Securitec Debuts New Starter Monitoring Package for CRAs

Roanoke, VA, January 9, 2020 - Securitec Screening, pioneer of the 100% wholesale Court Data as a Service (CDaaS) approach, has launched a “starter monitoring package” that provides CRAs with a comprehensive product at a low price to help them drive new services and revenue expansion.

Monitoring is an important trend and function in the background screening industry due to the increased accountability of organizations to protect their clients, employees, investors, volunteers, and contractors from risks associated with criminal activity. The days of a one-time pre-hiring criminal background screen of W-2 employees only are limited. Organizations are moving to ongoing criminal record screening of all constituents associated with their brand and operations. Better technology, data, and products now exist that enable this to be accomplished at a reasonable cost. Securitec has formulated a ‘starter monitoring’ package to help CRAs tap into these new opportunities with their clients and prospects.

“Some of the monitoring solutions in the market are limited to only arrest record or national record database sources,” states Jessica James, President of Securitec. “These sources provide a partial solution but alone do not paint the highest quality picture for monitoring. Arrest records are a good leading risk indicator but have coverage gaps and do not include the actual criminal records that matter the most. And not all criminal cases start with an arrest or jail record. National criminal record database products provide good historical criminal records but also have known coverage gaps and are not updated on a frequent basis.”

“Most arrest record and criminal record database products do not even include Federal records which identify critical offense types employers need to know about including fraud, hijacking, robbery, kidnapping, hate crimes, and more,” adds Chad Lafon, Vice President Securitec. “There are also many online public statewide criminal record systems that have the latest criminal records we can monitor in real-time that are not available in arrest record or database only sources. We have now combined all of the above into a robust starter package that CRAs can offer their clients to give them the best possible nationwide risk monitoring in today’s marketplace for the lowest monthly cost.”
