Manually carrying out complex background checks is time-consuming and expensive

Positions of public importance

For candidates subject to public scrutiny, you require thorough background checks that involve information from open sources, enhanced commercial data sets and often sensitive HMG datasets.

Investigations becoming more complex

Carrying out these kinds of background check requires data from multiple sources and the ability to cross reference these disparate data sources to find hidden links.

Manually carrying out EDD is increasingly difficult

Having to manually login to numerous datasets and, one at a time, collate data, look for connections, and compile reports is incredibly draining on your team’s resources.
