Team BlueDAG will be at the 2018 National ADA Symposium, which takes place June 17-20 a the Wyndham Grand Hotel in Pittsburgh, PA. This will be our third consecutive year as a sponsor of this event. The National ADA Symposium is the largest ADA-focused event in the United States, and as always we are excited for the opportunity to demonstrate BlueDAG’s ADA inspection, reporting and compliance tools to the attendees.
The National ADA Symposium is a project of the ADA National Network which is comprised of ten regional centers that provide information, training, and materials on the Americans with Disabilities Act. The conference, held annually for the past 20 years, has earned the reputation as the most comprehensive training event available on the ADA and disability related laws. The National ADA Symposium is designed to provide the latest information on ADA regulations and guidelines, implementation strategies, and best practices through dynamic, interactive sessions. The 2018 National ADA Symposium will be hosted by the Great Plains ADA Center.
Be sure to stop buy BlueDAG’s demonstration area at the symposium (booth #16), to see the latest BlueDAG features and developments. We look forward to meeting you there!

BlueDAG has released a new whitepaper: “ADA Compliance With The BlueDAG Title II Software Suite.” This 16-page document provides the reader with an executive overview of Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act, focusing on the Act’s ramifications for public agencies. It then explains and demonstrates the means by which BlueDAG’s Title II Suite enables subscribers to effectively manage the five administrative requirements of Title II of the ADA.
Filled with illustrations, software screenshots and case examples, this whitepaper provides the reader with solid introductory understanding of the methodology and architecture of BlueDAG’s Title II suite. ADA Title II Coordinators for U.S. cities, counties and states, as well as of specific departments of those agencies, will find this whitepaper to be an effective and informative introduction to BlueDAG’s software tools.
Please accept this whitepaper with our compliments. Those ADA Title II Coordinators who wish to delve deeper into the capabilities of BlueDAG’s Title II suite may contact us to schedule a phone consultation or live web demo to see BlueDAG in action.
Private-sector ADA Coordinators will find the section of the whitepaper which deals with Evaluations and Barrier findings to be relevant to their site inspection responsibilities, and they are encouraged to download the document and review those sections.
We are in the process of adding findings related to the 1997 IAC (Illinois Accessibility Code). The new findings are scheduled to be completed and made available on production platforms by the end of November, 2017.
A popular request amongst our users is the ability to upload additional documents to BlueDAG evaluation reports. Good news: this feature is currently in active development and is expected to be available on production platforms by the end of December, 2017. Users will be able to upload arbitrary PDF documents from the reporting screen, and those documents will be incorporated into the report. The placement and order of uploaded documents will be configurable by the user.
We are currently in the beta testing phase of our all new BlueDAG mobile application for iOS. This version 2 release represents a complete re-write of our mobile application from the ground up. The result is a faster and more intuitive interface that enables our clients to work faster and easier than ever, and introduces new features such as landscape mode, findings figures, automatic photo orientation, and navigation to site locations. Our new mobile app for iOS will be released on December 15th. Watch for the release bulletin and startup / training videos on our Youtube channel! Version 2 of our mobile app for Android will follow in early 2018.
At BlueDAG LLC we are continuously improving the functionality and flexibility of our ADA inspection, reporting and compliance solutions. Our subscribers have requested the addition of specific checklists to help ensure consistency and reduce data collection efforts in the field. We have responded.
In the last two months we have added several checklists for use with PROWAG if chosen as the Barrier Standard. These checklists include:
On- Street Parking is slated to be completed by the end of November.
Also recently added for the 2010 ADAS and other State Standards are:
If you would like to request a checklist be developed please contact us and let us know what you need.
