Allegiant

Bridge eliminates immigration inefficiencies for Allegiant
Company Overview

Allegiant Travel Company is a leading leisure travel company, providing air transportation services to small, underserved cities in the United States.

The Challenge

Allegiant’s annual immigration volume grew 4x from 2013 to 2015, with the company’s total headcount growing from 1,600 to 2,800 employees (+75%). As a result the immigration function was overwhelmed with immigration-related tasks (e.g. signatures, email coordination, file storage), even with the support of outside counsel. The time spent on immigration management reduced the time their Talent Services team could spend on other key initiatives.
