InformData’s Game Changing National Criminal Database Solution

Over the years CRAs like you asked why InformData didn’t offer a National Criminal Database solution. They told us that they just didn’t love what was out in the market, that enterprise CRAs were light years ahead with their multi-million-dollar proprietary databases and that there was no transparency of data or enough flexibility to consume the data exactly as you wanted it. We listened, asked our best and brightest data scientists to think about it, and recently discovered the value we could add. 

Today, InformData announces a game changing step forward in people-data information with our reimagined National Criminal Database solution. In a rapidly changing hiring environment, CRAs are squeezed between employers’ need to know everything they can about an individual and the imperative to process checks inexpensively and efficiently. Consequently, the market demands a new approach to identifying and processing potential criminal records outside the jurisdictions where candidates have lived.  

Until now national criminal databases available to CRAs have been a mystery in terms of transparency of data sources. “Mysterious data” has been a source of friction in the screening process and prone to cause wild goose chases where CRAs pursue information that either cannot be reported or is unimportant to the employer. This decreases a CRA’s value to employers at a time when competitive advantage is often measured in pennies and CRA’s are seeing automation commoditize their core screening services.

Size and Transparency of Data Matter

Our enhanced National Criminal Database solution features over 850 million unique criminal records derived from over 2,000 different municipalities at the County, State, and Federal levels across the United States, and aggregates all this information into an easily accessible cloud data solution. That’s not all. We enhance our database using our nationwide army of automated court bots and physical researchers that continuously add records to our database 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. With over 90% of the US population covered, the national criminal records coverage of InformData’s database outflanks the competition and represents the largest electronically available criminal records source, period. And with our developer-friendly APIs, turnkey integration, making you closer to the most comprehensive data available, has never been easier.

Imagine the simplicity of being able to manage your entire criminal records history search from one place. Simply combine your court data and criminal record search directive in our enhanced, easily integrated National Criminal Database solution to optimize efficiency and reliability from a single vantagepoint. 

InformData’s game changing solution places a premium on data scope, transparency and reporting cleanliness while making the entire process push-button efficient and customizable. 

Background screening companies of all sizes can finally get excited about the National Criminal Database business as a source of revenue and competitive advantage. 

And best of all, there are two ways for CRAs to win from a profitability standpoint — InformData’s product is priced aggressively and we’ve included expanded filtering capabilities at no additional charge. This level of sophistication, unseen in previous market offerings at any price, allows you to reduce the overhead associated with processing results, increasing profit on every search you perform.

Of course, the proof is in the data. We’ve tested our solution against the leading databases in the marketplace and we’re sure you’ll come to the same conclusion — our expansive data, easy integration and sophisticated filtering make this National Criminal Database solution a game changer.

There’s only one way to find out. We invite you to give our data a test drive.
