SAN FRANCISCO, CA, May 29, 2015 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Pearl Travel Tech's flagship product, PermisoTM, has just been awarded the Technological Innovation in Relocation Award by Re:locate Global, a leading global mobility organization headquartered in the UK. The award recognizes the effective and innovative use of technology within the relocation context. PermisoTM, is an online pre-trip assessment tool, which can be used both by international travelers and by employers managing immigration and tax compliance. PermisoTM impressed the judges, who were looking for real innovation in this fast-changing field.
"This is the only commercially available tool that integrates directly with travel booking and expense tracking systems, as well as with immigration and HRIS systems," explains Pearl Travel Tech's Julie Pearl. "It is the first assessment tool that considers both immigration and tax compliance issues, and that assesses more than just a single trip in isolation, by analyzing past travel history and future intended trips."
Technology is fast-changing and must respond to market needs and trends, so it's not surprising the category attracted a large number of entries. While the judges were impressed by the overall high quality, they described PermisoTM as "very effective and simple, with information and actions presented in an easy-to-understand format." They highlighted its role in helping to keep travelers and their companies compliant, thereby greatly reducing the risk of fines, project delays, rejection at port of entry, and a host of other potential compliance problems.
As travelers book or plan their trips, Permiso applies the rules of the destination country to the traveler's stated activities and travel history, instantly identifying the small minority of travelers who need to consult experts for possible work permits or tax filings.
Until now, most travelers have needed to consult legal/tax firms and other advisors to get the answers they need on immigration and tax compliance. This costs time and money Permiso was designed to constantly capture updated legal information from Pearl Law Group, an extensive network of immigration experts, and various global tax experts. The legal and technology veterans at Pearl Travel Tech believe that attorneys and their clients both win through careful automation. While this level of rule codification and analysis breaks new ground, it enables the legal and tax professionals to focus on the parts where they add the most value, saving their clients time and undue expense.
