Background Checks are Not Created Equal
Getting a complete picture of a candidate’s criminal history is often more complex than people think. At Sterling, we make it easy for you to make fast, more accurate, and safer hiring decisions through a combination of robust services, solutions, and technology that allows us to:
Uncover more criminal activity
Gain direct access to more US criminal records
Deliver accurate results quickly
With CourtDirectTM, our proprietary automation technology allows Sterling to digitally access 85% of US criminal search records. Some county jurisdictions still rely on paper records, where a county clerk needs to manually retrieve those records. In situations like these where automation isn’t available, we have our own dedicated team of court researchers available, which allows Sterling to find and deliver physical court records faster than third-party court runners.
