Garden Grove, CA, January 04, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- The PowerScreen system, tested extensively through late 2007, was officially introduced in early January along with an enhanced background screening services menu. It gives employers, leasing and rental managers and other decision-makers the ability to safely and securely access SourcingPoint Solutions’ entire PowerScreen line of hiring and risk management tools from any computer with an Internet browser, and it delivers most screening results in seconds.
Through the new system, users can quickly and efficiently perform social security traces and credit history checks, review motor vehicle records, search criminal history data, access worker’s compensation claim information and history, reference a name against the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) “watch list,” screen for drug use, and even verify employment eligibility status (I-9 verification). In addition, property and rental managers can use the PowerScreen system to review a prospective tenant’s eviction records and verify employment status.
John Christopher, a Program Specialist at SourcingPoint Solutions, says the online system represents his company’s efforts to offer “more accessibility and affordability” to the diverse organizations that have begun to implement screening processes.
“We’ve learned through our research and customer feedback that more and more businesses are seeking tools to help them reduce their exposure to risk,” says Christopher. “They understand the benefit of screening, and they want fast access to accurate information without having to pay premium fees for it.”
“What we’ve also found,” Christopher adds, “is that this emerging demand isn’t contained within a certain market or market segment. It’s across the whole landscape.” To support his point, Christopher cites PowerScreen’s growing client list, which includes medical transportation companies, real estate brokerages and property management firms, architectural offices and churches.
The PowerScreen system offers packaged services that are optimized for employment screening and tenant screening applications, but users can also create their own packages, or choose from an extensive list of a la carte services to create an ideal screening profile. All activity on the new system is transaction-based, so users are charged only for completed screening orders. There are no account setup charges or monthly minimums.
Immediately prior to the official release of the online system, SourcingPoint Solutions enhanced its PowerScreen services offering by adding military employment verification and educational transcript searches.
