HireRight And NowHIRE Offer Integrated Solution To Improve Talent Acquisition Efficiency And Employment Screening Compliance

IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 19, 2013 – HireRight, a leader in on-demand employment background checks, drug and health screening and electronic Form I-9 and E-Verify solutions, and nowHIRE.com, an industry-leading applicant tracking system for hourly and salaried workforces, have entered into a strategic partnership to offer an end-to-end integrated solution that offers recruiting, sourcing, employment screening, drug screening, assessments, HRIS integration, WOTC integration and talent management on a single platform.

The strategic partnership will give organizations the ability to order HireRight background checks and drug and health screening solutions through nowHIRE’s applicant tracking system to optimize recruiting workflows and improve compliance. The solution, developed jointly by the two companies, is designed to help customers streamline their workforce acquisition process. 

Salmon Companies, the largest ground transportation supplier to the United States Postal Service, was looking for an applicant tracking system that would help them capture and manage applicants’ information and enable them to quickly perform audits for their affirmative action plan. They selected nowHIRE because of this capability and the added benefit that they were working with HireRight, the company’s background screening provider, to build an integrated solution.

“When you are competing to hire and onboard qualified drivers with large, public fleet carriers, time is critical,” said Joe Self, director of recruiting, Salmon Companies. “The safe drivers get snatched up quickly so we had to streamline our processes to be more efficient. The integrated solution allows us to initiate background requests directly from nowHIRE and select the package that we want in just a few clicks. It saves us time, an average of 10 minutes per applicant, and that is crucial when you run 10-15 background reports a day. It has allowed us to process drivers and extend job offers more quickly.” 

HireRight joined forces with nowHIRE to combine a highly configurable applicant tracking system that offers hourly and salaried workflows and recruitment tools with its employment and drug screening solutions. The integration offers a flexible solution for managing the complete screening and employment eligibility verification process, including ordering, management reports, document upload capabilities, and compliance tools through nowHIRE’s Web-based talent acquisition and applicant tracking system to help streamline the hiring process.

“By coupling these solutions, organizations can dramatically streamline their recruiting processes, while automating employment screening for non-exempt and exempt employees from a single platform,” said Joseph N. Impastato, II, president and CEO, nowHIRE. “The seamless integration of these solutions will produce cost savings and an almost instantaneous ROI for our clients, thus adding to the profitability of their overall operations; mission accomplished.”

“Integrating employment screening with the nowHIRE applicant tracking system, which is designed specifically for hourly and salaried workforce automation, enables our customers to improve their hiring quality and talent acquisition effectiveness,” said Mary O’Loughlin, senior director of strategic alliances, HireRight. “The net result is dramatic improvement to overall operational efficiencies and compliance.”
