In the fast-paced world of HR, being able to place qualified candidates quickly puts you ahead of your competition. We deliver employment screening background checks in record time, including criminal records from all U.S. jurisdictions. We help you make critical hiring decisions with both speed and confidence.

You can also save time, money and reduce data entry errors by using our Candidate Verification Center (CVC). Candidates submit their own background order information and electronically sign disclosure forms, freeing your staff from these tasks.

Accurate, Reliable Reports

To ensure accuracy, we focus on three key areas:

  • Staff training. Employees complete a variety of rigorous training programs ranging from 6 to 13 weeks. Prior to performing work, staff must also pass proficiency tests for accuracy and speed. 
  • Dual inspection process. To deliver consistently high-quality background reports, an experienced Quality Control Specialist double-checks every order.
  • Random audits. A Quality Control Team Leader conducts periodic random audits to measure quality and consistency.

As an add-on option, you can also enable potential employees to enter their own information, to save you time when ordering background checks and verifications. Learn more about our technology:
