio Internet platform provides software as a service ("SaaS") solutions that address Internet and mobile accessibility issues for online content publishers. Vision-imparied users can access and utilize the entire functionality of Internet websites without the use of a monitor or a mouse, while those with hearing disabilities can benefit from AudioEye's closed-captioning capabilities.
