Immigration Institute of the Bay Area

The Immigration Institute of the Bay Area (IIBA) provides high-quality immigration legal services, education, and civic engagement opportunities to immigrants, refugees, and their families as they join and contribute to the community.

What did Adaora (Spectra) have to offer?

Hi, my full time job is solving challenges like this one - that aren't really just about technology but technology can play a role in solving. I already started thinking of ideas; I'd need to learn a bit more about your current client base, any systems you're using, compliance/privacy restrictions (I imagine you manage sensitive information) and I'd be happy to do some thinking ahead of our call. Already have some ideas leveraging texting as a workflow, and maybe text forwarding to email as attachments. I'm passionate about immigration so would love to help.

Adaora (Spectra) was extremely helpful! She offered useful suggestions that my colleagues on our tech support team are already starting to research and implement. We are very grateful for the brainpower and the support!
