Maryland, known for its iconic sports teams like the Baltimore Orioles and Ravens, the prestigious United States Naval Academy, and the renowned Chesapeake Blue Crab, has presented considerable difficulties for Consumer Reporting Agencies (CRAs) and background screening companies when conducting public record searches and criminal background checks in the state.
In recent months, the industry has faced significant slowdowns, and in some cases, complete shutdowns when it comes to performing criminal background checks in Maryland. Many of you have experienced the loss of automated background check capabilities through the courts.
Consequently, turnaround times have skyrocketed, causing increased costs for your end-users. Last fall, InformData recognized this challenge within the data supply chain as our turnaround times went from a couple of hours to over 150 hours. We took it upon ourselves to address this issue by tasking our operations and engineering teams to develop a practical solution that would meet demand, expand access, and bring turnaround times back to an acceptable level.
