CHICAGO, Feb. 25, 2016 — VISANOW, which integrates the best of both technology and people to simplify and expedite the immigration process, announced record growth — 61 percent year-over-year — for its fiscal year ending Dec. 31, 2015.
The substantial growth reflects a 50 percent increase in new accounts compared to 2014, including the addition of numerous large enterprise customers across a variety of industries. During the year, VISANOW strengthened its management team, added to its sales team and made significant enhancements to its technology platform to continue building the best immigration management solution for customers, making the often arduous process much easier and more transparent. The company migrated its technology platform to the cloud to meet growing demand and provide industry-standard, award-winning built-in security and privacy measures. In addition, the company significantly expanded its global capabilities, resulting in a considerable expansion of outbound services.
“Attaining record growth is a testament to the extraordinary value we provide our customers — via a powerful combination of a customer-centric mentality, patented technology and high-quality affiliated legal representation,” said Dick Burke, president and chief executive officer of VISANOW. “Our dedicated and hard-working team has us well-positioned to continue advancing our strategy in the marketplace, and we’re already on pace this year to post similar record growth numbers.”
VISANOW streamlines the tedious and confusing visa application process by automatically gathering required information, forms and documents from both the sponsor and foreign national, then dynamically generating a complete, accurate and personalized application. Each customer is assigned a designated team of experienced and knowledgeable VISANOW-affiliated attorneys, who review the applications and provide consistent, proactive counsel and personalized attention throughout the process. This combination of automation, transparency and high customer touch offers an unparalleled user experience — driving a net promoter score of 77.
Amidst a year of dramatic growth, VISANOW was recognized by Built In Chicago as one of the Top 100 Digital Companies in Chicago and won the Moxie Award for Best Service Provider. In addition, Burke was named one of Chicago’s top 50 Technology Leaders by Crain’s Chicago Business in its annual Tech 50 list.
