SortSite Desktop One click website testing
SortSite is a one-click web site testing tool used by federal agencies, Fortune 100 corporations and independent consultancies. The tool is available as a desktop application for Mac or Windows, and is also available as a web application.
- Platforms: Mac OS X and Windows
- Use: inside and outside firewall, including intranets and development sites
One click is all it takes to analyze an entire web site. Each page is checked against more than 700 standards based checkpoints.
- Accessibility - check WCAG and Section 508 guidelines against many file types: find flashing GIFs, untagged PDFs
- Broken Links - check for broken links and spelling errors
- Compatibility - check for HTML, script and image formats that don't work in common browsers
- Search Engine Optimization - check Google and Bing webmaster guidelines
- Privacy - check for compliance with EU and US law
- Web Standards - validate HTML and CSS
- Usability - check against Usability.gov guidelines
Problems like broken links, spelling errors and usability problems drive visitors away from your site. Search engine issues stop visitors before they arrive. Find and fix website problems before your customers or executives find them.
Manual testing effort is proportional to the number of pages, so costs quickly add up, even on small sites:
- At least 30 minutes to comprehensively test each page manually
- Total Effort: 500 hours to fully test a 1,000 page site
- Total Cost: $25,000 at $50 per hour
SortSite tests the same site in under 5 minutes for a small fraction of the cost of testing everything manually. This lets teams focus manual testing on areas that require human judgement.
