Unique Approach

Our research methodology makes us different. Every background check company offers employment checks but how they are conducted varies greatly. By conducting our research in-house, we are able to provide consistent, quality results. We are a risk management company powered by technology, not a call center. There is a difference.

We developed our own screening technology platform, Levels, to increase efficiency, transparency and empower HR professionals to retain full visibility and control of their program.
