The Critical Role of Technology in Global Mobility and Immigration

In today's increasingly complex global business environment, managing immigration and mobility for employees is a major challenge for companies. As regulations tighten and geopolitical situations evolve rapidly, having the right technology in place is no longer a luxury — it's a necessity.

During The View From The Top, Julia Onslow-Cole (Fragomen) weighed in on why leveraging advanced technology is crucial for global mobility programs. Here are some of the key reasons she highlighted:

Real-Time Tracking and Compliance

With constant disruptions like COVID-19, companies need real-time data and tracking capabilities to stay compliant. Governments are digitalizing their borders and immigration systems, making it easier than ever to identify non-compliance. Robust technology with centralized data management is required to avoid risks.

Simplified Processes with AI and Automation

AI and robotic process automation can streamline visa applications, reduce paperwork, and limit administrative burdens around immigration. Having an integrated platform that moves seamlessly from assessment to application is critical.

Crisis Response and Data Intelligence

In volatile situations requiring rapid response, like evacuating employees, having comprehensive data intelligence on employees' visa/immigration status is invaluable. Advanced analytics can also spot compliance trends before issues arise.

Cost Savings and Risk Reduction

By driving compliance and avoiding penalties/fines, companies with leading immigration technology can realize huge cost savings. Reducing manual data entry errors through automation further mitigates risks.

Government Digitalization and Data Sharing

Governments are rapidly digitalizing their immigration systems and enabling secure data sharing across departments and countries. Companies must have compatible technology to maintain compliance.

The Digital Future: Virtual IDs and Passports

Looking ahead, there is momentum towards adopting unified digital ID frameworks and virtual passports/travel documents. The most innovative companies are already preparing for this evolution.

Without robust technology "it would just be impossible to manage" global immigration and mobility compliantly in this era. By investing in the latest tools and platforms, companies can overcome the complexities, maintain integrity, and facilitate seamless cross-border workforce deployment.
