backgroundchecks.com has been awarded a spot on the Inc. 5000 as one of America’s fastest-growing private companies for the second consecutive year. The Inc. 5000 is an exclusive listing of the fastest-growing private companies in America published by Inc. Magazine. In order to be awarded a spot on the fifth annual Inc. 5000, companies must have been founded and generating revenue since June 2007 and must have experienced significant growth between 2007 and 2010 - through the recession that began late in 2007.
"Now, more than ever, we depend on Inc. 500|5000 companies to spur innovation, provide jobs, and drive the economy forward. Growth companies, not large corporations, are where the action is," says Inc. magazine Editor Jane Berentson.
"Simply put, now is the time for innovation and improvements," said Craig Kessler, president of backgroundchecks.com. "While innovation is nothing without a quality product behind it, we’ve found that clients have come to expect innovation and the provider that doesn’t innovate is one that falls behind."
By attuning themselves to the needs of the marketplace and by recognizing the importance of user experience, backgroundchecks.com has been able to match their improvements to what is needed, dedicating most of 2011 to improving system usability and expanding their service offerings to include services such as international criminal history searches, verification screening, drug screening and grading.
One key in improving system usability was placing a concerted focus on backgroundchecks.com’s VendorSAFE platform. From streamlining order flows to adding intuitive technology and increasing overall system flexibility, they have focused on making VendorSAFE a best-in-breed screening platform. VendorSAFE provides a fast, effective and easy way for companies to implement a responsible screening program without incurring a cost for screening their contractors or vendors. With the rollout of these initiatives companies of all sizes can rely on backgroundchecks.com as their one-stop-shop screening provider.
