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.
