Customers Leverage Accurate Background’s Extensive Network of In-Country Experts to Quickly Get API Results They Can Trust While Minimizing Risk

Irvine, CA – November 19, 2015 – Employment background check provider Accurate Background today announced it has extended its advanced background screening and trust economy API to include international searches. Using the Accurate API v2.0, customers can easily screen candidates across a wide variety of global markets.

Accurate Background has spent the last decade building a vast network of regional and in-country representatives to leverage their data availability, regulatory expertise, language abilities and cultural experience. The Accurate API allows customers to tap this network for the international data they need to hire quickly, while minimizing risk and improving the candidate experience.

For example, a major online retailer wanted to expand its screening program in the United Kingdom and increase automation. They needed to deploy the program in time for their peak seasonal hiring, a compressed timeframe in which thousands of workers would be placed at their sites. Criminal checks in the UK follow Disclosure Scotland requirements, which the API leverages for the search. Accurate Background developed a streamlined way to collect candidate documentation, send searches to its local representatives, and receive results back via the API. These process improvements resulted in a significant turnaround time reduction for the client and enabled them to staff-up quickly for the holiday season.

 “We continue to make technology enhancements to our API. Today’s announcement allows our customers to improve the candidate search scope for international searches,” said Alek Zdziarski, Chief Product Officer at Accurate Background. “Our unmatched network of regional and in-country partners ensures our customers have the best, most secure, and accurate data available through the API with the assurance of compliance to local and international laws.”

Accurate Background has run a large volume of background checks in 56 countries in the past year. This functionality now comes to its API offering.

The Accurate Background API is the preferred solution for companies in the trust economy, on-demand and shared services space and is known for its broad offering, flexible workflows and simple integration capabilities. Unlike competitive offerings, Accurate Background’s API offers criminal checks, public records, drug testing and education and employment verifications and is fully backed by award-winning customer support. This means users not only get fast, efficient technology, but the industry know-how needed to avoid risk and provide great candidate experiences.
