Criminal background check solutions for resellers

backgroundchecks.com works behind the scenes with hundreds of companies around the globe, transferring our criminal data through a web services gateway. This allows businesses to perform thousands of searches everyday without ever touching the report. Our portfolio includes some of the largest web properties and we continue to meet the expectations of their growing business.

Instant Criminal Database and Traditional Direct Court House Searches

For immediate answers with our instant database searches, we obviously strive to collect all electronically-available data from statewide repositories, specifically the files from the Department of Corrections and the Administrative Office of the Courts.

But in addition, we strive to acquire and update our database with as many county and municipal court records as possible, especially in states that do not collect criminal record data at the state level.

Many of database competitors offer only the 'low hanging fruit' and/or out-dated flat files of information. We have an entire team dedicated to uncovering new county, state, Department of Corrections and security sources so you and your customers have access to one of the most comprehensive criminal database available. In the last 12 months alone we have added 100 new sources. And our data acquisition department is dedicated to ensuring a 5 day turnaround time with our data. That means that within 4 days of receiving a data file from a source, our team has loaded, tested, and updated the data in our criminal records database. Because of this turnaround, new information is available up to 75% faster, providing you the most updated resources possible.

If you are interested to find out if we support a specific county for your customers, please take a look at our interactive coverage map to learn more about our county sources in each state or contact us to discuss our database source coverage in detail.

Our resellers can also tap into our system for direct court searches in every county and state. Some results are returned within hours; the average turn-around time is 2-3 days.

Why is an instant criminal database search so important?

Some people might think that all background checks are alike, but there is a big difference between what is considered a traditional criminal record search and a multi-jurisdictional criminal database search. Depending on the type of search you choose, the difference in results can be astounding.

Now more than ever, it is important that a traditional county search is complemented by a multi-jurisdictional criminal database search. You don’t want to miss records that you could have easily been found with a database search. This combined approach is a cost effective way to broaden your search and get a more accurate picture of your subject.

In our video we explain how it works.
