Objectives

Unmediated information

The initiative has people’s varying needs at its heart. The accessibility information is not assessed. Each individual should decide for themselves whether a particular tourism offering is suitable for the trip they are planning.

Additional benefit for tourism

OK:GO offers Swiss tourism businesses an effective and cost-efficient solution to help them appeal to visitors with specific requirements and gain new customers.

Inclusive communication

The accessibility information can be viewed by anyone via the standard communication channels and is identified by the OK:GO logo. The information is easy to find, inclusive, and attractively presented.

Integration of existing concepts

Accessibility information from existing initiatives relating to accessibility in the Swiss tourism sector is integrated into the OK:GO system. 

Implementation

To implement the scheme, OK:GO relies on input from individual businesses. Companies can gather, manage, and communicate the information themselves using a simple system based on technology provided by ginto, a platform operated by the association AccessibilityGuide.

 

 

If a business would like to participate in the initiative, the required information can be collected using the ginto business account. After that, the company adds the OK:GO logo to its website and links it to the accessibility information it has provided. The OK:GO logo on the website signals to visitors that they are welcome and that accessibility information is available.
