Legal expert systems company, Neota Logic, has announced today that it has worked with KPMG Australia to help the Big Four firm launch a Business Visitor Assist Application for professionals coming to the country.
Neota explained that the KPMG Business Visitor Assist expert system is designed to assess and manage the obligations created by business visitors to Australia. Employees can record travel plans and receive instant pre-travel instructions regarding their visas and tax obligations.
I.e. it’s a Q&A system with benefits, that helps people to know what they have to do.
Is this a legal use case? Yes, as business immigration is clearly a legal practice area for many firms. Is it a big deal? Well, it certainly helps to reduce ‘friction’ in the system and is a great example of automating a workflow to speed up a volume process.
Tony O’Reilly, Director, Technology and Innovation at KPMG Australia, said: ‘Having visibility of employee travel has become a business-imperative to reduce risks and costs. An employers’ duty of care to their staff extends well beyond an employee’s physical safety. Overlooking these matters can have a detrimental effect. That’s why we designed this application to address these risks before the traveller even gets on the plane.’
Julian Uebergang, at Neota, added: ‘Through our no-code platform and commitment to client engagement, Neota liberates clients to quickly and efficiently build, or have built for them, bespoke tools to ensure expertise is both accessible and profitable. We’re delighted to be working with KPMG who has the vision to offer revolutionary services and mitigate risk for their clients’.
