Checkster
Checkster is best suited for organizations that hire more than 100 applicants a year. For organizations with high turnover, this is an outstanding way to weed out candidates early in the process and make more room for sound decision making with current hires. Organizations with seasonal and or hourly staff would benefit greatly from this application.

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.

Cons
Checkster

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.

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.
