Streamlined Immigration Case Management
Immigration and naturalization processes in the U.S. entail a cumbersome paper-based approach of collecting information, filling out the relevant forms, and submitting the completed forms to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) agency for processing. However, this manual system is often fraught with human errors and workflow inefficiencies, which lead to delays in completing immigration applications.
To address this setback and offer a simpler, more efficient, and error-free immigration case processing system, California-based ImmiCompliance.com was born. The legal tech solution provider offers a comprehensive case management software that automates the entire process by intuitively navigating through the different stages of consultation, appointment setting, case assignments, and forms generation—thereby streamlining the job of attorneys, petitioners and beneficiaries/applicants alike.
In an interview with CIO Applications, Dinesh Arsid, founder of ImmiCompliance.com, discusses the company’s inception, growth, and future in the field of legal technology solutions.
