What are HirePotential’s Clients Saying?

Hire Potential provided us with expert ADA compliance auditing services for several of our college’s web-based systems. They identified and documented our compliance gaps, consulted us on how to best close those gaps, and provided us with tools to help us maintain compliance. Our success in resolving our compliance issues would not have been achieved as well and as quickly without their assistance. I highly recommend Hire Potential to other colleges and universities seeking help with identifying and resolving their ADA compliance issues. Jeff Kissinger,Senior Project Manager, Grand Rapids Community College
