Happy Applicant, Happy Company

Here at A-Check Global, we know that finding a qualified applicant to fill a specific position is so much more than just an accurate, comprehensive background screen. Filling a seat can be a lengthy and time-consuming process. From job board posting or working with a staffing agency, to holding interviews and selecting the most-qualified applicant for an offer letter . . . the whole process can easily take weeks. Then there’s the time involved requesting and completing a background screen.

It’s because of these demands on your time that we do everything in our power to help make the lives of HR professionals just a little easier. Many of our clients use A-Check’s web-based applicant portal that efficiently shifts the data entry portion of background and drug screening request from the requestor (usually your HR Department) to the applicant. This expedites the hiring process because keyboarding errors and duplicative data entry can be minimized. The result is a seamless workflow affording the applicant more control through the screening process, ultimately leading to faster processing times and greater satisfaction for both the applicant and company.

How we do it

With A-Check Global’s mobile friendly, secure portal, applicants can conveniently submit information online, upload supporting documentation, self-schedule drug screens (as applicable), sign documents electronically, and request electronic copies of their completed background screen reports.

Providing this level of convenience to your applicants while keeping them updated throughout the background screening process means they stay engaged with your company and are less likely to look elsewhere for employment . . . a win-win for everyone involved!

A-Check Global understands how important it is to delight both you and your applicants when partnering with us. This is why we’re driven to provide the best employment screening experience possible. Contact us today to learn more, and to request a demo of our online systems. We’d welcome the opportunity.


Why Choose Applicant Tracking System (ATS) Integration?

Integration 3

These days, many companies wrestle to balance employee workload and overall efficiency. As a result, employees might sometimes feel they are doing the work of three people or more. In that type of environment, it just makes sense to look for solutions that streamline responsibilities and quite frankly, make the job a little easier.

From a Human Resources technology standpoint, one effective solution is an applicant tracking system (ATS) integration. Many use some form of online ATS to hire, on-board and track applicants, and then another system(s) to perform pre-employment and/or drug screening before making employment decisions. An integrated solution unifies these functions through secure data sharing and a user friendly, web-based interface, providing the user a seamless operating environment.

The Goal is Effortless Employee Screening

Employment screening is a key part of the onboarding process. It helps ensure candidates are who they say they are and that they’re qualified to perform the job in question, while also helping to minimize employee-related risk pertaining to a company’s brand reputation, safety, and compliance.

Companies can realize significant benefits by integrating their employment screening process and ATS. A successful integration requires the cooperation of the employment screening provider and the applicant tracking system vendor to ensure software compatibility. Partnering with a screening provider dedicated to strong project management expertise while overseeing the entire process is also a must have.

The beauty of integrating is that you’ll have options to either take a simple workflow solution that’s both affordable and quick to implement, or a custom solution where you have the ability to develop around your specific business rules—integrating a workflow that makes sense to your organization and your system end users, while still providing convenience and efficiency to your candidates. Discussing these options with your employment screening partner will allow you to determine which will work best for your company.

At A-Check Global we’re a well-oiled integration machine

As an experienced employment screening provider with many successful integrations already in place through top ATS providers, A-Check Global works closely with you, combining current technologies with dedicated customer support to securely and effectively bring your company into the future of employee onboarding.

ATS integration allows your staff to maximize efficiency by eliminating redundant processes, thereby saving both time and money. It’s a win-win, and A-Check Global would be honored to partner with you toward that effective solution.
