  • add on other checks and bankruptcy etc as add on package.
  • The File download can the name be auto update the candidate name and role apply would be useful.
Company looking for easy to use trouble-free, user friendly. automation with regular reminders to both candidates and referees to ensure the details are completed. Quick turnaround time.

When it comes to the company that requires customization of the questions or on the special area to check all the time, Xref reference may lack that area.

  • Quality of references
  • Positive: ROI saving us money
  • Turnaround of reference positive
  • Con, maybe they can looking in to integrating some of ATS for us eg: Jobvite can easy one button send the xreference
