Two decades ago, on July 4, 1990, I traveled on a plane from Mumbai to Kansas City, in the heart of the U.S. Midwest, to take my first job in information technology. Many of you will remember the early nineties as the hay days of technology. We thought everything was possible – we worked long hours and we dreamed in code.

In many ways, we can now say that we realized our dreams and lived our passion in making life easy with the use of rapid growth of technology. Technology written by programmers of decades past and enhanced by programmers today, fuels the global economy. Nearly everything we do is somehow connected to the infrastructures established two decades ago and relished massive improvement over the technology blocks of yester years. Today’s programmers and IT professionals, continue to expand upon those original dreams.

But the growth spurts of the 1990s did more than just spread the potency of technology into every business sector. They also changed the face of how and where people work. When the first Indian programmers, in 1965, traveled from Mumbai, Delhi and Calcutta to New York, California and, yes, even Kansas, it was a major event in their lives and the lives of their families. To some extent, it was the same kind of experience for the immigrant professionals in the 1990s.

Most of us were still used to staying in the area where we grew up, in maintaining residency in our native lands. The ones that left were cowboys. We were explorers in new lands. Well, more specifically, one land. In those days, the U.S. beckoned; this was where all opportunities lay. Although today’s world is flat, making connectivity accessible and faster with the advent in technology giving rise to the glorious concept of ‘virtual teams’ across globe. We still cannot replace the aura of personally commuting to different geographies and shaking hands, be it business, tourism, education or healthcare.

The INSZoom Immigration Conference 2012, conducted on November 6, 2012 at Bangalore, India, by INSZoom was a grand success. It definitely lived up to the expectation of being the largest and most influential immigration conference in India. The most imminent companies, law firms and headhonchos made an appearance in the conference with a packed house of immigration and IT professionals.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the amazing audience who actively involved and participated in the conference.

As a recap, we present to you some great shots from the event on our Flickr account. Check them out below.

According to recent LinkedIn data, CEO of INSZoom was in the top 1 percent of most viewed profiles on the business social media site.

Umesh Vaidyamath, INSZoom’s founder & CEO was lauded by the leading connectivity organization for their popularity among business browsers. LinkedIn now has 200 million members worldwide.

The U.S Custom and Border Protection (CBP) on March 27, 2013 published an interim final rule to automate the form I-94 (Arrival and Departure record). Currently, aliens entering the United States are required to fill the form I-94 at the time of entry into the US and show subsequently to prove their legal presence in the US.

The proposed rule that is slated to tentatively go into effect in the last week of April, will allow for the information entered by or on behalf of the traveller on the Advance Passenger Information System (APIS) at the time of checking in. The information collected by the APIS has the information required on a form I-94.

With the implementation of the rule, the CBP will create electronic I-94 records for aliens entering the United States by air or sea (with some exceptions) that travellers will be able to print off the net on a website expected to be active by April 20, 2013.

This change does bring in a completely new dimension to the way things have traditionally operated. Recognizing this the CBP has clarified that a print out from the website of the travellers arrival and departure record will be an acceptable document amongst others to:

  • Prove legal presence in the US
  • Apply for a Social Security Number (SSN)
  • Complete the Employment Eligibility Verification (I-9) process
  • Apply for a Driver’s License and other Immigration benefits
  • Create Rental Agreements (should it be required)
  • Securing School Admissions
  • Presenting to a University to verify Eligibility for Enrollment.

The benefits of this change are manifold. Right from the huge amount of money saved, reduction in paperwork involved, time spent, and ease of verification of an alien’s legal status in the US. The digitization of the I-94 form should make life easier for officials as well as aliens.

However, as is with every new process, till such time the new process stabilizes it is recommended that aliens keep a copy of the printout with them so that they can prove their legal status to concerned officials as and when required.

We are pleased to announce that INSZoom is featured as the “Company of the Month” in April Edition of SiliconIndia Magazine.

Here are the excerpts from the article –

Over a decade ago, INSZoom.com, Inc., introduced the first version of its immigration case management technology. In this early era of technology services, INSZoom’s cloud-based technology solutions were innovative and helped define the ways in which immigration professionals managed cases. As the federal government began to embrace technology, INSZoom grew, providing more and more varied services to their legal and corporate customers, enabling direct connections between immigration professionals, their clients, consultants, governments throughout the world and more. Through INSZoom’s portal-based systems, everyone involved in immigration’s book of business found a place to collaborate and cooperate, to complete essential case management tasks and components and to ensure compliance across the full spectrum of the immigration lifecycle.

INSZoom in 2013, just as it was in 1999, remains dedicated to pushing the envelope of technology and making products and providing services that help immigration professionals more effectively manage their business. The company is committed to ensuring it stays the preferred technology partner of immigration professionals worldwide.

A Commitment to Innovation

The Company’s consistent growth since its inception in 1999 is directly related to its continued commitment to innovation and to pushing the ways that immigration professionals access and use technology further. “Our success comes not from just offering our clients solutions that work for them today, but by creating the tools to help them tomorrow and the day after,” said Umesh Vaidyamath, founder and CEO of INSZoom. “Our technology leaders look at the way our clients work and we invent solutions to help them more effectively practice their business.”

The assault in black communities through lethal racism must end now. Each person has a responsibility to speak out against it, and most importantly, to act on it. We here at INSZoom stand in solidarity with George Floyd’s family, the many victims of racist brutality, and those using their voices and platforms to challenge it.

This grief is not new; it is simply being filmed. These violent acts of hatred are the result of long-standing and systemic racism. There is no quick solution to the complex problems we as citizens in the world face; however, INSZoom is working against these challenges and affect change. This duty belongs to all of us.

Let us send love and strength to the families of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless others.

Our vision as Zoomers is to provide borderless opportunities across the world, and we are committed to using our platform to address these critical and painful issues of race, justice, and issues globally. We will continue to use our voices to encourage meaningful dialogue, identify solutions, and galvanize communities towards the change needed.

Many organizations are on the front line to fight for justice. To take immediate action, citizens can contribute to their efforts to secure the safety and freedom of Black Lives.

For a list of organizations to contribute to supporting the ground efforts and petitions to sign in for legal action, please visit these following links.

INSZoom is equally committed to making our voices heard in the voting booth. Voting is not only a tool for freedom but remains an essential one. Our futures are on the ballot.

Going forward, let us reflect on the past, act in the present, and hope for the future because lives do depend on it.
