Accurate Background

Accurate is a global organization that has background checks available internationally. The report formatting could be improved. It's messy and difficult to read.

WinSearch

WinSearch works for a small recruiting company with low amounts of emails. Companies, where recruiters rely on heavy email, should avoid this due to delays and slow tech support fixes. Security and data breaches have occurred, and would negatively impact any company.

Cons

  • Background check report format could be improved by being easier to read. It's a little messy.
No photo available
  • Winsearch provides email which is easily overwhelmed resulting in hangups and painfully slow searches. This is fixable with workarounds, but still not worth the wait if you seek a reliable software.
  • Winsearch is susceptible to hacks, and security issues. The system can go down for as long as a week as a result of a hack. The resulting interruption of business makes this software package not a good buy.

Alternatives Considered

Accurate is much better. The most thorough background check company I have ever used.

JobDiva has more functionality, and costs a bit more. I have done a demo of JobDiva, but haven't been an active user.

Return on Investment

  • Our turn around time has decreased by half as far as complete background checks are concerned. This allows us to keep our candidates and improve their experience.
  • We averaged a savings of over $2,000/year thanks to Accurate's ability to create customized packages.

  • WinSearch database CRM is reliable and works well. Their email system negatively impacts my business. Security breaches and hacks could last 1 week and are very harmful to customers.
