In recognition of its efforts to use technology as a key business driver, VFS Global has won the prestigious Express Intelligent Enterprise Award 2015 for its Location Independent Document Processing (LIDProTM) solution. VFS Global was conferred the award at a ceremony held at the Fairmont Hotel in Jaipur.
LIDProTM is an innovative solution that enables remote processing of visa applications collected from multiple locations. A breakthrough initiative by VFS Global, LIDProTM was first developed in partnership with the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland, and allows stakeholders from multiple geographies to remotely process and assess visa applications on a single platform.
The award ceremony was part of the Indian Express Group-led Express Technology Senate, an annual forum for India’s leading CIOs and IT decision makers. The award recognises companies that have optimised IT to achieve business objectives, or have brought about measurable improvements in productivity/time to market.
Dhiren Savla, chief information officer, VFS Global said, “We are honoured to accept this award from the Express Group for their recognition of LIDProTM. This award validates our commitment to develop new technologies, and we will continue to enhance our efficiencies to set new benchmarks in innovation in the visa processing business worldwide.”
Zubin Karkaria, chief executive officer, VFS Global said, “The LIDProTM solution was a progressive innovation developed by VFS Global and we are proud of the awards and recognition it has received at multiple forums around the world. We firmly believe this solution represents the way forward in the flexibility and scale it offers governments, enabling them to optimise visa services while maintaining the overall integrity of the visa application process.”
