How It Works

High-quality background checks are a crucial step in the hiring process. Employers need to ensure they are hiring the right people for the business.

Application Researchers, powered by deverus, partners with Ultimate Software to offer a comprehensive suite of cloud-based background screening services to give you peace of mind in your hiring decisions with accurate, reliable results and robust tools to help maintain compliance.

Through our bi-directional integration, recruiters and hiring managers can quickly and easily initiate a pre-employment background check on candidates directly within UltiPro® Recruiting.

Once a background check is initiated, information entered into UltiPro Recruiting is pre-populated in the background check form, reducing duplicate data entry.

Then, an email is sent to the candidates to provide any additional information and to obtain consent.

With seamless access and an interactive workflow for managing background screening requirements, our combined solution offers a fast, simple, and intuitive user experience for both applicants and HR staff, helping to reduce time-to-hire and increase your quality of hires.
