Execute the Most Efficient and Thorough Review of Job Applicants

Compile applicant data in one place, and streamline the interview and vetting process.

Applicant Background Screening


You’ve accumulated and reviewed initial applications. Now you need to evaluate the top candidates from the stack. Emergency service departments, agencies requiring security clearances, and other public entities that must rigorously check applicants’ backgrounds need a way to streamline an in-depth screening process.  


  • Work with digital forms that can be customized to collect a wealth of background information from applicants

  • Automatically assign and route investigation and approval duties to internal reviewers, supervisors, and interview panelists, as well as external stakeholders

  • Overlay notes from reviewers within application form fields

  • Aggregate external data sources, such as background checks and medical evaluations, with applications and interview notes into one view

  • Store applications in a central database and track their status via a user-friendly dashboard
