CASE STUDY "We develop and implement SimCorp Dimension, our world-class, front-to-back investment management solution," says Ashley Perez, an HR consultant at the Copenhagen-based firm. "In order for us to operate as a truly global business, it's important that our talent is able to seamlessly mobilize cross-border."

Any additional delay in an individual starting his or her role impacts productivity costing the company potential revenue. One of SimCorp's Canadian consultants needed a TN NAFTA Professional visa to obtain U.S. work authorization. "The consultant went to the border and it was denied. The law firm said they would fix the problem and that it wouldn't happen again. The applicant went to the border a second time and it was denied again," she says. Intrigued by Envoy's combination of cutting-edge technology and individualized support, SimCorp enlisted the company to resolve its SimCorp: Immigration Helps Denmark- Based Software Provider Corner North American Market Background SimCorp's software is an integrated investment management system that allows organizations in the financial sector to manage investments in real time.
