Global Immigration Case Management Platform recognized for tackling complex workforce immigration processes

CHICAGO – SEPTEMBER 14, 2017 – The Chicago Innovation Awards have named Envoy, the technology leader in global immigration and workforce management, a Top 100 Finalist. Selected from 530 nominations, this recognition honors Envoy’s Global Immigration Case Management Platform, which helps employers streamline the complex work authorization process around the world. The Innovation Awards recognize and celebrate Chicago’s most innovative and groundbreaking advancements from organizations across all industries in the region.

“At Envoy, we’re dedicated to developing innovative solutions that help employers more easily hire and manage a global workforce. We built the Global Immigration Case Management Platform to help employers simplify the complexities that come with managing their workforce across borders,” said Dick Burke, president and CEO of Envoy. “We’re honored to be recognized by the Innovation Awards as one of Chicago’s most innovative companies, especially alongside so many other notable organizations.”

According to an Envoy survey, 59 percent of employers expect their demand for non-U.S. work authorization and/or business visas to increase in the next year and 60 percent experience compliance challenges in meeting this demand. Envoy’s Global Immigration Case Management Platform acts as a centralized solution for employers to manage all of their international employees by providing country-specific regulation requirements through smart, customized applications; centralized documentation and communication; transparency and compliance tools; and security measures to protect information.

“Global immigration complexities are forcing companies to be more diligent with their talent mobility,” said Sarah Maxwell, head of global immigration at Envoy. “Our mission is to help companies reach beyond borders, wherever opportunity calls, and we believe our service delivery combined with our platform is doing just that.”

Since its introduction in April 2017, the Global Case Management Platform has been used for almost 2,000 immigration cases and now includes authorization processes for over 100 countries around the world.
