Checkr
Checkr is streamlining and automating the background check process, which is a tremendous benefit for a small HR team who typically doesn't have the bandwidth to manually conduct education verifications or criminal searches, but hires in a massive scale. Checkr nicely integrates with my ATS, Payroll, and security monitoring platform for SOC 2 compliance, making things more efficient, especially with a small HR team. Ordering background checks takes only a couple of clicks.

NameScan
In our specific case, NameScan is an interesting piece of software for administratively verifying the identity of those who have to enroll in courses or discuss a Thesis. The fact that NameScan can be integrated with other software (anti-plagiarism, for example, Turnitin) guarantees greater use efficiency. In this case, the integrated verification of identity and possible plagiarism helps us significantly limit fraud.

NameScan
  • The software still generates confusion, especially in the case of Asian names, often repetitive or similar to each other. In this case, the information it returns is not very accurate.
  • The numerous integrative databases that can be purchased are really very expensive.
  • NameScan is graphically unintuitive.

Checkr
We have not used any services other than Checkr. We started using Checkr over a year ago and have had no need to try other services. Checkr provides us with the services we need in an easy, complete format. Background / Criminal history checking are our primary use of Checkr and it provides these seamlessly.

NameScan also offer us best competitive price .

Return on Investment
Checkr
  • It is sped up our onboarding process quite a bit since background checks now happen at a pretty fast pace.
  • Integration with our ATS has also kept our workflow simple, so my team doesnt need to get training on a separate software and manage multiple logins.

NameScan
  • It allowed us to limit the admission of non-welcome people to the University.
  • It has allowed us to limit the number of frauds in the context of thesis discussions, especially doctoral ones.
  • NameScan has become fundamental in our university's internalisation to verify, in particular, people arriving from countries at risk.
