Zoomlee is a star in my eyes and here’s why…

I am an avid traveler, and love to be on-the-go exploring places. This calls for effective and safe organization of important documents, without which I can’t get far. With the new Zoomlee app, my dedicated time to prepare documents for my travel has vanished. Prior to my travel dates, I don’t set aside a day anymore, to merely sort out files and documents, gathering important documents that I would require. Zoomlee has taken away that extra time and effort off my shoulders.

With Zoomlee’s incredibly intelligent features, I can upload necessary documents with relevant dates from anywhere at any time, and forget about them. Here is the coolest part, Zoomlee even notified me when my passport was about to expire. Now, that’s what I call a SMART app! I was able to share documents with my family members, hassle-free. There was no need to hunt for a local scanning store carrying around my documents. As long as I was connected to the internet, sharing documents was only a click away.

Not to mention, calling for emergency help is made easier than ever before. One can find the nearest police stations, hospitals, consulates, embassies, and more only on Zoomlee. Personally, I am not aware of an application that makes traveling overseas easier than Zoomlee does. No matter which corner of the world I am in, whatever may be the local time, Zoomlee has always got my back. I say this with first-hand experience using Zoomlee to my satisfaction. Download it NOW my friends!

Tax Revised 2

 

 

We all know how painful it can get at the end of the year when we need to file our taxes.

Step 1 : You need to get W2 from your employer.

Step 2 : You need to look at all your investments and get the required 1099 forms from various institutions and keep them safely until you are ready to file your return.

Step 3 : You also need to report any foreign income under the FBAR (Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts) and need to get bank statements and tax withholdings from your overseas banks.

Added to this is the complexity of tracking the number of days spent outside your home country to determine resident status for tax filing. You can now store all this information securely in Zoomlee under finance category and send all this information to your CPA with just one click through an email. And yes, tax tracking days has been made simpler with Zoomlee’s automatic GPS based tracking when you travel. Enjoy your travel and let Zoomlee take care of filing your taxes for 2015!

Helplee!

Kumar & family

 

Foreign travel for me is always exhausting and with complex immigration rules, it’s stressful as well. I’ve had trouble managing my travel documents, particularly passport and visa pages with their expiry dates. During family travel, my mind always used to be preoccupied with such issues, instead of enjoying the trip. I was looking for a simple but effective tool that would help me and my family. That’s when I came across Zoomlee. It’s a cool app. I can scan and store all my travel documents and they are accessible on-the-go anytime. My favorite feature is that I can access my documents even when there is no connectivity and that came in handy once in an airport when I needed them the most.

Downloading and setting it up in my iPhone was a breeze. One feature I like the most is that it allows me to have multiple pages of the same document and due to this document management is so easy. It gives me all the expiry alerts I need for me to take action and stay compliant.

Now, thanks to Zoomlee, I’m spending quality time with my family during travel, instead of worrying about travel documents.

My dream to pursue Master’s in Computer Science in the USA turned into reality on August 2014, as my admission was accepted at Arizona State University.  It is true that the entire application process can be gruesome and involves a lot of documentation work. In such a case, keeping your documents intact and handy is necessary.

The university instructed me to carry all my original documents for their verification purpose. After my arrival, I headed straight to the university and got my documents sorted. Assuming that all my necessary procedures were done, I decided to keep my documents in safe place rather than carrying them around and worrying about them. However, I unexpectedly had to fill in some extra forms, for which I had to keep referring to my documents. For instance, to fill in the CPT form, my passport details, I-94 details, etc. were required, as these details are not easy to remember I had to physically carry my documents everywhere. I was constantly worried about losing my important documents.

To ease out the documentation, I kept soft copies in my Drop Box account. However, I realized that I had to manually segregate them into folders, which was again a time-consuming and frustrating task. I knew I had to do something to make my documents easily available and at the same time not having to carry them physically everywhere.

Then, I came across this app ‘Zoomlee’, which made my life so easy and organized. All I had to do was click a photo of the document, fill in some basic details and the app did it all. The app organized all the documents with minimal effort and managing them has become considerably easy. The biggest highlight is that I can access all my documents even without the internet. That’s a big thumbs-up from me.

With so many aspirants who visit international places for their future endeavors, carrying multiple documents and keeping them safe is quite a task. Zoomlee helps to reduce this stress with its fantastic features and surely makes life much simpler. I strongly recommend every student & traveler download this app to make travel stress-free.

Safer Travel with Secure Travel Documents

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluslinkedinFacebooktwittergoogle_pluslinkedin

When travelling abroad, things that are merely inconvenient at home become disasters in a foreign country. Expired documents, lost wallet, missing paperwork, on a business trip are headaches at the least, or can get you jailed or deported at the worst.

Our immigration law firm Visawolf manages global travel and work visas for hundreds of corporate travelers every year.  We advise them to make copies of their physical documents for reference if needed during the trip.

Tips for safer overseas corporate travels include:

  • Saving a photo of the front and back of each credit card. Having the card data backed up is important for reporting a lost card and requesting a replacement.  The number of the issuer is on the back of the card, and the front has all the information you need to reference your account.
  • Pics of your driver’s license, visa, and passport is handy as well, in case your paperwork is lost or destroyed on your trip. It will be easier to report your case to the consulate or police with a back up of your identification.
  • Carry an emergency contact list of important numbers in-country, and back home. Too often we hit Speed Dial on our favorite numbers, and cannot recall the specific phone numbers. Also include contact info for your corporate travel booker, local office, hotel, and local friends.

The least secure way to back up your information is to make photocopies and carry paper printouts.  This is old-school, and can be helpful in a pinch, but storing paper copies in your luggage or wallet means they can be lost, stolen, copied, or misplaced.

Slightly more safe is to save the backups as files on your computer or smart phone.  The downside is that the data might not be secure, and the device itself can be lost or compromised.

The most secure and our recommended way to back up travel docs, as well as gain access to many other travel features, is to use the Zoomlee app.  Storing data and docs in Zoomlee’s encrypted service provides access to backups on your device, as well as in the cloud, with secure data protection.  You can access information on your local device, from the cloud, and even share data safely with your family, lawyer, authorities, and co-workers.

In addition to having your global travel docs prepared by immigration professionals, keeping backups of those and other docs will help keep you safe as you travel. Contact Visawolf for your work visa and global travel services, and use Zoomlee app to store your documents.
