30 Innovative Brands of the Year 2022
The Silicon Review
Immigrating to another country is not a simple task. It requires an individual to follow several complex steps, which can be very difficult to navigate without proper guidance. Each and every country has its own immigration policies and requirements that should be followed to successfully relocate to that country. It is advisable to seek the assistance of well-known immigration companies to help you get started with your move and ultimately reduce the stress involved in dealing with the complex process of moving abroad.
Globally, there are various companies delivering excellent immigration services, but Allcanza stands out from the rest. Allcanza provides secure, streamlined, and guided immigration services at a fraction of the normal cost of an attorney. But, unlike some form fillers online, Allcanza provides a suite of resources that holistically helps its customers reach their goals. Secure filing, AI, live guides, language learning software, independent attorney reviews, and all this in the most spoken languages in the world.
In conversation with Michael Hendricks, Founder of Allcanza
Q. What motivated you to start Allcanza?
I began Allcanza with the vision of providing a more cost-effective and secure process for those seeking certain immigration benefits. Immigration is difficult, complex, and thus expensive, and although a person can theoretically submit an application on their own, it is rarely done in a streamlined, stress-free, and successful manner. I want to change that for everyone. I want everyone to have access, and I want to tear down the barriers that make people believe that they cannot achieve their immigration dreams. Whether it is lack of prior education, lack of English proficiency, lack of access to an attorney, or any other obstacle, we want to help those who have the drive to obtain their immigration dream achieve it. We are tearing down all obstacles to the American immigration dream.
Q. How do potential clients approach you? And what are the various technologies leveraged by you in your lead generation efforts?
The potential client needs nothing more than a computer and internet access. We are a completely web-based business with a very small physical footprint in order to keep the cost down for our clients. We have used AI to automate the whole process, but just in case you still need a human touch, we have guides to respond to specific questions about the process, our system, and the next steps. To be clear, we do not provide legal services; we have just created a system that guides you, keeps your cost low, and ensures your process is secure. This allows the customer to reach their dreams on their schedule, at a better price point, and all while helping them feel a sense of achievement.
Q. Documentation processes are complex in immigration for people to understand. How do you make the processes more feasible and transparent?
This is the reason we created Allcanza. The system is unnecessarily complex and hard to understand; then, the government puts up instructions that make it seem even more daunting and difficult. We have simplified the process. We turn ten questions into one, provide simple explanations for seemingly complex questions, and leverage AI to streamline your process by telling exactly what documents you need and where to send the application package. Most of the time, the customer would answer the same question for every different form they have to fill in; with Allcanza, they only answer once, and it fills it in for them. We do all of this in their own language. Right now, we are perfecting the English and Spanish suites, but soon it will be in Tagalog, Mandarin, Hindi, and Swahili. We also provide the option for an independent attorney review. Also, we cannot discount language learning. In partnership with CelsUS, Allcanza offers a suite of language learning tools that helps new English speakers pass the Naturalization exam and reviews all the questions for those who know English and just want to have an examination study buddy. This suite is built especially for those going through the Naturalization process, and it is offered at a price point that is unbeatable.
Q. Specialized offerings come with an expensive price tag. How do you maintain your affordability and profitability?
We have kept the price tag so affordable by automating the system and using AI. And we can do this without losing a human touch. Currently, we have guides that can respond to questions in both English and Spanish. Soon we will have them available in other major languages and in various countries all over the globe. We are focused on keeping the price tag low, the quality high, and exceeding every expectation.
Q. Do you have any new services ready to be launched?
Allcanza has a target date of the fourth quarter of 2022 to launch additional immigration services. As a next step, we will be looking to provide fiancée and adjustment of status services. The system is created to scale for any process. For example, if Congress approved a DACA pathway, then we will be able to quickly provide a software solution for this application process.
Q. What does the future hold for your company and its customers? Are exciting things on the way?
We are excited to announce that we will be launching our native application that will be available on Apple IOS and Google Play in the first quarter of 2022. This application will make it much easier to upload documents and keep up to date on the immigration process even without immediate access to a computer and the internet.
Meet the leader behind the success of Allcanza
Michael Hendricks is the visionary behind Allcanza. He was raised in Central Mexico and has lived in or visited 8 countries, and as such his background gives him a unique blend of language skills, cultural knowledge, and compassion for the immigrant population of the United States. At the age of seventeen he came to the U. S. and later attended the University of New Mexico, where he graduated with a focus in international politics with honors. He went on to obtain his Juris Doctor from UNM School of Law with his focus in International Law. He studied immigration law under John W. Lawit and worked for his firm; subsequently, he became a managing attorney for Whittenburg Law Firm and Beacon Immigration. Finally, he received his M.B.A. in International Business from Walden University. Michael founded his own law firm and began to see the need for a more accessible and streamlined process for immigrants to have access directly to immigration. As much as he loves being an attorney, he saw that he was nothing more than a middleman that interpreted unnecessarily complex instructions and document requirements. He believed that there had to be better and less expensive ways for immigrants to achieve their immigration dreams. This is when Allcanza was born.
