Nationwide Net Plus
There are many issues dealing with and around criminal records. One of the significant issues that both the private and public sector face regarding the searching and matching of criminal records is that the results are only as good as the data that was submitted. Due to the fact that criminal records are public data, records are searched by name and date of birth. If the name was entered incorrectly, was falsified, misspelled, or has been changed, that will adversely affect the results of the criminal search.
The Nationwide Net Plus search counters this problem in a simple and cost effective way. When the information is entered into the system, VICTIG seamlessly runs a social security trace which shows all names associated with that social security number from hundreds of data sources. All of those potential names with varying dates of birth are instantly run back through the Nationwide Net Search (criminal and sex offender) at no incremental cost. As always, all potential hits are adjudicated by our criminal experts before the results are passed back to you.
This search helps with falsified information, mistyped names, maiden names, errors from the clerk, data entry problems, multiple names, and hyphenated names. For the month of March, company-wide, our customers are experiencing a 20.9% hit ratio with this search.
With a recent comprehensive study showing that 51% of candidates have lied on their resume and application, organizations cannot afford to not be vigilant. Contact us today about learning more about this product!
