According to Steven Spencer, vice president of transportation solutions, HireRight DAC Edition was developed leveraging existing intellectual property and countless hours of observation and discussions with transportation companies. “We started with our award-winning solution, HireRight Enterprise™, as a base,” said Spencer. “We then worked closely with our transportation-industry customers to identify key product requirements and gather critical feedback on version iterations. The result is what we believe to be a new benchmark for screening in the Transportation Industry; a solution that makes it easier to manage a comprehensive screening program, while improving process efficiency, reducing costs and promoting regulatory compliance.”
