How well does the website provide for the accessibility needs of users?

The concept focuses on enabling the users to have the features being accessed with the help if easy design and operating design of the users (Henry, Abou-Zahra and Brewer, 2014). The website of the PwC starts with the word explore which attracts the customers and builds the thought process in the mind and allows the client to not only access the services provided on the website but also to get a knowledge of the industries availing the facilities to have a cross comparison. Moreover the company’s website is also attractive due to the bold red colour with a combination of the white.

In case of the Deloitte company’s website the accessibility needs of the users are satisfied with the full transparency and the website is designed more in the modern way as compared to the website of the PwC. The best feature of the website of the Deloitte is its individual tabs which play a major role in helping the client’s reach at the right platform without wasting much time (Aizpurua, Harper and Vigo, 2016). The accessibility statement is also issued on the portal which is missing on the PwC website.

In term of the information and its disclosure on the website and the portal, Deloitte is also well designed and all the latest information and the reports are available. Besides that the feedback option is a plus point in case of the Deloitte which enables the users to prove the instant feedback to the company to resolve their query (Ismailova, 2017).

5

How easy is it to find any information on the website about the organisation, their products or services?

How quickly does the website load into your browser and do all website features, links and embedded objects (eg: media files or applets) work as intended

The website loads faster and takes almost 3 seconds to load the entire format (Yu, and Young, 2017).

How well does the website support different web-browsers or platforms (e.g. mobile devices)

The PWC website becomes a bit cumbersome to us eon the phone as there are some features which do not fit in the screen of the phone

The website supports the different platforms equally as it supports the laptop or the desktops (Hang,et al 2017).

Does the website provide a sufficient range of payment options as could be reasonably expected?

To fuse an engaged approach in examination, PwC have constrained their inclusion of organizations to five noteworthy business fragments in the eCommerce and Internet segment—Over-the-Top (OTT), Online Advertising, eTail and Marketplace, Digital Payments and Cloud. Cross border payment are also accepted in lieu of the RBI guidelines  (PwC payments, 2018).

The new payment options are given to the users of the Deloitte to make the payments by credit debit cards and also enables the users to gain 1Qantas point for every $1 spent on the Deloitte private for availing the services (Deloitte, 2018).

4

5

Does the website provide a sufficient range of delivery options as could be reasonably expected?

The delivery options are high in case of this website and are easily available. The delivery options are also configured on the basis of the sectors in which the services are delivered (Pwc, 2018).

Under this website the delivery option to the industries are also segregated but to a lower level in comparison to the PwC.

The website of the Deloitte is more likely to be successful as it is simple and easy to access in comparison to the PwC because of the two major features which are both in alignment of the customer satisfaction. Customer satisfaction is the key for the professional service providers as they are also the customers of the customers. The services are the main source of revenue. The two distinct features are the language and the payment method for the services opted by the clients. Moreover the Deloitte is the number one firm in the world in terms of the revenue and the other accessibility features when compared to the PwC. The clients of the Deloitte have an easy access to the portal in their home language and the tabs are segregates to reach the right platform in the easiest manner possible which can also save the time. The Deloitte if improves the timing factor on the search engine to operate the website can change the entire scenario and becoming the world’s most demanding site which is catering the financial and the advisory services’ needs of the clients across the world (Sheleheda, 2015).
