Tips to prepare for the final stretch of the H-1B cap season|INSZoom
PREPARED TO HIT THE HOME STRETCH OF
THIS H-1B CAP SEASON?
We’re in the homestretch of the H-1B cap
season 2018! With less than four weeks
remaining before the filing period, we’re sure
you’re on top of your H-1B game. We hope this
quick summary of tips will ensure that nothing
falls through the cracks during this narrowing
window of time!
1. REPORTING, REPORTING, REPORTING!
There’s still time, so be sure to leverage on your existing client
database to identify last minute H-1B applicants who may
have missed out on last year’s CAP lottery or applicants
outside the U.S. or in another status. INSZoom Business
Intelligence and Ad hoc Reports will help you identify
applicants, run reports and track many more benchmarks.
2. THE H-1B WORKFLOW
The H-1B workflow remains relatively unchanged because the
inherent process has remained unchanged. Following our
immigration case management workflow allows you to
efficiently manage daily caseloads and anticipate possible
bottlenecks between your team and your clients.
3. DOES EVERYONE ON YOUR TEAM
KNOW WHAT ‘TO-DO’ TOMORROW?
Just because you’ve already let someone know that they need
to get back to you on something doesn’t relieve you from
reminding them. People miss messages, forget or overlook
things on their ‘To-Do’ list. Develop and stick to constant and
a continual system of reminders and follow ups which is
exactly what our INSZoom To-Do Module lets you do!
4. WAIT -ARE YOU GETTING PAID FOR
Amidst the unforgiving timelines of the H-1B cap season, don’t
forget that someone has to pay for all those government filing
fees. Make sure that your funds will account for every single
government check issued or that the company has directly
provided these checks well in advance so you’re not scrambling
before March 30th. The INSZoom Billing Module is one of a kind,
the only invoicing tool created specifically for immigration
workflows. INSZoom Billing allows you to send invoices and
reminders directly from the application. You can link cases and
timers, create custom payment plans and track and manage
5. KEEP YOUR EMAILS IN CONTROL!
It’s easy to send one email asking for an update. It’s a lot
harder to update several hundred employees, HR reps and
concerned managers one by one. Remember those helpful
workflows and process steps? If you’ve kept them up to date,
it’ll come in handy when your clients are logging into their
user accounts to check status instead of mailing you
directly. The INSZoom Partner Portals make immigration
processes more transparent for your foreign nationals and
corporate partners making the entire H-1B experience open,
clear, transparent and immediate.
6. AFTER APRIL 1, YOU’RE STILL NOT
The H-1B season doesn’t really end after filing so be sure that
you have a system to track and confirm delivery of the filings at
the service centers. Be ready to receive and record receipts for
the petitions that are selected in the lottery and break the bad
news for the ones that didn’t.
Stay calm, keep your focus and get onboard with INSZoom, if you
