Transform Your Global Immigration Process

‘457 visa change puts focus on skills’

‘Canada Streamlines Work Permit Process for Talented Skilled Foreign Workers’

‘Why the UK still needs new EU immigrants after Brexit’

What’s common in these news headlines? It’s immigration across the globe! Migrants and foreign workers have contributed 9.4% of the global GDP amounting to a total of $6.7 trillion globally making the case that immigration helps every country retain the best global talent.

However, business travel has been an issue because the amount of immigration and compliance information to keep ahead of and up-to-date is overwhelming for even the largest companies. Never-ending paperwork, decreased visibility into the expat’s immigration and compliance activities, increased number of phone calls on the status of the visa application process and meeting the work permit requirements are few of the worries that add to the global immigration process.

This cumbersome and time-consuming process can be transformed by leveraging technology that covers your organization on both the immigration and compliance fronts. That’s exactly where INSZoom’s Global Process Module has you covered with the following features:

  • Manage immigration cases for over 30 countries: The Global Process Module captures key data collection fields per case or visa type of over 30 countries which enable business immigration for enterprises and corporations.
  • Beyond visas: Compliance plays an integral role in business immigration. INSZoom’s Global Process Module does not merely consist visa details capturing capacities, it goes beyond by also capturing pre-travel and post-travel key compliance details.
  • Track expiration dates of visas and work permits: Immigration and compliance rules for every country are different and INSZoom takes care of that. Tracking expiration dates of documents with a consolidated view is exactly what INSZoom Global Process Module offers.
  • Reports, reports and reports: Need to run a report for all your organization’s expats’ visa validity dates? No problem, Global Process Module gives you the ability to run application defined reports at your fingertips!
The capacities of INSZoom Process Modules don’t end here! The module will be accompanied with additional features that are scheduled for progressive phase launches. Business immigration and compliance is a hot-button issue today and INSZoom Global Process Modules are built to comply with every need of an expat from initialization to repatriation.

Creative Enterprise Solutions

Creativity-and-Technology
Inherently, I am a creative person.  So much so that I spend much of my free time engaged in creative projects such as painting and decorating.  Simply put, being creative makes me happy to the core. photo-7I am very fortunate to be able to express my creativity in my work as well.  Of course, I don’t decorate our customer’s offices or offer any works of art (although I might if asked), but I do get the chance to provide meaningful and scalable solutions that make a difference to their organization.  It is incredibly rewarding.     Enterprise Software is defined as purpose-designed computer software used to satisfy the needs of an organization.  In this definition, two points stand out to me – “purpose-designed” and “satisfy the needs of an organization.”  Without a doubt, the INSZoom application is purpose-designed and we do not believe in cookie-cutter packaged solutions.  Instead, we focus on creating highly customized and targeted solutions unique to our customers. What is critical, is ensuring the tool not only satisfies the needs of the organization but exceeds its needs, by providing a scalable tool that will continue to grow with the organization.  
HR professionals need access to forms from various countries to be able to hire non-U.S. citizens.

Solutions that make you smile!

            Designing creative enterprise solutions begins by defining the problem. In any pre-sales discussion, new implementation, or when providing solutions to existing customers, I embark on a fact-finding mission. I start with gaining a deeper understanding of why the customer is interested in, or purchased, our software in the first place.  During this analysis phase, I throw on my Sherlock Holmes hat and start asking questions. I want to know the primary “purpose” of implementing our software in their organization.  What are they trying to achieve? What are their current challenges? What is missing? This exploratory process is conducted with one primary objective in mind – generate solutions that are unique to the specific needs of the organization. Creativity-and-Technology Technology isn’t just black and white lines of code.  Enterprise solutions can be compared to paintings in that no two implementations are exactly alike.  Each one has unique attributes and this is where creativity is critical.  Providing solutions to some of the world’s most respected law firms and corporations is inspiring and exciting.  Our customers have brilliant minds and I am always thrilled when I hear that our product and solutions have helped their organization increase efficiency, reduce redundancy, and improve their overall bottom-line. A successful solution is always the winning work of art.  By: Amber Easton

Globalize Your Firm

Globalization-300x209
By Umesh Vaidyamath In the old days, it was only the big companies that were global. In recent years, mid-size companies began to go global. Now it is common for even start-ups of a handful of people to be spread across the globe. This development was un-thought of only a few short years ago. Globalization is of two kinds: globalization of markets and globalization of the workforce; globalization of sales and globalization of labor; globalization of output and globalization of input. Markets of companies are being globalized and so are their workforce. Just as every country has import and export regulations governing movement of goods across their borders, so also they have regulations governing movement of people across their borders for conducting business and working. A business with a Serbian programmer needs to know what documentation and visas he will need to visit US, India or Japan on business. It is not as simple as simply getting a tourist visa—many countries have elaborate processes governing work done by foreigners within their borders. Being able to conduct business while complying with these regulations is critical for a global company. For a company or a law firm it is nearly impossible to keep track of the immigration and emigration laws and procedures in over a hundred countries. This task is made even harder by the fact that laws and forms keep changing every day. The solution is to use software to remain on top of immigration matters in countries of interest. INSZoom provides this capability to law firms and to companies. Relying on INSZoom to help with global mobility issues allows law firms and companies to operate globally. To learn more about how INSZoom can assist you, call us at 1-925-244-0600 or write to us at sales@inszoom.com.
