Workforce Safety

The safety of employees, customers, and the community is enhanced when employers are informed of indicators of fraud, theft, and violence throughout the employee lifecycle.

Our pre-hire solutions enhance the quality and effectiveness of background checks, while our post-hire monitoring solutions provide real-time alerts on new serious crimes within an active workforce or contractor list.

School and Volunteer Safety

Non-profits, churches, and schools have an elevated responsibility to maintain effective background screening protocols; when vulnerable populations are at risk, timely and accurate criminal data is essential.

With our suite of data solutions, background screeners are enhancing the thoroughness of the applicant vetting process and alerting these organizations when a volunteer has been arrested for a new crime that threatens the safety and livelihood of many.

Tenant Screening

Help your clients avoid past due rent, property damage, disgruntled neighbors, and costly evictions. The cost of a bad renter is high, but the cost of a bad tenant screening process could be even higher.

Appriss Insights offers tenant screeners access to timely data that enhances the quality, efficiency, and accuracy of their research.
