A faster and more affordable background check solution

Tailor-made for the high-volume hiring of hourly, salaried, shift-based, or independently contracted workers. Our platform is optimized for speed, accuracy, and price, but what truly sets us apart is our customer service.

The imperfect nature of U.S. public records can be amplified when dealing with younger individuals, new immigrants, or ESL (English Second Language) speakers. Our high-touch applicant support workflow and critical internal processes ensure that every applicant can move through the background check process seamlessly. Our industry leading turnaround times and low dispute rates are a testament to this.
