Tracker: Celebrating 20 Years of No I-9 Fines
As the Tracker team kicked off a new decade, they can celebrate yet another year of zero I-9 fines. The benchmark caps a perfect 20-year track record amidst increased ICE audits and heightened corporate penalties.
In a world where inaccurate I-9 completion can lead to seven-figure fines, our accomplishment serves an important milestone, a testament to the quality of the suite of products we have developed and our effort to stay ahead of the times.
The story of our products dates back to 1997 when the need for an immigration solution was first identified by the Chair of Tracker Corp (later acquired by Mitratech) and the former head of the USCIS/INS, both seasoned veterans of legal immigration enforcement. This discovery led to support from the Pearl Law Group and the launch of Immigration Tracker the following year.
The product was revolutionary, serving as the first non-proprietary platform for full immigration case management (IMS). The need was recognized by the world’s foremost enterprises, serving as the first step along a path of future successes.
Building success upon success
In just five years, ImmigrationTracker grew to become the chosen solution among the majority of top-rated US immigration law firms. The team next sought to broaden its portfolio of immigration solutions by addressing the I-9. In 2009, I-9 Complete was launched, marking the release of their first I-9 platform. The response was so strong that just one year later, ICE submitted a press release announcing the approval of Tracker I-9 Complete as an electronic I-9 solution for a recently audited employer.
Our I-9 solution became the leader in automated I-9 completion, but it specifically addressed new I-9s. In pursuit of broadening our product offerings, Tracker took on the challenge of leveraging technology to remedy historical I-9s. The goal was to not only eliminate damaging errors but to do so for a fraction of the cost and time.
Our efforts paid off: in 2013; we launched the first automated I-9 remediation tool, a best-in-class product that enabled companies to address their full suite of new and existing I-9s.
The launch of ImmigrationTracker, I-9 Complete, and I-9 Resolve served as technological breakthroughs in immigration law and enforcement. Beyond the launches, and just as significant, has been Tracker’s ongoing commitment to leveraging the best technological advancements and staying current with the latest versions of the applicable immigration forms. After millions of I-9s produced and a record number of audits, our breakthrough technology continues to stand above, with a perfect record of success.
