Streamlining background checking to make the process easier for everyone


Applying for a job is a rigorous commitment – from the initial application to interview to negotiating terms. Your chosen candidates have already demonstrated their enthusiasm so it’s important not to temper this with a drawn-out, laborious process for background checking.  

Our digital platform transforms background checking into an opportunity to impress your incoming employees, enhancing your reputation as an employer and ensuring your new joiners feel confident they’ve made the right choice. Digitised processes are particularly relevant right now when so much of the workforce is working remotely, with legislation such as Right to Work checks supporting this.

With automation to smooth the process - for managers, employees and new recruits – it’s user-friendly and accessible, guiding everyone through each stage, at the right time. It can be personalised to welcome every new joiner in any role, providing a world-class employee experience to foster trust, confidence and excitement about their new role.

Faster screening turnaround times mean your candidates can start as soon as possible, And with the whole picture of your new joiners, you’ll be making better-informed hiring decisions to protect your organisation from risk.


The dropout rate between offer and start date in certain industries - friction for new joiners is an undeniable challenge for employers
