Easiest background checker around!!

Checkr gives me the chance to look at the whole picture of someone I’m hiring giving me the chance to make a sound and safe hiring decision for the company.

Pros

How easy it was to navigate around the site it wasn’t a long drawn out process like other sites!

Cons

The lay out could have been better. Things placed in different areas than they were.

Reasons for Choosing Checkr

Because of their ratings and from word of mouth of other colleagues in the same industry and position as myself.

Saved me so much time when I was hiring contractors!

Using Checkr I was able to focus my time and energy on running my marketing business, rather than chasing down personal information and gathering forms around town from contractors for weeks. Checkr sped up my hiring process by several weeks because I was able to get background check results online within days.

Pros

I loved the fact that Checkr handled the whole background check process for me completely online. I saved so much time when I was hiring contractors to service the online leads I was getting. All I had to do was input some basic information about my contractors like their e-mail address, and Checkr started doing the rest for me right away. They send an e-mail to your potential contractors or employees. After clicking the link in the e-mail your contractors can fill in all of their personal information on their own time. This is great for privacy reasons too and it helps your contractors feel more at ease knowing their information is being handled through a secure system. The entire process is very quick and you don't have to worry about anything except monitoring the background check results as they come in online.

Cons

If I had to find a negative, I would say that the platform seemed very new and it offered very basic features, services, and a very simple design. The platform is being updated all the time though and I was able to perform a variety of different types of background checks efficiently.

Great software for conducting background checks

Overall, its an awesome platform to integrate with your system for performing the hard manual work of doing background checks online.

Pros

Checkr provides a list of properly documented APIs which can be easily integrated with your system for performing background checks. The results shared by the APIs can then be used for making a decision on the candidate based on the background checks

Cons

Not much wrong about this software. It integrated nicely with your systems and for any issues which arise in integration, the customer can help you out for resolving those.

Easily integration with Planning Center

My church has to regularly run a background check against any new volunteers and this tool (Checkr) allows us to do it with minimal effort and yet still have all the confidence in the result. We also had the issue of only certain people knowing how to use our previous background check resource and it became a bit of an issue trying to understand who had been screened and who still needed to be checked. Checkr solved all of that

Pros

The biggest perk to using Checkr is the integration with Planning Center. It makes the whole process very easy and almost effortless. We run background checks on all our volunteers at our church. I can log into People on Planning Center and will go to the volunteers profile in People and then execute the background check from the view. It's awesome and a perfect perk to using planning center!

Cons

We have been using Checkr for about 3 months and I have yet to find and issue or probably with it. It meets my every need

Reasons for Choosing Checkr

[SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] has awful UI and the experience is very poor. You can get the background checks done but with zero frills.Checkr on the other hand is super easy to use and aesthetically pleasing. And the biggest advantage Check has over other products is it's integration with Planning Center.

Reasons for Switching to Checkr

Integration into Planning center
