Background screening companies, also known as consumer reporting agencies (CRAs) increased use of WorldWatch Plus for global sanctions, PEP and adverse media checks in Q2 of 2017 by 55% over the same period last year. WorldWatch Plus suits CRA use by prioritizing search results with multiple subject identifiers.
KENNESAW, GA (PRWEB) AUGUST 15, 2017 - Consumer reporting agencies included WorldWatch Plus global sanctions, PEP and adverse media searches nearly 2 million times in the second quarter of 2017, an increase of 55% over the same period last year. The prevailing trend in the background screening industry is the addition of a global search tool onto the well-established national database checks. One industry leader characterized the trend as “national checks in a new pair of jeans.”
The increase in activity represents the growing evolution from county-specific searches to statewide checks, to national databases to global data sources. To meet the specific needs of clients in FCRA-regulated environments, WorldWatch Plus prioritizes results containing multiple identifiers, especially date of birth, that the CRA has searched.
