Asurint Adds Massachusetts to Growing List of States Where Clients Can Instantly Clear Candidates from a Background Check On-Demand

Back to Blog

CLEVELAND, January 16, 2019 - ​Asurint today announced that their proprietary background screening technology has the capability to evaluate and provide an on-demand instant clear on individuals for the entire state of Massachusetts. This allows hiring managers to extend offers to candidates in hours, not the days that are standard in the hiring industry. A “clear” happens when a background check performed on an individual does not return any criminal history results in the specified jurisdiction of the search.

“Massachusetts is a testament of Asurint’s ability to work with the courts and provide our clients the most up-to-date and accurate information.” said Co-Founder & CEO Gregg Gay.  “Last year, our instant clear coverage of Massachusetts only included Worcester and Middlesex counties. Now, we have 100% coverage of the state. That’s an amazing achievement, and I’m looking forward to seeing more announcements like this for more states across the nation in the near future.”

Massachusetts is the most populous state in the New England region of the U.S. with nearly 7 million residents spanning across 14 counties. Historically, turnaround time for background checks was slow in Massachusetts due to the manually-intensive process of retrieving court files and dramatically reduced court budgets. Background screen results in Massachusetts normally take over two days to return results on a single search. With the help of Asurint’s technology, clear results are now available instantly.

Asurint provides instant clears on background screens for many other states such as Washington, Oregon, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New Mexico, Florida and more.
