Asurint Announces Instant Background Check Clears for California

Back to Blog

CLEVELAND, October 18, 2018 - Asurint today announced that their proprietary background screening technology now has the capability to evaluate and provide an instant clear on individuals from counties representing approximately 92% of the population of California, allowing hiring managers to extend offers to candidates in hours, not the days that are standard in the 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. By the end of 2018, Asurint expects the ability to deliver an instant clear in California covering at least 95% of the population.

“Asurint strives to provide HR professionals with fast, accurate and compliant background check results by leveraging technology for a consistent high-quality experience,” said Co-Founder & CEO Gregg Gay. “Providing instant clears for the majority of California is a major win for Asurint’s clients who want to dramatically reduce their time to hire.” 

California is the most populous state in the United States with nearly 40 million residents spanning 58 counties. Historically, turnaround time for background checks was slow in California due to the manual-intensive labor of retrieving court files and dramatically reduced court budgets. 

“Many courts in California were not using an electronic case management system,” said Gay. “Asurint proactively consulted  with many of these courts and provided assistance into the structure of the court’s data, paving the way to the impressive turnaround time we’re seeing now.” 

Counties in California, such as San Diego, Santa Clara and Sutter would normally take upwards of 3 days to return results on a single search. With the help of Asurint, clear results are now available instantly. To learn more, visit https://choose.asurint.com/california-3/.
